Hello, using \footnote{insert footnote}looks weird with my footer defined as follows. Is there a method to put the footnote below the footer line? Or any other presentation that looks good

\fancyfoot[R]{ \thepage\ }

I also landed on footnote-in-footer‌​, and it seems like what I exactly want, but somehow doesn't work for me.[tex.stackexchange.com/questions/23486/footnote-in-footer‌​]

    I've never seen footnotes below the footer line. – egreg Sep 10 '17 at 19:13
  • @egreg wrong question then, i am sorry. however, is there a way to make it look better? – Kusha Verma Sep 10 '17 at 19:16
  • Yes: remove the footer line. Or put footnotes in the outer margin, if it's wide enough, and you don't have too many footnotes per page. – Bernard Sep 10 '17 at 19:21
  • a similar question is How to put footnote in footer; this hasn't been answered, but there is a suggestion in the last comment that might be helpful. (not tested or acknowledged.) – barbara beeton Sep 11 '17 at 1:30

Two suggestions (not mutually exclusive):

  • Don't use a footer line.

  • Load the footmisc package with the option bottom. This will ensure that the footnote(s) will always be placed at the very bottom of the page.

  • Noted! I also landed on this, and it seems like what I exactly want, but somehow doesn't work for me.[tex.stackexchange.com/questions/23486/footnote-in-footer] – Kusha Verma Sep 10 '17 at 19:29
  • @KushaVerma - The "solution" in the link you provide "works" if, and only if, there's only one footnote per page that doesn't occupy more than two lines. Not a very general solution, in my view... – Mico Sep 10 '17 at 19:47
