Could somebody advice how I can convert my footnotes in Libreoffice to endnotes. I have them few hundred, and I want to keep my continuous numbering. In libreoffice I know how to convert them, but it does not keep my numbering, and it devides the notes to several sections.I foun in Google that Microsofoffice converts them, but I did not find it in libre- or openoffice. Also Microsoft word did not do that in my 2007 version.

    How did you convert the footnotes to endnotes? How does libreoffice handle the numbering currently? Do you use the "master document" feature or just one big odt file? – tohuwawohu Jun 13 '14 at 12:11

Try going to Tools / Footnotes & Endnotes. Select the Footnotes tab. Change the selection from "end of page" to "end of document". It changed all of mine in the whole document, just like I was hoping for.

  • Great answer and so simple! You wouldn't believe the crazy convoluted solutions out there! – Olek Wojnar Oct 18 '18 at 16:07
  • Doesn't work if you have a combination of both endnotes and footnotes. It creates two sets of endnotes. – SteveSong Feb 23 at 16:11

If you inserted the footnotes at first, you will see the changes, just like you hope for. But if you inserted the endnotes at first, you won't do.
