I have a problem with footnotes within the edtext of the reledmac package. The footnoteA in the edtext{ quidem} is fine as is.

\usepackage{scrlayer-scrpage} % vorher scrlayer-scrpage 


\title{Incipit ordo sive breviarium} \maketitle 
\pstart \myparagraph{IN ADVENTU DOMINI}
\edtext{(9r)}{\Afootnote{(1r) SVE; }}
Ad vesperas  AN \textit{Benedictus}.
Nam quod\edtext{ quidem\footnoteA{corr., a.c.: 'quidam'}}{\Afootnote{- SVE;}} 
in illo spatio.

However, the output shows another footnote in the second footnote apparatus with a different counting number. Either no number or the same as in the actual footnote would be ok for me.

Does anybody of you have any ideas?


That is clearly a (r)(e)ledmac bug, but it has been quickly fixed.

I have send the new version (2.14.1) on the CTAN 4th of July morning.

Just wait until it will be available using tlmgr.

If you need it quickly, please download https://github.com/maieul/ledmac/archive/master.zip, run pdflatex on the .ins file to get the new .sty file, and put these file along your project. That will suppress the calling of familiar footnote inside critical footnote.

  • you'r welcome. Note that you should do quod \edtext{quidem and not quod\edtext{ quidem – Maïeul Jul 7 '16 at 14:06
