Adobe InDesign does footnotes well. Endnotes? Not so well—not at all, in fact. Anne-Marie Concepción has the solution for you in this week’s InDesign Secrets: a free script that converts footnotes to endnotes. It actually changes footnotes to styled cross-references at the end of your story, and reflows the text. The links to the cross-referenced destinations stay active when you export to the PDF and EPUB formats, too. (Be aware that these endnotes do not renumber when you add new entries, so it’s best to run the script after you have entered all of your footnotes.) Find out where to download the free script in this week’s free video.
