### Tufte - I need sidenote and footnote

I'm using the Tufte Template.
The template replace all footnotes to sidenotes.
I need sidenotes to make small notes (for example, references a book). The sidenotes are numbered 1, 2, 3...
But in some cases I have a big note, and I want to put it in a footnote, for spaces reasons. The footnotes are numbered a, b, c, d...
I don't know how to do it. How can I redefine the \footnote command in latex?
Thanks a lot.

What template? Can you give us a link?

I'm using the Tutte Template with Lyx.

\documentclass[a4paper,14pt,twoside]{tufte-book}\begin{document}First paragraph \sidenote{This is the first paragraph, numbered 1}Second paragraph \footnote{The second paragraph is numbered a. This is a long note, and I want to do a footer note. shsdjgshd ghg kjhgskjoewiotwiopjgwiojhg wgsdkhgçsdjg sdklghsdklgsdjg hsdjgsdhgskd ghsdlgosdgjs dlgshbdkgsdlg shdskldhg sdlghsd gsjdhg}\end{document}

This won't be easy because the tufte classes go to some lengths redefining footnotes. Quote the source:

%%% Transform existing \footnotes into \sidenotes% Sidenote: Where God meant footnotes to go.'' ---Tufte

Yes, that is the problem.
Can you suggest me a template with marginnotes AND footnotes?
Regards.

That would be the default for all standard classes as well as KOMA and memoir.
\documentclass[%fontsize=14pt]{scrbook}\usepackage{geometry}\geometry{a4paper,twoside,marginparwidth=5cm,outer=6cm}\usepackage{blindtext}\usepackage{marginnote}\begin{document}First paragraph \marginnote{This is the first paragraph, numbered 1}Second paragraph \blindtext\footnote{\blindtext}\end{document}

I will re-do the Tufte template with footnotes and sidenotes from other template, of course!
I've just tested the Memoir Template and I works.
Thanks a lot.
