I've modified that block this way:

\newconditional\IndexState
%\define[1]\IndexInternalCommand
\unexpanded\def\IndexInternalCommand#1%
  
{\doifelse{#1}{Dolsko}{\global\settrue\IndexState}{\global\setfalse\IndexState}#1}

%\define[1]\IndexCommand
\unexpanded\def\IndexCommand#1%
  {\setfalse\IndexState
   \setbox\scratchbox\hbox{#1}%
   \ifconditional\IndexState
 \column
   \fi
   \box\nextbox}


Is it what you propose? If so, I am still getting the same error.

[NTG-context] LMTX deeptextcommand issue

2019-04-02 Thread Jan Tosovsky
Dear All,

my document ends with the index

\startbackmatter
\chapter{Rejstřík jmenný}
\start
\switchtobodyfont[8pt]
\placeindexname
\stop
\stopbackmatter
\startbackmatter
\chapter{Rejstřík věcný}
\start
\switchtobodyfont[8pt]
\placeindexsubject
\stop
\stopbackmatter

At the beginning there is a condition for one word (kind of manual column
balancing) - but according to the log, see below, this seems to be an issue:
\newconditional\IndexState
\define[1]\IndexInternalCommand
 
{\doifelse{#1}{Dolsko}{\global\settrue\IndexState}{\global\setfalse\IndexSta
te}#1}

\define[1]\IndexCommand
  {\setfalse\IndexState
   \setbox\scratchbox\hbox{#1}%
   \ifconditional\IndexState
 \column
   \fi
   \box\nextbox}

\defineregister[indexname][indexnames]
\setupregister[indexname][command=\Word, textcommand=\IndexCommand,

\defineregister[indexsubject][indexsubjects]

\setupheadtext[indexname=Rejstřík jmenný]
\setupheadtext[indexsubject=Rejstřík věcný]


This worked in luatex 1.0.1, but in LMTX I am getting:

When I've seen that 'crap' and weird page dimensions, I thought it is part
of the April fool, like all that LMTX announcement.

This issue is not urgent, I was just curious how different the output is.

I suppose the problematic part is rsync here, which communicates via unusual 
port number 873. It is typically disabled in company environments.

I encountered this few years ago. Now I've found a workaround for this (but not 
tested):

Visual editing of complex structures is hard to implement. For XML based 
publishing there is just single serious tool!
https://www.oxygenxml.com/xml_author/docbook_editor_structured_editing.html

Desktop is IMHO declining so I'd personally prefer a web app, which could be 
then packed even for desktop via https://electronjs.org/

While web frontend development was very fragmented in past, most developers 
nowadays prefer https://reactjs.org/ framework.

For visual editing an advanced rich text editor is a must. This one is really 
promising https://github.com/ianstormtaylor/slate as it can read/write custom 
scheme. Btw, it is used in https://github.com/GitbookIO/gitbook project. 
Mentioning Gitbook, it could also be a source of inspiration.

Regards,

Jan

For HTML I'd also consider javascript highlighters
https://highlightjs.org/
http://prismjs.com/
http://alexgorbatchev.com/SyntaxHighlighter/

However, all need special configuration files, which are AFAIK not ready yet. 
They could be derived from TeX though (supported by the first one).

Anyway, adding ConteXt support for these libraries could be sort of ConTeXt 
project promotion ;-)

For simple shapes I'd choose Inkscape SVG editor, which can export to DXF 
directly. In settings you can customize the coords precision to reduce those 
fractions.

For more sophisticated designing I'd skip simple 2D CADs and use parametric 
tools instead (allowing to use equations instead of fixed values which 
simplifies future refactoring).

I'd recommend Autodesk Fusion, which is even free for enthusiasts:

Nice. But..

My use case is 300+ pages book with several occurences. If those red rectangles 
were provided as annotations, I could efficiently jump from one to another, 
without browsing all the book (thanks to the special Annotation pane).
http://ptgmedia.pearsoncmg.com/images/chapter09_0321751256/elementLinks/rc_13.jpg

Both searching occurrences (in PDF) using the line number of the original 
source or visually by looking for red rectangles is IMHO inefficient.

However, I agree there are more important features to implement.

As promised, I've published a set of XSLT stylesheets for DocBook to ConTeXt 
conversion.

Details can be found at http://doctribute.com/blog/

There is also a step by step description how to test stylesheets on a sample 
DocBook v4 book.

