You can remove endnotes with the note reference mark. By default, endnotes are marked by Roman numerals. You can easily remove such a Roman numeral to remove corresponding endote in Word.

To post as a guest, your comment is unpublished.· 4 years agoIn my Word document for a book, the endnotes appear at the end of each chapter (as I wanted them to do). But, those same endnotes collected at the very end of the Word document (one after the other, in the same order as they appeared chapter by chapter) as well. How can I remove only those duplicate endnotes that appear at the end of the document and retain the ones at the end of each chapter?
There should only be endnotes at the end of each chapter -- NOT at the end of the book as well.
Many thanks for any instructions you can provide!

To post as a guest, your comment is unpublished.· 3 years agoNone of the above methods worked for me until I found this tip: go to Endnote toolbar on top:
In the Bibliography section which is in the middle, click on “Convert Citations and Bibliography”.
Then click “Convert to Plain Text”. This allows you to save a copy of your document without formatted CWYW field codes. Formatted citations and bibliography are saved as text.
