CTAN package update: footmisc

Date: June 16, 2008 2:37:32 PM CEST
i have installed a slightly revised version of my footmisc package on the archive. changes are: -- the long standing complaint about \@makecol "not matching" has been resolved -- users may change the value of \footnotelayout using \renewcommand (previously they had to use \def) i have taken this opportunity to make the package's licence information "correct" (as in its layout). having completed this (essentially bookkeeping) version, i hope to get around to a new version incorporating suggestions submitted by other users. unfortunately my timetable this year has got somewhat awry, for health reasons. the package's catalogue entry may be reviewed at http://www.tex.ac.uk/tex-archive/help/Catalogue/entries/footmisc.html or the package directory may be browsed at http://www.tex.ac.uk/tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/footmisc/ Robin Fairbairns For the CTAN team

footmisc – A range of footnote options

A collection of ways to change the typesetting of footnotes. The package provides means of changing the layout of the footnotes themselves (including setting them in ‘paragraphs’ — the para option), a way to number footnotes per page (the perpage option), to make footnotes disappear in a ‘moving’ argument (stable option) and to deal with multiple references to footnotes from the same place (multiple option). The package also has a range of techniques for labelling footnotes with symbols rather than numbers.

Some of the functions of the package are overlap with the functionality of other packages. The para option is also provided by the manyfoot and bigfoot packages, though those are both also portmanteau packages. (Don't be seduced by fnpara, whose implementation is improved by the present package.) The perpage option is also offered by footnpag and by the rather more general-purpose perpage