As you can see, I've changed my mind and instead of patching dbcontext project 
I created a new one. It finally took more time than originally estimated.

If you encounter any misleading info or inclarity, let me know.

[NTG-context] Overfull annotations

2016-04-12 Thread Jan Tosovsky
Dear All,

thanks to the following command I can already filter out everything except
under/overfull cases:
context --noconsole source.tex

It is nice, but would it be possible to print also affected page numbers of
the final PDF file?

But to be honest, the best for me would be PDF annotations (rectangles)
placed to that occurrences. In Acrobat Reader you can easily list them and
automatically navigate to the target location (and then jump to the
prev/next).

Thanks in advance for a new option :-)

I am completely lost. I found page-grd.mkiv, but I have no idea what to tweak 
here.

By simple putting \showgrid[reset] at the beginning of the document no grid is 
shown, but those colored areas are present.

I am giving it up.

a good catch, Pablo, thanks.

My idea is to have a single PDF source to showcase some ConTeXt features, where 
displaying the grid is handy, yet allow disabling the grid on demand. 

So any visible \showgrid related issues, which cannot be switched off together 
with the grid layer, are unacceptable ;-)

Is there any chance to improve this a bit?

I found a nasty drawback of this method. If that hbox is used, the first 
paragraph is not evaluated correctly and considered as the second one. When 
indentation is enabled, the first paragraph after the title is not usually 
indented, but now it is. Additionaly, even if indenting is disabled, there is a 
bigger distance between title and the following para.

\setupindenting[yes, 2em]

\starttext

\section{The first section}\index{the first section}

The first para.\par
The second para.

\section{The second section}\leftboundary\hbox{\index{the second section}}

The first para.\par
The second para.

\stoptext


I could eventually avoid inserting that 'index' tweak into titles, but this is 
another exception which an end-user should keep in mind ..and.. I hate 
exceptions ;-)

Any idea?

Especially Adobe Acrobat Reader DC.

When the PDF file is closed in the Reader, a list of recent files is displayed 
instead. The most recent one is selected and its thumbnail is displayed in the 
right pane. From my experience as long as this thumbnail is displayed, the PDF 
file is locked for any modifications (!) Really silly from Adobe developers.

My advice is to either close Reader completely or select another item in the 
recent opened documents.

[NTG-context] Weird background colors in autogenerated index

2016-04-09 Thread Jan Tosovsky
Dear All,

since LuaTeXt 0.81 my back-of-the-book index (register) is generated with
strange background colors. The index title is typeset in yellowish
background and the left column of the last index page has a blue background,
see the attachment.

I've thought I reported it, but it is still there even in 0.95. It was fine
in the version 0.80.

Could this be somehow eliminated?

Thanks, Jan

[NTG-context] Ligature color is not reliable

Dear All,

for an illustration I wanted to colorize all ligatures, but the following
method is not reliable for three character ligatures - which ends up black.

While tested with Palatino, it can be simulated even with a default font

\definefontfamily[palatino][rm][Palatino Linotype][features={default,

\setupbodyfont[palatino]

I meant commandline ssh program used for tunneling:

[NTG-context] Downloading ConTeXt standalone alternatively

2016-04-07 Thread Jan Tosovsky
Dear All,

I've tried to install ConTeXt at work, but it failed because of blocked 873
port used by rsync. Our admins aren't going to open that port in foreseeable
future.

I don't have any computer outside the firewall to tunnel the port using 'nc'
program as described at http://wiki.contextgarden.net/ConTeXt_Standalone -
and I am on Windows so I don't have 'ssh' either.

Looking into the first-setup.bat and especially to mtx-update.lua all files
seem to be picked up on demand and there isn't any repository for ConTeXt
Standalone I could download directly (that syncing is not crucial now).

Is there more efficient way than packing my home context folder and copying
& unpacking it in my work?

Thanks, Jan

Indeed, you most likely figured the problem. They are mentioning luatex, while

My concern was based on this introduction (on title page), especially on that 
sentence marked with asterisks:


Note that character protrusion requires pdfTeX (version 0.14f or later), 
LuaTeX, or
XeTeX (at least version 0.9997). Font expansion works with pdfTeX (version 1.20 
for
automatic expansion) or LuaTeX. The package will by default enable protrusion 
and
expansion if they can safely be assumed to work. Disabling ligatures requires 
pdfTeX
(≥ 1.30) or LuaTeX, 


while the adjustment of interword spacing 
and of kerning only works with pdfTeX (≥ 1.40). 

