How to change typeset footnotes to endnotes

Version: 3.x, 4.x, 5.x - Scientific WorkPlace & Scientific Word

The program can typeset both footnotes and endnotes for most documents. If you add the endnotes package, you can gather footnotes in a list at the end of your document. Instead of replacing the list of footnotes generated by LaTeX, the package stores the endnote list in a separate file with the extension .ent and deletes the list after you typeset your document.

To typeset existing footnotes as endnotes

  1. Add the endnotes package to your document.
  2. From the Typeset menu, choose Preamble.
  3. Click the mouse in the entry area.
  4. At the end of the preamble entries, add a new line and type \let\footnote=\endnote and choose OK.

  5. Place the endnotes list in your document:
    1. Place the insertion point at the point in your document where the endnotes will appear.
    2. Enter an encapsulated TeX field.
    3. If you want the endnotes to begin on a new page, type \newpage and press Enter.
    4. Type \begingroup and press Enter.
    5. If you want the endnotes to be set in a normal size font instead of a smaller font, type \renewcommand{\enotesize}{\normalsize} and press Enter.
    6. If you want some extra vertical space added before each endnote, type \setlength{\parskip}{2ex} and press Enter. You can adjust the value for 2ex to match your preferred typeset appearance.
    7. If you want to list the endnotes in the table of contents, type \addcontentsline{toc}{section}{Notes}

      and press Enter.

    8. Type \theendnotes and press Enter.
    9. Type \endgroup and choose OK.
