Excellent, this was the solution.  I'm certain to learn a great
deal from it.

Thanks again,

[NTG-context] TOC chapter and section numbering

2020-08-18 Thread Adrian
Hello,

I'm attempting to typeset a short book using ConTeXt (current version: 
2020.08.09 22:03).

EXAMPLE:

\setuplist[content][alternative=c]

\setuphead[title][alternative=middle,style=cap]

\setuphead[chapter][number=no]

\setuphead[section][sectionsegments=section]

\setuplist[section][width=1.5em,margin=3em]

\starttext
\title{contents}
\placecontent

\startchapter[title={Introductory}]
\startsection[title={The concept of a function}]
\stopsection
\startsection[title={Extension and intension}]
\stopsection
\startsection[title={Functions of several variables}]
\stopsection
\startsection[title={Abstraction}]
\stopsection
\stopchapter

\startchapter[title={Lambda-Conversion}]

\startsection[title={Primitive symbols, and formulas}]
\stopsection
\startsection[title={Conversion}]
\stopsection
\startsection[title={Fundamental theorems on well-formed formulas and on the 
normal form}]
\stopsection
\stopchapter

\stoptext

I would like all the chapters to be prefixed with "Chapter RN." and the 
sections to keep a single count,
for example:

Chapter I. Introductory .
1. The concept of a function
2. Extension and intension
3. Functions of several variables
4. Abstraction
Chapter II. Lambda Conversion .
5. Primitive symbols and formulas
6. Conversion
7. Fundamental theorems on well-formed formulas and on the normal form

I tried to the following for the chapters:

\defineconversion[church][Chapter \Romannumerals.\quad]

\setuphead[chapter][conversion=church]

Which appeared to generate the prefix correctly but it overlapped the title.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

[NTG-context] Best approach for project with three-part headings and table of contents references?

2008-10-01 Thread Adrian Drury
I am trying to figure out how best to use ConTeXt for a project. Essentially
I want to format postings on a message board for printing in a book, and
provide multiple tables of contents for the postings (more information
further down, and questions at the bottom). I'm sure that everything I want
to do can be done with ConTeXt, but I'm a ConTeXt beginner, and it looks as
if there's a lot of complexity to do this.

Each post has a title, an author, a date, and the text of the post. I'd like
to arrange the information roughly like this:

   Title of the post
Author author  - Date date
--
Text of the post... text text text
text text text.

Then I'd like to create a table of contents that lists posting titles by
date, like this:
January 1, 2008
 Title title title  10
 Another title .. 11
January 2, 2008
 Yet another title . 12

Putting the author in there also might be nice, like this:
January 1, 2008
 Title title title (John Doe).. 10
 Another title (Jane Doe)... 11
January 2, 2008
 Yet another title (John Doe). 12

I'd also like to have a table of contents that lists posting titles by
author, like this
Jane Doe
 A title . 14
 Another title .45
John Doe
 Title title title  35
 Another title .40

My questions:

1) How complex is this (for a beginner) to do in ConTeXt? I am very
comfortable with Perl, so I thought I could write a Perl script to parse the
posts and generate such tables of contents, with lots of \reference, \at,
and \about commands. If this needs significant complexity to solve, I would
prefer to handle the complexity with Perl, and keep the ConTeXt simple, so I
can understand it.

2) Can I (ab)use the existing heading commands (\title, \subject,
\setuphead, etc) to arrange and reference the title, author, and date? If
so, can anyone provide a hint of how to do the headings and referencing?
Will the existing heading commands let me reference the title, author, and
date values for use in my table of contents? It looks as if I would have
to create my own command that formatted the heading information how I wanted
it, and set up the three references. I looked at Alternative mechanisms in
the cont-eni.pdf, but that didn't seem to describe this type of flexibility.

3) If I can use the existing heading commands (question 2), can I also use
the existing index and/or table of contents commands (\setuplist,
\placecontent, etc)? And like  question 2, can anyone provide a hint of how
to do it? It looked to me as if a lot of custom ConTeXt code would be
necessary, and that I would have to build my own table of contents entry by
entry.

