An endnote consists of two linked parts: the endnote reference number that appears in text, and the endnote text that appears at the end of a story or at the end of the document. You can create endnotes or import them from Word or RTF documents. Endnotes are automatically numbered as they are added to a document. Numbering restarts in each story. You can control the numbering style, appearance, and layout of endnotes. Also, the numbering auto-adjusts based on the rearrangements of the endnotes in the text.
You can import endnotes from a word document having endnotes using Microsoft Word Import Options. The option to import endnotes is enabled by default.
You can import multiple Word documents at the same time. Endnotes of all the documents are imported in a single text frame.
To make changes to endnote numbering and layout, choose Type > Document Endnote Options. Changes you make affect existing endnotes and all new ones.
The following options appear in the Endnote Options dialog box:
Choose a paragraph style that formats the endnote title. The menu displays the paragraph styles available in the Paragraph Styles panel. By default, the [Basic Paragraph] style is used. The [Basic Paragraph] style may not have the same appearance as the default font settings for the document.
Specify the number used for the first endnote in the story. The Start At option is especially useful for documents in a book. Endnote numbering is not continued across documents in a book.
If you have multiple documents in a book with continued page numbering, select Continuous to start the endnote numbering in each chapter to continue where the last chapter ends. Select Restart Every Story to start each story in a document with the same Start At number.
This option determines the appearance of the endnote reference number, which is superscript by default. If you prefer to format the number using a character style (such as a character style that includes OpenType superscript settings), choose Apply Normal, and specify the character style.
Choose a character style to format the endnote reference number. For example, instead of using superscript, select a character style at a normal position with an elevated baseline. The menu displays the character styles available in the Character Styles panel.
Choose a paragraph style that formats the endnote text for all endnotes in the document. The menu displays the paragraph styles available in the Paragraph Styles panel. By default, the [Basic Paragraph] style is used. The [Basic Paragraph] style may not have the same appearance as the default font settings for the document.
The separator determines the white space that appears between the endnote number and the start of the endnote text. To change the separator, first select or delete the existing separator, and then choose a new separator. You can include multiple characters. To insert white-space characters, use the appropriate metacharacter, such as ^m for em space.
Select this option to determine how endnotes are maintained for a given document. Select Story to create a different endnote frame for each story. Select Document to have one endnote frame for entire document. This option can also be used to change the scope.
The default option is set to On A New Page that creates a new page for the defined scope. You cannot change this option in InCopy.
Select this option to show prefixes or suffixes in the endnote reference, the endnote text, or both. This option is especially useful for placing endnotes within characters, such as .
Prefixes appear before the number, such as [1.Type a character, or characters, or select an option for Prefix. To select special characters, click the icon next to the Prefix control to display a menu.
Suffixes appear after the number, such as 1].Type a character, or characters, or select an option for Suffix. To select special
characters, click the icon next to the Suffix control to display a menu.
As you edit endnote text, note the following:
- You can select and apply character and paragraph formatting to endnote text. You can also select and change the appearance of the endnote reference number, but the recommended method is using the Document Endnote Options dialog box.
- When you cut or copy text that includes the endnote reference number, the endnote text is also added to the clipboard. If you copy the text to a different document, the endnotes in that text use the characteristics of the new document’s numbering and layout appearance.
- If you clear overrides and character styles on a paragraph that includes an endnote reference marker, the footnote reference numbers lose the attributes you applied in the Document Endnote Options dialog box.