*

Letterspacing is available with pdfTeX (≥ 1.40) or LuaTeX (≥ 0.62).



> 3 - i have no clue what tracking is

As explained in that document this seems to be a synonym for letter spacing, 
which is IMO supported.

> 4 - neither what additional kerning is (unless you mean (usually ugly)
> extra inter character kerning, which is supported)

Rereading the description in that document there is no advanced processing 
behind it, so most likely just that ugly kerning, already available in ConTeXt. 
Just curious why not mentioned as supported on the title page.

> 5 - it being a rather core tex feature, normal interword spacing is
> supported

This seems to be a standard glue with plus/minus value. Again, curious why not 
mentioned as supported on the title page.

Are you aware of any typographic feature which is available in pdfTeXt, but not 
in ConTeXt?

[NTG-context] Microtypography in ConTeXt

2016-04-05 Thread Jan Tosovsky
Dear All,

according to http://texdoc.net/texmf-dist/doc/latex/microtype/microtype.pdf
pdfTeX offers fine tuning of:
(1) Character protrusion
(2) Font expansion
(3) Tracking
(4) Additional kerning
(5) Interword spacing

AFAIK ConTeXt covers 1+2+(3?). In recent discussion Hans mentioned
experimental 'space kerning'. Is it anything related to above features (4)?
Are there any plans to cover the rest?

Thanks, Jan

Thanks for examples. I'll finally use another approach - disabling indentation 
locally:

\definefontfeature[default][default][protrusion=quality]

\setupbodyfont[modern-designsize]

\setupalign[hanging]

\setupbackgrounds[text][leftframe=on]

\starttext

\setupindenting[yes,medium]

\input{tufte}

{\noindenting
\startnarrower
“line1\par
line2\par
line3\par
line4.
\stopnarrower
}

\input{tufte}

\stoptext

While protrusion in this case may look ugly, it is consistent with the rest.

I thought Hans could also mean something like example below, but while leftskip 
should 'indent' all lines inside paragraph, it works only for the first one. 
Moreover, protrusion is not applied as well. And \crlf doesn't seem to be soft 
linebreak as it behaves like normal \par command - which is most likely 
explanation for that indenting issue.

{\leftskip=2cm
“line1\crlf
line2\crlf
line3\crlf
line4.
}

Anyway, I found acceptable solution (noindenting).

thanks, but I am lost here. The following has impact on the left margin and it

Wow, I am quite satisfied with this solution.

Btw, I couldn't find any details for that \leftboundary command either in TeX 
[1] or ConTeXt [2] command references.

I've tried it just with \hbox{} and it works as well.

Couldn't this be generalized in a way - if you want protrusion even in edge 
cases, any inline commands have to be wrapped in \hbox{} ?

Good to know, thanks. I take it rather as a limitation.

Use case:
- book uses global indentation
- there is poem typeset in narrower block
- there is punctuation in the first verse which disrupt optical margin alignment

Are there alternative ways?

Btw, from end user perspective I'd expect it should work by default without 
further tweaking.

Can you roughly estimate when this could be further investigated?
Between 0.90-0.95, later or after 1.0? 

I hope there will be some way to fix it in ConTeXt one day.

Does this settings just set \parfillskip XX plus 1fil or there is more complex

After recent improvements I've tested this older issue, but it is still
problematic.

When that \setupindenting is uncommented, french quote is not hanged.

Just updating the status :-)

I am getting slightly different results on several pages. The number of 
problematic cases is lower in my variant so I hope it makes still sense.

> try \ward{}okay i.e. a short word at the end

Hmm, I indeed tested my approach with bad example.
Now your previous examples make more sense to me :-)

> for your case i see no solution apart from heuristic lua magic

Bad news. But I hope my parfillskip will work for majority cases and these 
problematic with words shorter than parindent+tolerance can be fixed afterwards 
by joining them with previous words using non-breaking space.

I'll look into your 'crap' paragraph builder lua code if this exception could 
be handled programmatically without touching the source file (i.e. test for 
short last line and treat leading whitespace as it was '~' if necessary).

yes, but this is my goal (!)

See https://mailman.ntg.nl/pipermail/ntg-context/2016/084858.html - case (2)

I am afraid I hasn't been clear enough yet.

