I like dblfnote and have been working with it for a good while. Now my footnotes are just getting too long and the typesetting results accordingly undesirable, they would be way better if footnotes could be split across pages.

eledmac shows this desired behaviour. The following command almost gets it right:

\usepackage{eledmac}
\foottwocolX{A}
\let\footnote\footnoteA

But I didn't manage to have the colums typeset justified. For some reason my

\renewcommand*{\twocolfootfmt}[3]{...\justified...}

isn't recognized. Does anyone know how this works?

could you open a ticket on the github ? I think this could be an option on eledmac. –  Maïeul Jan 15 '13 at 18:44

It works if you remove \raggedright from the definition of \twocolfootfmtX. In my example I use the etoolbox package to do so.

[Note: For justified two-column typesetting, loading the microtype package is strongly recommended.

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{eledmac}

\usepackage{etoolbox}
\patchcmd{\twocolfootfmtX}{\raggedright}{}{}{}

\foottwocolX{A}
\let\footnote\footnoteA

\usepackage{microtype}

\usepackage{lipsum}

\begin{document}

\lipsum*[1]\footnote{\lipsum*[2-8]}

\end{document}
