Putting acknowledgement footnote

Postby LyxQuestions » Sat Nov 17, 2018 3:37 am

I know how to put footnotes in lyx.

When I put footnote, in the pdf, I see numbered superscript like 1,2,3..

But on the first page, it seems people put asterisk right next to author name or title (*) and footnote is generated.

How do you do that?

Make the first page a proper title page with a title page Lyx inset/feature or \maketitle or \begin{titlepage} ... \end{titlepage}. Or use the \thanks command in author names, such as \author{First Name\thanks{a footnote}}.
