# Author footnote with number

I would like to schedule the authors with numbers and not symbols. Using the code below the authors are marked with symbols. Is important that the description appears as a footnote.

\documentclass[a4paper, 11pt]{article}

\title{Bla}
\author{Rafael \footnotemark[1]}

\begin{document}
\footnotetext[1]{Note...}
\maketitle

Blablabla
\end{document}


It's easy with the titling package:

\documentclass[a4paper, 11pt]{article}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage{titling}
\title{Bla}
\author{Rafael \thanks{Note…}}

\thanksmarkseries{arabic}

\begin{document}

\maketitle

Blablabla
\end{document}
