# Direc­tory macros/latex/contrib/showlabels

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
[bitbucket.org](https://bitbucket.org/nxg/showlabels).  This site
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.
