In-paragraph footnotes with bigfoot

Postby pippipalma » Fri Mar 29, 2013 3:52 pm

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:

  1. \documentclass[12pt]{article}
  2. \usepackage{bigfoot}
  3. \DeclareNewFootnote[para]{B}
  4. \begin{document}
  5. Text\footnoteB{a paragraph footnote}
  6. text\footnoteB{another one}
  7. text\footnoteB+{this is in a new paragraph}
  8. \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:
  1. \documentclass{book}
  2. \usepackage{bigfoot}
  3. \DeclareNewFootnote[para]{B}%[alph] % please uncomment the [alph] option to see the difference
  4. \begin{document}
  5. Text\footnoteB{a paragraph footnote}
  6. text\footnoteB{another one}
  7. text\footnoteB{another one}
  8. text\footnoteB{another one}
  9. text\footnoteB{another one}
  10. text\footnoteB+{new paragraph}
  11. text\footnoteB{another one}
  12. text\footnoteB{another one}
  13. text\footnoteB{another one}
  14. text\footnoteB{another one}
  15. text\footnoteB{another one}
  16. text\footnoteB+{this is in a new paragraph}
  17. \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.
