I too faced this problem. The solution was to define a paragraph style with
a frame that put the text in the margin.

This is what the frame part of one of my Word styles looks like:

Lock anchor

Horizontal: Left
Relative to: Page
Vertical: 0 cm
Relative to: Paragraph
Distance From Text:

Horizontal: 0.3 cm
Vertical: 0.3 cm
Width: Exactly 4.5 cm
Wrap Around "

I'm afraid you have to tinker to get it the way you want it.
