Endnote Tips -
How to place endnotes at the end of each
chapter, subdocument, or other section (or any place you want
them), instead of at the very end of the document
How to combine several files that contain
endnotes (see here)

tabs and other formatting in WordPerfect notes
Placement of endnotes (i.e., their
position in the document)
The following menu choices refer to the <WordPerfect>
menu (right-click on the top menu bar for a choice of menu).
If you use a <Microsoft Word> menu, the choices might be
absent from your menu (but not from the program), or they might
be found under another menu selection. See here
Note also that you should exit from editing
any Endnotes first. To do so, simply
(1) click anywhere in the body text area of the document, or
(2) use the Close button on the Endnotes property bar, or (3)
use File, Close. [Endnotes (and footnotes) are separate "document
substructures." Any of these methods should get you back
to the main document.]
First, you must have a document that already
has some endnotes in it. Then choose one of the following methods
to position those endnotes.
Method 1: Use WordPerfect menu selections to place endnotes
at the end of a chapter, subdocument, or other section.
This restarts endnote numbering with "Endnote 1" in
each chapter or section.
At the end of each chapter or subdocument's
body text (normally, this is just before a hard page break [HPg]),
click on Insert, Footnote/Endnote; then click on Endnote Placement
button and select the choice to put them at the insertion point
and restart numbering (in WP9: "Insert endnotes at insertion
point and restart numbering"); click OK, then Close, to
return to the document. You may need to delete a blank page following
each chapter's endnotes that WordPerfect may insert while using
Notes: (1) If you later delete or add endnotes
to the chapter, the notes will re-number automatically. (2) If
the last body text in the chapter is enclosed in a paragraph
style, you may need to manually insert a hard page break (Ctrl+Enter)
following the paragraph style's ending code before using this
Method 2: Use WordPerfect menu selections to place endnotes
before a bibliography or other end matter in the document.
This maintains the same endnote numbering as existed before the
relocation of the endnotes.
Place your cursor before the bibliography
or other end matter, click on Insert, Footnote/Endnote, then
choose the Endnote Number radio button. Just under that radio
button is a pushbutton, "Endnote Placement." Click
it and choose "Insert endnotes at insertion point."
Click OK, then Close to return to the document.
You may have to add/delete some hard returns,
hard page breaks, or other codes to tidy up. (Open Reveal Codes
to help to find any errant codes.)
WP7 users: The process in Method 1 and Method
2 is similar, but the actual menu sections are slightly different
from those in WP8/Wp9.
Method 3: Use a macro such as NOTE2TXT.WCM to convert endnotes
to ordinary text, then paste the notes at the end of the appropriate
chapters or before a bibliography or other end matter.
NOTE2TXT is a macro to convert Footnotes or Endnotes to ordinary
(bracketed) text at the original location of the note numbers
in the document. An option allows placing the converted notes
in a separate document, where they can be formatted, copied to
another location such as the end of individual chapters, etc.
Assume you have several documents, some (or
all) of which contain their own endnotes. You can combine them
into one document with Insert>File and have all endnotes appear
at the end of the combined document.
Start with the first document, and put your
cursor at the very end. Look in Reveal Codes to be sure you are
at the end of the document's body text, not inside an endnote
or footnote or other substructure. If the cursor is properly
positioned, in Reveal Codes you will see nothing to the right
of the RC cursor ... just blank space.
Then create a new blank page or two (with
Ctrl+Enter). The endnotes for the first doc should now be at
the very end, pushed down on to a new page.
Now, move the cursor back up onto the intervening
blank page and do Insert>File to insert the second file. The
second file comes in and all endnotes (for both the first document
and second document) should appear at the end, properly renumbered.
Repeat for subsequent document.
