footnoteElement
Question mark

A footnote.

Includes additional remarks and references on the same page with footnotes. A footnote will insert a superscript number that links to the note at the bottom of the page. Notes are numbered sequentially throughout your document and can break across multiple pages.

To customize the appearance of the entry in the footnote listing, see footnote.entry. The footnote itself is realized as a normal superscript, so you can use a set rule on the super function to customize it.

Example

Check the docs for more details.
#footnote[https://typst.app/docs]
Preview

The footnote automatically attaches itself to the preceding word, even if there is a space before it in the markup. To force space, you can use the string #" " or explicit horizontal spacing.

By giving a label to a footnote, you can have multiple references to it.

How to number footnotes.

Default: "1"

#set footnote(numbering: "*")
