# scrbook: remove margin notes for index entries [closed]

I'm using the scrbook class. I don't like the way that my index entries are included as margin notes. How can I prevent the index entries from being shown in the margins? I consulted the KOMA-Script manual but was unable to find anything that addresses this issue.

Sample code follows:

\documentclass[letterpaper,openright,12pt,chapterprefix=true,index=totoc]{scrbook}
\usepackage[english]{babel}
\usepackage{makeidx,showidx}
\title{The Title}
\author{The Author}
\date{}
\makeindex
\begin{document}
\frontmatter
\pagenumbering{roman}
\tableofcontents
\chapter*{Preface}
Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit.
\mainmatter
\pagenumbering{arabic}
\chapter{The Chapter Name}
Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit.
\index{Lorem ipsum!dolor sit amet}
Sed a tellus augue. Phasellus ut ultrices velit.
\index{Sed a tellus!augue}
\backmatter
\printindex
\end{document}

Welcome to TeX.SE. It is the \usepackage{showidx} that is placing the index entries in the margin, not the scrbook class. So removing the showidx from the list of packages will remove the margin notes for index enteries. – Peter Grill Jun 19 '13 at 0:12
