The LaTeX showkeys package

Version: 3.x, 4.x, 5.x - Scientific WorkPlace & Scientific Word

The showkeys package prints the keys for each label, cross-reference, page reference, citation, and bibliography item in your draft document. The package prints keys for labels and bibliography items in small boxes in the margin, keys for cross-references, page references and citations appear where they occur, in small type elevated above the line. The package simplifies management of keys while documents are in development.

Besides adding the package to your document, no action is required to use showkeys. However, the package options include displaying reference and citation labels and showing labels in color. When you're ready to print the final copy of your document, choose the final option to suppress the action of the package or remove the package altogether. The package works with the fleqn option, AMS-LaTeX packages, and the varioref, natbib, and harvard packages. The showkeys package is installed in the TCITeX/TeX/LaTeX/required/tools directory as part of the Standard LaTeX Tools Bundle.
