In regular LaTeX, how could I remove the space reserved for sidenotes on pages that don't have any margin notes?

Issue: Just trying to use the extra space if possible.

I am trying to do this with either \marginnote or \marginpar.

Although I would prefer to have the sidenotes 'inset', right now I am just trying to do it the traditional way. The "inset" approach I have tried uses another question's\wrapfig approach, but "weirdness" happens when notes are close to the bottom of the page, which seems to be a known/accepted issue.

  • it would be possible in luatex (and with a lot of lua to re-implement the linebreaking rules) but normally this isn't possible: tex breaks the paragraph in to lines before considering page breaking, so you can not change the line width at a page break. Oct 12, 2019 at 8:01

  • I took out the references to Lua in my question. That way, someone else can post that question without it being a duplicate. Thanks again. Oct 12, 2019 at 8:16
