I want my critical notes called on the left side and printed on the right side. This is an example:






[\section*{Latin section title}]

Versus 1&
Versus 2&
Versus 3&
Versus 4&
\edtextlater{Versus 5}{\Afootnote{Comment on line 5.}}&
Versus 6\&

[\section*{Translated section title}]

Prose translation.



I get this error: Cfootnote outside of the second argument of an edtext

With normal \edtext I have no problem.

Any help? Thanx!

  • I get no error in a current miktex or texlive. (But I don't know if I get the wanted output.) Oct 31, 2016 at 9:11
  • I get no error too, except a spurious space that will be corrected quickly. After three run, I also get the expected ouput. Which version of reledmac/reledpar do you use?

  • U use MiKTeX 2.9, and packages are from the version you uploaded here: (github.com/maieul/ledmac/issues/545). It seemed to have worked without error last night, but \edtextlater messed up the line numbers of other series of notes (I had 3 series, and only one with \edtextlater). This morning, when I wanted to post a question about line numbers, it started to issue an error.

  • hum. You should use the standard version of of reledmac/reledpar distributed by MikTeX, and not a development one get on github.

  • Yes, I'll try it later today, when I come home. I used the github version because of some problems with the standard version. I tried the example on another computer, and it worked fine. Maybe I just have to get my versions straight. Thank you.

I have no problem with this code on my TeXLive. You have used a not official version of reledmac/reledpar, which was in development. Please use normal official version on CTAN and in TeXLive / MikTeX.

However, there is a bug on the version 2.14.1 of reledpar, which insert a spurious space. Wait some days to get the neweset version 2.14.2.
