convert footnotes to endnotes - missing!

I have read/watched videos that instruct to convert footnotes to endnotes you select Type, 'convert footnote to endnote'.

Or, right click and select 'convert selected footnote to endnote'. 

I have CC and am up to date, so I don't know why this option/dialog box is missing entirely from my menu. Any ideas?

Hi,

Derek could be right. Depending on your operating system's version you still could be on e.g. InDesign CC 2018.1.

InDesign CC 2019 is not available for e.g. OS X 10.11.6 and maybe you missed the warning from CC Desktop App that a new version is out but you are not able to run it with your outdated operating system.

Maybe that it is hidden. Go to Window > Workspace > Choose Extended (or some other would also be good), maybe you have to reset the workspace, then you will find the command in the type menu.

You state your version of InDesign CC is up-to-date – which exact version do you have, the feature wasn't introduced until InDesign CC2019?

I think this must be the case. I am behind in updating my operating system, and it's caught up with me!

Thanks everyone!

I am having the same issue here... Updating your system worked for you? Can you see now the menu item "convert footnotes and endnotes"? Thank you!
