# How to prevent the citation in footnote appear not in order? [duplicate]

I use a quite complicated way to make my citation, as I need to use the same citation as a reference in different places in my text.

Now I got the correct way of showing the citation in footnote, but each citation has 2 numbers, and the number of the citation is not in order (the one with squared brackets). It comes out like

1[3], 2[1], 3[4], 4[2]


I want them show as (this problem has been solved with sorting=none)

[1],[2],[3],[4]


And how to remove the number 1 before [1]? Is that possible to set the referenced citation also as superscript inside the text? In order to keep reference citation work, I keep the script for footpartcite and partcite.

Thank you!

Each citation has two numbers.\footpartcite{unintentional}
And the order of citation is not correct. \ref{ftn:unintentional}

I dont know how to put unsrtnat style inside my preamble, because the system said it´s not existing.\footnote{\label{ftn:unintentional}\partcite{unintentional}}

And I have tried to define natbib separately \ref{ftn:unintentional}
But the system says I have already defined it with usepackage {biblatex}\footnote{\label{ftn:HP}\partcite{HP}}

The citation number inside text is not correct,\footpartcite{CrashStatistic} because only 4 citations have been used here \footpartcite{ASH}

Does anyone know how to solve them?\ref{ftn:HP}

• Is something missing in your MWE? I get this error: File ended while scanning use of \blx@defcitecmd@iv. – totera Jan 2 '17 at 18:13
• I didnt reproduce your error. Maybe you need to check your settings. You need to choose "pDFLatex+bib(la)+Pdflatex(x2)+show PDF" in the configuration. Otherwise it wont work @totera – Vivian Jan 2 '17 at 18:17
• I'm not entirely sure I understand what you want. Do you only want the citation labels in the footnotes? Does sorting=none help a bit? – moewe Jan 2 '17 at 22:31
• @moewe Thank you! it helps! The order of citation in footnote is now correct! – Vivian Jan 4 '17 at 16:14
