Useful notes for some of my answers:

How do you accept an answer?](http://meta.tex.stackexchange.com/q/1852/3954)

@user22986 That should be a follow-up question, since it's not directly related to the issue discussed here. Please, feel free to open a fresh new question with this new requirement and providing all relevant information (for example, hoe are you producing doublespacing in your document?).

comment Side notes marking multiple lines of text
