rev.3b (see notes below)

The parnotes package adds a new note type, \parnote. Parnotes are set as normal, running paragraphs and may be placed two ways: (1) automatically, at the end of the paragraph, or (2) manually, using the \parnotes command.

To place parnotes automatically after every paragraph, use the autopn environment:



If environments are used within autopn, another autopn environment must be nested within them. To place notes elsewhere, use the \parnotes command.

For more details, read the project documentation in parnotes.pdf.


The development repository and the bug tracker for this package are hosted on GitHub but see notes below.

Small extensions in 2019 by Frank Mittelbach:

  • option reset (alias for restart to match other packages)
  • option alph (for alph style notes instead of arabic)
  • option symbol (for fnsymbol style notes)

The documentation has been changed use freely available fonts so that it can be typeset by everybody (the previsous release used commercial fonts).
