Footnote runs onto second page

In my KOMA-Script document …


… I currently use the following header options related to footnotes:

% footnotes
\counterwithout{footnote}{chapter} % don't start count on chapters

My geometry is as follows:

\usepackage[top=3cm, bottom=3cm, left=2cm, right=2cm]{geometry}

On several pages, I get this undesirable output, where a footnote is split across two pages, even though there would be enough space to fit it on the first one:

Even though it's perfectly capable of allowing for more space:

So, how can I prevent it from breaking footnotes at any time?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

  • There is actually not enough space to fit the footnote on one page. It's just a bad placement of the existing footnote marker - at the end of a page - coupled with a lengthy (for that location) footnote. One suggestion would be to modify the text to push the footnote over to the following page entirely (both the marker and the footnote text). – Werner Apr 20 '12 at 19:57

  • @Werner Yeah, I inevitably have to include some paragraphs here and there to prevent fragments on a few pages, but since it happens a few times in this (lengthy) document, I'd rather get rid of it all ;) – slhck Apr 20 '12 at 20:02
