You can write everything you want between frame environment into a note command. With the option [itemize] everything you write into the note will look like an itemize list. %\documentclass[notes]{beamer} % print frame + notes \documentclass[notes=only]{beamer} % only notes %\documentclass{beamer} % only frames \title[Your Short Title]{...

Another option is to use the \caption* command from the caption package: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{caption} \begin{document} \begin{figure} \centering \caption{A figure} \rule{1cm}{1cm}% placeholder for `\includegraphics` \caption*{A note} \end{figure} \end{document} If the notes should use separate different formatting than the one used for ...

The preamble should be: \documentclass{beamer} \usepackage{pgfpages} \setbeameroption{show notes on second screen} i.e. pgfpages rather than pdfpages See the Beamer User Guide sections 19.6 and 22.

You can have a look at the todonotes package. It has some very simple yet quite customizable commands to add notes and stuff to your document. There is also a nice feature called listoftodos that lists all the todo fields that you set in the document. Compare the MWE below: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{todonotes} \begin{document} Some text... \todo{...

One basic possibility using TikZ (process using xelatex): \documentclass{article} \usepackage{xparse} \usepackage{fontspec} \setmainfont{Humor Sans} \usepackage{tikz} \usetikzlibrary{shadows} \usepackage{lipsum} \definecolor{myyellow}{RGB}{242,226,149} \NewDocumentCommand\StickyNote{O{6cm}mO{6cm}}{% \begin{tikzpicture} \node[ drop shadow={ shadow xshift=...

Converting my comments above into an answer: In specifying overlay options, you can add the handout:<number> option. For example, \only<1-3| handout:1>{content-1} will print content-1 that appears in frames 1 to 3 as the first page of the handout; \only<4-5| handout:2>{content-2} prints content-2 which appears in frames 4 and 5 as the ...

The floatrow package offers the \floatfoot macro for notes in addition to a float's \caption. \documentclass{article} \usepackage[capposition=top]{floatrow} \begin{document} \begin{figure} % \centering% default with `floatrow` \rule{1cm}{1cm}% placeholder for `\includegraphics` \caption{A figure} \floatfoot{A note} \end{figure} \end{document}

You can use {\raggedright insert notes here \par} after \end{tabular} but before \end{table}: \documentclass{article} \begin{document} \begin{table} \centering \caption{Sample ANOVA table} \begin{tabular}{lllll} \hline \hline Stubhead & \( df \) & \( f \) & \( \eta \) & \( p \) \\ \hline ...

I came up with a quite nice solution I created based on these two questions on file IO: File input and output How can I open a file in “append” mode? Here is the code to put before \begin{document}: % create a new file handle \newwrite\pdfpcnotesfile % open file on \begin{document} \AtBeginDocument{% \immediate\openout\pdfpcnotesfile\jobname.pdfpc\...

If you use Adobe Reader, then there is also pdfcomment. You can run texdoc pdfcomment in your terminal to read the manual. Like todnotes package, this package tries to emulate the commenting functionality found in some word processors. This sample code is taken from the example.tex file provided with the package and some of the things that it can do. \...

To have the legend occupy the same width as the associated graph, one may encase both in a minipage environment, as is done in the following MWE (minimum working example). Note the use of \par at the end of the footnote-sized material. Without the \par directive -- or a trailing blank line, which is the functional equivalent of a paragraph break in Tex -- ...

Yes chemfig is a great tool. But as well as almost every code to picture system the syntax is not trival. Please consider the following example. You can easily see, that chemfig syntax follows a logical and human readable syntax, but will become extremely complex for larger structures. And so far as i can see chemfig is the easiest system for chemical ...

If you just want to write between the lines of text, you probably want to use combination of \raisebox and \rlap. \raisebox basically typesets the argument in a box raised, or lowered over the baseline by its given arguments. You however want TeX to make the box of virtually zero width and zero height. This is done using \rlap and arguments to \raisebox ...

You can define font size for notes with \setbeamerfont{note page}{size=\tiny}, default size is \small.

I don't know if there is a package but I use this command \def\alert#1{\textcolor{red}{#1}} and then I simply type text here \alert{in red} and foo You can improve it to make use of some \marginpar{}.

