I’m trying to typeset a book using fontspec and an OpenType font (Garamond3LTPRo, supplied by my publisher), with Memoir. At first, I used LaTex because using the required font seemed optional (it was not). So I switched to XeLaTex and Fontspec, but I can’t seem now to modify in any way the footnotes (neither the footnotemark nor the indentation). The notes should be in a block paragrah, without indentation, and the footnotemark flush left, but not in the margin. Is it due to the font used ? I’ve reviewed all questions linked to footnotes but didn’t find anything that seem to work.



\footmarkstyle{#1\hfill} %notes en §, ms avec appel seul, indenté à gauche ds marge

ItalicFont={Garamond3LTPro-Italic}, BoldItalicFont={Garamond3LTPro-BoldItalic}]{Garamond3LTPro}

\newfontfamily\greekfont[Script=Greek]{Times New Roman}

This is a test to add a footnote\footnote{And this is footnote 1.}.
And to add another footnote\footnote{\lipsum[2]}.


  • Welcome to TeX.SX! The way the footnotes are typeset should have nothing to do with the font you use. Did the footnotes change when you started to use XeLaTeX? By the way: I don't get the output you show, but rather the output you seem to want to have. I don't possess the font, of course, but I doubt that this is the reason. Dec 3, 2021 at 11:22
  • Just to make sure: This is how the footnotes in your document look like if I compile the above code using EB Garamond: i.stack.imgur.com/OYth1.png Dec 3, 2021 at 11:50
  • Thanks. The footnotes changes when I started using fontspec and the GaramondPro police. I rechecked : when I compile the code above with Garmon3LTPRO, I don't obtain the same footnote style as you with EB Garamond, but what you can see in the image above (with the right footnotemarkers).

  • What happens if you use fontspec but another font? Dec 4, 2021 at 15:38
  • See \foottextfont on page 242 of the memoir manual. Dec 4, 2021 at 16:42

Someone suggested to me to use the footmisc package, and it does work, with additional customizing to change the footnotemarker in the footer (found in this post).

  • It is better to post the alteration what you did to meet the requirement, so that it will help someone in future
