# Changing footnote label font in KOMA classes

How can I change the font used for the footnote marker in the body of the text, especially in the KOMA classes?

KOMA-Script lets me change the footnote font label in the footnote, e.g.

\addtokomafont{footnotelabel}{\sffamily}


but I can't see how to change the label in the text.

A reason for my asking is that I have some fonts that don't have the full complement of characters in \textsuperscript, so only some footnote labels in the text appear as they should.

You can set the font of the footnote reference in text with the footnotereference element.

The element which fonts you can change with \setkomafont and \addkomafont are described in

## Code

\documentclass{scrartcl}
\setkomafont{footnotereference}{\ttfamily}
\begin{document}
Hello World!\footnote{Hello World!}
\end{document}

Thanks. This example works, and I'm not sure why I didn't see it in the manual. Unfortunately, I can't get it to work in another, larger document. Will try and figure out that problem next. –  Victor Mar 14 '13 at 2:43
@Victor Try to construct minimal working example (MWE) similar to that I have used in my answer and feel free to ask a Follow-up questions. –  Qrrbrbirlbel Mar 14 '13 at 2:45
