# Is todonotes compatible with twocolumn?

I'd really like to have my tikz \todo notes in my twocolumn document. When writing on the right column it's fine, but the left column drives it crazy.

I tried to fiddle with the textwidth option but to no avil (e.g. textwidth=\columnwidth-ε and the like). Is there a solution?

p.s. This code goes wrong:

\documentclass[twocolumn]{article}
\usepackage{tikz}
\usepackage{todonotes}
\begin{document}
This is\todo{correct typos} some pretty cool text.
\end{document}

-

\setlength{\marginparwidth}{2cm}

By default fullpage sets all margins to 1 inch. This is slightly larger than the parwidth defined above, so the two don't clash. :) –  qubyte Mar 1 '12 at 23:51