Thank you very much,
Adrian

[NTG-context] Batch files and texmf

2007-08-10 Thread Adrian Drury
I read the list in digest form - sorry my response won't be threaded in
properly!

How about this for your question, Idris? Pure DOS batch file stuff. I tested
it with notepad instead of Acrobat, but I assume it should be close to
working as shown here.


@ echo off

IF %1== GOTO NOARG

for /R C:\context %%n IN (.) DO IF EXIST %%n\%1 (
Echo Found %%n\%1
start Acrobat.lnk %%n\%1
GOTO END
)

:NOTFOUND
echo Couldn't find %1
GOTO END

:NOARG
echo Specify a file name to find

:END

[NTG-context] Lettrine and \startnarrower question

2006-01-28 Thread Adrian Drury
Hello,Using \lettrine (version 2005.08.29) inside \startnarrower\stopnarrower gives results I didn't expect - see the example below. Part of the text seems to be shifted right by an additional left-indent amount. Is this correct and/or expected behavior? If it is, is there a workaround to shift it back?
\usemodule[lettrine]\starttext\input knuth\startnarrower\lettrine{T}{est} \input knuth\stopnarrower\stoptextThanks,Adrian Drury

[EMAIL PROTECTED]Thank you very much for your suggestion - it does most of what I want to do. I have a follow-up question if anybody would like to provide more help! Because lines in \startlines\stoplines with \setuplines[space=yes] can be indented by space characters, I want to set Nindent for the dropped cap to (N * width of space character), so lines can be indented by the exact same amount they would be with spaces in \startlines\stoplines.
Is there a way to calculate the width of some number of characters (or a string of characters) to use as a dimension parameter? For example, a macro that returns the width in points of 5 space characters in the current font? I figured hardcoding the width of a space as a percentage of an em might work, but would probably not be consistent across fonts. Is that true, or is it really that simple?
I'd also be happy with a way to preserve spaces in the text inside the vbox (and ignore any Nindent dimension calculation), because
then I could just add the appropriate number of spaces for indentation
after the \crlf, like this: \vbox{\lettrine{S}{umer} is icumen in,\crlf
2 spacesLhude sing cuccu!}, as I do in \startlines\stoplines.Thanks very much,Adrian Drury

[NTG-context] Dropped caps, \startlines\stoplines, and indentation question

Hello,

I'm having trouble using dropped caps within \startlines\stoplines.
I'm trying to typeset some poetry and I'm using
\setuplines[space=yes]. I'd like to use dropped caps and have the
indented lines be additionally indented by any space at the beginning
of the lines.

See the following example - the first part shows roughly the result I
want (but with manual formatting/spacing), the second part shows the
result of \DroppedCaps inside \startlines\stoplines, and the third
part uses the lettrine module. The lettrine module comes close, but
Nindent doesn't seem to affect the indented lines within
\startlines\stoplines.

\usemodule[lettrine]
\def\MyDroppedCaps%
{   \DroppedCaps
{} {Serif} {2\baselineskip} {2pt} {1\baselineskip} {2}
}
\setuplines[space=yes]

\starttext
\MyDroppedCaps S{\sc umer} is icumen in,\crlf

Groweth sed, and bloweth med,\crlf

[NTG-context] kpathsea355.dll missing from 2005-11-16 mswintex.zip and mswincontext.zip

2005-11-23 Thread Adrian Drury
The mswintex.zip and mswincontext.zip files on www.pragma-ade.com,
dated 2005-11-16, are missing the kpathsea355.dll file from
root/tex/texmf-mswin/bin.

I discovered this while trying the URW Garamond installation
instructions in the wiki, and the texfont command failed running
vptovf.

The kpathsea355.dll file was in mswincontext.zip that I downloaded at
the beginning of September, so I copied it from there to my minimal
(re)installation (and successfully completed the URW Garamond
installation instructions).

For future reference, is this type of issue better tracked in the collector?

Regards,
Adrian Drury
