Re: [NTG-context] Fonts: Minimals v. Texlive 2007

 Thanks to everyone who helped me get the minimals installed.
 
 I am having a little trouble. At my home computer, I have the Context 
 installation for Ubuntu 7.04 from the sanjoy tex-live backports. At work 
 I now have the minimals, --context=current, not beta. I expected that 
 the output of these two systems would be nearly identical. They are not.
 
 I do not use any special font handling. I let Context handle it all. I 
 use whatever the default fonts are, and use \setupbodyfont only to set 
 fontsize. The same source run on both machines produces slightly 
 different margins and slightly different font sizes. The minimals are 
 smaller (shorter) for the same font size (11 pt). I really would like to 
 get the same output for both systems.
 
 Can anyone help with this?

Is it a letter vs A4 thing perhaps?

Best wishes,
Taco

  Hello,
 
  It seem's that there's some changes on the « frenchpunctuation front »
  ! Thank's.
 
  I modified my test file and ad more precise rules to the wiki :
  http://wiki.contextgarden.net/frenchpunctuation
  I test it with luatex 0.29 and context 2008.09.21
 
  * Strange bug : the space After the openning quote («) is twice bigger
  than the one before the closing one (»). Look at test 3
  * Wolfgang change the wiki about the compose word, but using this
  (with the syntax compose||word) I get an endash (–) and not the normal
  sign (-). Test 5
  * There should't  be space between two sign. Test 2
  * The space before the footnote sign is too big (it's clearer with
  othe fonts). Test 4


 Point 3:

 \definehspace[fr][quote][\zeropoint]

 \installlanguage
   [fr]
   [leftquote=\upperleftdoublesixquote,
rightquote=\upperrightdoubleninequote,
leftquotation=\leftguillemot,
rightquotation=\rightguillemot]

 Point 4:

 \definehspace[fr][footnote][.1667\emspaceamount]

 \definehspace[footnote][\hspaceamount\currentlanguage{footnote}]

 \setupfootnotes[textcommand={\hspace[footnote]\nobreak\high}]


Wolfgang is definitly the super hero of this list \o/.

Hans, is there a « legal » procedure to have this inclued by default in the
\frenchpunctuation command ?

Cheers,
Olivier.

[NTG-context] index in swedish doc (mkiv)

2008-09-26 Thread Mikael Persson
Hi all,
I want to have an index in a swedish document, but when I add it I get
unknown instead of the letter heads. Minimal file:


\mainlanguage[sv]
\starttext
Test\index{test}
\placeindex
\stoptext


Just uncomment the \mainlanguage[sv] and you will get a t instead of
unknown as expected.

If there is something that has to be added when it comes to swedish
indices I am willing to do that.

By the way, this problem does only appear in mkiv, in mkii it works as
it should.

Best regards, Mikael Persson

Re: [NTG-context] French punctuation : tests

2008-09-26 Thread Olivier Guéry
Ok, aftre some test…

It seem's that it's linked to the fonts… damn !
The value in « \definehspace[fr][footnote][-.2667\emspaceamount] » need to
be negative, as I set it (work with my fontin_sans font, too big for lmodern
font).
Then I found two problems :
— the space after is way too big :o)
— how can I set other values of the \setupfootnotes ? I tried this :
\setupfootnotes[textcommand={\hspace[footnote]\nobreak\high},
bodyfont=\tfxx, width=70mm]

But I get an error.
Here is a minimal test about footnotes.

%
\mainlanguage [fr]
\language [fr]
\usemodule [french]
\setcharacterspacing [frenchpunctuation]

\starttext

\definehspace[fr][footnote][.1667\emspaceamount]
\definehspace[footnote][\hspaceamount\currentlanguage{footnote}]
\setupfootnotes[textcommand={\hspace[footnote]\nobreak\high}]

This texte, with a footnote\footnote{there's a point just after}.

\definehspace[fr][footnote][-.05\emspaceamount]
\definehspace[footnote][\hspaceamount\currentlanguage{footnote}]
\setupfootnotes[textcommand={\hspace[footnote]\nobreak\high}]

Same thing, with a negative value\footnote{look at the space after…}.

\stoptext
%

Cheers,
Olivier.

[NTG-context] switching (named) layouts?

2008-09-26 Thread Jelle Huisman
Hi,

Is it possible to give a layout definition a name? It would be really 
helpful to be able to say \definelayout[name=one][...]
\definelayout[name=two][...]
and then to be able to say: \setuplayout[one] and somewhere else in the 
document \setuplayout[two]
(This would mirror the way it is possible to switch papersizes.)

Or is there another way to have different collections of \definelayout 
settings that can be switched on or off at specific places? What is the 
best approach?

Thanks,

Jelle

Does anyone have someplace I could upload the samples for review by the

[NTG-context] bug in mkiv - paragraph column in tables

2008-09-26 Thread Chen Shen
Hi all,

The following simple table doesn't work right under mkiv. The baseline
of the paragraph (2nd) column is much lower than other columns.
The same code works fine under mkii. \showstructs shows the
difference between the two, but I wasn't too sure how this should be
fixed.
Thank you.

