Default Char style and footnotes reference style superscript - applying character style removes superscript

I am working on a certain paragraph. Gave it a formatted style. added footnotes. Everything fine, the footnote "numbers" are supertext as they should be.



Then later on I decide to give certain parts of the paragraph a different char style. When I apply that, all the footnote referrals get formated as regular text.

What I want to do is format the text with my new style but leave the footnote referral as supertext.

Can it be done?

Thank you

Susan

Character Styles are not particularly well implemented on Word. You can't overlap them for instance - and a character style was applied to the footnote reference when you created it. Therefore if you then apply a different character style to the same content then the first char style is replaced by the new one.

When you apply a character style to text that has local formatting already, Word removes that local formatting while applying the character style - BUT you can THEN reapply local formatting such as superscript to that entry to see both the character style + those local attributes.

That would only occur if you applied your character Style to the footnote reference.
