  • May be is useful for you \usepackage{fnpara}in the preamble, although this package put all footnotes in a run-on para­graphs.

The bigfoot package features (besides the improved standard macro \footnote) the macros \footnote+ which forces plain footnotes (even when the default style is para) and \footnote- which forces paragraph-style footnotes (even when the default is plain). Footnotes which include displayed equations, quotes or list environments must be in plain style; therefore, if your default style is para, you must use \footnote+ for the respective notes.

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{bigfoot}
\DeclareNewFootnote[para]{default}

\newcommand*{\sometext}{Hello, here is some text without a meaning. This
    text should show, how a printed text will look like at this place.
    If you read this text, you will get no information.}

\begin{document}

\null\vfill% just for the example

First paragraph.\footnote+{%
\sometext

\begin{equation}
a^2 + b^2 = c^2
\end{equation}
}

Second paragraph.\footnote{A short footnote.}

Third paragraph.\footnote{Another short footnote.}

Fourth paragraph.\footnote+{%
\sometext

\begin{quote}
\sometext
\end{quote}
}

\end{document}

  • I prefer this over the [para] option of footmisc because it keeps overflowing footnotes on their own lines, making them look somewhat clean. footmisc will just treat everything as a single blob of text and add everything to the previous line if it fits anyway
