# How to have multiple citations entries using footcite?

I'm using Biblatex to put my references in footnotes. When I previously used \cite{} to insert references, I could just separate the references with a comma to put in multiple references: \cite{ref1, ref2} would result in blah blah blah [1,2]; and \cite{c1,c2,c3} would result in [1-3]

I tried this with \autocite, but it doesn't seem to work. Is there an easy way to get this to work?

Here is an example:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[style=verbose,backend=bibtex, autocite=footnote]{biblatex}

\begin{filecontents*}{bibliography.bib}
@article{c1,
author = {Neil, Daniel and Liu, Shih-Chii},
journal = {IEEE Transactions on VLSI Systems},
title = {{Minitaur, an Event-Driven FPGA-Based Spiking Network Accelerator}},
year = {2014}
}

@book{c2,
title={Event-Based Neuromorphic Systems},
author={Liu, Shih-Chii and others},
year={2015},
publisher={John Wiley \& Sons}
}
@inproceedings{c3,
title = {Personalized Speech Recognition On Mobile Devices},
author  = {Ian McGraw and others},
year  = 2016,
booktitle = {ICASSP}
}
\end{filecontents*}

\bibliography{bibliography.bib}

\begin{document}
I would like the footnote citations~\autocites{c1,c2,c3} to look $like^{1-3}$, but I got 1.
\end{document}

• Mhhh, you are just getting citations in a footnote here, you are not using a numeric style. The 1 is the footnote number not the label of any of your citations. – moewe Nov 5 '16 at 13:43
• Anyway to work around this? e.g. footcite? – user48564 Nov 5 '16 at 21:37
• Not really, \autocite is just \footcite here. Why exactly do you want multiple footnote numbers here? Do you have a numeric bibliography? Note that you simply have a footnote with the bibliographic info here. – moewe Nov 5 '16 at 21:48
• I would like to have a numeric bibliography where the citation numbers are displayed like footnote numbers in the main texts. Thanks for the help. – user48564 Nov 7 '16 at 11:49
• But how would you then distinguish real footnotes from citations? Would you still want to see the citation in the footnotes like in your example? – moewe Nov 7 '16 at 20:21
