# How can I set the space between footnotes and page number equal to the space I have between text and page number?

The page numbers are at the bottom center of my document. From time to time, I add footnotes but realised that the space between the footnotes and the page number is not the same for the case I do not use footnotes (normal text). Does anyone know, how I can make them the same?

• Can you show us the issue with a small compilable example? – Johannes_B Jan 6 '16 at 9:18
• Thank you for the comment. I was just about to create a document to show my problem. However, the problem does not show up anymore. I guess, I have to check the preamble myself before uploading it. – Patrick Balada Jan 6 '16 at 9:40
• Since footnotes are implemented as floats and floats are supposed to fit inside the text area, this shouldn't happen. At least, not without adding negative \vspace to the note. – John Kormylo Jan 6 '16 at 16:36
