The LaTeX manyfoot package

Version: 5.5 - Scientific WorkPlace & Scientific Word

The manyfoot package provides independent series of footnotes for your document and groups the footnotes by series at the bottom of the page. The package is useful for producing critical editions and for other applications that require multiple independently numbered series of footnotes.

The package automatically separates groups of footnotes with vertical space. You can also add separating rules. The package provides a customized appearance for footnotes, either in standard footnote form or grouped in run-in paragraphs. You can control enumeration automatically or manually using standard enumeration schemes. Using the scheme fnsymbol is not recommended.

Using the package involves placing \newfootnote or \DeclareNewFootnote commands in the preamble of the document, then placing TeX fields containing the commands \footnotemark and \footnotetext in the body of the document where you want footnotes.

The paragraph format created by the manyfoot package conflicts with the footmisc package; otherwise, the two packages are compatible. See the package documentation for information about implementing the features.

The package is installed in the TCITeX/TeX/LaTeX/contrib/ncctools directory.
