### How to change the style of footnote in article

• Follow

I want to change the footnote numbers appearing at the bottom from
superscript to normal.

=B2some text

I want to have:
2 some text

This minimal example below does the job, but I don't like the scrartcl
for various reasons (sorry!).
So my question is:

How can I achieve this with using article as the document class?

Thanks, Wolf

\documentclass{scrartcl}
\begin{document}
This is a footnote\footnote{and some text}
\end{document}

sigh.  the second question today that could have been solved my by
long-proposed footnote-layout extension to footmisc.sty

as footmisc stands just now, i'm afraid it can't meet your
requirements.  maybe i'll do the work soon -- hard to tell when i'm as
tired as i am just now (sorry!).

As Robin indicates, you would expect a package to handle that,
and there may be one.

However, even with the obscure methods of configuring regular
article.cls it is not difficult.

The relevant command is \@makefntext, as defined in article.cls
(and so is intended to be defined appropriately for different
styles of document), which invokes \@makefnmark for the
label.  (Why is \@makefnmark not also under the control of
the document class?)  You do *not* want to redefine
\@makefnmark because it also controls the mark in the
running text!  You want to redefine \@makefntext to use

\makeatletter
\renewcommand\@makefntext[1]{%
\parindent 1em%   CHANGE THIS AS DESIRED TOO!
\noindent
\@thefnmark\enspace #1}

Robin, I would very much appreciate this (Donald's suggestions works
nicely, I don't know how difficult it is to just include this in
footmisc and add an option for it?).

That works like a charm. Thanks a lot!
