[NTG-context] Why I needed \parbox and why does \framed not work here?

Hi Gerben
The problem is, that \starttable[|c|c|c|] is for oneliners only.
Replace the statement with
\newcommand{\xttable}[7]{\starttable[|p|p|p|]\HL %

Re: [NTG-context] \raggedright?

Hi Gerben,
with \raggedright one needs to use {}. May be a better approach is to 
use \framedtext[align=left,width=xxcm,frame=off]{your text}
Pease refer to the attached file.

There are three different ways of aligning the three objects:
There are more possibilities aligning three objects. For example:
  A[[B][C]]
Standard \framed is not capable to align these three nested boxes to 
baseline. Since it is very frequent task of form typesetting, I did some 
very dirt hacks into \framed definition. But just for myself. (If Hans

Hello!
I have quite a few questions about ConTeXt (and more coming, I guess!).  
As a newbie, many things seem difficult for me.  For now, the questions 
are:

How does \part exactly work?  I could see: messing with pagenumbers; part
title not appearing; strange behaviour in eg backmatter...
Exactly? That is what I know: part is the highest level of a structure 
(e.g. a book). Part title will not occur in the TOC unless you change 
the settings manually (look in the main manual for 
\setuppagenumbering,look at chapter text elements main manual, pp 135,
How do exactly front, body, back matter and appendices environments work?
By means of these you van devide a document in different portions, which 
 have each their own style e.g. pagenumber in roman numerals, 
headings numbered with characters instead of figures (e,g, appendices). 
Of course you can change the standard set options.

How do the system modes (*...-modes) work exactly?  I managed to make
\startmode[*interaction] ... \stopmode
work, but what about the others starred modes?
Hm, no experience with these, thoug using extensively mode-structures...
What are the possible parameters for the \setupoutput command?
[pdftex][dvi]
Sorry for asking so many things...  I hope that when I know the answers I 
will be able to put some articles on ConTeXt wiki, so that other people do 
not bother you with the same questions again and again.
You are welcome.
There is a lot of information available. Context knows a bunch of 
manuals: http://www.pragma-ade.com/  and there is a wiki:

This one should have worked:
  A bit of \framed[width=5cm,
  align=justified,
  location=depth] {\input tufte \par} glamour
and the centered one can be approximated thus:
  A bit of $\vcenter{\framed[width=5cm,
 align=justified] {\input tufte \par}}$ glamour
But the 'centered' and the 'hanging' one would be nice to
have as a 'location' option as well, at least in my opinion.

Hi Willi,
Hi Marcin,
How do the system modes (*...-modes) work exactly?  I managed to make
\startmode[*interaction] ... \stopmode
work, but what about the others starred modes?
Most of these modes are only set part of the time. For instance,
the *sectionnumber mode is only sensible when it used from a macro that
is called from within the processing of the section title's typesetting
commands.
This would for instance happen if you had
  \setuphead[section][command=\Mymacro]
somewhere. This entire *sectionnumber system mode makes no sense at
an other time.
I hope that helps.
What are the possible parameters for the \setupoutput command?

[NTG-context] bib module: placepublications inserts the first line of each publication

2005-03-13 Thread Michael Fuchs
Hi!

Some of my bib-items will have more than one line in
the list of publications produced by \placepublications.
The first line of the entry will always be indented
by (probably) one character. The output looks like:


Bal01   Balzert, H. (2001). Lehrbuch der Software-Technik -
Software-Entwicklung.
   Spektrum Akademischer Verlag.

Sch04   Schmidt, C. (2004). Entwicklung eines Datenakquisitionssystems für
das
   Crystal-Barrel-Experiment zur Messung photoinduzierter Reaktionen an
ELSA.
   Dissertation, Universität Bonn.


The indent does not appear, when I define the module to use a different
author style by:

\setuppublicationlist
[
  ...
artauthor=\normalshortauthor,author=\normalshortauthor,
  ...
]

Hi Gerben,
There is no worry about the mentioned chaos. You might be lucky, that 
your definition is giving a result at all.

If you consult the manual or read the article in the MAPS22 on 
tabulating, you will see, that you missed a correct setup of the tabulation.

I attach my version and it works.

Indeed, there is no \starttable info in the manuals. You might have a 
look into the sources:core-tab.tex.  But what I can see, is, that you do 
not use vertical lines. If all tables are such, then I would suggest to 
use \starttabulate instead.

[NTG-context] Some extra empty pages, why? And how to get an initial blank page with page number 0?

