3.3.4 Creating footnotes

Footnotes may be used in many different situations. In all cases, a ‘footnote mark’ is placed as a reference in text or music, and the corresponding ‘footnote text’ appears at the bottom of the same page, separated from the music by a horizontal line. The appearance of this separator can be changed by setting the paper variable footnote-separator-markup, see \paper variables concerning headers and markups.

Footnotes within music expressions and footnotes in stand-alone text outside music expressions are created in different ways.
