I want my footnotes superscripted in the text and numbered continuously in the text of my book from 1 to n, without restarting at 1 with each chapter. In the MWE below, if I comment out the \chngcntr and \counterwithout lines, the footnotes in the text are superscripted, but renumbered from 1 with each new chapter. If I keep the two lines active, then the footnotes are not superscripted in the text, but they are continuous (from 1-4). This is true for LaTeX distributions texlive 2014, texlive 2017, and TeX/texbin.




\chapter{Paragraph 1}

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua.\footnote{This is foornote 1.} get egestas purus viverra accumsan in nisl nisi. \footnote{This is foornote 2.}

\chapter{Paragraph 2}

Commodo nulla facilisi nullam vehicula ipsum a arcu cursus.\footnote{This is foornote 3.} Eget egestas purus viverra accumsan in nisl nisi.\footnote{This is foornote 4.}

  • Welcome to TeX SX! Where can we have the cambridge6A class file? – Bernard May 6 at 20:27
  • How do I upload the file? Should I just cut and paste as a comment? – Prof T May 7 at 4:21
  • Download cls file here: dropbox.com/s/mpi9jt71ym1tnpt/cambridge6A.cls?dl=0 – Prof T May 7 at 4:23
  • I took at look at the cls file and I saw the following (see below). I wonder if this is the problem. % reset on chapters \@addtoreset{footnote}{chapter} \long\def\@makefntext#1{\raggedright\@setpar{\@@par\@tempdima \hsize \advance\@tempdima-\@footindent \parshape \@ne \@footindent \@tempdima}\par \noindent \hbox to \z@{\hss\@thefnmark\enskip}#1} – Prof T May 7 at 4:26
  • Solved! I commented out the \@addtoreset{footnote}{chapter} and now I have continuously numbered, super-scripted, text footnotes throughout. Thanks for leading me to the cls file. – Prof T May 7 at 4:44
