Endnotes in ODT format use arabic numbering by default. They look the same after saving to DOC. But MS Word sees them as lower case roman numerals. Round tripping Word->Writer->Word causes the same problem. This bug goes back to at least ver. 3.3 and is reproducible. Word 2003 and Word 2010 agree.

In that bug the user wants roman numerals, but Writer keeps switching back to arabic.

and first endnote has another problem: additional paragraph and tab

Your bug was confirmed at least 1 year ago and has not had any activity on it for over a year. Your bug is still set to NEW which means that it is open and confirmed. It would be nice to have the bug confirmed on a newer version than the version reported in the original report to know that the bug is still present -- sometimes a bug is inadvertently fixed over time and just never closed.
If you have time please do the following:
1) Test to see if the bug is still present on a currently supported version of LibreOffice (preferably 4.2 or newer).
2) If it is present please leave a comment telling us what version of LibreOffice and your operating system.
3) If it is NOT present please set the bug to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a short comment telling us your version and Operating System
Please DO NOT
1) Update the version field
2) Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
3) Set the bug to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not appropriate in this case)

Lastly, good bug reports help tremendously in making the process go smoother, please always provide reproducible steps (even if it seems easy) and attach any and all relevant material
in 22.214.171.124 on WinXP:
- endnotes transform from arabic to roman, for example 3 becomes iii. But I am not sure if it is a bug of LO or feature of doc format.
- additional paragraph in first note still appears
- endnote looks as footnote (appears on the same page) in Word. May be it is feature of Word. Or bug.
So, in last version of LO problem remains.
I still see roman numerals in Office Word 2007 with a document saved by Version: 126.96.36.199 Build ID: 644e4637d1d8544fd9f56425bd6cec110e49301b.
Not sure if this is related but the same also happens when saving a document as RTF.

> Endnotes in ODT format use arabic numbering by default.
I cannot confirm that statement. With a US English locale, when I "insert endnote" I get a roman numeral (i). (Arabic numbering IS used for FOOTnotes.)
When I open the Endnote.odt file from comment 2, I see roman numerals. They remain roman numerals after round-tripping to .docx and .rtf.
Changing to NEEDINFO: need more detail to replicate this bug. Could not replicate with bibisect-43all at LO3.6, or at LO6.0 master with English US locale.
