Re: [NTG-context] Lettrine in ConTeXt

2005-05-30 Thread Taco Hoekwater


The problem is that FontHook has to redefine the font synonym
'LettrineFont'. You have to do it like this:

  \unexpanded\def\myfonthook
{\definefontsynonym[LettrineFont][SerifBold]}

  \setuplettrine[Lines=3,TextFont=\it,
FontHook=\myfonthook,
Findent=0pt,Nindent=0pt]

Greetings, Taco

Re: [NTG-context] List of figures with shorter captions

2005-05-30 Thread Michael Fuchs
Hi!

You can use the \nolist{} command within the caption for parts, that shouldn't 
go in the list of figures:

f.ex:

 \placefigure [here][fig:Res_FlussSkalierungsfaktor]
{This is a caption. \nolist{This part of the caption will not be
  listed in the list of figures.}}
{\externalfigure[ResDat32_PhiProton2][width=100mm]}

Instead the part within \nolist will be replaced by ... (3 dots).
If you want to change this default behaviour use the limittext-option as 
shown in the following example.

\placelistoffigures[before=\blank,criterium=all,limittext={}]


Best Regards

Michael

 Hello all,

 I'm busy with writing a paper for university and the teachers ordered me
 to include a List of Figures. So now I'm using \completelistoffigures to get
 the list of figures.

 However, my captions with the figures are quite long so I was wondering if
 it's possible to let ConTeXt write a different text to the List of Figures.
 I thought something similar was possible with the Table of Contents and the
 \chapter command, but I cannot remember how...maybe I imagined.

 So is it possible to write a different text to the LoF? I use
 \placefigure[here]{This is my very long caption} {\externalfigure[myfigure]}
 to place my figures in the text.

 I've experimented with using \writetolist[figure]{1}{short caption} to write
 a text to the LoF, but there are some problems with that method. (the figure
 can be placed on a different page than the \writetolist, and I'll need a way
 to stop ConTeXt writing the caption text to the list as well).

 Any ideas?

 My best,
 Tim

[NTG-context] Fleurons

2005-05-30 Thread Keith McKay
Dear All

I am in the process of learning the wonders of Context and enjoying the
challenge.My Context is the stand alone version for Windows which I
downloaded from the Pragma site.  I'm getting used to using the Scite editor
although it was a little difficult in the beginning.  

Just now I'm putting together some short stories and am having fun playing
about with layout and using different kinds of fonts. Also I'm reading 'The
Elements of Typographic Style' by Robert Bringhurst which is absolutely
superb!  I would never have thought that a book on typography would be so
easy to read.  In Bringhurst's book he mentions fleurons - A horticultural
dingbat which I would like to access.  I have looked through the Context
manuals but with no success.  Could someone give me some hints?

Thanks

[NTG-context] placing figures left with no wrap

2005-05-30 Thread Paul Tremblay
How can I place a figure to the left of the page *without* having any
text wrap around it? 

If I use:

\placefigure[here]{{\bf
figure 1.1: }Woolworth store in Lexington}{\externalfigure[WWORIG
ref]}

I get a graphic that is centered. I want to push the graphic to the
left of the page. 

The only way I know how to achive this right now is with:

externalfigure[WWORIG ref]
\par
{\bf figure 1.1:} Woolworth store in Lexington
\par

But this method probably won't keep my captions and graphics together.
If the graphic is placed at the bottom of the page, my caption will
appear on the next page.

Do I need to save the graphic as a buffer and then place the buffer? I
coudln't find any directions on how to use buffer, though I swear I
saw it on the wiki.

Thanks

Paul

2005-05-30 Thread Paul Tremblay
Thanks. I discovered that a bit ago and was just about to post what I
found out. 

Now, I don't suppose there is any way to actually fine-tune the
placement? I asked this question about two months ago and since I
didn't get a response figured there was no way.

For example, I would like to indent the figures about 5 cm from the
left margin.

 Have a look at my thread :

   http://www.ntg.nl/pipermail/ntg-context/2005/010976.html

Which boils down to:
--
\setuphead
[chapter]
[textcommand=\MyChapterTextCommand,
 numbercommand=\MyChapterNumberCommand]

\def\MyChapterNumberCommand#1{} % hide chapter number

\def\MyChapterTextCommand#1%
{\externalfigure[(some graphic reference)]}

- 
The graphic reference was
chapter-\currentheadnumber

That almost does it. Thanks! But I want to be able to specify the graphic at
the point where the section/chapter/whatever is created. In plain pdftex there
is a facility for retrieving the last graphic added
(\pdflastximage). Does Context have an analogous command? 

Or I can just redefine  \MyChapterTextCommand at each instance. That is
more flexible than renaming graphics with chapter numbers.

I do a newsletter where the chapter called Rainbow Bridge
always has the same graphic, but that chapter doesn't always
occur in the same spot in the sequence.

[NTG-context] force columns smaller in Table

2005-05-30 Thread Paul Tremblay
Is there a way to force colums to be narrower than the default in the
Table (basic) table environment? 

The first line of my column is:

Amount spent on store modernization by the chains

The columns underneath are all single numbers, meaning they have huges
spaces to the right:

year  Amount spent on store modernization by the chains
===   =

1933  33,000,000
1934  37,000,000

Do I have to use the more sophisticated TABLE module? (I hope not,
because I have already laid out things with Table!)

Thanks
