In the book class, footnote numbering restarts with each new chapter. Is there a way I can have all footnotes numbered sequentially regardless of which chapter they appear in?


\title{The Book}
\author{The Author}

\chapter{Chapter One}

Here is some text.\footnote{And here is a footnote.}

\chapter{Chapter Two}

Here is some more text.\footnote{And here is another footnote.}

The second footnote should carry the number "2," not the number "1."

  • Indeed it is! I searched using the word "cumulative;" the question using the word "continuous" didn't appear. – Michael Kane May 31 '18 at 8:52
