Taking Notes

Hi Guys! I’m wondering if it is possible to take notes on the side or a designated area of the libre office app.
Exemple: I’m writing an essay and (not related to anything in the essay in particular) I put mind notes down on the left or right side of the page.
Thank you very much.

Write with love

Maybe you could think of using Insert>Comment.

However, comments are anchored to the position of the cursor at time of insertion. If you erase the range containing the anchor, the comment also vanishes. Comments are rather intended for commenting (as their name implies) a sentence or argument when collaboratively editing a document.

With the power of current PCs, your best option is probably;

  • either to open another document to put down your notes, so that you can easily retrieve them and sort them in a relevant manner,

  • or to open a small footprint editor like KWrite, gedit, emacs, vi or NotePad and eventually several windows to keep some order and structure in your notes.