One option using \tikzmark (since some calculations are performed for the bar placement, the code needs three runs to stabilize). The bar admits (multiple) page breaks: \documentclass{article} \usepackage[a5paper,rmargin=4cm]{geometry} \usepackage{atbegshi} \usepackage{refcount} \usepackage{setspace} \usepackage{tikzpagenodes} \usetikzlibrary{calc} \...

Without an actual example of what your table looks like it is difficult to say whether this solution will work for you. But, you could incorporate each portion within a minipage to obtain the tablenotes besides the table. Here is a before and after comparison: Before: After (with minipages): Notes: I have not been able to figure out how to get the ...

I think the free web-based Overleaf is worth mention. With this tool, all authors can share documents, review, comment and edit. Since it is web-based all documents will be accessible across platforms.

The closest thing I know is frame overlays, in Beamer a frame can have several overlays (when you use \pause), and you can have different notes for each overlay. Now this is not exactly what you are asking for. Maybe you can still use this as a workaround, if there's some way to generate "invisible" overlays just for the purpose of adding more notes pages.

I'm sure the final answer will be using tikzmarks ;-) For what it's worth, here's a simplistic pure TeX solution based on shuffling around some boxes. Edit: Now with pagebreak enabled. \documentclass{article} \usepackage{color} \newdimen\charwd \charwd=1pt \makeatletter \newbox\@tempboxb \newbox\@tempboxc \newbox\@tempboxd \newskip\@tempskipc \...

You could use the help of mdframed and expecially its options singleextra, firstextra, secondextra and middleextra. The different options allow you to have different styles for a frame that's on a single page and a frame that is broken over two or more pages. When mdframed is used with framemethod=tikz you have access to the corners of a frame. The node on ...

You can use the package enumitem and define a list that you can use for notes such as the following: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{enumitem} \newlist{notes}{enumerate}{1} \setlist[notes]{label=Note: ,leftmargin=*} \begin{document} Duis porttitor nisi et orci pellentesque feugiat. Aenean id turpis vel purus tincidunt sodales. Class aptent taciti ...

I don't know how to do it with threeparttablex, but it seems that the old threeparttable should be sufficient: the former is for longtable and you don't seem to be using longtabu (I'm afraid that one should rewrite threeparttablex for using the longtabu environment). \documentclass{article} \usepackage{booktabs} \usepackage{tabu} \usepackage{threeparttable} ...

It is possible to insert additional material in a bbl generated by biber/BibLaTX combination. You can add \field{mynote}{<TEXT OF THE NOTE>} in the appropriate entries. The one has to give the instruction to print it. A possible way to insert at the end of a bibenty (and in bold) is: \DeclareFieldFormat{mynote}{\textbf{#1}} \AtEveryBibitem{ \...

Another option is the rather new fixmetodonotes package. It is much more lightweight than \todonotes by using \marginpar instead of tikz, but contains many of its features, plus some more: Inline and margin placement Listing all notes through \listofnote Flexible customization Automatic placement of a DRAFT watermark on any page that contains notes (can be ...

ChemFig is a great package but I don't believe that you'll gain much in time if you create your schemes with it rather than with ChemDraw. Once you know you're way around ChemFig you're just as fast or slow with it than with ChemDraw (supposing you know your way around that, too), at least that's my experience. There are other points you should consider: ...

You can redefine the internal \beamer@setupnote command to use an itemize environment instead of the default enumerate environment: \documentclass{beamer} \setbeameroption{show notes} \makeatletter \def\beamer@setupnote{% \gdef\beamer@notesactions{% \beamer@outsideframenote{% \beamer@atbeginnote% \beamer@notes% \ifx\beamer@noteitems\...

I've just found another solution. \begin{frame}{Slide} \Huge This is slide \end{frame} \note{\Huge Note 1} \newpage \note{\Huge Note 2}

threeparttable defines \tnote so that the symbol it typesets doesn't contribute to the cell's width, and that's the meaning of \TPToverlap. I suggest to leave \tnote as it is (for notes appearing at the end of a cell's text) and to define \newcommand{\mtnote}[1]{\textsuperscript{\TPTtagStyle{#1}}} for "middle notes".
