# Different formatting of footnote mark in text and in footnote

I want that my footnotes have numbers like this:

• in the text : like this : (7) instead of just 7.
• in the bottom of the page (where the note text is) : like this : 7. This is my note... blah...

If I use :

 \renewcommand{\thefootnote}{(\arabic{footnote})}


then there is parantheses (...) in the text, but also in the bottom : (7). This is my note... blah..., and I don't want this.

Any idea?

I would use the footmisc package with the footref macro, but there's got to be a way of redefining it, which is what you're asking for. In a pinch, though... – Sean Allred Apr 30 '13 at 8:30

It's quite easy with scrextend

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{scrextend}
\deffootnote{1.5em}{1em}{\thefootnotemark.\ }
\deffootnotemark{\textsuperscript{(\thefootnotemark)}}

\usepackage{lipsum}

\setlength{\textheight}{10cm} % just for the example

\begin{document}
A footnote.\footnote{\lipsum[1]\lipsum*[2]}
\end{document}

Side note: The explanation can be found in KOMA-Script documentation, since scrextend is made to provide a lot of KOMA-Script specific stuff to users of other document classes. – Speravir Apr 30 '13 at 20:03

You want \thefootnote not to have the brackets

\renewcommand{\thefootnote}{\arabic{footnote})


then define

\makeatletter

\def\@footnotemark{%
\leavevmode
\ifhmode\edef\@x@sf{\the\spacefactor}\nobreak\fi
\hbox{\@textsuperscript{\normalfont(\@thefnmark)}}%
\ifhmode\spacefactor\@x@sf\fi
\relax}

\makeatother


To put the brackets back in the mark.

Does the following produce the desired result?

\documentclass[a4paper]{article}

\usepackage{lipsum}

\makeatletter
\long\def\@makefnmark{%
\hbox {\@textsuperscript {\normalfont (\@thefnmark) }}
}
\long\def\@makefntext#1{%
\parindent 1em\noindent \hb@xt@ 1.8em%
{\hss \hbox {\normalfont \@thefnmark.} }#1
}
\makeatother

\begin{document}
\lipsum[1-5]
My footnote\footnote{\lipsum[6]}
\end{document}

+1 for this answer for illustrating what I was missing while trying to answer. – kan Apr 30 '13 at 9:26