2005-03-13 Thread Gerben Wierda
Fro my environment:
%\setuppapersize[B5][B4,landscape]
\setuppapersize[B5][B5]
\setupindenting[small]
\setuplayout[location=doublesided]
%\setuparranging[2SIDE]
\setuppagenumbering[alternative=doublesided]

[page=left,
before={\ChQuoteFormat{\ChapterQuote}\noheaderandfooterlines%
\page[right]\blank[2*big]},
after={\ClearChapterQuote\blank[3*big]}%
\noheaderandfooterlines]
Without \setuppagenumbering[alternative=doublesided], I get single 
sided layout (even if I have the \setuplayout statement, very 
confusing). If I do add \setuppagenumbering[alternative=doublesided], I 
get the following:

1. Title page
2. Empty
3. Page with only a page numer 1 at the top
4. empty
5. Page with Contents 'chapter'
6. Page with quote
7. First page of chapter
Except for pages 3 and 4 that is how I want it. Why are these pages 
there? They are not there if 
\setuppagenumbering[alternative=doublesided] is left out.

My product file looks like this:
\startproduct prd_book
\project project_teoada
\starttext
\start
\startstandardmakeup \ss
\hairline \start
\switchtobodyfont[20pt]\bf
\leftaligned{TEOADA}%

\stopfrontmatter
\component c_ch1
\component c_ch2
\component c_ch3
\startappendices
   \component c_app1
\stopappendices
\stoptext
\stopproduct
I have been trying a lot of permutations but so far without luck.
Secondly, when I turn on 2xB5 on one B4 landscape and 2SIDE 
arrangement, I would like to have an initial blank page (with page 
number 0) so I can have my 2SIDE look just like a book would look. I 
have tried to get one with the \page command in various places and with 
various setups, but so far without *any* effect.

I have been using the manual, the wiki and any documentation I have 
been able to find. So far no luck.

Re: [NTG-context] Why I needed \parbox and why does \framed not work here?

2005-03-13 Thread Gerben Wierda
Hi Willi,
Thanks.
If what you changed was the addition of the (2cm) stuff, I did try that 
but it did not change anything at that time.

But now I notice that I need to start my rows with a \NC. I would have 
thought that a \NC would be like a \crlf or a \page and that it would 
have been implied in the \NR command. I find this counterintuitive.

Anyway, Having that (2cm) stuff in the \startabulate makes all tables 
the same in column width. I used to be able to have one command 
\xttable where the result depended on what I had in the main text.

So, yes, I can use p columns, but that means that all of my tables will 
hae to have identical column widths. That is why I wanted to use c 
columns and have that decision in the text. So I would still be 
interested in a way of doing \parbox in ConTeXt.

(For non-LaTeX users \parbox{2cm}{text text text text etc} creates a 
paragraph 2 cm wide and sets the text in it. The height of the box is 
the result of that typesetting.)

Re: [NTG-context] Re: Learning ConTeXt, typical hurdle

2005-03-13 Thread Willi Egger
Hi Gerben,
Due to a mistaken handling you roriginal mail I lost it :-(
In that mail in the last part, I believe it was an example \component I 
saw, that you said \starttext ... \stoptext. You do not need this pair, 
The handling of starting and stopping is done by the \startproject ... 
\stopproject commands.

In the product section I saw that you did not use the \startbodymatter 
... \stopobodymatter. I think this is important, because in the 
frontmatter sectionheading handling is different, as is in the backmatter.

here you go with an example I prepared:
\startproject HBBbrev
\enablemode[A-vier]
\environment layout
\product voorpag%Titlepage for the book
\product beginmat   %Frontmatter: Woord vooraf, Koppermaandag,
%Boekbinderslied
\startbodymatter
\environment lo-3
\product gekart  %Gekartonneerd in drie varianten
\product bdz-rech%Bandzetter rechte rug
...
\product technik %Werkwijzen en technieken
\product appendix%Appendices:
\stopbodymatter
\product backmat %Backmatter: Impressum
\nomorefiles
\stopproject
In my case many of the product-files contain a number of \components.
I do hope, that this helps.
Kind regards Willi

Hey Gerben,

Now what turns out to solve this? Empty lines before \description and
\stopdescriptions

Things that were defined using \definedescription rely on \par as a
delimiter.

Though I like ConTeXt if I look at certain design aspects, behaviour that
depends on whitespace before a command frightens me.

Just the way it works :-) Nothing to worry about.

There are three different ways of aligning the three objects:
(A and B on the same baseline as the first row)

[NTG-context] Microtype ConTeXt question

2005-03-13 Thread Gerben Wierda
http://mail.rna.nl/~gerben/microtype.tiff contains an image of a margin 
of a piece of text I just have typeset with ConTeXt.

