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)

•  Align endnotes on the period (a/k/a/ "full stop") following the endnote number

•  Endnote placement and restarting numbering when using the Master/Subdocument feature


Important

¤  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.

¤  You should exit from editing any Endnotes before using these methods. 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.]

Placement of endnotes (i.e., their position in the document)

Combine multiple "endnoted" documents into a single document

(1) Place endnotes at the end of a chapter, subdocument, or other section of a longer document

(2) Place endnotes before (above) a bibliography or other end matter in the document

(3) Convert endnotes to ordinary text so they can be copied/pasted elsewhere

Use a single document to "link" multiple "endnoted" documents

Placement of endnotes (i.e., their position in the document)


First, to see the effects of these methods 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 of a longer document.

This restarts endnote numbering with "Endnote 1" in each chapter or section.

[NOTE: For information about the placement and renumbering of endnotes when using the Master/Subdocument feature see here.]
At the end of each chapter or section where you want endnotes to appear (normally, this is just before a hard page break [HPg]) click on Insert, Footnote/Endnote; then click on Endnote Placement button:
Endnote Placement button

Then select the choice to put them at the insertion point and restart numbering with "1":
Endnote Placement dialog - second radio button

Click OK, then Close on the Footnote/Endnote dialog to return to the document.

Notes:

(1)
You may need to delete an extra blank page following each chapter's endnotes that WordPerfect might insert when using this method. (Just delete the [HPg] code in Reveal Codes.)

(2) If you later delete or add endnotes to the document, the notes will re-number automatically.

(3) 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. (Any such extra page can be deleted later.)
Method 2

Use WordPerfect menu selections to place endnotes before (above) a bibliography or other end matter in the document. This maintains the same endnote numbering as existed before the relocation of the endnotes.
[Similar to Method 1:] Place your cursor before the bibliography or other end matter, click on Insert, Footnote/Endnote; then click on Endnote Placement button.

Then select the choice to put them at the insertion point:
Endnote Placement dialog - radio button 1

Click OK, then Close on the Footnote/Endnote dialog 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.)
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.

Combine multiple "endnoted" documents into a single document


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 very end of the document's body text, not inside an endnote or footnote or other substructure or formatting. 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 use Insert, File to insert the second file. When this file is inserted all endnotes (for both documents) should appear at the end, properly renumbered.

Repeat for subsequent documents.

Use a single document to "link" multiple "endnoted" documents

See MAKESUBS in the Library: A WordPerfect 9+ macro that inserts multiple files (e.g., book chapters) into the current (master) document as subdocuments.

Many tips, including some relating specifically to positioning and restarting endnotes when using the master/subdocument feature.
