[NTG-context] Renaming spot colours

2005-03-10 Thread Duncan Hothersall
More questions! I'm using black plus one spot colour in a document, and I include PDF images generated in an external program (CorelDraw) which use the same spot colour. In the images the color is called 'PANTONE 294 CV', but I can't use that name for my colour in ConTeXT because names can't

Hi Adam! Thank you for your quick answer. But somehow the combination of backslash and space \ doesn't work for me at the moment. I already tried that before with no effect and tried again after your mail. I also tried \cMeter to check if it is dependent on the unit itself. Maybe it is

Hi Patrick! I want ConTeXt to produce the line break after the \EVolt command. The unit and following word together are extending the textwidth. Put TeX doesn't do the linebreak after the unit. Even using this \ macro doesn't have an effect on this behaviour! Michael -Ursprüngliche
