Hi Everyone,

How do you place footnotes in multi-column text? I've seen the following:

[1] Footnotes placed in same column as reference, at bottom of page
[2] Footnotes placed in same column as reference, at bottom of column (if the column is short, the footnote will not be near the bottom of the page)
[3] Footnotes in two-column layout placed only at bottom of right-hand column
[4] Footnotes placed in region that spans all columns of page (so footnotes are 1-column even if text is multi-column).

I'm especially interested in what happens when columns are short, uneven, or if the column count changes on a page.

I'm also curious how common it is to set footnotes in multiple columns when the body text is a single column.
