Description Daniele 2019-01-29 00:25:24 UTC
I have found that now Writer does not let me change the footnote style in the footer from character to anchor. When I select that (unfortunately at my University, the footnote numbers must be in superscript) and I press OK, nothing happens and it stays the same. I have found a "temporary" workaround in setting for the footnote in the footer to set it as endnote anchor and boom the number is in superscript. However, when I do insert a new footnote, all the footnotes numbers goes back to "character" style. Therefore, the only way to make it work is to ignore it, finish the document, then use the workaround method and do not touch the document and just save it. 

Using LibreOffice on Mac OSX High Sierra 10.14.3

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Insert footnote
2. Go to Tools, footnotes and endnotes, in styles change the footnote area to anchor
3.Insert a new footnote

Actual Results:
Nothing happen

Expected Results:
Should change te footnote area number into superscript

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: Yes

OpenGL enabled: Yes
