[NTG-context] Support bei Einstieg in ConText

2003-09-26 Thread ml-context
Nach langem Winword-Leiden habe ich mich nun entschlossen 
für längere Texte auf ConTeXt umzusteigen.
Aus Zeitgründen überlege ich, mir für den Umstieg Unterstützung zu leisten.
Bevor ich bei uns an der FH Studenten dafür anspreche, versuche ich es hier über das 
Forum.

Wer ist interessiert, gegen finanzielle Unterstützung bei folgenden Aufgaben zu 
leisten?

- Unterstützung bei der Einrichtung einer TeX/ConTeXt-Umgebung
- Beraten beim Layout für ein längeres Dokument
- Bestehende Winword-Texte Schulungsunterlagen konvertieren und formatieren
- Evtl. beraten bei Auswahl einer Digitaldruckerei 

Gruß
Jörg

this is very sensible. Welcome to ConTeXt. But you have to realize
that this mailinglist is read by many people around this world and
mainly in english. There is no german mailinglist especially for
ConTeXt, but you could alos post your questions on tex-d-l
mailinglist, which is about TeX in general.


[for those who are interested: The rest of the original posting was
about support request for layout, converting documents, etc.]

did you define the block?

\defineblock[homework]
\setupblock[homework][file=student]

test

\stoptext

normally, you will put the definitions in a shared environment

I try it again in english:

I stopped a long suffer with Winword - and want to write/print longer documents with 
Context now.

Since I don\'t have enough time do learn Context
properly at this moment - but need some documents printed for students I ask you for 
some payed support: 

- Install a Context Environment
- tips for layouting my documents
- converting some of my existing winword-documents to context (I think there will be a 
lot of handwork for you)
- tips and suggestions: \digital-printer-company\ (Digitaldruck-Firma) and how to 
work together with them.


I am german and have to use \deutsche Umlaute\ - therefore I think it will be the 
best to get support from a german speaking person.

[NTG-context] Please: \adaptlayout[*here*][height=...] needed!

2003-09-26 Thread Steffen Wolfrum
Hi,

I really need a way to enlarge some certain pages.

Because the pagenumbering is not fixed yet
I cannot use \adaptlayout[71,82][...] in the preamble.

What's the command to place \adaptlayout (or something similar)
right at that position in the text
where the page needs to be larger?

Something like \enlargethispage{15pt}.


Again, thank you for your help,

Steffen

Dear colisters,
is there a way to tel Context to be dumb about pagebreaks? I mean to say 
fill every page with the exact same number of lines, no matter what, 
regardless of clubs, widows, women and children? Here's my setup:
\setuplayout[lines=17,footer=0.7cm]
\starttext
\clubpenalty=0
\widowpenalty=0
Nevertheless, some pages are 1 or even three lines shorter than the rest 
(there are no tables, floats, pictures etc.). Can this be prevented?
  \def\defaultwidowpenalty{0}
  \def\defaultclubpenalty{0}
or maybe:

  setuplayout[grid=yes]

or in the beta i just posted:

\startsetups [NeverMind]

  \setups[*reset]

  \widowpenalty\zerocount
  \clubpenalty \zerocount
\stopsetups

\setuplayout[setups=NeverMind]

Have a look into my german beginner's tutorial at
http://www.fiee.net/texnique/, that is,
http://www.ramm.ch/fiee/texnique/?menu=0-1lang=de
Regarding layout: Buy a good book, e.g.:
minimal: Gorbach, Textgestaltung am PC und Mac. Ravensburg 1995 (out of 
print, but used available at amazon)
optimal: Willberg/Forssmann, Lesetypographie. Mainz 1996

If you know what you want, ask again.

Regarding digital printshop: It depends on your wishes and a bit on 
your location.

Hallo Jrg

Gerne wrde ich mehr ber dieses Vorhaben wissen.
Untersttzung bieten, Mmithilfe bei der Konvertierung ist kein Problem.
Was ich wahrscheinlich nicht kann, ist Ihnen helfen an eine Digitale
Druckerei. Doch nehme ich an, dass sich schon Leute auf dierser Liste
befinden, die uns dabei untersttzen knnen.

Selber bin ich Freiberufler. Ich arbeite ausschliesslich mit Context. Meine
Erfahrung habe ich in den letzten vier Jahren aufgebaut, bin beteiligt and
der Herausgabe von Bchern.

Bitte rufen Sie mich doch an.

Thanks! This command alleviated the problem without eliminating all the 
shorter pages. \setuplayout[grid=yes] actually made it a lot worse; 
almost every page was several lines short. I suspect it might have 
something to with itemizations (of which there are quite a few); this 
seems to confuse (Con)TeX(t).
