I'm writing my thesis as book style and I formatted the chapter heading size with

\makeatletter % to set the layout of the chapters header
\def\@makechapterhead#1{%
  \vspace*{60\p@}%
  {\parindent \z@ \raggedright \normalfont
    \ifnum \c@secnumdepth >\m@ne
      \if@mainmatter
        %\huge\bfseries \@chapapp\space \thechapter
        \huge\bfseries \thechapter.\space%
        %\par\nobreak
        %\vskip 20\p@
      \fi
    \fi
    \interlinepenalty\@M
    \huge \bfseries #1\par\nobreak
    \vskip 40\p@
  }}
\makeatother

Now when I add a footnote to the chapter headings the footnote number is really big. How can I make it smaller?

  • A footnote iin a chapter title? Quite strange. I bet you are using the words in the title within the first few sentences of the chapter, place the footnote there.

Here as font size of chapter heading is \huge, the size of footnotemark tracking it, you can reduce size of footnotemark inside a group with {\large\protect\footnote{text}}

You can test it with this example

\documentclass{book}
\usepackage{lipsum}
\makeatletter % to set the layout of the chapters header
\def\@makechapterhead#1{%
  \vspace*{60\p@}%
  {\parindent \z@ \raggedright \normalfont
    \ifnum \c@secnumdepth >\m@ne
      \if@mainmatter
        %\huge\bfseries \@chapapp\space \thechapter
        \huge\bfseries \thechapter.\space%
        %\par\nobreak
        %\vskip 20\p@
      \fi
    \fi
    \interlinepenalty\@M
    \huge \bfseries #1\par\nobreak
    \vskip 40\p@
  }}
\makeatother

\begin{document}

\chapter{Chapter one{\Large\protect\footnote{footnote here}}}

\lipsum[1-3]

\end{document}

And the result

  • It should be \chapter[Chapter one]{Chapter one{\Large\protect\footnote{footnote here}}} or the footnote would appear also in the table of contents.
