Showlabels
==========

Put the names of \labels and other commands into the margins of a draft
document.

Version 1.8, 2016 June 9, http://purl.org/nxg/dist/showlabels.

This class option helps you keep track of all the labels in your
documents, by putting the name of the new label into the margin
whenever either the \label command is used, or an equation is
automatically numbered. It is compatible with the amsmath and hyperref
packages.

It is similar to, but does a little more than, the showkeys package.

You invoke this package with the command \usepackage{showlabels} in the
preamble. You can control where the labels appear -- in the margins or
in the interline gaps -- and you can change the appearance of the
formatted labels to some extent.

As well, you can have the arguments to other commands besides \label
displayed. This is fairly obviously useful for the \cite command, but
it can be useful for \ref or \begin as well.

The source code for the package is maintained at

includes an issue tracker, where you can report bugs (or just mail me).

## showlabels – Show label commands in the margin

This package helps you keep track of all the labels you define, by putting the name of new labels into the margin whenever the \label command is used.

The package allows you to do the same thing for other commands. The only one for which this is obviously useful is the \cite command, but it's easy to do it for others, such as the \ref or \begin commands.
