How do I refer to a footnote. For expmale if is constructed like this:

blablablabla\footnote{ble blev blev v\label{footnote_1}}

Then when you want to refer to it one uses this?

As mentioned in note \ref{footnote_1}
  • Yes and that works. It is simple and requires no additional packages. – user91822 Dec 20 '18 at 15:56

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{footmisc}
\begin{document}

argument of the footnote command that is being 
labelled\footnote{Note text\label{fnlabel}}
potato head\footref{fnlabel}

\end{document}
  • It is not working for me. It sent me to the first page. Any ideas? Thanks. – Herman Jaramillo Jan 26 '18 at 23:48
  • My error. I had several places (footnotes and none footnotes) with the same label. – Herman Jaramillo Jan 27 '18 at 12:21
  • Use \ref{...} instead of \footref{...} if you want the number to be printed inline rather than as superscript. Also, \pageref{...} works to refer to the page the footnote is printed on. – fiedl Sep 3 '18 at 20:43

It also works with the all-powerful cleveref (instead of footmisc):

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{cleveref}
\begin{document}
Here is some real nondescript text\footnote{What a qualifier\label{xxx}}

Then I can refer later to \cref{xxx} (\Cpageref{xxx})
\end{document}
