[NTG-context] Hyphenation list ignored

2016-02-01 Thread Francisco Gracia
It has taken me some time to conjecture that *mwe* would probably mean *minimal working example* and somewhat more to try to concoct something that could pass for it, but here it is, in the attached file *mis-hyph.tex*. I hope not to have incurred in any gross mistake. Attached are also three

[NTG-context] Hyphenation list ignored

2016-01-27 Thread Francisco Gracia
This is to report a problem I am presently experiencing with Context. The symptom is that the contents of an hyphenation list, implemented as an outstanding file, I use for typesetting a lating text are no longer taken into account when performing the hyphenation operations. This happens with

[NTG-context] Instruction required about hyphenation patterns

2014-09-25 Thread Francisco Gracia
As well the original TeX manual as ConTeXt's one try to dissuade one of enquiring deeper into the subject of hyphenation patterns. For several reasons not to be explained at this moment this is however what I want to do. I have read all that I have found about the subject and think to have got a

[NTG-context] Footnote with midaligned text

2014-09-01 Thread Francisco Gracia
As the following example shows, just trying to add a footnote to a midaligned sentence is not that easy: either the footnote index is (dis)placed to the right margin or the footnote body does not show at its proper place (at the end of the page). Is there a way to make both things fit? Regards

[NTG-context] Problem with *lettrine* module in Mk-iv

2013-11-14 Thread Francisco Gracia
I am glad to report that the problems that I experienced until recently with the *lettrine* module have disappeared. At present it works like any other regular module. As the *lettrine* source file does not seem to have been modified, I conclude that the reason of the improvement should be

[NTG-context] Using *fleurons*

2013-11-11 Thread Francisco Gracia
Thanks for your contributions. You are right in your remark about the path to images, Wolfgang. I was not using any \setupexternalfigure[location=default] instruction. With your formulations the figure is recovered without problem. Unfortunately the results of your rewrite of the macro are not

[NTG-context] Chapter endings

2013-11-10 Thread Francisco Gracia
This is a disclaimer to my former message about this subject. I continued considering the solution to the problem of using *fleurons* in a document via the suggested *\leaders* command and it turned out to be a dead end for the following reasons: 1) it acts wrongly if the page in which the

[NTG-context] Using *fleurons*

2013-11-10 Thread Francisco Gracia
*Fleurons* are small decorative pieces that were often used in the past for filling big blank spaces in books. They are seldom used nowdays. As besides they will not appear more than a few times in any book (mainly at the end of chapters), the easiest thing to do if one insists in using them (for

Many thanks, Wolfgang, for your quick and complete solution to my riddle. As Hans has commented, it is really brilliant. I must confess that I do not understand yet the substance of it, i.e. the definition itself of *Fleuron*, but I will keep studying it and will end for getting it, I hope. For

[NTG-context] Problem with *lettrine* module in Mk-iv

2012-09-10 Thread Francisco Gracia
I am making my first steps in ConTeXt. I am only interested in Mk-iv and am using version 2012.09.06 23:03. I tried to explore the possibilities of the additional module *lettrine* following its documentation (*lettrine-doc.pdf*) and prepared the following example, which reproduces almost
