[NTG-context] Palatino?

2005-03-11 Thread Thomas A . Schmitz
Hi gang,
I have a problem on my system with the Palatino font. In type-enc, it's 
mapped to

\definefontsynonym [Palatino] [\typescriptthree-uplr8a]  
[encoding=\typescriptthree]

However, on my system (Gerben Wierda's installation), there is no 
texnansi- or EC- or whatever-uplr8a. Palatino works flawlessly with 
LaTeX, mapped to pplr8t, and of course, it works with ConTeXt if I 
create the tfms myself with texfont, but I thought there was some 
default support for Palatino. Am I missing something?

Best

Yes go to the garden and search for palatino. You'll find:

And, IIRC, the \defaultencoding most appropriate for gwTeX, is 8r.

Hi Patrick!

Here is an example that shows the problem. I created it using

german hyphenation.

I just saw that you also fought with the unknown

I read and tried all the solutions that Hans and you found out up to now.

But as soon as I set
\enablemode[activecolon] \usemodule[tryout]
in my local cont-sys.tex I am back to 8 runs 
again (either with Patrick's patch or with your

Do you experience the same (or did I use the wrong .profile here on Mac)?
This would mean that, when using ffr, we either 
have to ignore all this unknown reference outputs 
or fall back to 8 runs :o(

Or does someone already has a solution covering both bugs?

 But if the heading should be set in general in a bold face what do I

 I guess something (next to serif, sans, mono, ...) like serifbold

 I'm a bit confused why you're not using \em in this situation, as it
 adapts to both bold and roman contexts. If you dislike that it defaults
 to slanted, then there's:
 \setupbodyfontenvironment[default][em=italic]
 {\bf Hello \em World} Hello \em World
 But if you want to follow the path of defining your own, adaptive
 switches, then you could look at these goodies already defined in font-ini:
 %D \macros
 %D   {emphbf,emphit,emphsl,emphtf}
 %D
 %D The next emphasis alternatives are for \THANH. They adapt
 %D their style as good as possible.
 \def\emphbf{\groupedcommand{\bf\def\emphit{\bi}\def\emphsl{\bs}}{}}
 \def\emphit{\groupedcommand{\it\def\emphbf{\bi}\def\emphsl{\sl}}{}}

 \def\emphtf{\groupedcommand{\tf\def\e
 mphbf{\bf}\def\emphit{\it}\def\emphsl{\sl}}
 {}}

Right. I can use \em.
But my workflow of using ConTeXt is typesetting already finished 
books (.doc-files). And so I would like to change the text as 
little as possible and instead use an suitable set of typescript and 
setup environment.

That's why I thought I'd need a mysans (or \myrm) defined in the 
typescript to be used in Taco's full-blown bodyfont switch as 
described above:

   \def\SectionStyle{%
 \switchtobodyfont[myrm,20pt]
 \setupinterlinespace[line=30pt]
   }

In fact, this is something I would like to have also for other

or

\listavailablefamilyfonts [] ...

and another to check whether  a font is properly
installed (that is, whether it has \bf, \it,
\sc, math, etc), like:

\checkfont [fontname]

you suggested, but still ...

[NTG-context] xecontext/bibtex issue ?

2005-03-11 Thread Mark Smith

I suppose that, as usual, I am missing something obvious or simple. However, 
AFAICS it hasn't been discussed recently and isn't mentioned on the XeTeX wiki 
pages, so...

What is the procedure for invoking bibtex as part of a XeConTeXt process ? I 
can't get this to work.

If I run:

texexec --xtx myInputFile

first, then texexec stops after generating the xdv. This *always* happens with 
any input file containing citations, but *never* for input files w/o citations.

(I'm assuming that texexec expects bibtex processing before generating a pdf 
since the xdv is full of unknown refs ? )

The problem is that bibtex can't read the .aux file that is generated by 
xextex. (This is a general case for all of my test files, all of which run fine 
as vanilla LaTeX and ConTeXt variants (haven't tried XeLaTeX, but don't need it 
anyway).)

I can't run bibtex on my input file first obviously.

Do I need to do something (seemingly crazy) like this:

1. context
2. bibtex
3. [modify input file preamble]
4. xecontext

Or maybe there is a custom bibtex command for such situations ?

