The ctable package enables nice typesetting of footnotes in tables. However, I have very long and wide tables which I set with the sideways option and split them up so that each subset of rows fits in one page. Thus, I use the continued option for a proper numbering of the tables. However, the footnotes are displayed on every page on which a subset of the rows is put. Could I instead do either of the following two in some automatic way:

  • Display all of the footnotes only on the last page of the table. If I just include the \tnote commands in the last continued table, LaTeX complains in the earlier pages / \ctable environments wherever a \tmark is set without a corresponding \tnote.
  • Display only those footnotes which are referenced on that particular page. This is possible by manually deleting the unused \tnote commands from that respective \ctable environment. But I was wondering if there is some undocumented (automatic) switch for this behaviour, without any manual editing.

Or would anybody recommend another LaTeX package which enables such a scenario with simple options?

Hope, this minimal working example helps to understand my question:

\documentclass{scrartcl}
\usepackage{ctable}

\begin{document}

\ctable[
  caption = {Just another caption},
  sideways,
  notespar
 ]{rr}{
  \tnote[a]{Footnote 1}
  \tnote[b]{Footnote 2}
  \tnote[c]{Footnote 3}
 }{
                       \FL
  Start & End\tmark[a] \ML
  15    & 5\tmark[b]   \LL
}
\ctable[
  caption = {Just another caption},
  continued = {\textbf{(continued)}},
  sideways,
  notespar
 ]{rr}{
  \tnote[a]{Footnote 1}
  \tnote[b]{Footnote 2}
  \tnote[c]{Footnote 3}
 }{
                       \FL
  Start & End\tmark[a] \ML
  15    & 5\tmark[c]   \LL
 }

 \end{document}
