I was asked to do some adoptions to the footnote layout using eledmac. One request I could not implement so far is to combine the "footparagraph" option with a long footnote containing paragraphs itself (and/or line breaks).

eledmac offers the parapparatus option for "normal" critical footnotes. However, I am looking explicitly for paragraphed familiar footnotes.

\usepackage[parapparatus]{eledmac} % Option only for "normal" footnotes

   Test\footnoteA{A test footnote with a\par new paragraph in it.}

I read through the source code of eledmac and tried to modify some routines, e.g. \newcommand*->\newcommand, but I did not succeed.

Does anyone of you have an idea how to do this?

Thank you in advance.

  • there is now way to do it, because eledmac paragraphed footnote create hboxes, which can't contain parbreak. Indeed, that is a non sense. – Maïeul Sep 7 '14 at 20:23
  • Thank you Maïeul for your comment. As I said I was asked to present a solution, although I as well stated that combining those two is not a good idea. Anyway, I think I will implement something using different series. That won't be perfect, but good enough. – Martin Sep 8 '14 at 8:02
  • Have you resolved it? – TeXnician Jul 16 '17 at 9:36
