Re: [NTG-context] [***SPAM***] Can't find recommended tool

2013-06-23 Thread d.henman

Pable,
  thanks, but it doesn't work. so easily.  mxtrun only see what is in the TeX 
directory tree and uses that font database.  My question is how to register the 
font to that system so that mtxrun can find it.   How does one do that with a 
ttf font file?

Thanks

  I am trying to install a font so that Context cn use it.  I am  using
  the simplefont module and have a ttf that I'd like to use.
  
  There is a lot of conflicting information out about to do this and
  som is outdated.   As for ContTeX I did find a nice article, but it
  says to use the program texfont, which ships with ConTex, but I do
  not have any such file.
  
  texfont --ve=sil --co=gentium --makepath --install
  
  
  I am using the TexLive version.   Is there any simple method to get
  this font so that it can be used by ConTex MKIV ?
 
 Yes, install your font (I assume is Gentium) on your operative system.
 
 Run mtxrun --script fonts --reload. (Not sure it is required, but I
 need this each time I install a font.)
 
 And (assuming you installed Gentium), here is the sample code:
 
 \usemodule[simplefonts]
 \setmainfont[Gentium]
 \starttext
 \input knuth
 \stoptext
 
 Compile it with context gentium.tex (change file name accordingly) and
 it should work.
 
 If not, please try to describe what happened.
 
 I hope it helps,
 
 
 Pablo

The variable is (I'm assuming you use Windows [I don't know whether this
have changed in versions above XP]):

OSFONTDIR=c:/windows/fonts//

If I'm not wrong, you should add this into your texmf.cnf file (invoke
it with kpsewhich texmf.cnf).

Rebuild the font cache (mtxrun --script fonts --reload) and it should
work.

I hope this helps,

[NTG-context] simplefonts wiki page added

2013-06-23 Thread Pablo Rodríguez
Dear list,

I have added a new simplefonts page for new users. (I hope it isn't full
of errors ;-).)

There may be some missing information, because I don't understand how
the standard font handling in ConTeXt works.

And I removed duplicated content from the font handling in LuaTeX
(http://wiki.contextgarden.net/index.php?title=Fonts_in_LuaTeXaction=historysubmitdiff=21929oldid=20049).

Just in case it helps,


Pablo

mkiv does not use kpse and texmf.cnf but texmfcnf.lua

also, OSFONTDIR is already set

Re: [NTG-context] Auto selecting optical sizes for a font

2013-06-23 Thread Georg Duffner

We have no feature 'size' (or I must have forgotten about it). As

esthetic choice involved no automatic mechanism is (and will be)
build in.


Hi,

There is a 'size' table in opentype fonts which contains informations 
about the design size, the design range and a style-ID and -name. Fonts 
that come with different optical sizes do in fact use that table exactly 
for the purpose desired by Andrés. Latin Modern does so, Adobe fonts do 
so and EB Garamond happens to use that table too. XeLaTeX and LuaLaTeX 
interpret it correctly (by means of fontspec, IIRC). So perhaps it’s 
worth reconsidering this.


Best regards,
Georg
