While using a "Tools -> Footnotes and Endnotes -> After" to set a proper indent betwen footnote number and footnote itself, I found that it's not work for DOC.
When I save ny file as ODT, all looks quiet good. But when I save it as Word 97-2003 DOC, whatever characters set in "Tools -> Footnotes and Endnotes", completely disappears both from menu settings and from text itself.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set Tools -> Footnotes and Endnotes -> After and type whatever (some spaces, f.e.)
2. Enter a footnote in text
3. Save file as ODT
4. Reload ODT file. All looks good: there are "after" characters
5. Save file as Word 97-2003 DOC
6. Reload DOC file. "After" characters disappears both in Tools menu window and in document's footnotes
Characters set in "After" section disappears and not applied to text
Characters from "After" section is saved and applied in text

I gave a try at https://www.howtogeek.com/359187/how-to-use-footnotes-and-endnotes-in-microsoft-word/ to create a brand new doc in Word 365.
I don't see the options "Before" or "After" for "endnote" or "footnote" in Word.
Perhaps we lose "Before" and "After" info because doc and docx format don't have these notions?
