Inline and multi-line footnotes

May 18, 2016

Blot now supports inline and multi paragraph footnotes! Here’s an overview of the types of footnotes you can use:


Here is a footnote reference,[^1] and another.[^longnote]. Here is an inline
note.^[Inlines notes are easy since you don't have to pick an identifier
and move down to type the note.]

[^1]: Here is the first footnote.

[^longnote]: Here's one with multiple lines.

    Subsequent paragraphs are indented to show that they belong to the
 previous footnote. You can indent again to embed pre-formatted text:

        var foo = ‘bar’;

    The whole paragraph can be indented, or just the first
    line.  In this way, multi-paragraph footnotes work like
    multi-paragraph list items.

This paragraph won't be part of the note, because it
isn't indented.


Here is a footnote reference,1 and another.2. Here is an inline note.3

This paragraph won’t be part of the note, because it isn’t indented.


  1. Here is the first footnote.

  2. Here’s one with multiple lines.

    Subsequent paragraphs are indented to show that they belong to the previous footnote. You can indent again to embed pre-formatted text:
