I'm trying to center author information where some authors have asterisks after their names. The asterisks add width and thus shift the horizontal position of their lines. How can I center based on the names only, ignoring the asterisks?

% NOTE: The \ignoreForCenter command doesn't exist.
  \textbf{First author\,\ignoreForCenter{\footnote{...}}}\\
  \textbf{Second author}\\
  \textbf{Third author}

You can set the footnote using \rlap (or \makebox[0pt][l]):

enter image description here



  \textbf{First author\rlap{\,\footnotemark}}\footnotetext{This is a footnote.} \\
  \textbf{Second author} \\
  \textbf{Third author}
