TeX - LaTeX Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for users of TeX, LaTeX, ConTeXt, and related typesetting systems. It's 100% free, no registration required.

For documents with a lot of footnotes, particularly if some are short, it can be nice to have multiple on the same line, e.g.:

  1. this is the first footnote 2. this is the second footnote 3. this if the third footnote 4. finally, we begin to wrap around.

Rather than having it:

  1. First footnote
  2. Second footnote
  3. Etc.

Is there a way to achieve this in LaTeX?

(This is not a duplicate of this question because I'm asking about regular full page environment.)

The para option of the footmisc package (which was the starting point of the linked question) is suited for a "regular full page environment".

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage[para]{footmisc}

\textheight=100pt% just for the example

\begin{document}

Some text.\footnote{A footnote.}

Some text.\footnote{Another footnote.}

Some text.\footnote{And yet another footnote which (finally!) ends on a new line.}

\end{document}