So the following \parfillskip specification finally seems to be what I was 
looking for as it covers both cases in my original question:

\setupindenting[yes,2em]

\newdimen\lastlineminlength
\newdimen\lastlinemingap

\lastlineminlength=3em
\lastlinemingap=1em

\parfillskip \lastlinemingap plus 
\dimexpr\availablehsize-\lastlineminlength-\lastlinemingap\relax

\edef\ward{\cldloadfile{ward}}

\starttext

\dorecurse{100}{
 \hsize\dimexpr\textwidth-#1mm\relax
 \ward  \par
 \ward  \par
 \startnarrower[left]
 \ward \par
 \ward \par
 \stopnarrower
 \page
}

\stoptext

As it can be done in one place globally and in almost single line, no special 
new command is necessary (as requested originally).

I can see. 

But sorry for my ignorance, as far as I understand, \parfillskip is added to 
the end of the paragraph, so we have rather 
\ruledhbox to 10cm {x\hskip0pt plus 1cm} % without that 'x' at the end, so no 
'glue' distribution is performed

If '\parfillskip 2em plus (hsize - 3*(2em) - 2em)' is specified, I still think 
we should get space of width at least 2em '' which can be extended as 
indicated by hyphens '-' here:

emememememememememememememememememememem
emememememem

So there are two last line lengths extrems:
(shortest)
emememememememememememememememememememem
emememememem

(longest)
emememememememememememememememememememem
emememememememememememememememememem

I slightly modified your example and even with verystrict settings all seems to 
be fine (except too narrow blocks, which is not my use case).

\showmakeup[glue]

\setupindenting[yes,2em]

\edef\ward{\cldloadfile{ward}}

\setupalign[verystrict,hz]

\starttext
\dorecurse{100}{
 \hsize\dimexpr\textwidth-#1mm\relax
 \dimen0=\hsize
 \advance\dimen0 by -8em % 3*em - 2em

 \startnarrower[left]

 \ward \par
 \stopnarrower
 \startnarrower[left]
 \parfillskip 2em plus \dimen0\relax
 \ward \par
 \stopnarrower
 \page
}
\stoptext

The problem here this settings cannot be done globally if there are various 
block widths.

Can I somehow define command globally which takes local block widths?

\parfillskip #1 plus \localhsize-#1-#2, where 
#1 gap width
#2 shortest line width

To be honest, I can't still decipher the reason why the line is not broken...

We basically need:


and I thought this is exactly what \parfillskip ensures
\parfillskip XX plus (hsize - 3*indent)

Or is it impossible in TeX to achieve such rule?

Are there other ways? I can think of:


But in this case that space at the end can be completely swallowed (by negative 
glue). I've tried it in the following example, but there is another problem 
from page 58 - blank line. But my TeX interpretation of the above pseudo code 
may be inappropriate...

\showmakeup

\starttext

\setupindenting[yes, 30pt]

\edef\ward{\cldloadfile{ward}}

%\setupalign[verytolerant,stretch]

\dorecurse{100}{
 \hsize\dimexpr\textwidth-#1mm\relax
 \dimen0=\dimexpr\availablehsize-3\parindent
 \advance\dimen0 by -\parindent

 \parfillskip \zeropoint plus \dimen0
 \ward\hbox to 10pt{}

 \ward\hbox to 10pt{}

 \startnarrower[left]
\parfillskip \zeropoint plus \dimen0
\ward\hbox to 10pt{}

\parfillskip \zeropoint plus \dimen0
\ward\hbox to 10pt{}

 \stopnarrower

 \page
}

\stoptext

Any idea?

Thanks for this! I'd personally prefer more self-decriptive keywords. After

last-line-length-greater-than-four-parindents

In my output I can see overful of the last line on pages 38-46.

How can this happen? Isn't it a clear bug?

What exactly mean 'that amount start interfering with an optimal solution'?
Isn't parfillskip settings taken already into an account when composing the 
paragraph?

Huh. I am puzzled.

I (naively) thought the last line can be somehow isolated in the engine so the 
parfillskip settings doesn't influence the rest (too much). 

I understand your point.

Wow, this is cool visualization!

When \zeropoint is replaced by e.g. 2em, I have what wanted originally.

