Marginnote Package

2009-08-29 Thread Jasper Diego-Story
I am looking to use margin notes, and the functionality I am seeking
seems to extend beyond the standard marginpar command, so I am using
the marginnote package.

I am looking to have margin notes on both sides, on a single-sided
document in the book class. I cannot quite seem to see how this works,
however. For margin notes on the right, I use \marginnote{text here}
for margins on the right. I cannot seem to get marginnotes on the left
hand side — \marginnote[text here] does not seem to work either. I
have consulted the marginnote documentation.

I cannot seem to change the width of the marginnotes. I have tried
marginparwidth with normal margin notes, and that works. But when I
load marginnote, it doesn't. So I have tried, as per the
documentation, to use \edef\marginnotetextwidth{\the\textwidth}. That
just seems to move the horizontal placement of the marginnote, not the
width of the note.

Finally, can I make a custom inset for left-hand-side margin notes? I
will be using both left and right margin notes quite often, so it
would be nice to have the clickable-box that you get with a custom
inset. I am not quite sure how I would do this.


Thank you for considering my questions,

Regards

Jasper

Have you already had a look at sec. 4.3 Margin Notes of the EmbeddedObjects manual that you find 
in LyX's Help menu? I guess what you want is described there.

Looking again at Sec 4.3 of the EmbeddedObjects Manual, I see how to
do the left-hand margin.

However, I still cannot find how to extend the margin text length.

Thanks,

Sorry thanks I have found it.

I am using \setlength{\marginparwidth}{length}, which seems to be working!

Now I just need to find out how to work these custom insets!
