I would expect this question to have already been answered, but I could not find an answer on point, so I am looking for thoughts and suggestions. The problem is as follows:
I have a document which I would like to share with a number of individuals for them to write in their comments. I would like to shrink the width of the page or text line, and then add an area on the right. An example would be:
Phasellus tempor! Scelerisque ________________________ platea mattis sit, lorem sed. ________________________ Pid, cursus sit platea quis eu, ________________________ sociis urna turpis adipiscing? ________________________ In ac, habitasse, vel lundium. ________________________ Porttitor? Tincidunt sociis, ut ________________________ dapibus ultricies a. Mid duis cum ________________________ in pid! Lacus. Parturient cum ________________________ Elementum tincidunt! Dolor urna, ________________________ sed eu, nascetur ut! Ultrices auctor, ________________________ cras pellentesque parturient placerat ________________________ rhoncus ac turpis hac, placerat vut. ________________________
My first inclination is to use
marginpar, but I wanted to see if there were other, preferable options.
As seen in the example, my preference would be to have comment lines corresponding to paragraphs i.e. where there is no text on the left, there needn't be space for comments on the right.
I would also like to be able to turn off this area for leaving comment at the flip of a switch, so to speak i.e. return the margin widths/etc to normal and not add the lines. I do not expect this would be too difficult.
Incidentally, I am using the
lineno packages with
memoir, so I would like a solution that does not break their functionality.
