# Biblatex (footcite) and microtype

Biblatex is configured so that all author names are written in small caps and microtype is set to to adjust the spacing between the small cap letters a la

\SetTracking{ encoding = *, shape = sc }{ 45 }


and this working pretty well for the document as well as the bibliography, alas it doesn't work for footcites. Is there a way to apply this spacing also for footcites?

What I tried, is

\SetTracking[ context = footcite]{ encoding = *, shape = sc }{ 45 }
\SetTracking[ context = footnote]{ encoding = *, shape = sc }{ 45 }


• Please post a Minimal Working Example i.e. a complete, small document demonstrating the issue. – cfr Jun 15 '14 at 3:19
