[NTG-context] Footnotes and endnotes

Hello,

I have some problems with footnotes and endnotes.

I have two kinds of footnotes:
Those by the original author and those by the translator.

I want to show the translator notes in a different way.
Right now I have the footnote in green, but the footnote marker in the text does change neither font nor color?
Shouldn’t the marker be green and bold?
Setting numberconversion works, but the other options seem to be without effect.

I want to include longer note as endnotes.
I can change the marker shown with the notes to (1) but he marker in the text does not change.
Thus you can’t distinguish between a footnote and an endnote.

I tried a footnote within a footnote, that didn’t work, should it?
(I don’t actually need this, I was just curious.)

When I define commentnote based on endnote I get the same numbering.
How can I either
- use different counters for both kind of notes or
- print both notes with the same placenotes command, in the right order?

Greetings
Axel
