Description Do 2019-11-26 10:20:25 UTC
Description:
1) there are no way to add easly a heading for endnotes (there is a dirty workaraound)
2) it's impossible to add page after EndNotes
3) There are many issue on endnote from long time ago

So could be a valid solution to re-implement endnote like a Toc?

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Add 50-60 end notes in A5 (enough to fill at least 2 pages)
2.try to add an heading
3.try to add a page breack after endnotes

Actual Results:
EndNots seems to be an object detached from the rest of book (yes, i'm writing a book 370 pages).
I can't decide where add endnotes list
I con't organize my tocs (list of figure, list of tables, detailed index, endnotes, biography, etc).

Expected Results:
Easy solution is to handle endnote like the list of figure


Reproducible: Always


User Profile Reset: No

Duplicate of bug 89736

Seems to be related to bug 102835
At least a workaround could be to work with a master document (but I don't know).

Yes, so please have a look at them, before you file a new bug report to avoid duplicates.

It's not really clear to me what's your idea with "handle endnote like the list of figure"

Nothing to add. There are likely more requests about this, and I would make it duplicate(s) to draw attention on it.

Yes I know there are many bug about endnotes, I just would comunicate a suggesion to solve in different way the topic.

My hint is to create a new insertable index, like TOC or list of figure or liste of Tables.

So every one could choice where add the endnotes list.

P.S.
I use EndNotes with a special VB function that add an endnote for each external hyperlink.

So more general: "Give possibility to define a place in the document for endnotes." Correct?
Comment 5 Do 2019-11-27 12:09:34 UTC
place and title

> place and title

Title is covered by bug 89736.

So I changed bug summary to make suggestion more clear. For me it sounds like a valid enhancement. So now I won't close it as duplicate, although there is a relation to other bugs.
Comment 7 Do 2019-11-27 12:24:02 UTC
Ok.

I read about a workaraound related to use a section, but:
1) I'm not sure a section works correctly with any amount of pages
2) Also for section we found the problem to define where add the endnotes

Thank you