[NTG-context] Flaky pdf file.

2008-09-26 Thread John Culleton
Recent texlive 2008 installed on Linux Slackware 12.0 system.

I have a file that I can process via texexec and which shows up fine 
on my Acrobat Reader, kpdf or xpdf. However another person using 
(probably) Windows  keeps getting corrupt file errors when he tries 
to read it.   And when I try to run the output pdf through pdf2ps it 
blows up with this message:
-
  Warning:  An error occurred while reading an XREF table.
    The file has been damaged.  This may have been caused
    by a problem while converting or transfering the file.

Other pdf files on my system, built on other computers etc. process 
fine through pdf2ps.  I took out all the advanced stuff, such as 
bookmarks, interaction and urls but I still get the same kind of 
error.  An old pdf version of the file, dating back to February, also 
blows up. 

The preamble to the file plus dummy text looks like this: 

\setupoutput[pdftex]
\setupindenting[none]
\setupwhitespace[medium]
\frenchspacing
\setupcolors[state=start]
\setuphead[chapter][head=nomarking,number=no]

\setuplist[section][alternative=f,style=bold,interaction=no] 
\setuplist[subsection][alternative=f,interaction=no]
\setuplist[subsubsection][alternative=c,interaction=no] 
\starttext
foo
\stoptext
--
This blows up on pdf2ps also. 

 I just created a dummy pdftex file, compiled it, then converted it 
with pdf2ps with no problem. 

Either there is an error in my preamble or something fishy with 
Context.  Thoughts?

I downloaded ghostscript 8.63 but the pdf2ps  error persists. but the 
error goes away if I uses an earlier version of context, namely: 
TeXExec 5.2.4 - ConTeXt / PRAGMA ADE 1997-2005
(tetex distribution.)
Therefore the problem lies in the recent Context I have been using, 
and not in ghostscript nor in my code. 

My curremt version of Context is:
ConTeXt  ver: 2008.05.21 15:21 MKII  fmt: 2008.9.25  int: 
english/english

The next previous version of Context I have also fails this test:

ConTeXt  ver: 2007.01.12 15:56 MKII  fmt: 2007.9.26  int: 
english/english
My test file at the moment is:

\setupoutput[pdftex]
\starttext
foo
\stoptext

I am testing on LInux Slackware 12. 
Perhaps Hans or Thanh would care to comment.

[NTG-context] Context TeXLive 2008

2008-09-26 Thread Brian R. Landy
Hi, I wanted to share some observations from enabling the latest MkIV  
code (2008.09.24, compiled luatex from svn just now) to run on a new  
installation of TeXLive 2008 on 64bit Linux.  This is my first time  
trying MkIV.


First -- a comment on installing using TeXLive 2008, which hopefully  
is helpful to others.  In my installation I noticed that  
x86-64/bin/luatools was symlinked to  
texmf-dist/scripts/context/stubs/unix/luatools.  The rsync update  
process as outlined on garden does not update this file; it updates  
texmf-dist/scripts/context/lua/luatools.lua.  So this needs to be  
copied (or linked) over to make the update work.  The same issues  
exists with mtxrun.  The symptom was a broken context --make.


Now, on to my issues.  I am listing anything that used to work in my  
TeXLive 2007 installation of MkII but fails in 2008 (MkII or MkIV).   
Items 1-3 were tested on garden as well to ensure it was not an issue  
in my setup --


1. \placefloat[here]{none} fails.  \placegraphic works instead.  This  
works on MkII.  See test_placefloat.tex.


2. MkIV fails due to the \startcolor...\stopcolor sequence embedded in  
a natural table (see test_color.tex).  A working alternative is  
commented in that file.


3. MkIV will not typeset the file test.tex.  It is due to using  
{style=\switchtobodyfont[tt]} in the table setup.  Using [modern,tt]  
works fine, but this is not necessary with MkII.


4. This is a MkII issue (or maybe it is a pdftex problem?)  MkII on  
2007, texexec --dvi on 2008, and MkIV all work.  The problem is with  
pulling in an external figure like this --


\externalfigure[/tmp/testfigure]

The files /tmp/testfigure.eps and /tmp/testfigure.pdf exist.  This  
should use the full path to find the file, and will pick the eps when  
creating dvi and the pdf when creating pdf's.  As mentioned, this  
works with every combination I tested except 2008 MkII.  Some (not  
very usable for me) workarounds are --


- use the filename without the path and add the path using  
\setupexternalfigures[directory=]
- specify the .pdf extension (means I cannot typeset to dvi if I want  
to; I find this useful for previewing with xdvi's auto-reload)

- use \setupexternalfigures[directory=/] and use a relative path

5. Just a comment on performance -- I noticed that using MkIV on a  
complicated document I have took 23 minutes vs. 12 minutes with MkII.   
I didn't know if MkIV is expected to be slower/comparable/faster at  
this stage.


Anyway, I hope this is useful to other users and to the developers.

