Yes. We have clients that want footnotes sequenced in order across the entire document (not restarted at each section or chapter) as well as clients that have different footnotes for tables on a page that might have other footnotes related to the narrative on the same page.
At the very least, it would be helpful to have the ability to tell all footnotes not to restart at a particular section/chapter, or to tell an individual footnote to start at a particular number. Even though my checkbox to restart at every page/spread/section is not checked, it still restarts. It seems that if you want footnotes to never restart but to continually increment across the whole document, you have to thread every thing together which is a huge problem if you have section dividers or other pages between chapters and the client adds/removes text causing everything to reflow.
