I'm using biblatex-chicago to write an exam. We are to follow a version of Chicago-style citations with footnotes, and only the superscript number in-text. When I use \textcite[test], however, it compiles to

Smith1

Instead of what I would want, which is:

1

This a simplified version of my .tex:

\documentclass[a4paper,12pt]{article}

\usepackage{microtype}
\usepackage[backend=biber]{biblatex-chicago}
\addbibresource{exam.bib}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}

\begin{document}

Statement of fact \textcite{test}

\end{document}

And here is the .bib:

@book{test,
        author = "Smith, Jake",
        title = "The Book of Testification",
        year = "1997",
        publisher = "Books Publishing LLC",
        }

How would I go about changing this behavior?

    Welcome to TeX.SE! Can you please -- as usual here -- show us a small, complilable tex code building your bibliography and please add also the used bib entry to your question ... – Mensch Dec 10 '19 at 22:11

According to the manual \textcitedoes the following:

In the main text, they will provide an author’s name(s), followed immediately by a foot- or endnote which contains the full (or short) reference, following the usual rules.

If you need the only a footnote, you should use \footcite (or \autocite) instead.

\documentclass[a4paper,12pt]{article}

\usepackage{microtype}
\usepackage[backend=biber]{biblatex-chicago}
\addbibresource{exam.bib}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}

\begin{document}

Statement of fact \autocite{test}

\end{document}
