I'm writing a thesis using Lyx, the Koma-script bookclass and jurabib. I'm trying to format the footnotes/citations so that the citations are not indented in The trival example below (edit to remove deadspace) shows a standard footnote 1 and a footnote containing a citation using bibtex.

Exampledifference

Can people give me any suggestions/tips and hints of how I could remove the dead space between the number and start of the bibtex reference?

A solution from here results in an indentation for both tips of footnote

\usepackage[hang]{footmisc}
\footnotemargin1.8em

Thanks for any help/suggestions

  • I don't know of citations and LyX, but, as always, a compilable example would be welcome. That way we can actually compile and reproduce your problem. By the way, KOMA-Script has \deffootnote but I don't think this is what you are looking for. – Manuel Jun 20 '14 at 16:33
  • Is there a common place (used by this forum) where I can upload a tex/bib file? – Andy Jul 3 '14 at 16:53
  • This is not a “forum”, you can just put your code in the question. Of course, you don't need to upload everything, but the necessary to make your problem appear. – Manuel Jul 3 '14 at 16:55

Package jurabib is from 2004, all of its features are supported by the modern package biblatex which can be used with LyX as well. andyScrbookFootnoteIndent

This output can be achieved with the following code:

\documentclass{scrbook}
\usepackage{blindtext}
\usepackage[style=authoryear]{biblatex}
\addbibresource{biblatex-examples.bib}
\begin{document}
\blindtext\footcite{aristotle:physics}

\blindtext\footfullcite{companion}\footnote{\blindtext}
\end{document}
