[NTG-context] NTG voorjaarsbijeenkomst 2015

2015-06-02 Thread Willi Egger
Besten allemaal,


ik wil jullie hiermee eraan herinneren, dat we op 11 juni a.s. de 
ledenvergadering van de NTG gaan houden. 

Datum: 11 juni 2015
Tijd:  11:00 tot 15 :00
Plaats: InspirID, Petrus Driessenstraat 44, 9714 CC Groningen


Naast de ledenvergadering met verkiezingen en een lunch, zullen we ons gaan 
verdiepen in de details van een moderne font…

De stukken voor de jaarvergadering zijn te vinden op het besloten gedeelte van 
ons web-site.

Omdat wij de aantallen deelnemers c.q. lunches aan de beheerster van de lokatie 
moeten doorgeven, vraag ik jullie zich aan te melden tot a.s. zaterdag 6 juni 
bij de secretaris.


Tot volgende week donderdag!

Vriendelijke groeten

Willi Egger
Secretaris NTG

If you are using MkII (that is: if you are running texexec), you should use
\enableregime[utf-8]

If you use LuaTeX, there's no need to enable UTF-8. It's already the default.

 (*) Upgrading with first-setup.sh deleted all the third-party fonts which 
 we had spent months installing.

I'm sorry to hear that.

The idea is to install fonts to
texmf-local
or
texmf-fonts
or
texmf-project
or somewhere else. But the files get removed from texmf,
texmf-context, texmf-modules etc.

I'm sorry that that wasn't clear (or maybe not even mentioned) in the
documentation.

 (*) Installing the context=current installed a beta version of luatex:
 context --version
 mtx-context | current version: 2015.05.24 12:42
 luatex --version
 This is LuaTeX, Version beta-0.80.0 (TeX Live 2015) (rev 5238)

A non-beta version of LuaTeX doesn't exist.

 (*) http://tug.org/pracjourn/2005-2/schmitz/schmitz.pdf (none of the commands 
 texfont, ttf2afm, updmap, come with the latest ConTeXt minimals 2015.05.24 
 12:42) [Is this really the up-to-date documentation on how to install a 
 true-type font?]It does not seem to discuss what to do if all we have is 
 an .otf but no .ttf

The documentation is from 2005 as the URL suggests. So no, it's not
up-to-date. Use LuaTeX instead and you can forget about dirty
workarounds to get the fonts to work.

 (*) Documentation request: typescripts for ttf and otf files which may or 
 may not have bold, italics, etc with fallback-families and Unicode ranges and 
 separate files for Unicode-ranges (e.g., Google Noto fonts).

This is all possible (it might require a bit of work to get everything
set up properly), but you should definitely switch to LuaTeX.

 Are you sure that character encoding in your

 I can cause this error message, but only after
 replacing character encoding in file with ISO
 8859-15.
 
 BTW, your file is in /usr/local. I thought that
 in Unix there was no place like /home :-).
 
 I hope it helps,
 
 
 Pablo

We are on the home stretch now. I added
\enableregime  [utf-8] 
as the first line of my
master file. Theoretically I don't need this for a
MKIV run but so much for theory.

 Everything works. But there is
something wrong with my math code. There is no
horizontal bar between the 1 and the 2.  I guess
I will study The TEXbook some more.

Just FYI, I keep personal stuff and also my
political articles in /home/safe but my
typesetting and index work goes in subdirectories
of:
/usr/local/active/
one for each project.

Thanks for your prompt and useful reply!

Hi John,

It is a good idea to read again The TeXBook, but actually I wonder why should 
TeX put a horizontal line between 1 and 2 in your code? 
What you are typesetting in mathmode is just 8 followed by 1 in exponent 
(uppserscript) and 2 in subscript, therefore there shouldn’t be any fraction 
bar between 1 and 2.

If the font you use has the character, what you want to typeset is the 
character U+00BD for 1/2 or, if you want to use mathmode, either of the 
solutions below (wtach the slight differences between the three versions):

\starttext
$8\tfrac{1}{2} × 11$ inch

$8\frac{1}{2} × 11$ inch

$8{1 \over 2} × 11$ inch

\stoptext

Indeed you can replace $…$ with \math{…}.

Best regards: OK

If you install extra fonts and files, you should put them in

tex/texmf-fonts
tex/texmf-project

as these are left untouched. That has always been the recommendation. 
The other trees will be synchronized in an update and that also includes 
deleting obsolete files.

you can put the fonts in

tex/texmf-fonts/fonts/data/someplace

and run

mtxrun --generate

and then try the selectfont command

 The particular file I'm using at the moment is included as part of the

my suspicion is the following: if there were an updated version it would

[NTG-context] Blank line before placehead=empty

2015-06-02 Thread Kate F
Hi,

I have a document where I'm showing chapter titles in headers, rather
than on the page in the usual place in the body text area.

Using placehead=empty, what causes the blank line before the text? Is
there a way to suppress it?

I see there's no line when specifying placehead=no, but I want the
chapter heading to appear in my TOC, so that's why I'm using
placehead=empty. Or maybe there's another way to add something to the
TOC without showing anything in the document.

\setuphead[chapter][placehead=empty] % has an unwanted blank line
%\setuphead[chapter][placehead=no] % no blank line

\showgrid
\showstruts

\starttext
\startchapter[title={Something}]
cows cows hasselt
\stopchapter
\stoptext

Thank you,

Hi Kate,

as far as I know, placehead=no only affects to the heading, not to the TOC.

At least, this sample works:

\setuphead[chapter][placehead=no]

\showgrid
\showstruts

\starttext
\completecontent
\dorecurse{10}{\startchapter
[title={My Chapter}] cows cows hasselt
\stopchapter}

Or have I misread your message or am I missing something?
