Perhaps my title isn't the most accurate, but it's the best I could come up with.
I sometimes write lessons out very specifically, almost to the level of a textbook. In particular, I do this when I'm leaving work for my students to do when I have to be out for the day. In these cases, I usually write out several examples, very specifically and meticulously worked out. I've been doing this using Word and MathType. I'll write the math out in MathType, and then add a text box out to the right explaining the steps as they go along.
I'd like to do the same in Mathematica. I have discovered the "align with equals sign" capability, which seems the best to me for someone to follow the steps along. What I'm having trouble with is getting a text box to overlay the notebook where I can position it to the right of the worked out mathematics. The program seems to not want these things to exist side-by-side (and I mean literally next to each other on the page as viewed).
Can anyone point me to a resource that may explain how to do this, or give a helpful hint or two?
Thanks, as always.
