Changing Endnotes from Roman to Arabic Numerals in MS Word Online, 2021

Occasional Visitor

I think the title is pretty self-explanatory. I can't figure out how to change my document endnotes from Roman to Arabic numerals (from i, ii, iii to 1, 2, 3.) The document is going to a publisher and needs to be formatted in Chicago Style, so it is imperative that I change this. The first chapter of the book has 170 citations, so doing each one individually, while an option, would be very tedious. Any help would be appreciated!
