I would like every line of a footnote to have the same indentation:

enter image description here

So "mi et neque [...]" should have the same indentation as "Lorem" (I'd like to achieve this by shifting "mi" to the left). Any way to achieve this?

MWE:

\documentclass{scrbook}
\usepackage{blindtext}

\begin{document}
    
    Test\footnote{\blindtext}
    
\end{document}

Use KOMA-Script command \deffootnote to format the footnote:

\documentclass{scrbook}
\usepackage{blindtext}
\deffootnote{1em}{1em}{\textsuperscript{\thefootnotemark}}
\begin{document}
Test\footnote{\blindtext}
\end{document}

enter image description here


Explanation:

The syntax of \deffootnote is

\deffootnote[mark width ]{indent }{parindent }{definition}

The default settings are

\deffootnote[1em]{1.5em}{1em}{\textsuperscript{\thefootnotemark}}

If the indentiation of the second etc. lines should be the same as the mark width in the first line you can use

\deffootnote[1em]{1em}{1em}{\textsuperscript{\thefootnotemark}}

or shorter

\deffootnote{1em}{1em}{\textsuperscript{\thefootnotemark}}
