      var $ = jQuery,
      totalText = "Total Selected = ", /* TOTAL TEXT TO BE UPDATED */
      total = $("input[type='checkbox']:checked").length,
      footer = $(".cm-instructions:last");
      footer.text(totalText + total);
      total = $("input[type='checkbox']:checked").length;
      footer.text(totalText + total);
  3. For the code to work you need to:
    1. Click on the '+ Footnote' button.
