# Second footcite isn't displayed correct

If I use a same footcite twice, it isn't displayed in the correct form. Beside of that, I would like to count the footcites/notes not per page, but for the hole document. So, the cites of the second chapter has to be number 3 and 4. Below my MWE which shows the problem.

• What do you mean by “not in correct form”? – egreg Dec 6 '14 at 10:35
• @egreg Not the whole footcite is shown at the second cite. I would recommend to try the MWE, I don't know for sure how to explain it. – Scripter Dec 6 '14 at 10:52
• Well, that's what biblatex considers correct: once a book/paper has been cited, the full form is not necessary any more. – egreg Dec 6 '14 at 10:54

The command \footcite generates footnotes which are treated as other footnotes are.

And in the report class the numbering of all footnotes is reset when a new chapter starts.

So, if you really want the behavior you've described in your request you can add the following lines in your preamble:

\usepackage{chngcntr}
\counterwithout{footnote}{chapter}


so that the footnote counter is not reset at each chapter, but note that all footnotes will follow this rule.

In regards of the issue in the title, I assume you want to display always the complete citation in the footnote. This can be achieved by using \footfullcite instead of \footcite, or adding the line

\let\footcite\footfullcite


so, each time you use \footcite you are using \footfullcite.

Output:

• Thanks a lot. This is exactly what I asked for. Do you have another solution for the full cite that is referring with the title, footcitenumber and page to an earlier footcite (The Guardian, num. 1, blz. 1)? – Scripter Dec 6 '14 at 11:15
• @RemcoSwienink I'm sorry but I don't understand the request. Maybe it is better to ask a follow-up question... – karlkoeller Dec 6 '14 at 11:20
