1 Answer 1


in [] should be the number.



1   asterisk        *   2   dagger      †   3   double dagger       ‡
4   section symbol  §   5   paragraph   ¶   6   parallel lines      ‖
7   two asterisks   **  8   two daggers ††  9   two double daggers  ‡‡

as is pointed out in https://tex.stackexchange.com/a/829/234654.

So the command you need to use is \footnote[2]{text}.
