# How can I get LibreOffice to 'number' footnotes in the order *, †, ‡, § etc.?

With LaTeX, I can do:

\documentclass[10pt]{article}
\usepackage[symbol*]{footmisc}

\begin{document}
One\footnote{f1} Two \footnote{f2} Three \footnote{f3} Four \footnote{f4}
\end{document}


And get *, †, ‡, § ... as consecutive footnote markers. MS-Word has this feature too - an alternative footnote numbering scheme. How can I achieve the same with LibreOffice?

PS - Shouldn't the OpenOffice and LibreOffice tags be merged?

-
LibreOffice is a fork from OpenOffice, so they are 2 separate softwares and their tags shouldn't be merged imho. –  m4573r Sep 26 '12 at 21:50
@m4573r: OpenOffice-tagged questions are probably about both, and LibreOffice seems to be the more popular. But, well, never mind. –  einpoklum Sep 27 '12 at 7:05
