On Pages, I need endnotes divided by chapter, but

by jakm / April 26, 2012 3:09 AM PDT

I just can't get it done.

My document is divided into sections (for each chapter), after Chapter 1, when I go to insert endnote numbers in the text, it just continues numbering from Chapter 1.

So what I need is:
1) numbered endnotes in each chapter of the text, with endnotes at the end of the document starting at 1 under each Chapter heading ...

2) I need the pages to be numbered continuously.

No matter what I try, I can do one, but not both.

Is this on the iPad?

You didn't say but I thought it was for a simple reason that I'm encountering folk that do run that on the iPad and then discover it's not as capable as other word processors.

When it comes to heavy work, you may want Word or LibreOffice. More at

And this is a good example of why a printer driver is needed
by R. Proffitt Forum moderator / April 26, 2012 3:17 AM PDT

Without a printer driver we can't determine exactly how the stuff falls on the page so we can't do DTP (remember that?) on devices that didn't print.

It appears you are about to learn more.

I think I would have to use Word for this.
by R. Proffitt Forum moderator / April 26, 2012 5:03 AM PDT

Tablets are nice but I'm encountering folk that think or thought they would be as capable as a laptop.

The lesson about this appears to be that more folk will have to learn that this new platform is new and may take awhile to catch up.

PS. In time LibreOffice will happen.

(NT) I'm using a Macbook, not an iPad or any tablet.

Then I'd try this in Word or LibreOffice.

When it comes to heavy formatting you may have to use better software.

I'm wondering if this article from Apple would help you

I tried that ...

from the link you gave me -

"To restart mark numbering:
Choose Restarts on Each Page or Restarts for Each Section from the Numbering pop-up menu in the Document pane of the Document Inspector."

But it still numbers the endnotes continuously ... the mark numbers in the text, and in the list of endnotes at the end of the document.
Beats me, LOL!
