# Changing the mark of endnotes

I am using both footnotes and endnotes in a chapter with the help of the endnotes package.

However, both footnotes and endnotes are numbered by Arabic number.

I would like to keep the Arabic numbers for the footnotes, but I would like to change the mark of the endnotes to Roman numbers, or some other symbols.

That works perfectly ! Thank you ! Is there a similar way to convert the endnote marks in dagger, starts, etc. ? –  Pieter Thyssen Dec 30 '12 at 9:21
\renewcommand\theendnote{\fnsymbol{endnote}} should do. Beware that only a limited set of symbols is provided and too large counter numbers can cause errors. –  cgnieder Dec 30 '12 at 14:02

\renewcommand{\theendnote}{\Roman{endnote}}


to your document preamble. Also, taking from cgnieder's comment,

\renewcommand\theendnote{\fnsymbol{endnote}}


should give you a symbol set for the endnotes rather than Roman numerals. There is a limited set though, as can be seen from a subsidiary definition of \@fnsymbol in latex.ltx:

\def\@fnsymbol#1{\ensuremath{\ifcase#1\or *\or \dagger\or \ddagger\or
\mathsection\or \mathparagraph\or \|\or **\or \dagger\dagger
\or \ddagger\ddagger \else\@ctrerr\fi}}


So, you'll receive the following output:

1. * -> *
2. \dagger -> †
3. \ddagger -> ‡
4. \mathsection -> §
5. \mathparagraph -> ¶
6. \| -> ||
7. ** -> **
8. \dagger\dagger -> ††
9. \ddagger\ddagger -> ‡‡
10. Error
