Description aparan 2005-02-03 08:03:05 UTC
Open a document in OO.o writer, Go to Insert Footnotes.  The dialog has options
to specify the type of foot note [footnote/endnote] the numbering [character,
number etc.], etc.  Now if the user want to format the footnote/endnote he will
have to go to Tools > Footnote... Why can't we provide an 'Settings' button to
this dialog from where the additional formatting of footnotes/endnotes could be
done at the same time. 

Also I believe that the Tools > Footnotes... is wrongly placed.  It is about
formatting / setting up the style and other related features of 'Footnote', I
feel this could be placed under the Format menu, If I am not wrong. 

Further, the 'Footnote' option of Format > Page  dialog could also be moved to
this 'Footnote Settings' dialog with some adjustments/realigning.

A reasonable extension to the Insert.Footnote dialog. Easier way to find
configuration of footnotes.
