[Tex/LaTex] Why is the footnote “glued” to the text


This is the document:

\usepackage[top=3in, bottom=3in, left=3in, right=3in]{geometry}
This is first short par\footnote{foot note}


As you can see the foot note is "glued" to the text and is not a "foot" note any more.. How can I make drop it down to the bottom of the page, where it will look like a real foot note?

Best Answer

I think you might also be interested in the package footmisc.

When you use \usepackage[bottom]{footmisc}, it always puts the footnote as much to the bottom as possible.That means that if your page breaks for whatever reasons (preventing widows or orphans), e.g., 3 lines before it would be full, the footnote is typeset to the bottom as if the page was really full.

The result is you have all the footnotes on all pages at the bottom.
