Endnote Multiple References

I am looking for a way of having one endnote in a document and reference
that same endnote from several points within the document.

The first endnote insertion is fine, the superscript link and tooltip
work as expected. Adding a cross references or links to the endnote do
not produce a clean/pleasing result. (ie. displays a different number,
without the endnote tooltip.)

Copying the first insertion other points within the document produce the
desired visual result, but generates numerous additional unprofessional
duplicate endnotes with each paste.

Any guidance or suggestions would be much appreciated.

TIA
Dave

Re: Endnote Multiple References

Hi.
I am not sure this is what you tried, but I have done this by creating a
numbered block of text at the end (not LO end notes-but what will be my
end-notes) and using cross-references to those notes in that block. It's
not automated but works functionally.

Re: Endnote Multiple References

Thanks Steve,
What you propose is very similar to the workaround I am using.
  o Create a numbered list at the end of the document.
  o Bookmark each item in the list.
  o Insert a link to the bookmark where required.
I guess nobody ever imagined that an author might need to add more than
one reference to a single endnote citation within a document.
Appreciate you taking the time to answer.
Regards
Dave

Insert > Cross-reference
Type: Endnotes
Insert reference to: Reference
Selection: Select the endnote you want to refer to

That seems to get the right number, but without styling (superscript)
and tooltip. To fix the styling, select the inserted cross-reference and
set the character style to "Endnote Anchor" - that's the style used for
the original reference, so any changes to that style will affect both.

I suspect there's no way to get the tooltip, but you can click the
second reference to jump to the endnote.

Checked on 5.1.6 (Linux Mint) and 5.3.0 (Windows)

Yeah, that's effectively inserting several identical endnotes.
