I am happy with the authblk package. However, when there are multiple affiliations (with the footnote style), I would like to be able to add a bit of vertical space between each of them. This does not seem to be possible without tweaking the .sty file?

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{authblk}

\title{Title}
\author[1,2]{Author One}
\author[2]{Author Two}

\affil[1]{Very long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long Name for Department One, Institution One, Address One}
\affil[2]{Very long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long Name for Department Two, Institution Two, Address Two}

\begin{document}

\maketitle
\end{document}

You can redefine the internal macro \AB@affilsepx to add some vertical space:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{authblk}
\usepackage{etoolbox}
\makeatletter
\renewcommand\AB@affilsepx{\protect\\\vspace{\baselineskip}\protect\Affilfont}
\makeatother
\title{Title}
\author[1,2]{Author One}
\author[1]{Author Two}

\affil[1]{Very long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long Name for Department One, Institution One, Address One}
\affil[2]{Very long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long Name for Department Two, Institution Two, Address Two}

\begin{document}
\maketitle
\end{document}

  • Too bad, I missed that \AB@affilsepx. I only decided to unsuccessfully modify \AB@affilsep... Thanks! – pluton Apr 16 '20 at 17:14
  • The code is not the most transparent. :) – Alan Munn Apr 16 '20 at 17:17
  • Clearly:) Even though I am not really able to judge :) – pluton Apr 16 '20 at 17:21
