On reledpar’s manual – on \raggedX – it’s said that two-column footnotes are justified by default, but that’s not what I get. From another answer (Justify reledpar columns) I gather it might be solved using \tolerance, but I haven’t found anything more illuminating about that. A minimal working example follows.






   Lipsum\footnote{\lipsum[1]} \lipsum[1]
   Lipsum\footnote{\lipsum[2]} \lipsum[3]
   Lipsum\footnote{\lipsum[2-4]} \lipsum[2]
   Lipsum\footnote{\lipsum[2]} \lipsum[1]

    On reledmac handbook, it is sais \Xragged concerns paragraphed footnote, not two columns footnotes. You find the way, so nice.
