Screenshots for comparison
After changing (formatting) footnote's 'space to text', such as 0.1 inch, as long as before closing the word document the changes are always reflected correctly when trying to change it again.
However, if the document was closed and re-opened, when changing footnate's 'space to text', it wasn't defaulted to what has been changed, namely 0.1 inch, but was defaulted to 0.04 inch.
Can you please attach a test document?
And also give a step by step description?
From you current writing and screenshot I have the impression that you do this in Word ?? ;)

Dear Cor Nouws,
Thanks for your prompt respond. Yes, it happened in LibreOffice Writer where I chose for 'Component' list box.
Hereby, I attach two doucments (.doc and .odt) for your testing and understanding. They are the same, but just saved with different extensions. The steps needed can be found inside the documents too.
Hope this will make everything clear and easy for everyone.
Thanks for the files and info there.
I confirm the problem in 18.104.22.168 on Ubuntu.
Set to new.
TODO : test in older versions...
I see it already is a problem in 3.3.0.
(I'm not sure if Word formats do support that setting, Though one would expect it.)

I would say it should be. Because as mentioned in the test case prepared, it doesn't happen when saving one's document with the extension of '.odt'. Therefore it's logically a function left out for '.doc' and '.docx' versions.
Ah, I guess this is a duplicate of bug 71984

Definitely not a duplicate.
NEEDINFO: Does MSO even have the same concept of empty space before the footnote section? I didn't find anything browsing through Word2003. Needed is a proof document or instructions on how to create something like this in Word.
