I had stumbled on the following tweet some time ago which i found interesting that we dont provide an easy means of doing this.

  @AnnaLPeak I know that just making the word "Notes" appear above a list of endnotes in Libreoffice is much harder than it should be.

We provide a heading naming when a user inserts a TOC, so it would also be good if we provide a simple dialog asking if the user wishes to add a name above the list of endnotes during the process that it creates the endnote page, as i wasnt able to do it from the testing that i tried.

Related AskLO thread with steps describing the current method of placing a heading above endnotes:


Admittedly it would be good to make this easier (thus I agree). Hopefully any solution does not affect existing documents using this method.

Hi Owen,

Tried out your solution from askLibO and it did work, though it showed a line between the 'Notes' and the endnotes if you dont page break using 'Endnotes'.
