Thanks Art and others who replied! Such a great solution. It does drive my page count up (I wish there was also a way to make the footnote number itself not as "super" of a superscript in line with the text), but definitely a relief to easily fix the problem! How could I have missed that little checkbox.

Every time I add a footnote, it increases the line spacing just for the line that includes the footnote reference number. It's driving one of my product owners crazy, so I'm looking for a solution. We noticed that in Word 2007, this problem is solved by having a little larger default line spacing, into which a footnote ref number comfortably fits. I tried increasing the line spacing of the paragraph in FM, though, and it hasn't helped. I've also tried adjusting the footnote settings in Format > Document > Footnote properties, but the only thing I can do there to help is adjust the position to Superscript, Baseline, or Subscript, and although Baseline results in no line spacing change, the number no longer looks like a footnote. I'm grateful for any suggestions! If you reply to me directly I'll receive it the fastest, since I have Framers set on Digest mode. Thanks!
