[Tex/LaTex] repetitive footnotes

footnoteslabels

Is it possible to have the footnotes not to repeat in the same page and take the old number?

In other words, even if the footnote labels are same, can the footnotes have same number.

here is my MWE.

\documentclass[a4paper,10pt]{book}   
\usepackage[para]{footmisc}    % to have footnotes in a line
\begin{document}
This is my test document which has these four footnotes. 
Footnote1\footnote{one}, 
footnote2\footnote{two}, 
footnote3\footnote{three}
and last footnote\footnote{one} to show that fourth one repeats.
\end{document}

The question is in the above example, i would like the last footnote to have 1 and not 4.

Best Answer

The fixfoot package defines a command \DeclareFixedFootnote, which you could use as follows:

\documentclass[a4paper,10pt]{book}   
\usepackage[para]{footmisc}    % to have footnotes in a line
\usepackage{fixfoot}
\DeclareFixedFootnote{\myfnone}{one}
\begin{document}
This is my test document which has these four footnotes. 
Footnote1\myfnone{}, 
footnote2\footnote{two}, 
footnote3\footnote{three}
and last footnote\myfnone{} to show that fourth one repeats.
\end{document}

The package will take care of the case where its second use is on a later page.
