I want to construct a document with short notes in the left margin summarizing the content of the paragraph to the right.  I know I can make it look that way using columns but I'd like to have the marginal comments linked to the paragraph to make editing easier. Thanks

    You don't want to use Comments?

     

    Menu > Insert > Comment

     

    Or insert Layout Breaks with dual columns to divide the text horizontally.

    Heather,

     

    Use can use Comments in regular (non-table) text, and print them in the margins.

    I wish I could see what I type. I'm really good at finding the errors of others - if only that would apply to my own posts...

    I have the same problem, Jerrold! And so does Peter but he doesn't know it.

    I blame my problems on my fingers. My brain tells them what to type but they just won't do it. It would be a big help if "check spelling while you type" worked in these Jive reply boxes.

    I blame the latest keyboards and OSX. They seem to drop letters all the time.

    I stayed with Safari 5.0.5 until last saturday for 2 reasons. One was that the spell check in the jive reply boxes still worked with that version. Second that didn't have to sign in to the forum many times a day which I have to with this version, 5.1.7. I had to upgrade due to some streaming video gave me problems lately which resolved by upgrading the browser.

    Contenta of this discussion, which has nothng to do with the OP's question, is that we are perfect but the technical devices are failing us
