bigfoot – Footnotes for critical editions

The pack­age aims to pro­vide a ‘one-stop’ so­lu­tion to re­quire­ments for foot­notes. It of­fers:

  • Mul­ti­ple foot­note ap­pa­ra­tus su­pe­rior to that of many­foot
  • Foot­notes can be for­mat­ted in sep­a­rate para­graphs, or be run into a sin­gle para­graph (this choice may be se­lected per foot­note se­ries);
  • Things you might have ex­pected (such as \verb-like ma­te­rial in foot­notes, and colour se­lec­tions over page breaks) now work.

Note that the ma­jor­ity of the big­foot pack­age's in­ter­face is iden­ti­cal to that of many­foot; users should seek in­for­ma­tion from that pack­age's doc­u­men­ta­tion.

The big­foot bun­dle also pro­vides the per­page and suf­fix pack­ages.
