# \setupinmargin

## Syntax

 \setupinmargin[...][...,...=...,...] [...] left right number location flushleft flushright both style normal bold slanted boldslanted type cap small... command before command after command align inner outer left right middle normal no yes line number distance dimension separator text width dimension distance dimension stack yes no [...,...=...,...] see \setupframed

## Description

Stack option is used to emulate LaTeX's marginpars (they're considered floats, hence the resulting margin notes do not overlap).

The first bracket can be used to provide different setups for different margin text types. It defines which type of text the following parameters apply to. So the following code defines that any text placed in the margin using `\inright{...}` will be slanted:

```\setupinmargin[right][style=slanted]
```

The previous code does not alter the location of the `\inmargin` command. To do that you would use:

```\setupinmargin[location=right,style=slanted]
```

## Example

```% For example:
\setupinmargin[style=slanted]

\starttext

This is an example of a simple margin note set in the slanted font
of the document. If used correctly, the note \inmargin{Here is a
simple margin note.} should print on the side with the command
\type {\inmargin} placed in the text. You will of course want to

\stoptext
```
