How to get a footnote into a caption of a figure? I have look at examples on the forum and I tried two:

\begin{figure}  
\centering
\label{position}
\includegraphics[width=\textwidth]{../img/f.png}
\caption[Caption for LOF]{Real caption\footnotemark{45454}}
\footnotetext{ffff}
\end{figure}

Here I do not know where to write a text of the caption, and it is not printed at the bottom of the page.

\begin{figure}
  \begin{minipage}{\textwidth}
    \includegraphics[width=\textwidth]{../img/fig.png}
    \caption[Caption for LOF]%
      {Real caption\footnote{blah}}
  \end{minipage}
\end{figure}

Here, there is a footnote at the bottom of the page but with a footmark a instead of number. I tried to set it by

\renewcommand*{\thefootnote}{\arabic{footnote}}

but it does not help.

    Use \footnotemark inside caption and \footnotetext in text... refer tex.stackexchange.com/questions/141600/…

    \footnotetext should be placed outside of the figure environment, on the same page as the figure and before the next \footnote. See also: Using \footnote in a figure's \caption Apart from that, please make sure the \label command is placed after the \caption, otherwise cross references don't return th eexpected numbers.

    To conclude: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{graphicx} \begin{document} \begin{figure} \centering \includegraphics[width=\textwidth]{example-image} \caption[Caption for LOF]{Real caption\footnotemark{}} \label{position} \end{figure} \footnotetext{ffff} \end{document} should result in the expected output.

    @leandriis And why on earth don't you post your answer and waste my and other folks time skipping through unanswered questions, which are answered, but in the comments section?

  • Thank you. Now, I have in capture three footnotemarks. They are denoted by 4, 5, 6 although they are the first in the document. The footnotetexts are denoted all by six. What to do with that, please?
