Here is my current Tex file:



\noindent Some text\protect\footnote[1]{Footnote 1}\\
\noindent Some other text\protect\footnote[1]{Footnote 2}


This is the result: enter image description here

I would like the footnotes to be respectively * and **.

    If you use \footnote[1] twice, why do you expect them to produce different results? – Ingmar Dec 8 '20 at 14:15
  • I don't expect my code to produce different results. It was just to illustrate, where the footnotes should be. replacing the number results in other symbols. I tried different approaches but wasn't able to make the ** – User123456789 Dec 8 '20 at 14:28

    Right. Just saying \footnote[1] will normally produce an asterisk. If you want ** it's usually \footnote[7]. Probably best to use the wiley symbol set as shown in the answer below, in this case. – Ingmar Dec 8 '20 at 14:30

In the standard setup the double star comes at 7th place, so you could type your second footnote as \footnote[7]{...}. Better use the wiley numbering provided by footmisc

such that




Some text\footnote{Footnote 1}

Some other text\footnote{Footnote 2}

  • Thank you, it works like I would like it to. I wasn't aware og the existence of "\setfnsymbol{wiley}" – User123456789 Dec 8 '20 at 14:29