?

wtia,

mark.

Thanks very much for responding Peter! Interesting behaviour - the above

But in any case - did you get a functioning PDF file when you used the 
above definition? Despite the fact that ConTeXt completes its run, I get 
a broken file with your definition. Maybe this is because I am using 
multiple tints of the spot? My color defs look like this:

\setupcolors[rgb=no,cmyk=no,spot=yes,state=start]

\definecolor[IFSblueheadertint][{PANTONE 294CV}][p=.12]
\definecolor[IFSbluetabletint][{PANTONE 294CV}][p=.15]
As I say, even with this definition (missing the final space) the PDF 
result won't open in Acrobat (colour space error). Does your open?

Hmm... Interesting. In preparing a short and highly sanitized file *with* 
citations, I find that the problem no longer exists. Jumped the gun with the 
assumption about bibtex.

I have three files. They all started out as LaTeX articles. Each could be 
processed w/o problems:

latex
bibtex
latex
latex

I then made the necessary modifications to generate a ConTeXt version of each 
file and:

context
bibtex
context

also ran w/o problems.

However, with the minimum necessary modifications to the preamble:

xecontext

...would stop after generating the xdv and bibtex would not read the .aux.

I found that removing all of the paragraphs and elements containing citations 
enabled all three files to be processed to pdf via xetex.

Now, having made a sanitized and very short version of one of the three files, 
but leaving a small number of citations in place, I find that:

xecontext
bibtex
xecontext

...runs fine as expected.

I've got my work cut out to find the problem. Any tips about what I might look 
for ?

Could it be associated with particular environments or characters ?

mark.

So, shouldn't contexing with Helvetica work just out-of-the-box, as 
Patrick said?

This is probably not satisfying, because you probably want to get new

you could use (or expand to):
 b\low{off}

There are come commercial Acrobat plugins that can map/change spot

Otherwise you could change the color in an EPS (and distill that again).
But if you have access to the original CDR files you should simply

Sorry for the too long example. I wasn't sure what caused the

Re: [NTG-context] Initial Font Installation Question (Mac)

2005-03-11 Thread David Wooten
Greetings ConTeXters
I'm back to ask another question:
After an initial successful installation of the purchased fonts, I've 
come to find that there is a serious quirk. That is, when I try to use 
any special glyph, be it an accented character of any kind, or e.g. an 
eth. The result of something like \a (or \{a}) is _a_ without the 
diacritic. Curiously (to me, at least:), if I enter the actual glyph: 
, it gives me the character I needbut only for a few runs! After 
adding a couple more of such alternative glyphs, it starts to show 
gibberish. Some trials evince an ff-ligature as the diacritic. Errors 
in the mapping/virtual font/?

Again I hope to save myself some time by asking to be pointed in the 
right direction, as my initial searches haven't really helped.

Just a quick reply:
having the afm is already very good. The file without an extension
looks suspiciously like a Mac font resource. Can you try running the
utility fondu on it (from the command line)? That will usually
produce the pfbs (very likely, there's more than one: roman, italics,
bold ...). Texfont, btw, can equally well work with truetype fonts, so
if you have a proper tryetype font with extension .ttf. you might as
well use this. texfont will produce a map entry that you will have to
modify a bit (so it points to a .ttf instead of the default .pfb), but
that's not too difficult. As to names: don't bother, ConTeXt is happy
with whatever name you throw at it.
Only a couple things to add:
When fondu generates the .pfb file, copy the .afm to share the new
(probably longer) filename.
Texfont on MacOSX trips on capital letter extensions: make sure they're
uniformly lower case.
If fondu fails you (it hasn't failed me yet), there's also t1unmac 
(lcdf.org).

And if texfont installation fails or inexplicably stalls, you might 
need
to go in and truncate long (255+ character) lines by manually editing 
the
text file. I've always found these to be comment/copyright lines, so
you're not hurting anything by doing so.

You lucky so-and-so for getting Andulka!

other way (perhaps using wget.txt)?


Not certain if I'm a musketeer, but try this:

Download wget.txt to the directory where you want the files
cd to that directory
wget -Nxi wget.txt
