# Indenting footnotes in ConTeXt

How to modify

``````\footnote
``````

in ConTeXt, such that the complete footnote is indented?

By default footnotes are not indented. Can you add a complete minimal example that demonstrates your problem? –  Marco Oct 16 '12 at 7:44
I am not sure, what you are asking for. Yes, footnotes are not indented, but I want them to indent. I think I should modify \setupfootenotes. Of course I can add a minexample (any footnote), if needed. Edit: Ok, my question could be misunderstood: I know there is no indentation, no complete and no first line, but Im looking for that (complete) indentation. Thats the question. –  Mustafa Oct 16 '12 at 7:48
Sorry, I misread the question. I thought you asked how to get rid of the indentation. So you want the entire footnote to be shifted or only the first line? –  Marco Oct 16 '12 at 7:52
Footnotes respect the indenting parameter: `\setupnotation[footnote][indenting={small,yes}]`. –  phg Oct 16 '12 at 7:58
Yes, I want the entire footnote to indent. @phq: This does not work, no indentation of the footnote, where I have to place the \setupnotation? –  Mustafa Oct 16 '12 at 8:11

I'm not quite sure how you want your footnotes to look like and what to indent. You find further information on the Wiki - Footnotes.

Use the `\setupnotation [footnote]` command to adjust the layout, here are some examples.

``````%% left align the footnote number and shift the footnotes
\setupnotation
[footnote]
[alternative=left]

%% indents the entire footnote by 2em and the number by 1em
\setupnotation
[footnote]
[alternative=left,
width=2em,
numbercommand=\hskip1em]

%% left align the footnote number, which practically indents the
%% first line
\setupnotation
[footnote]
[alternative=left,
hang=1]

%% Indents the first line inclusive the footnote number
\setupnotation
[footnote]
[alternative=left,
numbercommand=\hskip1cm]

%% Indents all footnotes and right-aligns the number
\setupnotation
[footnote]
[alternative=left,
width=2em]
``````

Full example:

``````\setupnotation
[footnote]
[alternative=left,
hang=1,
numbercommand=\hskip1cm]

\starttext

Lorem \startfootnote
\input ward
\stopfootnote

Ipsum \startfootnote
\input ward
\stopfootnote

\stoptext
``````

That works, but I want to indent the entire footnote, not only it's first line. In LaTeX that is \deffootnote{2em}{2em}{\textsuperscript{\normalfont \thefootnotemark} } –  Mustafa Oct 16 '12 at 8:17
The footnote number as well? –  Marco Oct 16 '12 at 8:23
Yes, everything (f.e.) 2em to the right. –  Mustafa Oct 16 '12 at 8:25
Something like `\setupnotation[footnote][alternative=left,width=2em,numbercommand=\hskip1em]`? –  Marco Oct 16 '12 at 8:30
`numbercommand=\hskip1.6em\high` –  Marco Oct 16 '12 at 8:49
