Reposition footnotes from bottom of pages to end of document

Post by abe-ariel@013.net » Sat May 10, 2014 3:48 pm

Hi,

A 5-page Hebrew scientific paper with 25 footnotes was written by Mellel 2.2.7.1 (now in the process of upgrading to latest version).
The footnotes are positioned at the bottom of each page.
It is required to re-locate all footnotes at the very end of the paper.
How can I do that in one go?

Platform MacBook, Snow Leopard (10.6.8)

Thanks & shavu'a tov

Change the note style from footnote to endnote. This will collect all of your notes at the end of the document.

Thank you so much.
I edited the Note Attributes to End Notes and it worked like a charm.
Great help!
Tks again

I noticed that you have to make the shift by going to the Insert menu and then changing the note attributes. It seems like it would be possible to make the change in Style Sets, but those note preferences seem to operate independently--or at least not to effect the change from, say, bottom of page to end of document.

Style sets are a little different. When you make a change to the Style Set that you are actively using, the changes do not propagate to the current document. After you make changes to the Style Set, you have to re-apply it to the current document. So, make your changes, then reselect the same Style Set for the menu, and you should find that your footnotes are now endnotes.

(I'm not sure if this is a bug or not, but this has been the behavior in Mellel ever since the beginning.)
