Dear Wolfgang,

thank you for writing back! I cannot use \margindata because it creates 
overlapping notes. Instead, I use Lua to concatenate the notes in one 
line and print them side by side. Moreover, some notes are only relevant 
if they refer to a piece of text that spans multiple lines. Using Lua, I 
can drop the irrelevant notes. However, I would be very happy with a 
solution that uses \margindata!

Best regards
