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.
    please help me to sort out this issue.


    • 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.

    This is super useful! This is exactly what I needed to set the exams for my students where I need them to write handwritten answers. Very easy to customise. Thanks a lot.
