I followed the solution of Undesired Placement of Footnotes in Blocks to do citations in my Beamer so that they are indeed footnotes and not foot-of-the-block notes. It works wonders however, when I do \sfcite{some_ref} inside a tabularx, it displays it as 0[1] Author's name, etc instead of simply [1] Author's name, etc. Any clue where this would come from?

    Can you please provide us with a minimal working example, i.e. a small document that starts with \documentclass, ends with \end{document} and illustrates the issue?

    Thanks. Unfortunately you seem to have inserted your code as a picture, so every [ became a \[ and every ] a \]. Could you please fix that?

    It's fixed, that was a clumsy blunder, sorry.

    Why do you use tabularx? It doesn't make sense in your example. Commented Dec 12, 2018 at 20:20

    That is very true, because it is a MWE. I use the tabularx to hold images and an itemize. I could not get the itemize to work in a table else than using tabularx.

Using smacarter's answer to Unnumbered footnote in Beamer we can get unnumbered footnotes in beamer by redefining the beamer template.

\documentclass[mathserif,english]{beamer}
\usepackage[english]{babel}

   \addnbspace%
   \usedriver
     {\DeclareNameAlias{sortname}{default}}
     {\thefield{entrytype}}}
  {\multicitedelim}
  {\usebibmacro{postnote}}

\makeatletter
\let\cbx@citehook=\empty
\newtoggle{cbx@blockcite}

\DeclareCiteCommand{\sfcite}[\cbx@superscript]%
  {\usebibmacro{cite:init}%

          {\usebibmacro{sfcite}}
          {}}}
     {\usebibmacro{sfcite}}%
   \usebibmacro{cite:comp}}
  {}
  {\usebibmacro{cite:dump}}

\newbibmacro*{sfcite}{%

  \csnumgdef{cbx@frame@\thefield{entrykey}}{\value{framenumber}}%
  \xappto\cbx@citehook{%

\newrobustcmd*{\cbx@superscript}[1]{%
  \mkbibsuperscript{\mkbibbrackets{#1}}%
  \iftoggle{cbx@blockcite}
    {}
    {\cbx@citehook%
     \global\let\cbx@citehook=\empty}}
\makeatother

\setbeamertemplate{footnote}{%

  \insertfootnotetext\par}

\addbibresource{biblatex-examples.bib}

  • +1 Nice answer! I knew adding the biblatex tag to the question would result in an answer by you :) Commented Dec 13, 2018 at 16:34
  • @samcarter Well, you did all the work ;-) It took way too long because I have never really understood how footnotes work and throwing beamer into the equation definitely did not make things easier for me.

  • Na, the really difficult parts were to combine that with biblatex :) (understanding footnotes is probably irrelevant for beamer, as beamer is reinventing them anyway :) Commented Dec 13, 2018 at 16:50
