Sometimes, the footer goes up in some pages.

So here is the page where I have the problem : Image with moving footer

And here is the page that comes just after, and with a normal footer :

Image with normal footer

I am using the package fancyhdr in my document :


Can anyone tell me why I am having this problem please, and how can I fix it.

The footer in latex is the fixed page area usually used for the page number, it is not the area used for footnotes. The footmisc package has a bottom option to place footnotes at the bottom of the page.

  • I'm new to LaTeX, can you tell what I'm suppose to do to fix it ??

  • @Sidahmed fix is the wrong word really as the footnote placement was an intentional design decision rather than a bug to be fixed, but anyway just add \usepackage[bottom]{footmisc} to your document Commented Jun 6, 2016 at 12:28
  • Thanks a lot, and sorry for using the word fix, just didn't found what to say.
