Hi,

here is an example with TikZ.

  1. \documentclass{article}
  2. \usepackage{blindtext}
  3. \usepackage{tikz}
  4. \usetikzlibrary{calc}
  5. \begin{document}
  6. \tikz[remember picture, overlay]
  7. \node [rotate=90] at ($(current page.west)+(1,0)$)
  8. {Text in the left margin};
  9. \blindtext
  10. \end{document}


  • the current page node is used for positioning, I took the west side
    remember picture, overlay are options for placing TikZ code in the background of the page
  • I used the calc library syntax ($(current page.west)+(1,0)$) to move (1,0) in (x,y) direction.

It needs to be compiled two times for correct positioning.
