# latex: same footnote but different reference places (with hyperlink)

I had the following issue with LaTeX: I first created a footnote. Later on in the text I wanted to refer to the same footnote. The issue is that the footnote contains a hyperlink. After reading the few pages from the reference here below, I finally decided to go for this solution that avoids complicated solution and usage of special package.

Place a label inside the first footnote, and for the second reference, simply add superscript that contains a reference to the label:

text \footnote{some text\label{xx}} blablabla \textsuperscript{\ref{xx}}
