all endnotes in a file written in MSWord2003 were loaded as footnotes

How do I stop LO from loading endnotes as footnotes - this is from now published books which I want to revise and expand. In one book there are over 230 endnotes.

If your book is stored as .doc(x), there is no solution due to compatibility issues between this format and ODF.

If you use LibreOffice, it is problematic to use files from MSWord (e.g. doc, docx).

There is no 100% compatibility between M$ and LibreOffice documents.

If you want to work in LibreOffice without problems, use only ODF files (e.g. *.odt).


Always create and save your files in LibreOffice and save them in ODF format (ODT, ODS, etc.).
Always keep these files as their source. If you need other formats for distribution to partners, you can open an ODF file and save and distribute another format with ″ Save as… ″.

This way, you always have working files available in your system environment.
