You can create Footnotes and endnotes in Word documents. There is a slight difference between footnotes and endnotes.

  1. Open your document and select the References tab. In theFootnotes group, click Show Notes.
  2. Select the notes you want to convert, and then right-click. SelectConvert to Footnote or Convert to Endnote.

To convert all footnotes or endnotes:

  1. Open the document and select the References tab.
  2. Click the Footnote & Endnote Dialog Box launcher (it appearsas a small square in the bottom-right corner of the tab). Then clickConvert....
  3. Click OK or Apply.

In this article, we will focus on 2 useful ways to insert a new page after endnotes in your Word document.

Endnotes, as the name suggests, are often placed at the end of a document. There is nothing wrong with that until someday, we find it’s impossible to directly insert a blank page after endnotes to start new contents. This is definitely annoying. Therefore, our 2 methods in this post shall be timely aid for you who are struggling with the matter.

Method 1: Use Word Command

First if the whole document is one section, then follow the bellowing steps:

  1. Put insertion pointer at the end of the document but ahead of endnotes. Or you can press “Ctrl+ End”.
  2. Then click “Page Layout” tab.
  3. Next click “Breaks”.
  4. And choose “Next Page”. All endnotes will go to a new page.
  5. Now click “References” and then the extend button to open “Footnote and Endnote” dialog box.
  6. In the box, choose “Endnotes”.
  7. Then select “End of section’.
  8. Lastly, click “Apply”. All endnotes shall go back to the end of the section and leave the new page blank where is now independent of the endnote area.

Now another situation is that a document can contain more than 1 section, then there are more actions to follow.

  1. Firstly, finish all the above steps.
  2. You will notice endnotes going to the end of its own section instead of that of the last section.

So, click “Page Layout” and the extend button to open “Page Setup” dialog box.

  1. Then click “Layout” tab.
  2. Check the “Suppress endnotes” box and choose “Whole document” for “Apply to’.
  3. Next click “OK”. Now endnotes jump to the head of that new page.
  4. Place insertion pointer inside the last section.
  5. Repeat step 2 and 3.
  6. This time clear the “Suppress endnotes” box.
  7. And choose “This section” for “Apply to”.
  8. Next click “OK”. Now endnotes shall go back to the end of the last section.
