INSTALLATION
  Run `latex marginfix.ins' and copy the marginfix.sty file into a
  path searched by LaTeX.

DESCRIPTION
  Authors using LaTeX to typeset books with significant margin
  material often run into the problem of long notes running off the
  bottom of the page. A typical workaround is to insert \vshift
  commands by hand, but this is a tedious process that is invalidated
  when pagination changes. Another workaround is memoir's \sidebar
  function, but this can be unsatisfying for short textual notes, and
  standard marginpars cannot be mixed with sidebars. This package
  implements a solution to make marginpars "just work" by keeping a
  list of floating inserts and arranging them intelligently in the
  output routine.

margin­fix – Patch \margin­par to avoid over­full mar­gins

Authors us­ing LaTeX to type­set books with sig­nif­i­cant mar­gin ma­te­rial of­ten run into the prob­lem of long notes run­ning off the bot­tom of the page. A typ­i­cal workaround is to in­sert \vshift com­mands by hand, but this is a te­dious pro­cess that is in­val­i­dated when pag­i­na­tion changes. Another workaround is mem­oir’s \side­bar func­tion, but this can be un­sat­is­fy­ing for short tex­tual notes, and stan­dard margin­pars can­not be mixed with side­bars. This pack­age im­ple­ments a so­lu­tion to make margin­pars “just work” by keep­ing a list of float­ing in­serts and ar­rang­ing them in­tel­li­gently in the out­put rou­tine.
