I'm working on a journal in which there is a lot of footnotes. (17 articles, aprox 30 pages each with at least 30 footnotes). I use superscript nested style to make the number of every footnote in footer superscript, but I wonder if there is a way in which I can add a space after footnote number and before text (so I don't have to do it manually). Punctuation space would suit me well, but I'm not very good with grep styles so I don't know how exactly to formulate it so it works.
I assume you're talking about InDesign. Grep styles do not currently (as of CC2018) support editing. They can only identify and apply styles to the matched result.
Thanks for the update.
Here is a way to add space after the footnotes in InDesign:
- Go to Text>Footnote Options
- Check "Show Prefix/Suffix in: Select "Footnote Reference," "Footnote Text," or "Both Reference and Text"as needed. (experiment to find the right one for your needs.)
- Enter space characters in the Prefix and Suffix fields.
- Click OK.
That should do it.