I was wondering about two things:
1. How does one set up the use of margi kerning in ConTeXt given that 
my ConTeXt (without me having selected it myself) uses Latin Modern?

I have tried adding
\usetypescript [serif,sans,mono] [hanging]  [thanh]
to my environment file.
2. If you look at the image (link above) you see that there is no 
margin kerning there. Also I was wondering if margin kerning would make 
not only the . protrude but also the slanted f protrude negatively.

Hello Michael,

 The workaround with the \hbox{} does work. Is this some kind of
 bug and will be fixed in the future? 

as a workaround, you can say

\usemodule[units]
\enablemode[atpragma]% warning, probably 1s of side effects
\starttext
In dieser Arbeit wurde die Reaktion untersucht. Im Energiebereich bis

Re: [NTG-context] Some extra empty pages, why? And how to get an initial blank page with page number 0?

2005-03-13 Thread Willi Egger
Hi Gerben,
I puzzeled with your project code.
First you  are not allowed to use \starttext \stoptext in a definition.
Your definitione interferes with the chapter mechnism. So more knowledge 
is necessary which I do not have at the moment.
in the before option you say \page=right, seems to create a problem.
If you want to start a page with blank lines you nee to insert a \strut

I have been trying a lot of permutations but so far without luck.
Secondly, when I turn on 2xB5 on one B4 landscape and 2SIDE arrangement, 
I would like to have an initial blank page (with page number 0) so I can 
have my 2SIDE look just like a book would look. I have tried to get one 
with the \page command in various places and with various setups, but so 
far without *any* effect.

I have been using the manual, the wiki and any documentation I have been 
able to find. So far no luck.

[NTG-context] Re: newbie question about fonts

2005-03-13 Thread Patrick Gundlach
Hello Ciro,

 I am my distributor maintainer. 

But you got your distribution from some source?

 what is the local guide you refer to?

This should come with your TeX system (Linux system, downloaded TeX
system, whatever) that tells you about things that you need to know
about your TeX system. Including the available fonts. Since I don't
know what your TeX system is, I can't tell you if you have such a
local guide. If it is not on your system, you should complain to the
person that gave you the TeX.


 Wouldn't it be nice to have a command in Context like:

 \listavailablefonts [type1 | truetype | ... | all]

Then please define what a font is. But apart from that, it is not
possible from within TeX.

May be, that one should use a single \comment only. Still there is a

Do you *need* different directories? Perhaps it's sufficient to name

AFAIK ConTeXt looks always into the parent directories, but not in 
parallel/child directories if not explicitly specified. (E.g. you can 
define a figures path.)
you can say
\usepath[somepath]
\usesubpath[one]

So - is there a parameter which represents the current width of the

I came up with a rather ugly kludge which solves my immediate problem

Some text first, which behaves perfectly, and then a table:
\leavevmode\RealWidth=\textwidth\advance\RealWidth

\setupTABLE[column][1][width=0.3\RealWidth]
\setupTABLE[column][2][width=0.7\RealWidth]

\bTD that this table would make itself narrower according to the

\stoptextbackground

Just the way it works :-) Nothing to worry about.
there are only a few commands that depend on that

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[PANTONE 294CV][c=1,m=.56,y=0,k=.18]
\definecolor[IFSblue][{PANTONE 294CV}][p=1]
\definecolor[IFSbluetint][{PANTONE 294CV}][p=.2]
\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?
The problem is in the space in the name; since this name is used all over the 
place, an internal cleanup will not help, so this is why we have (yes, 
undocumented, so ... add to the wiki)

\setupcolors[rgb=no,cmyk=no,spot=yes,state=start]
\definecolor[IFSbluebase]  [c=1,m=.56,y=0,k=.18]
\doregisterspotcolorname{IFSbluebase}{PANTONE 294CV}
\definecolor[IFSblue]  [IFSbluebase][p=1]
\definecolor[IFSbluetint]  [IFSbluebase][p=.2]
\definecolor[IFSblueheadertint][IFSbluebase][p=.12]
\definecolor[IFSbluetabletint] [IFSbluebase][p=.15]
\starttext
  \color[IFSbluetabletint]{Interesting}
\stoptext
So, use nice names internally and register the name using a low level feature; 
in a next version i will provide

\definecolor[IFSbluebase]  [c=1,m=.56,y=0,k=.18,e=PANTONE 294CV]
(e for equivalent) which is nicer.
[multitone colors are even nastier, but they are cleaned up automatically]

