Bug ID: 103249
           Summary: Enhancement: convert all footnotes to endnotes at once
                    (and/or vice versa) plus additional conversion options
           Product: LibreOffice
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: medium
         Component: Writer

The option to convert all notes in one shot would be a great feature for
authors or typesetters with documents that contain a lot of footnotes or
endnotes. It is very easy to do it manually, in the case of odt files by
unzipping contents.xml from the .odt, then just changing the note-class
instances accordingly, e.g. with the sed command, then updating the odt with
the zip command. (For fodt files it's even simpler to do.) So I assume it would
be comparably easy to implement it into LibreOffice Writer. There should also
be a couple of sub-options:

(1) Exchange footnotes and endnotes
[This would change all footnotes into endnotes, and all previous endnotes into
(2) Change footnotes into endnotes and merge with existing endnotes
(3) Change endnotes into footnotes and merge with existing footnotes
[Sub-options 2 & 3 would require renumbering.]
