Synchronize footnote settings in books and number across document
Regarding using books and footnotes: I really, really wish the footnote settings were something you could synchronize when synching your book. Also, I wish there was an option to continue numbering throughout the individual documents. Currently, if you do not have your whole document threaded, it will restart the footnote numbering, so I have to set it to restart numbering at each page (or section).
I frequently have books with a dozen different chapters and would like the footnotes to number sequentially within each chapter; and it would be one less thing to remember to edit if the document footnote settings would synch across all chapters in the book.
100% Making footnote numbering easily accessible and part of the already available numbering panel would eliminate errors and be a huge time saver.
Some books I work on have have documents that are shared with multiple books, so automatic numbering, like page numbering, is needed.
Having the setting available at document AND book level is critical.
Some clients want numbering consecutive throughout the book; some want each chapter to start at 1. Often these chapters have had to broken into parts, so the ability to restart at a specified document within the book is needed.
