Just out of curiosity (and not related to this feature), I see that
Windows and Linux binaries (both 64bit) in the Suite contain different
versions (1.08 v. 1.07).

Is version 1.08 to be released or only the Windows platform contains the
latest stable binaries for LuaTeX?

Many thanks for your help,

Pablo

Re: [NTG-context] How to setup the footnote number in local footnotes

2) Alternatively, would like to be able to define a conversion that
sets the footnote numeral to 2.
3) Uncommenting the line % \startlocalfootnotes[n=2] doesn't work,
although it is mentioned here:
http://wiki.contextgarden.net/Command/startlocalfootnotes
So that must be for MKII..


Check setup-en.pdf for valid arguments in MkIV.


There are no options for \startlocalfootnotes and there is no command
such
as \setuplocalfootnotes. So how does one setup a conversion (or manual
numbering) for localfootnotes?


\startlocalnotes[footnote]
\setupnotation[footnote][numberconversion=...]
...
\stoplocalnotes


Many thanks.


BTW: \startlocalfootnotes = \startlocalnotes[footnote]


Ah, good to know that - still addicted to old habits here -)

[NTG-context] (fake) bold as font feature

2018-03-26 Thread Pablo Rodriguez
Hans,

would it be possible to add a embold feature (similar to the slanted
font feature) that fakes the bold font with
\starteffect[both]...\stopeffect and it doesn’t strecht the font?

This was already requested by Ulrike Fischer
(https://mailman.ntg.nl/pipermail/ntg-context/2017/090094.html).

Many thanks for your help,

Pablo
