Default Footnote reference numbers precede by superscript '(' and follow w/ superscript ')'


I wish to set a global setting so that each reference number superscript will be preceded by superscript '(' and followed by superscript ')'.

I have been searching for both of these online for an hour. The only thing I found is this reference, which shows how to do a find and replace of superscript FN number, with an un-superscripted one, followed by a period. This may perhaps be able to adapted to my needs somehow? Need some guidance on this...

After the document has been completed, you can search for ^f and replace with (^&) in the Find & Replace dialog box (Ctrl+H).

If you want something more sophisticated, a macro will be required.

This is perfect, will absolutely achieve the needful. I will definitely use this going forward in my future documents.

Just one follow-up question on this: Not knowing the way to do it with find and replace, in the current document I've already added the () manually, to 150 of 340 footnotes in this document. If I now do the find and replace command you've given, it will add the () to all, including adding an extra set to the ones I've already done. Won't it?

You are right: my simple suggestion assumes that you only need to Find & Replace once, after document editing has been completed.

If you do the Find & Replace operation more than once, there will be duplicates.
