The footnote pack­age by Mark Wood­ing (1997/01/28 1.13) al­lows to gather foot­notes (\begin{savenotes}) and later in­sert them (af­ter \end{savenotes}) at the bot­tom of the page, even if the in­ter­ven­ing ma­te­rial con­sists of tab­u­lars, mini­pages or framed con­tents for ex­am­ple. One can also use the \savenotes/\spewnotes syn­tax.

Also, footnote.sty pro­vides a footnote en­vi­ron­ment which al­lows to in­sert ver­ba­tim ma­te­rial.

Ear­lier re­leases of the present footnotehyper pack­age added patches for hyperref com­pat­i­bil­ity and some bug­fixes, ad­dress­ing in par­tic­u­lar the in­com­pat­i­bil­ity with color/xcolor, and with babel-frenchb, and also fix­ing the footnote en­vi­ron­ment with op­tional ar­gu­ment [NUM]. Since v0.99 all macros are de­fined in­ter­nally and the footnote pack­age is not loaded at all.

The same user in­ter­face is kept. Since v1.0 it is pos­si­ble to use footnotehyper also in ab­sence of hyperref or when the lat­ter is loaded with its hyperfootnotes=false op­tion. The or­der of load­ing of footnotehyper and hyperref is in­con­se­quen­tial.


To ex­tract the pack­age (.sty) and driver (.tex) files from foot­note­hy­per.dtx:

  • if foot­note­hy­per.ins is present: etex foot­note­hy­per.ins
  • with­out foot­note­hy­per.ins: etex foot­note­hy­per.dtx
  • or run la­tex or pdfla­tex di­rectly on foot­note­hy­per.dtx

At least three ways to pro­duce foot­note­hy­per.pdf (method (1) is pre­ferred):

  1. la­tex foot­note­hy­per.tex (twice), then dvipdfmx
  2. pdfla­tex foot­note­hy­per.dtx (twice)
  3. la­tex foot­note­hy­per.dtx (twice), then dvips, then ps2pdf

Method (1) pro­duces the small­est pdf files. Op­tions can be set in foot­note­hy­per.tex:

  • scr­doc class op­tions (pa­per size, font size, ...)
  • with or with­out source code,
  • with dvipdfmx or with la­tex+dvips or pdfla­tex.

foot­note­hy­per – hy­per­ref aware foot­note.sty

The foot­note pack­age by Mark Wood­ing dates back to 1997 and has not been made hy­per­ref com­pat­i­ble. The aim of the present pack­age is to do that.
