In one MS Word document I was working on this afternoon, I had to change footnotes at the bottom of each page to endnotes, which would appear at the end of the document. It's not difficult at all to do that in Word, but there was one glitch, the endnote numbers changed to Roman (i, ii, iii...) from Arabic (1, 2, 3...). So there was an additional set of steps to ensure the numbers remain the same.
- Right click on any footnote anywhere in the document.
- Select Note Options… from the drop-down list.
- In the dialogue box, click on Convert… button.
- A small dialogue box will appear with one of the three options highlighted. For our purpose, it will be Convert all footnotes to endnotes. Click OK.
- Click Close.
That's it! But, in case you want Arabic and not Roman numerals for your endnotes,
- Right click on any of the endnotes.
- Select Note Options… from the drop-down list
- In the dialogue box, change Number format: to 1, 2, 3… Click Apply
Documenting my great rediscovery for posterity.