Could anybody explain drawbacks of such approach? I mean especially that 
overful magic above. I'd like to summarize this topic on Wiki.

thanks, if I understand correctly, this follows my original idea to dynamically 
get the actual block width, simply substract indentation and use the variable 
for defining \parfillskip

I modified it slightly, but it doesn't seem to have desired effect. The last 
line of third paragraph is still too short:

\starttext
\hsize 15.37cm
\input tufte

\parfillskip30pt plus 1fil
\input tufte

\dimen0\hsize
\advance\dimen0 by -60pt
\parfillskip=30pt plus \dimen0
%\tolerance=0   % strictly enforces glue dimensions/stretching - may have 
unwanted side effects

\input tufte

\parfillskip0pt plus 1fil

\input tufte 

hsize is \the\hsize{}\par
dimen0 is \the\dimen0{}

\stoptext

I disabled that tolerance as it caused overflowing the text to the margin. Was 
that the key for the functionality?

[NTG-context] Length range control of the last line of paragraph

2016-03-21 Thread Jan Tosovsky
Dear All,

when paragraphs are separated by indenting the first line (instead of an
empty line), these rules should be followed:

(1) the last line lenght is greater than the left indent


  xx


(2) the last line is shorter than block width

xx
  xx



(ad 1) Some suggestions can be found in
http://tex.stackexchange.com/questions/28357/ensure-minimal-length-of-last-l
ine - but to be honest, it is not very clear to me how to apply it and even
combine with (2)

(ad 2) This can be done using \parfillskip XXpt plus 1fil (where XX is
required gap)

I'd be grateful for any command which would set this globally for all
paragraphs. Partly requested here  http://tracker.luatex.org/view.php?id=885

One could set 
(a) minimum length - default=2*indent
(b) minimum gap - default=indent
(c) minimum block width where (a) and (b) are still to be applied -
default=2*a+b

(ad c) if there are narrower blocks within the document (e.g. blockquotes),
we should still have some room for typesetting the last line content. If the
area width is insufficient, the last line would be typeset without these
(a+b) restrictions.

In meantime, any suggestion how to combine a+b manually are welcome.

Thanks, Jan

Ok, I will publish it on my GitHub account later next week (after necessary 
cleanup).

But to be honest, even minimal XSLT skills are required to customize your 
output. In meantime you can dive into

I used this way some time ago, but it required tweaks in approx 10 xslt files 
to make it compatible with Context MkIV (depends how many elements you use in 
your source, my is not so complex).

For me, XSLT programmer, this is the most natural approach. You can directly 
customize your outputs this way.

I call the transformation directly via command line without that default python 
stuff.

Some general tweaks were sent to the original author who promised merging them. 
He also mentioned planned update in the near future...

[NTG-context] Incorrect placement of visualizer vbox in latest beta

Dear All, 

when the following source is processed in the last Beta (0.85 - 2015.11.19
19:13), that visualizer vbox is shifted upwards.

\showgrid

[NTG-context] Line height - changes in defaults

2015-10-26 Thread Jan Tosovsky
Dear All,

comparing same source generated in 0.80 and in recent 0.81 beta I can see
changes in default line height. See the attached image - that black text is
the current, the grey is the old one.

In my B5 page size there were approx 44 lines while now only 39. It can be
reproduced with this MWE:

\setuppapersize[B5]
\setuplayout[header=0cm, footer=1cm, grid=yes]
\showgrid

% the used font doesn't seem to have any influence on this
%\definefontfamily[palatino][rm][Palatino Linotype][features={default,
quality}]
%\setupbodyfont[palatino, 10pt]

\starttext
\input{tufte}
\stoptext

Is this new value a new default or a bug? In other words, should it be fixed
on my or your side?

Thanks, Jan

If I recapitulate it, it is apparent regression as it worked in 0.79.

That error can be eliminated using a user defined command instead, but that
command doesn't seem to be executed as it doesn't produce desired effect.

\define[1]\ChapterListNumbercommand{\simplealignedbox{\listparameter{width}}
{flushright}{#1}}
...
numbercommand=\ChapterListNumbercommand,
...


Any idea how to fix this? Is that complex numbercommand unsupported any more
and should be replaced with something else? Or should I report it somewhere
and hope for fixing it?

It is not urgent now, I just want to avoid any potential problems introduced
with new tokenizer in place... (boundary conditions).

\setupcombinedlist[chapter][

   margin=2cm,

\starttext

\title{TOC}
\placecontent
\chapter{Preface}

That list definition creates right aligned roman chapter numbers in the ToC,

XSLT 1.0 is capable to handle anything (turing machine).
XSLT 2.0 brings some syntactic sugar.
XSLT 3.0 supports streaming.
 
