If it's possible, I would like to customise the position of critical and familiar footnotes in order to have the following layout in my apparatus :

  • One serie of familiar footnotes (\footnoteA)

  • The critical footnotes (\Afootnote, \Bfootnote ...)

  • The other series of familiar footnotes (\footnoteB, \footnoteC ...)

Is there a way to make that ?


  • I was anxious when people would ask for this. For now, it is not possible. Please open a github issue, it should be easy to implement.

The version 2.16.0 of reledmac, just send on CTAN, provides tools to customize the order.

The \fnpos command can have a syntax which defines customize order. For your need, add the following code in your preamble:


Note that with this option, you must define explicitly all the position of the footnote.
