The LaTeX endnotes package

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

The package forces LaTeX to produce footnotes in a list of notes set in small type at the end of the document instead of as footnotes set on the bottom of the page on which they occur. The package stores the endnotes in an extra external file with the file extension .ent. LaTeX generates a new version of the .ent file each time you typeset the document.

How to replace footnotes with endnotes

  1. Add the endnotes package to your document.

  2. Modify the document preamble:

    1. From the Typeset menu, choose Preamble.

    2. Click the mouse in the entry area.

    3. Scroll to the end of the entries and add a new line.

    4. Type \let\footnote=\endnote and choose OK.

  3. Create the footnotes:

    1. From the Insert menu, choose Note.

    2. In the Type of Note box, select footnote.

    3. Type the footnote and choose OK.

  4. Place the insertion point at the end of the document, where you want the endnotes to appear.

  5. Enter an encapsulated TeX field.

  6. Enter the commands you need:

    1. If you want the endnotes to begin on a new page, type \newpage and press Enter.

    2. Type \begingroup and press Enter.

    3. If you want an entry for the endnotes to appear in the table of contents, type \addcontentsline{toc}{section}{Notes} and press Enter.

    4. 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.

    5. Type \theendnotes and press Enter

    6. Type \endgroup and choose OK.

  7. Choose OK.

  8. Typeset your document.

    LaTeX places any footnotes in the document in a list at the location of the encapsulated field.

You can also change existing footnotes to endnotes.

The package implements additional commands to produce numbered endnotes, produce the endnote mark in the text but no corresponding endnote, or produce an endnote but no corresponding mark in the text. Additional commands change the endnote size and produce endnote numbers or marks. See the package documentation for more information about using the package. No package options are available for the endnotes package. The package is installed in the TCITeX/TeX/LaTeX/contrib/misc directory.
