How can we insert endnotes for Documents

In a Word document, the endnotes are used to indicate the source of the citations and are generally located at the end of the document.

We often need to illustrate the source of citations when writing a paper involving references. At this time, we can insert endnotes. How should we do it?


Locate the cursor before the text whose source should be indicated. Click the References and Insert Endnote buttons to jump to the end of the document. Then, you can input the content under endnote Separator.How_to_add_endnotes_to_a_document_in_WPS_Writer.gif

Double-click the number before the endnotes to jump to the associated text automatically.

At this time, an endnote superscript with the same number will appear in the text, which is called a reference superscript.How_to_add_endnotes_to_a_document_in_WPS_Writer_1.gif

To delete the wrongly added endnotes, we can select the reference superscript inserted in the text and press the Delete key to delete the contents of endnotes at the same time.How_to_add_endnotes_to_a_document_in_WPS_Writer_2.gif