If you need 2.0 features, you can use Saxon-B 9.1.0.8 (free, but not
maintained any more).

In pure XSLT any variable is fixed and its value cannot be changed. There
are, however, different approaches how to accomplish this. Most common is
defining template parameters and passing the proper values via them, see
below.

 The DocBook is a huge specification, so I guess that a convert

 a small subset.

 From this point of view, Docbook already has a xslt to latex

DocBook has even ConTeXt output
http://sourceforge.net/projects/dblatex/files/dbcontext/

Actually it produces quite obsolete syntax, but it is a good starting point

While my resources are very limited, if any effort in this field will start,
I can share my DocBook/XSLT experience. It could also be a nice GSoC project

Btw, I prefer DocBook over lightweight markup languages (Markdown, Asciidoc)
as latter lack semantics and advanced structuring, which may be limiting in
some projects requiring advanced formatting.

 Which editor(s) (including commercial one(s)) do you usually use to

 IMHO, when one needs to program parts of Ctx source, it's better to use
 TeX source/language combined with Lua or CLD.
 
 Or - is it possible to program anyhow in XML source (Lua)?

Most natural way for XML processing is XSLT transformation (kind of functional 
programming language). 

It is advisable to choose one of standardized vocabulary (DocBook, DITA, TEI) 
what give you a set of out-of-the-box XSLT stylesheets for common output 
formats. And in some tools, e.g. Oxygen, you can get additional level of 
comfort (various schema related functionality boosting your productivity) over 
using your own XML structure.

In case of DocBook you can get even Context output using this XSLT set:
http://dblatex.sourceforge.net/ (there is a dbcontext part in the download 
section)

Actually, this is my way of using ConTeXt, but with various MKIV compatibility 
tweaks. From the same DocBook XML source I am producing epub and also WebHelp 
(set of HTML pages).

 \setbox\scratchbox\hbox{#1}%

I am asking as #1 is consumed somehow and there is just a page reference in
the result index. But that break (\column) works correctly.

I've encountered mising words when comparing hashed params directly. Like if
they are read once, they are not available any more. This was the reason why
I used a helper 'myword' variable in my hack.

But I've just written that code analogically to some other conditions found

 I'd like to express:
 (1) keep always the primary with the first secondary (this seems to be

 (2) keep always the first secondary with the next secondary
 (3) keep always the last secondary with the previous secondary
 
 And similarly for tertiary.

In XSL-FO all these can be set quite easily using keep-with-next/previous
rules placed on first and last items. The complexity behind is left to
XSL-FO processors. 

primary-01 % keep-with-previous  keep-with-next (rules 1  2)
primary-02 
secondary-01 % keep-with-previous  keep-with-next (rules 1  2)
secondary-02
secondary-03
secondary-04 % keep-with-previous (rule 3)
primary-03 % keep-with-previous (rule 3)

The only natural break is between secondaries: 

primary-01
primary-02 
secondary-01
secondary-02
 ( break ) ---
secondary-03
secondary-04
primary-03

In case of three secondaries all is kept together and moved to the next page
as a whole:
primary-01
primary-02 
secondary-01
secondary-03
secondary-04
primary-03

Only if a large block doesn't fit the page, it is somehow broken.

I've investigated several TeX resources but I still cannot find any
convenient solution.

I've found related thread at
http://tex.stackexchange.com/questions/185059/preventing-page-break-after-th
e-first-or-before-the-last-list-item

That solution with \pagecheck looks promising, but it has to be implemented
on ConTeXt/Lua side. It requires adding 'checking' commands to proper
places. 

Only ConTeXt knows the item tree, it can count number of item in every level
and then decide where placing the command is appropriate.

The \testpage or \testcolumn are not IMHO sufficient here. They cannot
prevent breaking after the first primary. The optional value [2] should
somehow be cummulated. Moreover, testing the number of lines is weak as
index entries can be long or with many page references requiring more lines
than one.

\testpage[2] % keep first two together (generalized rule 2)
primary-01
\testpage[2] % (rule 1)
primary-02
secondary-01
secondary-02
\testpage[2] % (rule 3)
secondary-03
secondary-04
primary-03 % how to set rule 3 here?

