I am trying to figure out how to get the reledmac package to work with either the multicol package or the twocolumn book class. In my MWE I have two sets of footnotes defined: one is in the paragraph format and the other is a two column format. I need both sets of footnotes to span with the width of the whole page.

\documentclass[12pt, twocolumn]{book}
\usepackage[papersize={6.5in,9.5in},margin=1in,bottom=1in, headheight=28pt, heightrounded, marginparwidth=1.75cm, marginparsep=3mm, columnsep=10pt]{geometry}

Here is a mockup of what I am looking to achieve: enter image description here

  • it seems it is a bug in reledmac. You could open an issue on reledmac issues manager. Unfortunatly, I have no time yet for reledmac debugging. – Maïeul Jan 2 at 14:38

    as you don't use critical footnote, you coukd use other padckage that manage multiple level of footnotes – Maïeul Jan 2 at 14:38
