hi, i have formatted footnotes in my document the way that footnotes start below a 0,5pt line which is of the same width as the text frame. but with long footnotes which must be split the problem is that i can't apply the same format to the line above the footnote which is split, the line is formatted automatically as a 1pt line with a length about three fifths of the the witdth of the text frame. how can i apply the same fotmat to all lines above footnotes?
No, that's not it. The second tab in the "Footnote Options" dialog has a similar -- counterintuitive -- option to set "Continued" footnotes' options. Look for the dropdown "list" near the bottom third. It switches the settings in there.
i got it, thank you
