How about Tools -> Footnotes/Endnotes... ? Are settings there the
same in both documents?

No they were not.  In Tools -> Footnotes/Endnotes for one of the
documents there was no period in the ‘After’ space. Putting the period
there gave me the results I wanted..

It then occurred to me that I may not need to use an Outline/Numbering
style in footnotes; so I removed it from the Footnotes paragraph style
in both documents.  Sure enough, there was no change; I did not need
it.  To format the footnote the way I want it all I have to do is set
the ‘Indents and spacing’ option in the footnote paragraph style to
Before text: 0.50 cm; After text: 0.00; First line -0.50 cm.

I then did what I should have done before posting to the list -- open
the Footnotes entries in the LibreOffice help.  Mostly what I needed
to know was there.

I also discovered that there is a page style called Footnote.  I
really wonder whether I need to use it because there is a Footnotes
tab in the page style used for the whole page including the settings
for the line between the body text and the footnote text.

One setting I could not find was to change the footnote anchor.  Is it
possible to use a symbol such as an asterisk instead of a number as
the anchor?

Finally in Tools -> Footnotes I could not understand the purpose of
the character styles for the text and footnote areas.  Since however
the defaults for these are ‘Footnote Anchor’ and ‘Footnote Characters’
respectively, perhaps I don’t need to.

Thanks very much for the help.
