I’ve asked for footnotes for a year
There’s now a hack for superscript numerals, which is great. But you need smaller size type for footnotes and for cited text. Medium keeps ignoring this.
Something else that bothers me: Medium uses a sans serif typeface for notes. Serifs speed up horizontal eye movement, and aid both reading and comprehension. That’s why newspapers are set in serif type.
Designers who read know this. Designers who don’t, don’t.
