I know how to use cite and regard to literature etc. but in that case I want to do something else:

I want something like that:

 Page 1:
 bla bla bla

 bla bla
 Grade: 4.6[1]
 bla bla

 [1]: According to Russian grading system with 1: "insufficient" and 5 "excellent"
 end of page;

Does anyone know how to do that?

    Is \footnote{} what you want?

  • I try to use it with the moderncv class and I want to use it inside a \cventry but it tells me: Use of \@xfootnote doesn't match its definition. \@ifnextchar ...eserved@d =#1\def \reserved@a {#2}

    If you want this to work with moderncv then you should say that in the question, ideally with a basic document which includes \documentclass{moderncv}. I think moderncv has some issues with footnotes inside \cventry which may be a separate question to fix.

  • @J.Doe Welcome to TeX.SX! You can help us to help you by providing the code for a small document that shows your problem. Just edit your question and add the code. Nov 1, 2016 at 16:39
  • Does this issue really related to biblatex and csquotes? The tags seem a bit out of place.

You can use the \footnote-command. As long, as you don't have your footnotes looking like the ones, you quoted ("[1|"), this should be fine to you



Some normal text, which is typeset by Mr. Drofnats, a happy small
computer.\footnote{See the \TeX-Book for more details about Mr. Drofnats}


Ending in the text and the footnote at the end of the page:

Footnotemark in text Footnote at the end of the page


You can use with the help of lastpage.sty like below

\pageref{FirstPage} ............. \pageref{LastPage}

    I don't think that solves the question. I think OP is asking for footnotes, right? Nov 8, 2016 at 10:52