 I downloaded ghostscript 8.63 but the pdf2ps  error persists. but the
 error goes away if I uses an earlier version of context, namely:
 TeXExec 5.2.4 - ConTeXt / PRAGMA ADE 1997-2005
 (tetex distribution.)
 Therefore the problem lies in the recent Context I have been using,
 and not in ghostscript nor in my code.

Unfortunatly, I'm not sure about this.
During these years I have discover bugs in pdftex/luatex but also in
ghostoscript too;
really, it seems that I have found  another one this week in  gs 8.63, but
not in gs8.62
pdf spec. gs, luatex/context mkiv are moving target;
three year ago the situation was a bit more stable.

I am fairly certain the bug will also go away if you start your new 
context documents with

 \pdfobjcompresslevel=0
or  
\pdfminorversion=4

as that automatically suppresses object compression, the number one
cause of ghostscript issues with newer pdf files.

Best wishes,

Re: [NTG-context] Context TeXLive 2008

2008-09-26 Thread Wolfgang Schuster

Am 26.09.2008 um 23:37 schrieb Brian R. Landy:

 Hi, I wanted to share some observations from enabling the latest  
 MkIV code (2008.09.24, compiled luatex from svn just now) to run on  
 a new installation of TeXLive 2008 on 64bit Linux.  This is my first  
 time trying MkIV.

 First -- a comment on installing using TeXLive 2008, which hopefully  
 is helpful to others.  In my installation I noticed that x86-64/bin/ 
 luatools was symlinked to texmf-dist/scripts/context/stubs/unix/ 
 luatools.  The rsync update process as outlined on garden does not  
 update this file; it updates texmf-dist/scripts/context/lua/ 
 luatools.lua.  So this needs to be copied (or linked) over to make  
 the update work.  The same issues exists with mtxrun.  The symptom  
 was a broken context --make.

 Now, on to my issues.  I am listing anything that used to work in my  
 TeXLive 2007 installation of MkII but fails in 2008 (MkII or MkIV).   
 Items 1-3 were tested on garden as well to ensure it was not an  
 issue in my setup --

 1. \placefloat[here]{none} fails.  \placegraphic works instead.   
 This works on MkII.  See test_placefloat.tex.

Use \placefigure, \placefigure ... the correct syntax is  
\placefloat[floattype][here|page|...]{}{}

 2. MkIV fails due to the \startcolor...\stopcolor sequence embedded  
 in a natural table (see test_color.tex).  A working alternative is  
 commented in that file.

\bTD 4 \clear 0/8 \eTD

I think Hans is faster to find the bug, here is a shorter example:

\starttext

\bTABLE[aligncharacter=yes,alignmentcharacter={/}]
\bTR
\bTD 4 \startcolor[red] 0/8 \stopcolor \eTD
\eTR
\eTABLE

\stoptext

 3. MkIV will not typeset the file test.tex.  It is due to using  
 {style=\switchtobodyfont[tt]} in the table setup.  Using [modern,tt]  
 works fine, but this is not necessary with MkII.

Use style=mono.

 4. This is a MkII issue (or maybe it is a pdftex problem?)  MkII on  
 2007, texexec --dvi on 2008, and MkIV all work.  The problem is with  
 pulling in an external figure like this --

 \externalfigure[/tmp/testfigure]

 The files /tmp/testfigure.eps and /tmp/testfigure.pdf exist.  This  
 should use the full path to find the file, and will pick the eps  
 when creating dvi and the pdf when creating pdf's.  As mentioned,  
 this works with every combination I tested except 2008 MkII.  Some  
 (not very usable for me) workarounds are --

 - use the filename without the path and add the path using  
 \setupexternalfigures[directory=]
 - specify the .pdf extension (means I cannot typeset to dvi if I  
 want to; I find this useful for previewing with xdvi's auto-reload)
 - use \setupexternalfigures[directory=/] and use a relative path

 5. Just a comment on performance -- I noticed that using MkIV on a  
 complicated document I have took 23 minutes vs. 12 minutes with  
 MkII.  I didn't know if MkIV is expected to be slower/comparable/ 
 faster at this stage.

Depends on your document, a few things are slower like font loading
but other things like MetaPost graphics are faster, it is also good to  
have
a machine with 2 GB of memory or more  .

\pdfminorversion=4
solve my problems with ghostscript at least from 2005;
from  8.62, gs has some problems with fonts and rotate last page 90
clockwise
or counter clockwise with some pdf .
gs 8.63 works only with
\pdfobjcompresslevel=0
(I mean, same problems of gs 8.62.)


 as that automatically suppresses object compression, the number one
 cause of ghostscript issues with newer pdf files.

Not only with pdf, even in compilation.
Starting from 8.62
I 'm not able to build libgs from source tree because there are some
binaries that do not compile.
I must compile  ghostpdl, take these intermediary binaries  (echogs, I
believe, and some others)
put them into ghostscript tree and recompile.

Funny, after all.

Bingo! Now I must try it with my original file and see if the other 
person I have mentioned still has trouble with reading the pdf I 
create.

Thanks as always for the education.

It turns out that the OP was using Acrobat 5, so it all fits together. 

Does the same command work with plain pdftex?
