[NTG-context] Last call to 7th ConTeXt Meeting

2013-09-12 Thread Jan Kula

Dear all,

this is the last call for passengers to 7th ConTeXt Meeting in Brejlov, 
Czech Republic to register. Those who did so are already boarding. We 
have set up the last-minute fees (lower than regular ones).


The program has been updated and expect more: 
http://meeting.contextgarden.net/2013/abstracts.shtml


There are some places left, so do not hesitate and become a ConTeXt 
insider in one week. Good company, delicious food and drinks, beautiful 
countryside and good weather guaranteed!


See you in Brejlov,

Jano, Pavel, Hans  Taco

Hello again,

three new abstracts were added and some more are on the way. The 
preliminary program was released also.


This year the meeting will have more workshops and tutorials, though, 
the theory and discussions on future development will not be missing.


Program of TeXperience 2013 (Saturday-Sunday) will added today.

Best regards,

[NTG-context] 7th Context Meeting, early-bid deadline extended

2013-07-21 Thread Jan Kula

Dear all,

the deadline for early-bid registration to the upcoming 7th ConTeXt 
Meeting in Brejlov, Czech Republic was extended till July 31, 2013. 
Early registration also guarantees enough place for everybody who wish 
to attend, so you are welcome to register as soon as possible.


Though there are only few abstracts ready, the growing list of 
participants guarantees, you will get news and experience on the best of 
the ConTeXt and LuaTeX world, not speaking about the possibility to meet 
colleagues you already now from the list in person.


Enjoy the summer holidays and we are looking forward to meeting you in 
Breljov!

Hi,

Does it make sense, to port http://modules.contextgarden.net/t-degrade
to mkiv, or is there already an existing solution in ConTeXt to
downsample jpeg-images on the fly?

TIA for any hints,


There is Luigi's gmwand approach in grph-wnd.lua and something on 
conversions in grph-inc.lua, but I don't know a higher level context 
interface. Anybody else?

Not sure where exactly, but likely you have reached a size calculation 
limit of TeX (seems like a box calculation since more text works fine). 
Start with the bigger font size if you want to enlarge the box that much:


\setuppapersize[A4][A4] %% [A1][A1]
\showframe
\starttext
\definedfont[Serif at 20pt]
\scale[factor=max,width=\textwidth,height=\textheight]{\framed[frame=on]{!}}
\stoptext

Re: [NTG-context] glyph outlines

Hello to everybody,

how to draw character outlines for plotter to cut the letters out of the

In mkii error is issued during the run. Ignoring it finally produces the
outlines, so it seems, everything needed is available (gs, pdftops,
pstoedit). Anyway, mkiv way is preferred.


Here is the mkiv answer:

% define the spot color for the plotter
\definecolor[CutContour][c=0,m=1,y=0,k=0]
\definespotcolor[Contour][CutContour][p=1]

% here is the outline feature
\defineeffect[outline][alternative=outer,rulethickness=.25pt]

\starttext
\startcolor[Contour]
\definedfont[Serif at 50pt]

\starteffect[outline]
And here is the magic.
\stopeffect

\stopcolor
\stoptext

In this case CutContour is the name of the spot color, which is usually 
used in the industry. Anyway, the plotter can require different spot 
color name, or sometimes you can assign the color to be cut off the 
plate in the plotter software. Consult at your printing house :)
