[Tex/LaTex] Inserting space after the number in footnotes

footnotes

Text of Footnotes are very close to their numbers. How can I make 2mm space after all footnote numbers (or 2mm before every footnote text)?

\documentclass[draft,12pt,a4paper]{article}

\begin{document}
X\footnote{x}

Y\footnote{y}
\end{document}


I'm not sure if I correctly understood your question. I guess you are trying to adjust the distance between the number of the footnote and the footnote text (and not the regular text).

If you want to do so, try this:

\documentclass[draft,12pt,a4paper]{article}
\usepackage[hang]{footmisc}
\setlength{\footnotemargin}{2mm}
\begin{document}
X\footnote{x}

Y\footnote{y}
\end{document}
