Following up to How can I edit footnote style in memoir class when using biblatex-chicago?

I have been fixing my footnotes with a hack adjusting \@makefntext, but I would rather use memoir's interface.

But I can't figure out how to make the footnote number be indented the same width as the \parindent of the body text above.

I include both my attempt at a memoir solution and my hack below; you can try both or see the default by moving the \begin{comment} and \end{comment} lines.




        \setlength{\parindent}{\myparindent} #1}

If you set the \footmarkwidth to zero and add space before the footmark everything aligns quite nicely:

enter image description here

Here is the code:


\footmarkstyle{\hspace{\parindent}#1.\,}    % indent the footmark 
\setlength{\footmarkwidth} {0em}
\setlength{\footmarksep}   {0em}
\setlength{\footparindent} {\parindent}

    Beautiful and elegant! I'm not sure why this isn't spelled out in the memoir manual. Nov 17, 2014 at 14:03
