### Creating new kinds of notes

By default, `fixmetodonotes` provides three kinds of notes: `FIXME`, `TODO` and

It is possible to add declare new kinds of notes using the `\defnote`
command. Notes can be declared as _margin_ or _inline_ notes. It is also
possible to specify new ways to mark the text.

To define a new kind of note called `REMOVE` that displays a margin note
and crosses out the text, use

### Automatic "DRAFT" watermark

`fixmetodonotes` will add a "DRAFT" watermark to any page that has at least
one notes.

When all the notes are removed from a page, the watermark will not be produced
at all. This means that it is possible to leave `fixmetodonotes` enabled even
in final versions of the documents.

Use the `nowatermark` option to disable all watermarks.
