Is there any way to force todonotes to place comment bubbles only on the left side of the page, or only on the right side of the page? My corporate document template is two-sided, so todonotes puts the bubbles on the right margin for odd-facing pages, and the left margin for even-facing pages. I need to make the PDF viewing window bigger just to see comments on both odd and even pages. Display area on my tiny laptop is a premium.

I've already \reversemarginpar after invoking packages todonotes and geometry, but comment bubbles still show up in both margins.

I tried to force one-sided output using \documentclass[oneside]{corpTemplate}, but I get a message indicating that the corporate template does not permit one-sidedness.

I've posted this to the LaTeX Community.

    That's what I ended up doing -- applying a document template switch that designates the document as one that isn't published. I had to comment out commands that are for documents that are to be published. I will restore them in the final draft, when the comments in the margins are no longer needed. A kluge, for sure, but a solution nevertheless. Who's to say that it is actually more sensible to have a direct todonotes switch?
