[Libreoffice-ux-advise] [Bug 90921] FOOTNOTES: Allow to place footnotes at the bottom of the text

> From a typographical point of view, I would use endnotes

This is not an option given our school style guides

> From content it is very questionable, to use a footnote that is longer as one line.
> If the content is so large, that it needs several lines, then it belongs to the text.

Not in doctoral writing. Some content footnotes in dissertations can run for
over a page in length!

> disable Widow control

Widow control is required by the school style guides

> I would not follow the idea to put footnotes directly after the text.

Our school style guides require footnotes directly after the text--this is not
an option, idea, or suggestion for us, but a requirement.

> I guess, that the requirement only means to use footnotes and not endnotes.

I assure you the requirement is as I have described, and we are interpreting
our school style guides correctly, as (1) we have been penalized on our prior
submissions for failing to conform to this requirement (and merely using
footnotes at the bottom of the page with a gap between text and footnotes), (2)
we have spoken with the people who wrote the style guides and confirmed the
requirement, and (3) the option is available in MS Word, WordPerfect, etc.
which shows that such a requirement is not unique to our school style guides.
