I have inserted a footnote in a justified column. However, the space between the text and superscript is huge. How do I keep the superscript number next to the text? enter image description here

    Can you show the input code? There should be no space in front of \footnote – egreg Apr 14 '15 at 15:03
  • Nicest spacing in my eyes: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{fnpct} \begin{document} in Figure~7 is not uniform\footnote{footnote text}. Within- \end{document} – LaRiFaRi Apr 14 '15 at 15:15

The \footnote command doesn't remove spaces before it. So, in general, it should be immediately after the word that should bear the footnote mark, with no intervening spaces. So

of the means as reported in Figure~\ref{whatever} is not
uniform.\footnote{The text of the footnote.} Within

A space like in

uniform. \footnote{The text of the footnote.}

will produce what you see in the picture.
