LibreOffice Writer


Is it possible to place End Notes and text on the same page in LibreOffice Writer? Can anyone point me how?

The only way I can manage it is to put the text in as a header, which is crazy.

By definition, endnotes go at the end (yes, really) and so what you want are footnotes. In OpenOffice, you put the cursor where you want the cue and click on Insert - Footnote. After you've chosen the cue, it takes you to the bottom of the page to enter the note. I presume that LibreOffice is the same.

Will custom page styles allow you to have endnotes on the same page?

I was also wondering what "End Notes" means. All I have heard of are Footnotes and those are pretty easy to insert.

Endnotes are just a different style for notes in academic/technical papers. Footnotes (as the name implies) go on the bottom (foot) of the page where they occur. Endnotes are all bundled together and go at end of the article usually just before the bibliography.

If you go to Insert -> Footnote/Endnote... that might get you started.

Thanks guys, I explained myself badly.

I know end notes go at the end academic style. I happen to have a number of four and 8 page documents, which need editing from time to time. They are talk outlines(8 page for translation) and they may have 3 and a bit(= 4 pages) or 7 and a bit pages, and half a dozen or less endnotes. I print both sides and it just seems a shame to use an extra page for the endnotes if I could copy them onto the end of the previous page.

They are needed in case someone asks where I got my info.

So it is actually the Bibliography. Well, how did you put it together, just by hand or using some function within libreoffice ? By convention it is usually a separate page.

I found this thread on the OpenOffice.org forum which I quote here:
Quote:
Put your text in a section, then configure the endnotes (in the section properties, last tab) to be placed at the end of the section.

Thanks, bigdriver, that looks like it could work. In fact, I just tried it now and it does work. I used a new Document and put the entire text in a section. That sorts it.

I remember my first word processor was an electric typewriter with save/recall, and had none of today's fancy features. It was part of an office suite of 6 programs (word processor, spreadsheet, database, graphing tool, a putty type thing & terminal) for CP/M all on a 180k floppy, which all ran under 64k of memory. Mind you, the Amstrad 128 I used it on had a spare 64k page, or a massive 128k all together when you had games going :-/.
