Go to Type > Document Footnote Options, and near the top left is Numbering: Style: and the dropdown gives you daggers, if you like.
My scenario is before i start numbering footnotes i want to insert a footnote with astericks. Is this possible in Document Footnote Option? [For example: *Special Footnote; 1 Sample Footenote One; 2 Sample Footnote two. . . ] Any idea?
Unfortunately, ID's footnotes are still very primitive, and you cannot mix numbering styles in a sequence. Add your asterisk note manually.
