I'm using Microsoft Word 2016 for formatting my paper. I'm trying to use different footnote numbering sequences for the title page and main body. More specifically, I want to use special characters such as *, #, etc., for footnotes appearing in the title page, and the usual Arabic numbers for footnotes appearing in the main body. For an example of footnotes in the title page, see below.
Let me further clarify what I'm trying to do: It doesn't have to be the title page. Consider this: You want to have the special character footnote numbering for the first two sections of your paper, and start the footnote numbering anew from the third section through the end of the paper. The first numbering sequence doesn't have to be the special character; it can be the Arabic numbering. The point is that you are starting a new footnote numbering sequence afresh at some page of your paper.
