This question already has an answer here:

I would like to know if there's an "automated" (non manual) way to allow footnotes to be displayed on a different (say, adjacent) page from the one where the marker appears.

I ask this because I am writing a thesis with a lot of footnotes and some of them are very long and related to words close on the main text so that, being unable to put both footnotes on the correct pages, the compiler just send the main text (where the footnotes appear on close words) to another page, leaving a lot of blank space on the previous page; I would just prefer if the main text and the footnote marker could be kept on the "first" page and the relative footnote text be displayed at the bottom of the next page.

I'm using report document class

\documentclass[a4paper,12pt,oneside]{report}

and the only package footnotes-related I added is footmisc

\usepackage[bottom]{footmisc}

Also, the following commands are included in the preamble (I don't know if this is relevant)

%Set space between footnotes and main text

\setlength{\skip\footins}{0.7cm}

%Set space between footnotes

\setlength{\footnotesep}{0.4cm}

Thanks in advance for your help!

  • Welcome to TeX - LaTeX! This depends on some details of your set-up. Please post code showing your document class and the footnote relevant packages that you are using. – Andrew Swann Mar 7 '17 at 12:25
  • Thank you for the reply, @AndrewSwann! I'm using report document class: \documentclass[a4paper,12pt,oneside]{report} and the only package footnotes-related I added is this: \usepackage[bottom]{footmisc} – lucia de finetti Mar 7 '17 at 12:28

    Lucia, thank you. It is best to edit your question to include this extra information. Even better is if you can make a minimal working example (MWE) showing the problem. – Andrew Swann Mar 7 '17 at 12:30
  • See tex.stackexchange.com/a/238415/2388 (depending on your footmisc use, you will need a slightly different definition) – Ulrike Fischer Mar 7 '17 at 12:37
  • @UlrikeFischer Thank you very much! It looks like that's the exact same issue! – lucia de finetti Mar 7 '17 at 12:39
