When using \footnote{text} in TeXnicCenter LaTeX, the number is reset in every new page. e.g:

  • page one footnote 1,2,3
  • page two footnote 1
  • page three footnote 1,2,3
  • ...

I want that the number associated with the footnote increment automatically in every chapter.

In light of the answer below, and due to the fact that you would like a fast solution, I recommend that you include a minimal example showing the problem you are having (to create a new page you can issue a command \newpage). –  Yossi Farjoun Dec 8 '10 at 21:34

I removed the unnecessary stuff from the question. Could you please add more of the necessary stuff (as Yossi and lockstep suggested). –  Caramdir Dec 8 '10 at 22:29

By default, LaTeX does not reset the footnote number on every page (see example below). Could it be that your preamble includes \usepackage[perpage]{footmisc}?

\documentclass{report}

\usepackage{blindtext}

% \usepackage[perpage]{footmisc}

\begin{document}

\chapter{first}

\blindtext[2]\footnote{bla}

\blindtext[2]\footnote{blubb}

\blindtext[2]\footnote{foo}

\chapter{second}

\blindtext[2]\footnote{bar}

\end{document}

I just find a solution with help of chngcntr package.

\documentclass{report}

\usepackage{chngcntr}
\counterwithin*{footnote}{page}

\begin{document}
Make a footnote\footnote{1st}
\newpage
Make a footnote\footnote{2nd}
Make a footnote\footnote{3rd}
\newpage
Make a footnote\footnote{4th}
Make a footnote\footnote{5th}
\end{document}

Sorry, but this doesn't work in full generality, because of the asynchronous page breaking mechanism. –  egreg Jan 4 '13 at 13:13

Besides this being the opposite of what the OP wanted a better solution would be to use the perpage package and say \MakePerPage{footnote} –  cgnieder Jan 4 '13 at 17:46
