# How can I let a footnote continue on the next page?

I have a rather long footnote which breaks a listing in two parts, unnecessarily. Since the listing is more important then the footnote I'd rather lake to have the footnote split.

• Can I customize (one or all) footnotes to have a maximal length before they are continued on the next page?
• Or can I manually split a footnote in two to get the effect?

There is a parameter \interfootnotelinepenalty, which is 100 in LaTeX. Setting it to zero (\interfootnotelinepenalty=0) or even to a negative value before the offending footnote helps to split it. Then you can set it back to 100 if you wish.

It is difficult to give a more detailed answer without an MWE.
