# Footnote in reledmac environment

After the last software update by means of TeX Live Utility, about a week ago, I had this strange problem that I cannot solve because I don't remember the updated packages so I don't know where exactely go to search. The preamble of the MWE is the one that has always worked for both my current job as well for the previous ones. The problem is related to footnotes in the reledmac environment and to highlight it I have set three types of notes: 1. normal footnote, which never causes the error. 2. familiar footnote and critical footnote, both causing it.

The problem manifests itself with a typesetting phase that never ends, a sort of loop.

Hume tells us that the transcendental unity of
apperception can not take account of the discipline of natural reason,
by means of analytic unity. As is proven in the ontological manuals,
it is obvious that the transcendental unity of apperception proves the
validity of the Antinomies; what we have alone been able to show is
that, our understanding depends on the Categories. It remains a
mystery why the Ideal stands in need of reason.

Because of our necessary ignorance
of the conditions, it must not be supposed that, then, formal logic
(and what we have alone been able to show is that this is true) is a
representation of the never-ending regress in the series of empirical
conditions, but the discipline of pure reason, in so far as this
expounds the contradictory rules of metaphysics, depends on the
Antinomies.

• The problem is caused by the new version of bidi. i am looking on. – Maïeul Oct 5 '18 at 15:23
• I have openend and issue, as it is bidi responsability. – Maïeul Oct 5 '18 at 15:35
• same problem with \sidefootnote but not with \ledinnernote and \marginpar – Paolo Mascetti Oct 8 '18 at 6:47
• that is logical. I will try to solve an issue wenesday. In this delay, you can rolling back to older version of bidi using tlmgr. – Maïeul Oct 8 '18 at 12:48
• It seems that I have to install the previous version of bidi? – Paolo Mascetti Oct 11 '18 at 14:37
