Re: [NTG-context] Special look of \item

2014-05-29 Thread Procházka Lukáš Ing . - Pontex s . r . o .

... Thanks a lot, that gave me a hint!

Finally I'm using:


\define[1]\ItemCommand{\hangindent=1.5in\relax\simplealignedbox{1.5in}{flushleft}{#1\hss---
 }\ignorespaces}

\setupitemize[command=\ItemCommand]

\starttext
  \startitemize
\item{Ward} \input ward

  \input ward

\item{Knuth} \input knuth
  \stopitemize
\stoptext


BTW: I tried to wikify but the result differs from that I'm getting with the 
latest beta (attached to this mail);
so I wikified nothing.

Best regards,

Lukas

[NTG-context] “Case-insensitive” sorting for \placelistofsynonyms?

2014-05-29 Thread Benjamin Buchmuller
Hi list,

according to case-insensitive sorting for \placeregister[…][…, method=…], I 
tried to figure out how to achieve similar results for \placelistofsynonyms 
(has method-key too). 

I tried this modified minimal example (that originally was proposed by Hans 
here: http://www.ntg.nl/pipermail/ntg-context/2010/052950.html), but failed:

\setuplayout[topspace=1cm,height=middle]

\setupbodyfont[11pt]

\starttext

\definesynonyms[abbr][abbrs][\unabbr]

\def\Test#1{\vbox{{\bf#1}\blank\placelistofabbrs[criterium=all,language=cz,method={#1}]}\blank}

wanted result: oá öb Oč Öď Oo Öo oo öo Öq öř Oš oů \blank

\startcolumns[n=2]
 \Test{before} \Test{first} 
 \Test{default}\Test{after}\Test{last}
\stopcolumns

wanted result: oá öb Oč Öď Oo Öo oo öo Öq öř Oš oů \blank

The wiki uses an old context version. You should try the example with

context mode=mkiv source=yes 
...

/context

If not, post the code and upload the image from your computer. That is 
better than not adding this to the wiki at all!

[NTG-context] Character and word spacing

2014-05-29 Thread Rik Kabel
I am setting some text from Geoffrey Dowding's /Finer Points in the 
Spacing and Arrangement of Type/. I am trying to set it using his 
recommendations. For those not familiar with his book, the key point is 
that he promotes extremely tight spacing to achieve a uniform density 
across the page in the belief that this leads to a pleasing presentation 
and improved readability.


Among his recommendations is that an opening single quote together with 
the space preceding it should take up no more space than a normal word 
space, and similarly following a closing single quote; that the space 
after some punctuation be minimized (some of his commas appear to have 
perhaps just a hairspace, following them); that the space between 
punctuation and letters be adjusted according to the shape of the 
letter; and that 'and' be replaced by '' as necessary to improve word 
spacing. While this last is probably beyond the scope of ConTeXt, I am 
hoping that the first few might be managed through 
\definecharacterspacing, \setupcharacterspacing, and \setcharacterspacing.


Alas, I have found no documentation on this set of commands, and what I 
see in the source is opaque.


If you have pointers to the details of these commands, or other 
suggestions for such typographic exercises, please let me know.

Thnkas doe yor reply.
Here is where I found that manual:
http://www.pragma-ade.com/general/manuals/columns.pdf

Unfortunately it does not cover the situation I
mentioned, where a graphic is place in the center
of a two column page but does not span either
column edge to edge but rather protrudes part of
the distance across each each column with text
flowing around it on both sides. In Context as
far as I can tell protrusion is all or nothing
in double columns. But a partial protrusion into a
single column has been available for a long time,
see The Context Manual section 15.2.

you can mess with sfcodes:

\starttext

\input tufte

\sfcode`\.100 \sfcode`\,100
\sfcode`\?100 \sfcode`\!100
\sfcode`\:100 \sfcode`\;100

\input tufte

\dostepwiserecurse{`a}{`z}{1}{\sfcode#1=100\relax}

\input tufte

\dostepwiserecurse{0}{}{1}{\sfcode#1=100\relax}

\input tufte

\stoptext

I'm pretty sure I would not read books typeset that way.

replacing and by  can be done too but that would look even worse (for 
consistency one should then replace 'or' by | and even more can be saved 
by going sms: wandering becomes wndering, and according becomes 
acc|rding plus the usual messing with digits


probably, omitting all vowels would work out too for reader who like 
that compact typesetting

Re: [NTG-context] placement of graphics across coluums.

2014-05-29 Thread Mica Semrick
Hi John,

Sorry to hear that didn't work. 

Could you not have a box that spans two columns, the put the graphic in the box 
and position the graphic as you wish?

I'm just getting started myself with columns; sorry if the suggestion doesn't 
make sense. 

Best,
Mica
