Re: [NTG-context] Re: Disable Metapost rendering?

2004-07-25 Thread Sebastian Sturm
Hi,
that sounds very promising - especially --automp, since I don't really 
want to change my ConTeXt script everytime I changed a MP figure. 
Including --automp in my script file, however, didn't stop ConTeXt from 
recalculating my MP figures every time I typeset the document, even 
though I hadn't changed them in the meantime. I couldn't find anything 
about automp in the TeXExec manual, but the --help option tells me that 
automp causes it to render mp pictures only if needed. So how does it 
determine whether a recalculation is necessary or not? Is it a problem 
if my figures rely on the randomizers, like uniformdeviate()?

Best regards,
Sebastian Sturm

 Hello Mats,
 I agree with you: ConTeXt is certainly superior to LaTeX, but 
 sometimes, I know how to do a special thing in LaTeX, but not 
 in ConTeXt. Often I don't know, if a special feature is 
 already there but undocumented, or not. Sometimes, I find a 
 sort of workaround to get some LaTeX behaviour, for example 
 \flushbottom. For beginners there is the document 
 http://www.berenddeboer.net/tex/LaTeX2ConTeXt. pdf by Berend 
 de Boer. It would be nice, to have something 
 like this for advanced topics, such as varioref or lettrine. 
 These special LaTeX to ConTeXt examples can then be added 
 to the ConTeXt-wiki: http://contextgarden.net/From_LaTeX_to_ConTeXt
 Cheers, Peter

Thanks for the info.

Having looked more closely at this, I guess it now stands between
learning LaTeX and the memoir class, or learning ConTeXt. There are
things that talk in favour for both these roadmaps, but I have not
decided yet. 

One of the issues is how to solve a problem in ConTeXt if it suddenly
becomes clear this or that feature is not implemented. 

Best regards,
Mats Broberg

Yes, I eventually found it in that manual - sorry for using bandwidth
for RTFM issues... :)

[NTG-context] Strange error ...

2004-07-25 Thread Willi Egger
Hi,
I got a simple drawing madeup in Metapost, which is then compiled into a 
pdf file with context.
Now that I want to include this graphic in a text I stumble over the 
following:

pdfeTeXk, Version 3.141592-1.11a-2.1 (Web2c 7.5.2)
ConTeXt  ver: 2004.6.30  fmt: 2004.7.21
Error: PDF version 1.5 -- xpdf supports version 1.4 (continuing anyway)
Error (0): PDF file is damaged - attempting to reconstruct xref table...
Error: Couldn't find trailer dictionary
Error: Couldn't read xref table
subsubject : - De tekst op het Gabarit
Error: pdfetex.exe (file ./gabarit.pdf): xpdf: reading PDF image failed
 == Fatal error occurred, the output PDF file is not finished!
Does anybody have a clue what happens?
Kind regards Willi
