Problem with number endnotes by chapter or re-starting the numbering of endnotes

I need my endnotes to re-start numbering at 1 for each chapter.

I gather that it should be possible to do this by going to Tools > Footnotes/Endnotes and changing the value for Counting. However, I only get the options 'per page' and 'per document'. I have lots of H1s, so I wonder why it doesn't assume (more or less correctly) that these are chapters (it's ok if it assumes this, most of them are). I can't find anywhere in the documentation where it says what I might have to do to define what constitutes a chapter or to otherwise fix this problem.

I've also tried to re-start the numbering by simply clicking beside a an endnote (in the endnotes section) and clicking 'Restart numbering' but this does nothing. I can't find any other way to re-start numbering.

(It perhaps goes without saying that I can't simply number all the end-notes manually. It will be 100 page master's thesis with a probably a couple hundred endnotes, so it's important that they automatically number themselves correctly, restarting at '1' each chapter.)

Thanks so much gods and mortals of the Open Source community. You folks rock my world.
