Ok, so, scrap the last statement - it's because of the fact that the footnotes are numbered based on the column on the page. On the first page of the table, the first footnote is placed in Col 3, the second, third, and fourth are placed in Col 4 and they are fine. The footnote on the SECOND page is placed in Col 1, so it becomes "1" and the others are renumbered accordingly - but that won't work - I don't want my users to have to scroll down to page 2 to see "1", then back up to page 1 to see "2", "3", and "4" - I want the footnote numbering to appear in the order a user would scan the page - left to right, then top to bottom as they read - and for the life of me, FM seems stuck on basing the numbers on columns!

I need to insert Footnotes into this table. I have scoured FM's OLH and can't find the answer to this question. When I insert footnotes on page 1 of 4 of the table, the footnotes are numbered based on the column on the page. For example, if I place a footnote in Col 1 on page 1 and it is footnote "1", then when I place a footnote in Col 2 of the table on page 1, it is numbered "2" as I would expect. However, if I then scroll down the page a bit and place a third footnote on page 1, but back in Col 1, this footnote is NOT numbered "3" - instead, it becomes "2" and what was footnote #2 now becomes footnote #3. Ok, I was wanting to place footnotes markers sequentially from left to right, top to bottom (the way people read my English manuals), but instead, it's top to bottom, then left to right the way FM does it - Fine, I will deal with that but what I can't figure out is the footnote numbering on the subsequent pages of the table. If I place footnote IN THE SAME TABLE, but on a different page, like Page #2, then the Footnote numbering starts over - instead of being #4, it is #1 again. ARGH! What is FM NOT recognizing the continuation of the footnotes as I am placing them in the same table? I have looked at Format > Document > Numbering for the doc. Specifically for Table Footnote, but there are no options like there are for just Footnote. I need to be able to add sequential footnotes across a multiple page table and for the life of me, since FM controls the footnote numbering (and the FM OLH makes that painfully clear), I am about to resort to manually numbering - but that would be a maintenance nightmare.
