# Table footnotes not showing

I have a really large table (that i have splitted in three lines) with footnotes. When I typeset it (TeXworks), the table loads fine, while the footnotes are not showing. The labels are showing though.

I have also tried \clearpage but it is not working either. And also, I want to create space between first and second "row" of tables (first and second table), where the comment is.

To get the footnotes to print, you need to encase the contents of the table environment (not the table environment itself...) in a minipage of width \textwidth.

By default, the footnote "numbers" will be printed as italic lowercase alphabetic letters (a, b, ...). If you want arabic numerals instead, just issue the instruction

\renewcommand\thempfootnote{\arabic{mpfootnote}}


immediately ahead of \begin{minipage}{\textwidth}.

• This works, however, it throws me this error: ! LaTeX Error: Not in outer par mode. See the LaTeX manual or LaTeX Companion for explanation. Type H <return> for immediate help. ... l.228 \textbf {\caption{Št. kolonij v odvisnosti od datuma}} – Redstone Tehnik Mar 16 '17 at 21:56
• @RedstoneTehnik - Well, I do not get this error with the example shown above. My hunch is that you've placed the table environment inside the minipage environment, instead the other way around. Please re-read the code and instructions I gave. – Mico Mar 16 '17 at 21:59
• Thanks, that was the exact problem. Now it works perfect! – Redstone Tehnik Mar 16 '17 at 22:02
• I tried using the solution mentioned here. I still can't see the footnotes. I am using tabularx environment though. Something needs to be taken care of with that? – elprofessor Apr 7 at 19:41
• @elprofessor - I'm afraid you haven't given me nearly enough information to come up with a diagnosis of the situation, let alone determine a cure. May I ask you to post a new query? – Mico Apr 7 at 19:49
