[Issue] Formatting endnotes according to Russian standards

Postby dm_dobrowolski » Wed Jul 23, 2008 1:15 pm

Im running OOo 2.2 under MS Windows XP. And I do need to use endnotes (not footnotes) in my articles, 'cause this is a standart requirement of the humanity scientific editions in Russia. I've learned myself how to force OOo Writer to place endnotes not at the new page but in the end of a section. But I'd like to avoid both the endnote separator line and the space appearing instead of it when it's width is set to 0pt. And (I'm fastidious, but I really can't help it) I'd like to found some place for the word "Примечания" ('Notes'), which has to be placed before the first endnote according to those :evil: :evil: :evil: rules (not just in the text after the linebreak, but in the beginnig of the endnote section if possible...)

Could someone help me, please?

The Endnotes/Footnotes separator is set in the page style. Double click the page style name in the status bar bottom of window and go to the Footnote tab. Adjust the spacing and set the line weight to 0. Add a space in the Spacing to footnote contents field so that you can insert a frame that you'll anchor to Paragraph, anchoring it to the first footnote paragraph. See attachment.

Thanks to add '[Solved]' at beginning of your first post title (edit button) if your issue has been fixed.

Thank you, but it's again a bypass, not a solution. The problem is that the frame with "Notes" inscription disappears when file is saved into *.doc and is placed after first endnote sign in *.rtf. On contrary, the separator line is there back. Lots of my colleagues still use MS Word, MS Word, MS Word and MS Word only (even as an email client), so Carthago must be destroyed, not decorated.

For some time I'll leave this issue "unsolved", and if nothing more appears, I'll think about a feature request.

PS Maybe somebody knows, whether an ODT file syntax allows changing footnote/endnote separator at all? or lines are the only possible?

Of course, if you don't give all the context, we can't give you the appropriate answer :roll:

The feature request named "Editable footnote/endnote separators for Writer" is submitted.
See http://www.openoffice.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=92923
Vote for it, please.
Also if you're interested in what was discussed here, you may want to vote for issue #3329 "Should be able to disable page break before endnotes":
