Changing footnote superscript from number to "cross" or other symbol?

How do I change the footnote format from number to symbol? I’m using numerical superscripts for my endnotes, but I also have footnotes in my chapters that will reside at the bottom of the page and should just be keyed to a “cross” or other symbol, so as to avoid confusion.

I came up against this. I don’t think there’s a way to do it in Scrivener. I always compile to RTF and open the compiled document in Nisus Writer Pro; it is easy to change the footnote marking there in the style sheet. Surely it must be possible to do the same post-compilation in Word.

Sorry I can’t help more.


Thanks, Mark. The frustrating thing is I know I did this before, but I can’t remember and can’t for the life of me find any instruction. This site [/url] shows how to change the formatting for foonotes, but I can’t figure out how to navigate to the pane that gets me those options. Any ideas?

In other words, how do I find this:

Compile -> New Format (found with the plus at the bottom left of the screen)

You can also edit an existing compile format by right-clicking, and then choosing the Edit (or Duplicate and Edit) option. There’s no need to create a completely new format for relatively minor tweaks like this.
