I want the footnote numbering to be superscripted (both in body and on the bottom of the page). What I get is superscript in body, and normal format on bottom of page. I understand what I'm asking for is supposed to be the default setting, so since I'm pretty new to Latex I thought maybe I can provide my document settings, and someone could help me figure out what settings are the one to change this. Hope it's not too long.

    Welcome to TeX.SE! Please make your code snippet compilable and minimalize it. – Mensch Nov 5 '17 at 16:06
  • Edited. Minimized what I can and now you can compile the code and see the issue. – Nashh Nov 5 '17 at 16:13
  • I could isolate the behavior to the use of biblatex-chichago. I'd guess it is in line with the Chicago Style to have the footnote numbers like this. – gusbrs Nov 5 '17 at 16:16
  • So it is, apparently. Thanks for isolating the problem! – Nashh Nov 5 '17 at 16:19
  • If you load footmisc after biblatex-chicago you get your superscript footnotes back though. – gusbrs Nov 5 '17 at 16:27

The footnote mark is redefined by biblatex-chicago (see Biblatex in author-date changes the way footnotes appear in the footer).

However, once you are already using footmisc, you can load it after biblatex-chicago and get it to override biblatex-chicago's definitions in this respect.

Update: biblatex-chicago includes an option for this behavior: footmarkoff, which disables alterations of the footnotes by biblatex-chicago. Irrespective of the use of footmisc then, perhaps it is best to use it, for it is a more general treatment for the issue. In fact, this will work, independent of the order in which biblatex-chicago and footmisc are called. (I've updated the code above to include the option).
