I am glad to see all of the new changes coming to Bear. I played with the footnotes a little bit and I have a suggestion.
When adding a footnote that comes in the text before other footnotes, the numbers should change themselves and re-order themselves in the list of footnotes. For example: if I already have a footnote 1, and I add a footnote before footnote 1 in the text, footnote 1 should become footnote 2 and the new one should be footnote 1.
That is the way it works in most word processors. Since Bear is venturing into the word-processing territory, it would be nice for it to work as well as word processors do.
