# {beamer} how to delay footnote to apear along with item?

In my beamer presentation I want to use footnotes.

Currently the footnotes appear imediately at the frame start although the item having the footnote is not yet visible.

\documentclass{beamer}
\usetheme{default}
\usepackage{inputenc}
\begin{document}
\begin{frame}{Test Footnote}
\begin{itemize}
\item<+-> statement 1
\item<+-> statement 2
\item<+-> statement 3\footnote{this should appear along with statement3}
\item<+-> statement 4
\end{itemize}
\end{frame}
\end{document}


How can I have the footnote apearing at the same time as the item it belongs to?

You should assign overlay specifications to footnotes too

\documentclass{beamer}
\usetheme{default}
\usepackage{inputenc}
\begin{document}
\begin{frame}{Test Footnote}
\begin{itemize}
\item<+-> statement 1
\item<+-> statement 2
\item<+-> statement 3\footnote<3->{this should appear along with statement3}
\item<+-> statement 4
\end{itemize}
\end{frame}
\end{document}

• Sometimes the solution is closer then you think... ;o) Thanks! Sep 6 '21 at 9:48
• with <.-> instead of <+-> the footnote really appears together with the item Sep 6 '21 at 9:55
• @TimothyTruckle you're right! I suppose you mean <.-> instead of <3->! Sep 6 '21 at 10:03
• yes, <.-> prevents us from counting the items and changing the number when the footnoted item moves up or down... Sep 6 '21 at 12:04
