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.

        In the paragraph format, check the Fixed Space checkbox. That
turns off the extra space used by the superscript characters.
