I'm wondering if there is a way to write a footnote inside a caption and to stick the footnote in the same page of caption.

In my code I'm using footnotemark and footnotetext, but the footnote occurs two pages before the page in which there is the figure with caption.


    \caption[Caption for LOF]{Confronto con altri biosensori elettrochimici\footnotemark .}

    \footnotetext{Per [29], [39], [40], [2], [5], [41], [42], [15] si veda\cite{sun2016multi}.}


EDIT: the figure is the following:

Thank you in advance.

  • Hello @IAtExFaN, before the figure there are text. Sep 24, 2018 at 9:33

  • @lAtExFaN you have to insert a figure. See the Herbert reply please: tex.stackexchange.com/questions/10181/… Sep 24, 2018 at 9:33
  • you should provide a complete mwe. I cannot reproduce your mentioned result: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{mwe} %or load ’graphicx’ and ’blindtext’ manually \begin{document} \Blindtext \begin{figure}[h] \centering \includegraphics[scale=0.3]{example-image-a} \caption[Foo]{Bar\footnotemark .} \end{figure} \footnotetext{Foo Bar} \Blindtext \end{document}

  • @lAtExFaN can you tell me how can I post more than 10 pages of code please? The only way to show the problem is to post the whole code. Sep 24, 2018 at 9:40

To solve the problem it is necessary to put the following code below the text which is in the same page of the figure (in this case below the sencente which finished with the word "luogo"):

\footnotetext{Per [29], [39], [40], [2], [5], [41], [42], [15] si veda\cite{sun2016multi}.}
