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)
Footnotes and Endnotes: Setting or changing

Placement of endnotes (i.e.,
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 for more.
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 this method.
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.
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
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
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.
