In the org manual v9.3 on page 139 it explains how to renumber the
footnotes. I am presuming from reading it that it requires me to ````C-c
C-x r````.

But in my case that isn't working because I did have that key
combination set to 'org-mark-ring-goto'.

I have since reconfigured 'org-mark-ring-goto' to use 'C-c C-c r', but
how do I find what the default code-string for 'C-c C-x r' is please?
And then, how do I show it in my config please?

Thanks
  Sharon.

I don't spot any mention of 'C-c C-x r'.  The table in the footnote
section that lists keys is describing the menu that org-footnote-action
(bound to 'C-c C-x f' by default) shows when it's called with a prefix
argument.  So, the full sequence to get to 'r' listed in that table
would be 'C-u C-c C-x f r`.

Thanks for replying Kyle.

I'm using 'C-u C-c C-x f r' and it isn't changing the footnote
numbering! I am adding file-2 to file-1 and then using the key mantra,
but the footnotes are not changing. In file-1 the last footnote is 756,
and in file-2 the first footnote is 670 (I've no idea why it suddenly
starts at 670, but it does.)

So where should the cursor be when using the key mantra please? On the
new chapter heading? On the first [fn:670]? Or where please?

Thanks
  Sharon.

Hopefully someone will correct me if I'm mistaken, but I don't think
renumbering will help in the situation you describe.  If you're
concatenating two files with overlapping footnotes, I don't see how Org
would know which reference belongs to which definition.

My understanding is that renumbering is useful in cases where the
references are no longer an ordered, unbroken sequence.  Say you have
this file:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
Pellentesque dapibus.  Aliquam feugiat [fn:1] tellus.  Nulla
facilisis.  Phasellus in [fn:2].

* Footnotes

[fn:1] Vel tortor sodales tellus ultricies commodo.

[fn:2] Proin quam nisl, tincidunt.
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

With point after "Nulla", you insert a footnote ('C-c C-x f'):

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
Pellentesque dapibus.  Aliquam feugiat [fn:1] tellus.  Nulla [fn:3]
facilisis.  Phasellus in [fn:2].

* Footnotes

[fn:3] Nullam libero mauris.

[fn:1] Vel tortor sodales tellus ultricies commodo.

[fn:2] Proin quam nisl, tincidunt.
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

By default, the numbering isn't auto-adjusted.  This is where
renumbering with 'C-u C-c C-x f r' comes in.  Calling that gives:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
Pellentesque dapibus.  Aliquam feugiat [fn:1] tellus.  Nulla [fn:2]
facilisis.  Phasellus in [fn:3].

* Footnotes

[fn:2] Nullam libero mauris.

[fn:1] Vel tortor sodales tellus ultricies commodo.

[fn:3] Proin quam nisl, tincidunt.
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---


Back to your problem of combining files.  My approach would be

  * Do a regexp search in file A and replace all "[fn:N]" with
    "[fn:aN]", making them named references.

    Repeat with file B, creating "[fn:bN]" references.

  * Combine file A and file B.  Then convert the references into numbers
    by normalizing with 'C-c C-x f n'.

But perhaps others can suggest a better solution.
