This question already has an answer here:
I would like to use two types of footnotes. The first are standard footnotes used throughout the body of the text and which are numbered sequentially. The second are footnotes used in a few chapter titles, which I want to have a single static symbol (e.g. *), these should not increment and should not interact with nor affect the bodytext footnotes.
If possible, and a simple method exists, I would like to avoid using another package.
I had thought of using
\footnotetext, but I am not sure how. Any suggestions?
