Many documentations and textbooks print essential keywords of a paragraph into the margin. Is there any package for this?

Of course it wouldn't be all too complicated to define a custom command based on \marginpar, but you'd think there's already something out there with nice features like automatic index integration.


The marginnote package provides a command that allows to set text in the left or right margin.

\marginnote[Text in left margin]{Text in right margin}

Also some document classes provide special commands to set small notes in the margins.
