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! Commented Sep 6, 2021 at 9:48
  • with <.-> instead of <+-> the footnote really appears together with the item Commented Sep 6, 2021 at 9:55

    @TimothyTruckle you're right! I suppose you mean <.-> instead of <3->! Commented Sep 6, 2021 at 10:03
  • yes, <.-> prevents us from counting the items and changing the number when the footnoted item moves up or down... Commented Sep 6, 2021 at 12:04