Maybe some kind of 'samepage' would be better here.

am getting 'Undefined control sequence' error in the console (ConTeXt -
2014.06.22).

\starttext
\startcolumns[n=2]
%First Line
\testcolumn[2]\input{tufte}
\stopcolumns
\stoptext

Any idea what is wrong here?

Thanks, Jan

 I think both cases could be eliminated by establishing a new constraint
 to the 'key letter':
 (1) There must be 0 or at least 3 lines at the beginning of the
 page/column before the Key letter.
 (2) There must be at least 2 lines after the Key letter.
 
 Can this be somehow set in my source file?
 

I've found the corresponding code in strc-reg.mkiv:

\setvalue{\??registerindicator a}#1%
  {\registerparameter\c!before
   % bugged, why does leftskip gets set:
\vskip\lineheight\goodbreak\vskip-\lineheight
   \begingroup
   \useregisterstyleandcolor\c!style\c!color   
   \dontleavehmode
   \strut

   \fi
   \registerparameter\c!command{#1}%
   \endgroup
   \blank[\v!samepage]%
   \registerparameter\c!after
   \par
   \nobreak}

That (2) case can be fixed by a small change:
\testcolumn[3]\registerparameter\c!command{#1}%

But when tested on this MWE, you can see a drawback - the first letter (p)
starts always on the second line (not on the first one):

\setupregister[balance=yes]
\starttext
\index{primary+secondary+tertiary}
\index[primary long]{\dorecurse{5}{primary long }}
\index[primary longer]{\dorecurse{5}{primary longer }}
\input{tufte}
\completeindex
\stoptext

Can this issue somehow be eliminated? Tested on the last beta (with my
patch).

That (1) case is still open. I have no idea how to accomplish something like
this using (Con)TeX(t) syntax :-(

Re: [NTG-context] Experience with DITA XML or XSL/FO

2014-05-25 Thread Jan Tosovsky
Hi Mica,

 I won't make enough (or any) money to justify the very 
 expensive license for Antenna House or XEP, thus they are not
 really an option. I find FOP to be really sub par.

I fully understand. I was exactly in the same situation few months ago and
also found ConTeXt as the only option for my needs. Welcome to the club :-)

 My basic work flow would have to be DITA XML  DITA OpenToolkit (build
 process)  ???  ConTeXt  PDF, where ??? could be some Toolkit XML
 output, XHTML, HTML5, FO.

In your case I would fork 'dbcontext' stylesheets and adapt them to the DITA
vocabulary (reasonable subset). If the Tooolkit is really 'Open', it
shouldn't be so hard to integrate this new stuff into it. The build process
would simply generate the ConTeXt source file. 

Even forking of something already done means lot of work so I suggested
switching to DocBook instead to reduce this effort significantly.

Regards, Jan

What is your real use case? A typical XML based workflow involves XSL-FO -
PDF route using FO processor (Antenna House, XEP, FOP etc). 

Anyway, there are several ways. If you are not locked to DITA yet, I would
strongly recommend switching to DocBook instead :-) You get similar single
source solution with the semantically rich vocabulary that allows you to
produce all typical outputs. Moreover, there is a special project dedicated
to DocBook to ConTeXt conversion 'dbcontext'
http://dblatex.sourceforge.net/releases/download.html although I had to
tweak it for my recent project to ensure compatibility with current ConTeXt
version (MkIV).

This XSLT way is most natural for XML processing, but I understand that
writing XSLT transformation is discouraging for many people.

 Font expansion only, applied to a limited character subset
 
 Is that true? It is applied to any character that you want, of course
 given that you associate expansion factors, but that happens for quite
 some characters in context.

Good point, it should be clarified it is a default vector set, which can be
further customized (extended).
My info is based on this Wiki http://wiki.contextgarden.net/Protrusion
pointing to this source code:
http://source.contextgarden.net/font-ext.lua 

By that subset I mean the table vectors['default']


 Concerning homogenization, context has support for dynamically aplying
 feature (alternates) to improve the look and feel but of course not
 many fonts have multiple variants for glyphs grouped in stylistic 
 alternates so this mechanism is hardly used (only for some arabic).

Yes, I am aware of this, but it is indeed not very obvious from the text.

Thanks for your suggestions,

Jan

[NTG-context] Proper setting of font features for protrusion/expansion

2014-05-04 Thread Jan Tosovsky
Dear All,


e.g. in the last example at http://wiki.contextgarden.net/Protrusion there
is the following definition:

\definefontfeature[default][default][expansion=quality,protrusion=quality]


I understand it overrides default settings and adds these two features.

