Summary 0011282: Footnote mark in original text frame cannot be formatted
Revision 2014-07-08 17:27 by Kunda
Description It's impossible to change the formatting of the footnote mark in the continuous text, and there's not even a separate style for the marks in the text. Instead, it takes its formatting from the previous glyph. That's unfortunate, because a user may have very good reasons to give the mark a different formatting. The most common task of reformatting a footnote mark is when it has been inserted after a word in bold or italics. As it currently works, one has to insert the footnote first and then apply the formatting to the word.

Scribus is not alone in using the formatting of the previous glyph (same behaviour: AbiWord, Viva Designer, LibreOffice, Calligra Words; TextMaker sticks with its default style), but at least those other programs allow for changing the formatting, either via direct formatting, or via a character style, or both.

So, what we need is:

1) An option to create a character style for the marks in the text.

2) A default style for the marks in the text (See also bug 0011234).

3) Direct formatting of a single mark.
