Typographical devices, instead of numbers, for footnotes

2010-05-20 Thread Frederick Noronha
Is it possible for me to use typographical devices [like *, †, ‡, §, ‖, ¶] instead of number for footnotes, as I have end-notes as well using numbers? Many thanks! FN Frederick Noronha +91-9822122436 +91-832-2409490

Many thanks Uwe for all your useful tips. Wouldn't it be better for Lyx itself to allow for low-res PDF output, printable PDF output and what not? Do Acrobat and Foxit PDF Editor work with GNU/Linux? FN Frederick Noronha +91-9822122436 +91-832-2409490 On 21 May 2010 06:55, Uwe Stöhr uwesto