In my code I use the following shortcut found somewhere:

\definefontfamily[palatino][rm][Palatino Linotype][features={default,
quality}]


Both features works, but I am not sure if I am getting the best quality.

Is there any description what that '[features={default, quality}]' option
really does?


Thanks, Jan

 When you apply features to a font you can set a list of features and
 all of them will be applied.
 
 In the example below you can see both methods, the first text uses the
 new featurelist testfeature which uses default and extends it with
 protrusion=quality. The second text applies the two predefined lists 
 default and quality (which sets protrusion=quality
 and expansion=quality).
 
 \definefontfeature[testfeature][default][protrusion=quality]
 ... 
 \startfont[Serif*testfeature]
 ...
 \startfont[Serif*default,quality]

Aahh, thanks. 

So it is the preset name what confused me here... From my POV the 'quality'
should be replaced with the more specific label. I believe it will enhance
readability the code. I can imagine even 'microtypography' for this kind of
preset.

[NTG-context] Orphans/Widows in the Index

2014-04-23 Thread Jan Tosovsky
Dear All,

in my auto-generated two column index (registry) there are several cases of
widows - it is the last item of the given letter which overflows to next
column/page:

--- (start page) ---
Usti 29 (!!! - I would expect to place here also one or better two
previous entries)

V
Vamberk 18 
...
...


There are also few cases of orphans, but this is not so strange:
...
...
Josef 29

K (!!! - both these lines could be moved to the next
column/page)
Karel 69  
 (end page) -

In my setup I have defined:

\startsetups[grid][mypenalties]
\setdefaultpenalties
\setpenalties\widowpenalties{2}{1} % change to {3}{1} doesn't
help
\setpenalties\clubpenalties {2}{1}
\stopsetups

\setuplayout[grid=yes, setups=mypenalties]

It is hard to provide MWE. Moreover, the content is for private use only.

Is there any remedy for this?

There was mistake in my code:

Maybe parsing is now stricter, which I rather appreciate :-)

I've tested this in new beta and the issue is still there...

Thanks! I was trying \hskip on \setupnotation[footnote] before as I though
this command is preferred in MkIV. My fault. 

When I saw 'hairspace' I was afraid the footnote mark can wrap to the next
line, but after some tests it seems to be a false assumption.

[NTG-context] Footnote mark gap

2014-02-27 Thread Jan Tosovsky
Dear All,

when footnotes are placed after certain accented characters, the
corresponding footnote marks are rendered too close to them:

\starttext
í\footnote{í}
T\footnote{T}
ľ\footnote{ľ}
ě\footnote{ě}
ď\footnote{ď}
\stoptext

Is there any option for making this distance a bit larger?

On the other hand this gap may produce too much white space when placed
after characters like period or comma...

Ideally it could be positioned 'optically' ;-)

Regards, Jan

[NTG-context] [Index] Indenting long primaries after secondaries

2014-02-26 Thread Jan Tosovsky
Dear All,

when a long primary is preceded with the secondary or tertiary index entry,
the second line is not indented as usual, see the following example:

\setupregister[balance=no]
\starttext
\index{primary+secondary+tertiary}
\index[primary long]{\dorecurse{5}{primary long }}
\index[primary longer]{\dorecurse{5}{primary longer }} % but this is Ok
\input{tufte}
\completeindex
\stoptext

How can I avoid this?

Thanks, Jan

 Works as expected here with Sumatra PDF on Windows 8.1. Zoom does not
 change from any link.

My PDF viewer is Adobe Reader XI (11.0.06) on Windows 7. The file is
produced with the current ConTeXt beta (2014-02-14).

It does not work for me. I can confirm it is Ok in Summatra (less strict to
the standard?), but it should work everywhere.

[NTG-context] Interaction's focus for footnotes/index entries

 Hard to solve that one fast .. basically all that gets bound to 
 a next characters makes that next character not protrude. This is 
 not something the engine can solve as it doesn't know what it deals 
 with (so the current behaviour is as it should be).

:-/

 Maybe in a future version of context I can deal with it (as I know how
 to do it, but that doesn't help much now).

I am looking forward to it. 

While I can intervene manualy now {\hskip -0.7mm}Fel..., it is of no use
for dynamic publishing.
