Description folkertvanderbeek 2018-03-20 08:00:10 UTC
Footnote numbering is restarted after a new heading when the footnotes are positioned at the end of the document, even when counting should be done per document and not per chapter.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add footnotes in a document with headings (style Heading 1)
2. Tools -> Footnotes and Endnotes -> Tab Footnotes: Counting "per document" and Position "End of document"

Actual Results:  
Text body1
Text body1

1 Footnote
1 Footnote

Expected Results:
Text body1
Text body2

1 Footnote
2 Footnote

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Additional Info:
It works as expected when the footnotes are converted to endnotes. However, this is tedious because every footnote has to be converted manually.

You wrote a clear bug, but you seem to have failed to:
- search for existing bugs, both open and closed
- test with new LO version, preferably daily master that will not mess with regular LO instalallation https://dev-builds.libreoffice.org/daily/master/

I guess it's a dupe of Bug 43370 solved in 5.3.
Your 5.2 is old. You may install or use PPA 5.3.
