Converting Footnotes to Endnotes

Is there a way to convert endnotes to footnotes and vice versa?

Greetings and welcome to the community forum!

Notes created as footnotes can be switched at any time to appear at the end of the page or the end of the document. Notes created as endnotes don't have such an option.

It looks like it would be possible to switch them in the xml markup with a text editor if you were desperate.

It is possible to convert footnotes to end notes.
you an click in the toolbar and then footnote .A symbol is inserted in the text and insertion pint moves to footnote next
But I don't think there is a option for doing it vice-versa.
