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.

  • Edited. Minimized what I can and now you can compile the code and see the issue.

  • 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.

  • So it is, apparently. Thanks for isolating the problem!

  • If you load footmisc after biblatex-chicago you get your superscript footnotes back though.

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).

  • @Nashh, please see update.
