It is possible to get footnotes typeset as paragraph thanks to package footmisc loaded with the para option, as discussed in this thread.

But this is set globally. I would like to typeset footnotes as paragraphs only for some pages in one document. How can I get this functionality?

The footmisc package rewrites the output routine to deal with the footnotes and it is not easy to change that on a per page basis. On the other hand, the memoir class has similar styles available and this can be changed mid document.

Page 1 (page 3 is similar):

Page 2:

Page 2

\documentclass{memoir}

\textheight=100pt% just for the example

\begin{document}
Some text.\footnote{A footnote.}

Some text.\footnote{Another footnote.}

Some text.\footnote{And yet another footnote which (finally!) ends on
a new line.}

\clearpage
\paragraphfootnotes

Some text.\footnote{A footnote.}

Some text.\footnote{Another footnote.}

Some text.\footnote{And yet another footnote which (finally!) ends on
a new line.}

\clearpage
\plainfootnotes

Some text.\footnote{A footnote.}

Some text.\footnote{Another footnote.}

Some text.\footnote{And yet another footnote which (finally!) ends on
a new line.}

\end{document}

  • It would be useful to be able to reproduce memoir's \paragraphfootnotes and \plainfootnotes commands behavior in other classes. May 3, 2019 at 20:36
