# Footnotes with no superscript but indent [duplicate]

I cannot find a way to have footnotes with no superscript number in the footnotes, but superscript in the text and with an indent. If I use a macro like

\makeatletter
\renewcommand\@makefntext[1]{%
\parindent 1em%
\@thefnmark.~#1$\qquad$}
\makeatother


or

\makeatletter
\renewcommand\@makefntext[1]
{%
\makebox[9,5pt][r]{\@thefnmark\space}#1}
\makeatother


I get the result that the numbers are not superscript, but there is no way to have the indent, even if I add something like that to the preamble:

\usepackage[hang]{footmisc}
\footnotemargin1.8em


If I use this last command and the following macro

\makeatletter
\renewcommand\@makefnmark{{{\normalfont\@thefnmark}}.\ }%
\makeatother


I get both the indent and the non-superscript number, but then the superscript is absent also in the main text.

(I am using the document class book, but could switch to memoir, if it would help.)

Welcome to TeX.sx! It is always best to add a complete, minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem, rather than code snippets. –  Werner Oct 24 '12 at 16:03

The question link in my comment above inludes a compilable example using KOMA-script. –  lockstep Oct 24 '12 at 18:30
