    Aligning footnote numbers to the left

    apylyser

      Hello,

       

      I am currently in the process of designing the thesis of my sister. The text - imported from word - contains several footnotes. The problem is when I placed the word document the footnote reference numbers were automatically aligned to the right. My sister would prefer to have them on the left like it was in her word document.

      How would I be able to change the footnote reference numbers from the right to the left side? (also see attached image, green circle).

       

      Another question not directly related to InDesign but general page layout: is 2mm "minimum space before first footnote" enough in this type of publication or what is the general distance taken for this?

      Thank you in advance
