# Is there a way to add footnotes to footnotes? [duplicate]

Well, the title basically explaines my problem: Adding footnotes inside footnotes doesn't seem to work... Can you help me?

• What about with bigfoot? See, e.g., this answer. – jon Feb 25 '17 at 3:37

Looks weird to me ...

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[a6paper]{geometry}
\begin{document}

A footnote\footnote{gslkdfg djfgh ösdkjfgh öskdj\footnote{foo} g}
\footnotetext{foo}

foo\footnote{bar}

\end{document}


• So does this simply work for you?! – Anton Ballmaier Feb 24 '17 at 21:13
• what did you get with my example?? – user2478 Feb 24 '17 at 21:16
• And what exactly do you do with the \footnotetext command? – Anton Ballmaier Feb 24 '17 at 21:16
• \footnote in a \footnote writes only the \footnotemark but not the text. However, it can simply be seen if you comment it out! – user2478 Feb 24 '17 at 21:17
• With your example I get the same... But I didn't know that command ^^ – Anton Ballmaier Feb 24 '17 at 21:18
