Dynamic Endnotes and/or Footnotes

Is there a plan for dynamic endnotes and/or footnotes. That would make this very feasible as a rough-draft academic platform. I even like to put footnotes in my notes.

Footnotes are already supported:

Footnotes[^1] are added in-text like so ...
And with a matching footnote definition at the end of the document:

[^1]: 
Footnotes are the mind killer.  
Footnotes are the little-death that brings total obliteration.  
I will face my footnotes.

Markdown is awesome!

[^2]: Denotative.

Becomes, this:

Just from running this:

Thanks so much. Yes, I knew footnotes and endnotes were supported, but I was looking for dynamic footnotes. In other words, if I added a footnote before the [^1] the previous [^1] would automatically change to [^2].

Not that I know of, but a plugin could be written to add this functionality (if it doesn’t already exist).

A quick search of the plugin store yields both of these, which seem to accomplish what you have asked and more:

Thanks so much Sir!
