I am typesetting a document using the memoir package and reledmac package. I am trying to get the footnotes in a paragraph block, but typeset in two columns (the footnotes, not the main text). The paragraph block, I got using Xarrangement[A]{paragraph} and the two columns with Xarrangement[A]{twocol}. But it seems is not possible to get both parameters at the same time. Am I wrong?

\documentclass{memoir}
\usepackage{reledmac}
\Xarrangement[A]{paragraph}
%\Xarrangement[A]{twocol}

\begin{document}
\beginnumbering
\pstart
I am happy : I saw my friend \edtext{Smith}{\Afootnote{Jones C, D.}}
on Tuesday.
I am happy : I saw my friend \edtext{Smith}{\Afootnote{Jones C, D.}}

\pend
\endnumbering

\end{document}

I would like to have the effect of the two macros at the same time

Yes, it is impossible. Please open an issue on github (but I won't have time before many, many year to implement such feature).

  • I may lopk to the code. Do you think it will be enoigh to combine some lines fron the paragraph option and the twocolun option?

  • Not so easy. But the idea is here. You have to use \parafootfmt, to use twocolfootsetup and to make a mixt between twocolfootgroup and parafootgroup.

  • In any case, I will encourage you to read the paragraphe XII.5 and XII.6 of the handbook. You may also have a good knew of TeX \insert mechanism.

  • If you want to do that, I will ask you to make a fork of reledmac github repository, and then a pull request. The new arrangment should be called Xarrangement[A]{twocolpara} or something like that. I prefer you propose I pull request instead of making you own version of reledmac/reledpar.

  • The reason is that as reledmac/reledpar is very sensitive, and in the past, there will have many "hack" of ledmac, which there incompatible betwen them. To get an uniform distribution is better for all user.
