1. For what I see your plans are to split an existing document via minipage and add the notes to the side. It could be interesting to add a notes page similar to what Adobe Acrobat Pro does when printing a document with notes. Like a summary of comments, assuming the document is not to long, you could include an additional page with note blocks per existing page.

• Thanks for your comment. The initial idea was to leave space for taking handwritten notes on a document that I would bring to a meeting or on handouts for a workshop, etc. However, I would keep it flexible enough to fit many possible applications.

Dear Sir,
I am facing difficulty while putting the marks along with question using exam.sty
In this i am able to assign the integer number with \marks{3} it work.
But if i want to use decimal number e.g \marks{3.5} it does not work.

thanks
sarvesh

• Hi Sarvesh,

I wasn’t able to download exam.sty. But there is a document-class exam which allows non-integer marks. I took the sample code from the documentation.

\documentclass[12pt]{exam}
\begin{document}
\begin{questions}
\question[3.5]
Why is there air?
\question[15]
How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck
wood?
\question[10] Compute $\displaystyle\int_0^1 x^2 \, dx$.
\end{questions}
\end{document}
