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

Version @VersionX@, @RELEASEDATE@,

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