# How do I refer to the same footnote more than once in LaTeX?

## The quick and dirty way

In the case that you just need to refer to the last added footnote, you can also simply put \footnotemark[\value{footnote}] in your text. But please consider the longer version as well as this one.

## The long term solution

Put the following new commands in the preamble of your document

\newcommand{\footnoteremember}[2]{
\footnote{#2}
\newcounter{#1}
\setcounter{#1}{\value{footnote}}
}
\newcommand{\footnoterecall}[1]{
\footnotemark[\value{#1}]
}


You can now add footnotes in your document, and remember a reference to them with, e.g., \footnoteremember{myfootnote}{This is my footnote} and then refer to this footnote again with \footnoterecall{myfootnote}.

Note that each reference can only be used once, LaTeX will generate errors when references are duplicate.