Hello *,
inspired by Gerben's question, I did some experimenting with \framed.
I'd like to get A[text]B, where text is some long thing in a framed
box like \framed[width=5cm] {\input tufte \par}.
There are three different ways of aligning the three objects:
(A and B on the same baseline as the first row)
A We  thrive  in  information- B
---
  thick worlds because of  our
  marvelous and  everyday  ca-
(A and B in the middle of the box, not necessarily on the same
baseline as a line in the box)
  criminate, distinguish, screen, 
A pigeonhole,  pick  over,  sort, B
  integrate,blend,   inspect,

(A and B on the same baseline as the last row)
  from the chaff and seperate
A the sheeps from the  goats. B


I was unable to get any of these alignments.
one way is to put things in a box and do some measuring and such; however, then 
you need to know a bit about the position of the baseline (measurethe middle 
box, and use a dummy framed around A and B with that height set etc)

the other way is to use the following extensions (i made the dislocator 
installable so that you can hook in your own code if needed)

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/?
i can imagine interference between input encoding and remapping (map/enc file) 
later in the pipeline, but what puzzles me is that different runs produce 
something different; sounds more like an os/caching problem

Re: [NTG-context] Re: Learning ConTeXt, typical hurdle

Hey Gerben,

Now what turns out to solve this? Empty lines before \description 
and
\stopdescriptions
Things that were defined using \definedescription rely on \par as a
delimiter.

Though I like ConTeXt if I look at certain design aspects, behaviour
that
depends on whitespace before a command frightens me.
Just the way it works :-) Nothing to worry about.
What this introduces is that the working of the ascii file depends on 
its
layout. I can understand that an empty line does a \par (it is 
convenient
after all) but I would see that kind of behaviour kept to a minimum. 
That
is, now I have this 'invisible' element that is needed to close my
structure. It is something quite unexpected for me in a TeX workflow.
Different layout because of a missing empty line, fine. But an error
message and a halt really surprises me. Another part of a learning 
curve
which if you want adoption you should try to avoid. But maybe it is
impossible to make ConTeXt more 'forgiving'.
The alternative is \startdescription\stopdescription which is 
logically
nicer, but adds inconvenience to the typing/editing
IMO LaTeX here does a better user-interface job (not just because I 
happen
to know LaTeX). Withing the description environment \item starts a new
item and the item ends with the start of another item or the end of 
the
environment. Completely independent of the layout of the ascii file.
It would IMO be a lot friendlier if my \stopdescriptions and 
\description
commands would take care of this and I could do things like:
\startdescriptions
\description{Foo} Bar bar bar
\description{Foo} Bar bar bar
\description{Foo} Bar bar bar
\stopdescriptions
without triggering an error.
this could be made working to some extend, but it would complicate the 
code; this mechanism actually is implemented so that it can handle:

\starttext
\definedescription[test]
\test oeps whow \par
\test oeps
whow
\test {oeps} whow \par
\test {oeps} whow \par
\starttest {oeps} whow \stoptest
\stoptext
nowadays i tend to more verbose coding; anyhow, we can add something
\unprotect
\def\startdescriptions
  {\dosingleempty\dostartdescriptions}
\def\dostartdescriptions[#1]%
  {\begingroup
   \def\item{\getvalue{#1}}%
   \let\dostoppairdescription \donothing

\starttest{Foo} Bar bar bar \stoptest
\starttest{Foo} Bar bar bar \stoptest
\stopdescriptions
\startdescriptions[test]
\item{Foo} Bar bar bar
\item{Foo} Bar bar bar
\item{Foo} Bar bar bar
\stopdescriptions
\stoptext
for those who have problems adapting; so, what does the general 
context public think of such an extension?
Apart from adapting, the \startitemize \stopitemize does not require me 
to have a \par at the end. That is also confusing.

I don't want use tables/tabular, i try to use \vsplit.


I try to read page-ini, i find useful things like \everyafterpagebody

This needs to happen in the normal text flow (unless you want to use
more dirty tricks)
  
  
\startsetups [continue]
  
 \strut\hbox to \textwidth

Not only it works, it's also very nice:
thanks Hans.

(
I know that 
\newdimen\RightMarginWidth
\RightMarginWidth=\rightmarginwidth

it's strange (after all i use \footerheight
at the next line...).

Some time ago i wrote something like
\MyDimension=0.87\rightmarginwidth

During some corrections/enhancement i made a mistake and i wrote
\rightmarginwidth
=0.87\MyDimension

A nightmare.

When i feel insecure (will i use this dimensions as readonly or
read/write variables ?)
i prefer a safe copy
(in this case i'm sure that i use \footerheight as a readonly var).
