### In-paragraph footnotes with bigfoot

Hello,
within bigfoot documentation it is said that:
Footnotes can be formatted in separate paragraphs, or be run into a single paragraph. The choice is made per footnote apparatus, but can be overridden for single footnotes.

However, while it is clear that \DeclareNewFootnote[para]{B}[alph] sets in-paragraph mode for the whole footnoteB apparatus, I'm not able to find how to choose, footnote-by-footnote, between in-paragraph and normal modes.

Do you have any suggestion?

Thanks and best regards,
Giuseppe

As I understand it from the source of the documentation footnotes defined with the para option can be set in a apargraph of their own using a + variant:

\documentclass[12pt]{article}\usepackage{bigfoot}\DeclareNewFootnote[para]{B}\begin{document}Text\footnoteB{a paragraph footnote}text\footnoteB{another one}text\footnoteB+{this is in a new paragraph}\end{document}

It is exactly what I needed, thanks!
There is still an issue (shown in the following MWE) I'm not able to understand:
\documentclass{book}\usepackage{bigfoot}\DeclareNewFootnote[para]{B}%[alph] % please uncomment the [alph] option to see the difference\begin{document}Text\footnoteB{a paragraph footnote}text\footnoteB{another one}text\footnoteB{another one}text\footnoteB{another one}text\footnoteB{another one}text\footnoteB+{new paragraph}text\footnoteB{another one}text\footnoteB{another one}text\footnoteB{another one}text\footnoteB{another one}text\footnoteB{another one}text\footnoteB+{this is in a new paragraph}\end{document}

Can you explain the difference between the two cases (in particular, I should use alphalph style, but it can be obtained by adding \renewcommand{\thefootnoteB}{\alphalph{\value{footnoteB}}})?
Is there any way to format alphabetic footnote paragraphs as they are in presence of numerical footnotemarks?

Thanks and best regards,
Giuseppe

I am not at home right now, so I can't test thoroughly now but this seems like a bug to me.
