There is nothing wrong with that until someday, we find it’s impossible to directly insert a blank page after endnotes to start new contents. This is definitely annoying. Therefore, our 2 methods in this post shall be timely aid for you who are struggling with the matter.

Method 1: Use Word Command

First if the whole document is one section, then follow the bellowing steps:

  1. Put insertion pointer at the end of the document but ahead of endnotes. Or you can press “Ctrl+ End”.
  2. Then click “Page Layout” tab.
  3. Next click “Breaks”.
  4. And choose “Next Page”. All endnotes will go to a new page.Click "Page Layout"->Click "Breaks"->Click "Next Page"
  5. Now click “References” and then the extend button to open “Footnote and Endnote” dialog box.Click "References"->Click the Button
  6. In the box, choose “Endnotes”.
  7. Then select “End of section’.
  8. Lastly, click “Apply”. All endnotes shall go back to the end of the section and leave the new page blank where is now independent of the endnote area.Choose "Endnotes"->Select "End of section"->Click "Apply"Endnotes at the end of last section

Now another situation is that a document can contain more than 1 section, then there are more actions to follow.

  1. Firstly, finish all the above steps.
  2. You will notice endnotes going to the end of its own section instead of that of the last section.Endnote going to the end of its own section

So, click “Page Layout” and the extend button to open “Page Setup” dialog box.Click "Page Layout"->Click the Extend Button

  1. Then click “Layout” tab.
  2. Check the “Suppress endnotes” box and choose “Whole document” for “Apply to’.
  3. Next click “OK”. Now endnotes jump to the head of that new page.Click "Layout"->Check "Suppress endnotes" Box->Choose "Whole document" for “Apply to”->Click "OK"
  4. Place insertion pointer inside the last section.
  5. Repeat step 2 and 3.
  6. This time clear the “Suppress endnotes” box.
  7. And choose “This section” for “Apply to”.
  8. Next click “OK”. Now endnotes shall go back to the end of the last section.Click "Layout"->Clear "Suppress endnotes" Box->Choose "This section" for "Apply to"->Click "OK"

Method 2: Run Word Macro

  1. Press “Alt+ F11” to trigger VBA editor.
  2. Then click “Normal” and then the “Insert”.
  3. And choose “Module” to create a new one.Click "Normal"->Click "Insert"->Click "Module"
  4. Double click the module to open editing area on the right side.
  5. Now if you have a document with only one section, then copy the following macro:
Sub InsertNewPageForOneSectionDoc()
  Selection.EndKey Unit:=wdStory
  Selection.InsertBreak Type:=wdSectionBreakNextPage
 
  With Selection.EndnoteOptions
    .Location = wdEndOfSection
    .NumberingRule = wdRestartContinuous
    .StartingNumber = 1
    .NumberStyle = wdNoteNumberStyleLowercaseRoman
  End With
End Sub

And if you have a document with multi-section, you need this macro:

Sub InsertNewPageForDocWithSections()
  Selection.EndKey Unit:=wdStory
  Selection.InsertBreak Type:=wdSectionBreakNextPage
 
  With Selection.EndnoteOptions
    .Location = wdEndOfSection
    .NumberingRule = wdRestartContinuous
    .StartingNumber = 1
    .NumberStyle = wdNoteNumberStyleLowercaseRoman
  End With
 
  With ActiveDocument.PageSetup
    .SuppressEndnotes = True
  End With
 
  Selection.MoveUp Unit:=wdLine, Count:=2
 
  With Selection.PageSetup
    .SuppressEndnotes = False
  End With
End Sub
  1. Finally, hit “Run”.Paste Codes->Click "Run"
