I'm using LibreOffice on Debian Linux. After I create a footnote on a page, say page 1, and create a footnote, let's say Footnote # 1, how can I create a second footnote to reference the same footnote #1? All I want for the second footnote is a superscript numeral 1 in the body of the text.

o Go to Insert | Cross-reference... | Cross-references.
o Under Type, select Footnotes.
o Under Selection, select your existing footnote.
o Click Insert.

Okay, I got that. But it doesn't enter the number a superscript, it enters it the same size as the text. I have to highlight the number, right click on it, then select Style > Superscript. This is a little better, but still tedious.

That's the whole solution, I think - albeit with the long-standing bug you describe. It's a simple matter, though, to add the superscript effect - best done using the standard "Footnote anchor" character style.
