Problem converting footnotes to endnotes

Post by gdutton » 2009-09-04 08:12:32

Hi, I may be missing something obvious, but am using Pro 1.3 and cannot convert footnotes to endnotes, even though I follow the manual's procedure:

• select all foonote text
• go to status bar's green box, click to show menu.

All I get then is a menu item that shows the current form (ie. foonotes), and I see no option for converting to endnotes.

Any clarification would be appreciated.

But you do also see the other form "Endnote", don't you?
Just select that, and then the footnote becomes an endnote.

On second thought I realize something. You might have a file that has no endnote style. In that case you need to add the endnote style. (The easiest way to do that that I can see, is to copy it out of some other document.)

phspaelti is right, probably the file you are working with lacks an "Endnote" style. As suggested you can copy-paste (or drag-drop) one in. Ideally Nisus Writer should provide a way to add such a style automatically- I believe it's filed as a feature enhancement, but I'll make sure.

Thanks to you both. This makes sense, and indeed the problem was solved when I added an Endnote style to the document. Now clicking on the green star yields both options (when earlier it had only one).
