Subject Re: OO Writer, footnote question (additional info)
Date Tue, 14 Feb 2012 17:29:34 GMT
Oh, I just noticed something else about my question.  Those with the 
correctly-black number show (when I click the mouse on them) that the style 
is "Default" even though it is a footnote.  Those with the grayed numbers 
all show that the style is "Footnote."  ("Default" is the style I'm using on 
the main document.)

Actually, this was originally a WordPerfect, and then a Word file, so even 
those footnotes which show as being "Default" style are in all different 
layouts.  Some are center justified, some disappear off to the left, etc. 
Some just show three dots and no text in the footnote at all, although if I 
click on the anchor, the full text of the footnote is revealed with the 
pointy-hand.  So, the whole situation is a little whacko.  I can fix these 
other things, but I don't know how a footnote can be "Default," and not 
"Footnote" in its Style.

Thanks much!
