I have four small footnotes. I want the first two to appear in separate lines, and the last ones to appear together in the same line. When I try \usepackage[para]{footmisc}, they all appear in a single line.

MWE:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[para]{footmisc}
\begin{document}
Some text.\footnote{FN1.\\}
Some text.\footnote{FN2.\\}
Some text.\footnote{FN3.}
Some text.\footnote{FN4.}
\end{document}

This shows (note the spaces before 2 and 3):

1 FT1.
  2 FT2.
  3 FT3.   4 FT4.

What I need instead:

1 FT1.
2 FT2.
3 FT3.    4 FT4.

    Will you consider adding a full MWE? – xxx--- Jun 9 '14 at 18:28

Does that work?

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[para]{footmisc}
\begin{document}
Some text.\footnotemark[1]
Some text.\footnotemark[2]
Some text.\footnotemark[3]
Some text.\footnotemark[4]

\footnotetext[1]{FN1.\\}

\footnotetext[2]{FN2.\\}

\footnotetext[3]{FN3.} \footnotetext[4]{FN4.}
\end{document}

    OOPS. Sorry, I forgot what your real problem was! :-( Starting afresh... – xxx--- Jun 9 '14 at 20:38

    Notes 3 and 4 now appear on the same line, but that line and note 2 are indented, while note 1 is not. Adding the flushmargin or marginal options of footmisc doesn’t fix the problem, unfortunately. – Thérèse Jun 10 '14 at 0:53
