Description John 2011-08-12 12:21:22 UTC
Endnote numbers return to lower case Roman even after setting to Arabic numerals.

Footnote separator line thickness returns to 50pt when moving to next page of text.

With no page numbers set, page numbers get inserted in the footnote region in lower right corner.

Can't set footnote continuation as a separator line between margins which is a standard manuscript method.

Footnotes as they stand are really not useable for a manuscript for the above reasons.

Note to John, if you have more than one footnote per paragraph, you will want to go back to 3.3.x, due to: Bug 39510 - CRASH closing document with footnotes.

Going back to 3.3 probably will not fix your roman numeral bug, though. Bug 40101 affects in 3.3.

This is (if anything) a Writer bug or a list of Writer bugs, therefore changed 'Component'.
