(1) Divide each chapter into a separate story (i.e., break the text
thread between the end of the last chapter and the new chapter). Then
your footnotes will begin at 1 for each chatper. This is what I would
(2) Assign a new section in the pages palette at the beginning of each
chatper, and set your footnote numbering to restart with each section.
The disadvantage of this is that if your text reflows, the sections
won't be in the right place any more.
I tried to assign a new section but no matter what I try the footnote numbering stays the same. It worked with InDesign CS6 (which is what I used with the last book I designed) but not with CC 2014. Any ideas?
And if I try the alternative, how do I break the text thread?
