I hit a situation where it appears like latex has a passion for putting footnotes together, which causes it even to move a footnote away from the page on which it is referenced.
[EDIT: As Ulrike Fischer pointed out in the comments, latex has no such mechanism built-in. The behavior thus must be a symptom of some other issue.]
To be precise, I have two pages as follows:
- Page 1
- Figure 1
- Footnote 1 is defined
- Page 2
- Figure 2
- Footnote 2 is defined
- Footnote 3 is defined
Now instead of putting Footnote 1 on Page 1, latex puts Footnote 1 on Page 2, together with Footnote 2 and 3. There would be enough space on Page 1 to fit Footnote 1. If I make the page bigger using
\enlargethispage, nothing happens for a while until it moves all three footnotes on Page 1.
I'm not providing a MWE because I think the issue is quite specialized and hard to reproduce.
Has anyone else experienced this behavior? What did you do against that? Is there a penalty or so I can set for moving footnotes to another page?
