# Footnote within a Figure environment below caption

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
