Footnote Endnote configuration

Post by pascalpaulus » Fri May 04, 2018 10:35 am

Hi

I worked on a long text (30 pages) with over a hundred notes.
I configured footnote to endnote with the build in bottom in the "reference" menu.
Everything ok.
I saved the document.
When reopening the document, endnotes appear automatically as footnote.
I can configure with the same menu-option again to endnote.
Everything ok. But, when reopening, again, endnotes appear as footnotes.

I can save as pdf with endnotes, but I can't forward the docx format to a colleague for editing configured with endnotes. The document always opens with footnotes and not with endnotes. Am I doing something wrong?

Sincerely yours,
Pascal Paulus

Hereby a text I worked on.
I made a pdf copy to show how endnotes were, as configured in the insert menu, before closing the document.
I attach also the document, when reopened, where endnotes where automatically reconverted to footnotes, at the end of each page.
I hope this helps you to understand what I tried to explain.

Sincerely yours,
Pascal Paulus

This problem was fixed long time ago. Please update your SoftMaker Office 2018 to the latest service pack and then try again.

I have the same problem and the free 2018 version says its updated, will I need to buy the 2021 version to get around this?

As SoftMaker Office 2018/FreeOffice 2018 are older versions, and we have already released many service packs and fixes for these softwares, there will be no more service packs. So, for latest features and updates, please upgrade your software to SoftMaker Office 2021.
