Endnotes 2 test files (word and wordperfect formats)
Endnotes always start on a new page.
This should definitely NOT be the case.
It should be possible to have endnotes on the same page as the end of the document, as it is the case with MS Word and Corel WordPerfect.
Better still, it should be possible to have endnotes at different places, for exemple if you have several articles and want endnotes for each.
This is possible with WordPerfect, apparently not with Word.

Workaround: Highlight all text prior to the footnotes and insert a section. Use the Endnote option "Collect at end of section". This is however only effective for ODT and not DOC or DOCX. Summary amended to reflect this fact and the format of the provided example.

Thanks a lot. It works!
I also ran into this bug when importing a RTF document that contained Endnotes. It's likely an issue with many document formats besides .doc and .docx.
You've done a lot of work on RTF and DOCX importer lately, so I CC'd you to raise your attention to this issue. Feel free to remove.

I noticed you're working in this area. Is this something you could take a look at?
As Owen Genat noted in comment #3, this can be accomplished in ODF by inserting a section. However, by default, a section doesn't seem to be used for the main document. Most of the duplicates are asking for this option without using sections, and that would certainly simplify cross-compatibility with docx/rtf etc.
This kind of major adjustment needs to be done by someone with a good overview of writer - not me.
Perhaps if it was visible the pagebreak to users, they would simply be able to extract it. It's just an idea. I'm not a developer, just a user. :)

I strongly support the OP's request to be able to add endnotes at the end of the document (without having to create a section first, and without a page break).
