I'm creating a report in which on the first page all the footnotes are same so I'm using \footnote for the first one and then replicating it with\footnotemark[]. However on the second page there are two separate footnotes, the first one that i'm marking using \footnotemark[] from the previous page and a second one which I have declared using \footnote{}. But on the second page it is only showing the second footnote and not the first one in the footer. Any comments?

\hrule width \textwidth height 1pt}
\graphicspath{ {images/} }
\geometry{a4paper, margin=0.8in}
  \kern -20pt
  \hrule width \textwidth height 1pt
  \kern 6pt


\subsection{Budget\footnotemark[1] \footnotetext[1]{First footnote.}}


You are going to have to duplicate the footnote in a manual way using a combination of \footnotemark and \footnotetext:

enter image description here

\usepackage[paper=a6paper]{geometry}% Just for this example
\usepackage[nopar]{lipsum}% Just for this example

\footnote{First footnote.}\lipsum[1]\footnotemark[1]


\footnotemark[1]\footnotetext[1]{First footnote.}\lipsum[2]\footnote{Second footnote.}

  • Ah! I was thinking that manual entry can be an option, just wanted to see if any other options was there. Thanks :) – pythonnewbie May 26 '15 at 20:33
  • I entered the "\footnotemark[1]\footnotetext[1]{First footnote.}\lipsum[2]\footnote{Second footnote.} " and my latex is crashing with the error TeX capacity exceeded, sorry [input stack size=5000]. \reserved@a ->\def \reserved@a *{\ttl@assign@i {\@tempskipb }}\reserved@a l.113 ...et\footnotemark[1]\footnotetext{sasdasd}} – pythonnewbie May 26 '15 at 20:48
  • @pythonnewbie: Perhaps clear all your auxiliary files (delete them) and compile/try again. If the problem persists, you need to provide us with a way to reproduce your problem (perhaps edit your question and include code that replicates it). – Werner May 26 '15 at 20:51
  • \subsection{Budget\footnotemark[1] \footnotetext[1]{First footnote.}} This is the command i'm using. Can enter the whole code if it helps – pythonnewbie May 26 '15 at 20:54
  • @pythonnewbie: Ahhh, footnotes in a sectional command. Not a good idea, since the contents is pushed to the ToC as well. Try \subsection[Budget]{Budget\footnotemark[1]\footnotetext[1]{First footnote.}}. – Werner May 26 '15 at 20:56
