I have a figure consisting a minipage with an enumerated list of text. One of those enumerated text has a footnote as shown in the example below. The problem is that the footnote appears above the caption of the figure.

\begin{figure}
   \centering
   \begin{minipage}{\textwidth}
      \begin{enumerate}
          \item Test item\footnote{test footnote text.}
      \end{enumerate}
   \end{minipage}
   \caption{test caption}
\end{figure}

Is there any way to put the footnote below the caption?

  • Why is this used as figure environment at all? The footnote in minipage is emitted right after the end of minipage – user31729 Jul 12 '17 at 20:38
  • @ChristianHupfer It just seemed a slightly more clear way to explain something in my text. – Rakib Hasan Jul 12 '17 at 20:48

just put the\caption after the enumerate so the footnote is inserted at the end of the minipage below the caption.

  • While technically correct, the question remains: Why is that a figure environment?! – Skillmon Jul 12 '17 at 20:39
  • @Skillmon why not? – David Carlisle Jul 12 '17 at 20:40

  • @DavidCarlisle Thanks David. Your suggestion did the trick. – Rakib Hasan Jul 12 '17 at 20:51
