First off, ever since I ditched MSOffice and started using LibreOffice, I’ve had nothing but head aches, frustrations and ridiculous solutions to things that used to be easy. Had to get that out, I’m beyond frustrated…
The issue I’m trying to solve for the past 48hrs is with the page numbering of the endnotes.
I have my manuscript formatted for printing with pages mirrored so that left and right have their margins alternated, needed for binding. I have endnotes at the end of the last chapter. First page and chapters are correctly setup for numbering, where I use ‘left’ and ‘right’ styles for mirroring the position of the page number so that it always sits on the outside of the page.
Now the endnotes are set in ‘Footnotes and Endnotes’ where you set the style used for the endnotes.
This effectively ‘locks’ the style for the endnotes so you CANNOT use alternating page styles to have the page
numbers mirrored. This is ridiculous, cause it means I simply cannot have the page numbers the way the rest is numbered.
If anyone can tell me if there’s even a solution for this, though I can’t find anything about this.
I’m just wondering how everyone then manages to have the page numbers mirrored in the first place.
Only option left is to center them, but that’s not always ideal to say the least.
This thing may ‘work’ in general and do some things office can, but it feels and acts clunky, amateur-ish, and the information available is awfully confusing. I’m basically stuck until I find a solution for this, or either just move back to something that works.
