Since I want to take advantage as much as possible of the space in a poster I'm making I want to make the footnotes (that include citations) appear continuous (in one line). After searching I found this post that says that I can achieve that using the footmisc package.

The problem is that when I use it, my footnotes disappear. Consider the following example code. If you remove the \usepackage[norule,para]{footmisc}, the footnotes appear properly.

\documentclass{beamer}
\usepackage[norule,para]{footmisc}
\usepackage{biblatex}

\begin{document}

\begin{frame}[fragile]
  \begin{columns}
    \begin{column}{.49\textwidth}
      \begin{beamercolorbox}[center,wd=\textwidth]{postercolumn}
        \begin{minipage}[T]{.95\textwidth}
          \parbox[t]{\textwidth}{
            \begin{block}{Test}
              this is some test text\footnotemark
            \end{block}}
        \end{minipage}
      \end{beamercolorbox}
    \end{column}
    \footcitetext{osborne-rubinstein}
    %Second Column %
    \begin{column}{.49\textwidth}
      test\footnotemark
    \end{column}
    \footcitetext{test}
  \end{columns}
\end{frame}

\end{document}

Is there some problem with the footmisc package and the the beamer class or am I doing something wrong?

  • You can't use both packages together. beamer has its own \footnote definition and you are destroying it if you load footmisc. Commented Aug 29, 2012 at 14:28

    Any idea then on how to make footnotes appear in line in beamer? Or is it impossible? Commented Aug 29, 2012 at 14:31
  • I would probably simply fake the para look. E.g. \setcounter{footnote}{1} \footnotetext{osborne-rubinstein, \textsuperscript{2}test} Commented Aug 29, 2012 at 14:38
  • Using \cite inside \footnotetext instead of \footcitetext and what you said worked. Also using the answer from this post (tex.stackexchange.com/questions/21913/…) I managed to make the line disappear. Cheers mate. You should change your comment to an answer. Commented Aug 29, 2012 at 14:48

I would probably simply fake the para look. E.g.

\setcounter{footnote}{1} 
\footnotetext{osborne-rubinstein, \textsuperscript{2}test}
