the dialog, the setting is restored to one.
There was an earlier discussion of this issue
here, and it seemed then to be working, so this
is a regression.

As far as I can see, hiding margin notes doesn't work.
This is true both for the Doc Format dialog, and

Note lost

I entered a margin note, specified that it be
hidden, and typeset it. The note appeared,
which prompted the comment above regarding
note hiding. But more seriously, when I went
back to the editor (Normal view) the note
had disappeared. Changing the text and
previewing again showed that the note
was still there: it just seemed not to be visible
(hence, editable) in Normal view. I looked, and under
View, both "Footnotes" and "Other Notes"
were checked. In Source view the note was there.
But to have notes disappear from the standard
editing environment is obviously a problem.


I just tried the 2-column experiment on a second windows
computer, and it seems to be working. I don't know why
the first case didn't work (or if it still doesn't).
