Adding dots to indicate that the footnote is too big [...]

Postby latexforever » Fri Nov 27, 2009 11:34 am


Let's say you write a footnote's argument, i.e.
  1. \footnote{argument}
where the length of argument is too high, resulting in a footnote
which is, in the output, cut in some pieces. The footnote is thus
divided across pages, but I find it ugly to see these cut footnotes
not separated with an indicator, i.e. if you use
  1. \footnote{argument}
, where length(argument)>> compared to the
available space on the current page that LaTeX processes,
it will result in, in the bottom of the current page:
  1. ____
  2. argum

and, on the following page,
  1. ____
  2. ent

where `argument' is more than a single word. Is there a solution to
put something like `(Continued on Page ...')' or at least `(...)'?

Thanks folks.
