Todo package by default can display todo notes either as a superscript or as a marginpar (the package has appropriate options). Is there a way to display todo notes as normal text (without patching the package itself)?

You can put the following in your preamble after loading the package.


This will put a space between the To Do text and what it is next to.

This didn't work in lyx 1.6.5. Started giving errors instead. – apoorv020 Apr 29 '11 at 9:45
@apoorv The solution still works in regular latex. If you make a minimal document in Lyx and test it, and you still get errors, you should make a new question (referencing this one) and explain what the error is. – Alan Munn Apr 29 '11 at 11:00
