Hello list, i'm trying to understand the \blank command. The following example leaves a blank line between the two lines of text.
\showgrid \starttext A line.\par \blank[line] Another line.\par \stoptext When you add "force" to the blank, the vertical space between the two lines shrinks. You can also add "fixed", but nothing changes. \showgrid \starttext A line.\par \blank[line,force] Another line.\par \stoptext Wolfgang asked about this in 2015(https://www.mail-archive.com/ntg-cont e...@ntg.nl/msg77729.html), but i could not find any answer on the mailing list. The next doubt is about the "disable" option. In the following example, \blank[2*line] wins over \blank[line] because it's bigger, and you get a vertical space of 2 lines between the 2 lines of text. \showgrid \starttext A line.\par \blank[line]\blank[2*line] Another line.\par \stoptext Then add "disable" to the first blank to cancel the next one: \showgrid \starttext A line.\par \blank[line,disable]\blank[2*line] Another line.\par \stoptext I expected a vertical space of 1 line, instead there's none. Why? Conversely, this disables the second \blank, as you would expect: \showgrid \starttext A line.\par \blank[line]\blank[disable]\blank[2*line] Another line.\par \stoptext Best greetings, Massimiliano ___________________________________________________________________________________ If your question is of interest to others as well, please add an entry to the Wiki! maillist : firstname.lastname@example.org / http://www.ntg.nl/mailman/listinfo/ntg-context webpage : http://www.pragma-ade.nl / http://context.aanhet.net archive : https://bitbucket.org/phg/context-mirror/commits/ wiki : http://contextgarden.net ___________________________________________________________________________________
