Re: [NTG-context] \infull not working

2020-11-18 Thread Nigel King
Thanks Hans for your very prompt reply.

I placed
\overloadmode\plusfour
at the beginning of the file

The example now compiles.

However the command \infull{Ch} now results in CH in small capitals.

Is there something I have misunderstood?

Thanks

Nigel

fixed in next upload ... but ... on my machine, where I run with

 \overloadmode\plusfour % error, \plusthree is warning only

i then will get:

csname overload > fatal error, protection level 4, control sequence 'infull', 
properties 'frozen instance protected', file './oeps.tex', line 4

because \infull is already used by the predefine abbreviations instance

no problem if you don't use that feature

[NTG-context] \infull not working

2020-11-18 Thread Nigel King
Dear Group,
Thanks for your excellent work.

I have just got a new computer and installed Context as I normally do. 
Unfortunately there appears to be a bug, unless I have done something wrong. 
\infull appears not to be working. I have used the following test file which is 
from the wiki but split the line with \infull{Ch} in two to be certain.

\definesynonyms[test][tests][\infull]

\setupsynonyms[test][criterium=all]

 \test{Ch}{Switzerland}

\starttext

The \ITU\ is an 
organisation in \infull{Ch}

The log message has this in it.

[NTG-context] LuaTex on Windows PCs

2019-03-04 Thread Nigel King
Hi All,
I have been using ConTeXt on Macs for >20 years. Having written a particular 
piece of code for others to operate who have PCs, I am now stuck. 

I upgraded to LuaTeX some time ago as recommended on this list.

IT do not seem to be able to install a working version of LuaTeX on PCs. I have 
directed them to ConTeXt Garden but they have had no luck.

Do any of you have guaranteed pointers to a simple installation on PCs? Simple 
editing and creating (from ConTeXt) the PDFs is all that is required.

Thanks

Wow. I learnt about Maxwell's Equation 48 years ago. I never understood it then 
nor on the intervening time despite sometimes helping design antennas. The

[NTG-context] bug in TABLE when there is a complex head

2010-12-06 Thread Nigel King
Hi Developers,
Enclosed is a piece of code that demonstrates a bug in the NaturalTable 
environment when using a complex head in a multipage case. If you run the 
following code you will notice that not only does the head get repeated but 
also the first row of the body of the table. The cause appears to be [nr=2] in 
the head.

I am using
This is pdfTeX, Version 3.1415926-1.40.10 (TeX Live 2009) (format=cont-en 
2010.4.14)  6 DEC 2010 08:32
I do apologise if this is fixed in a later version. Thanks for a great program.

[NTG-context] \in{hyperref}[tableref] at first char of line causes misplaced paragraph

2004-11-11 Thread Nigel King
Hi,
This has bugged me for a number of years and I have only just realised 
the exact cause. Previous requests to solve table and figure spacing 
problems are all due to this I think. Basically the hyperreference in 
the first character of a paragraph mangles the paragraph formatting.

Below is a minimum (I think) file which demonstrates the problem very 
clearly.

\setupinteraction[state=start]
\setupwhitespace[big]
\starttext
\input tufte
\startbuffer[]
\bTABLE[width=2.5in]
\bTR \bTD \input tufte \eTD\eTR
\eTABLE
\stopbuffer
\placetable
  [right]
  [tab:1]
  {A Table}
  {\getbuffer[]}
\input tufte
\in{Table}[tab:1] this paragraph does not format correctly because the 
hypereference is at the first character of the paragraph. Note that the 
spacing (before) is incorrect as well as the width.

T\in{able}[tab:1] this paragraph does format correctly because the 
hypereference is not using the first character of the paragraph.

\input tufte
\stoptext

[NTG-context] linecorrection and paragraph spacing

2004-03-10 Thread Nigel King
Some time ago Hans recommended the use of 
\startlinecorrection...\stoplinecorrection surrounding a figure.

Typically I write a paragraph and then have a double carriagereturn and 
then a floating figure and then a double carriagereturn. The normal 
paragraph space does not always appear so I surround the figure by 
linecorrection and then find that the paragraph spacing is slightly 
larger than usual.

Are there any rules for this. If necessary I will try to produce a 
minimal example although I tend to notice the problem once a document 
has become fairly long.

 Subject: [NTG-context] new tex toy
 
 Hi,
 
 One of the problems with the texmf tree is to get the right
 scripts/documents launched. On linux, runperl/runruby are used for that, on
 windows there was runperl.exe which is now irun.exe. Those scripts/apps
 work ok under most circumstances but not all (especially not when one has
 multiple trees and multiple instances of the tools).
 
 So ... a few weeks ago I made a small tool:
 
 http://www.pragma-ade.com/context/texmfstart.rb   : for those who
 have ruby in their path
 http://www.pragma-ade.com/context/texmfstart.exe  : for those who
 don't have ruby installed and are on windows
 http://www.pragma-ade.com/general/manuals/mtexmfstart.pdf : for those who
 are interested
 
 This tool permits things like (on windows): texmfstart --browser
 examplap.pdf but also calls like: texmfstart texexec.pl optional
 arguments and alike. Several search strategies are applied (see manual).
 The few of you who have seen the integrated context environment (around
 scite) already may have used this tool indirectly. I didn't yet test this
 new gimmick on linux but will do that asap.
 
 The next thing that will be posted is 'texsync' which will synchronize your
 local minimal tex and/or context tree (or part of it, or (part) of the
 documentation) with the current distribution. (i'm playing with that right
 now).

 Hi,
 
 I don't now how many ConTeXt user are aware of the idea of synchronization. In
 the LaTeX area of TeX it has a kind of tradition (Textures, srcltx, ...) for
 dvi output.
 
 For PDF output Jérôme Laurens has now written a package (for use with iTeXMac
 and TeXShop) that makes the advantages from source-output synchronization also
 available for the todays standard PDF. But as so many things in the TeX world
 it is written as a plug-in for LaTeX.
 
 Does anybody has an idea how to use this great achievement also with ConTeXt?
 For those who would like to have a look at Jérôme's great work, I insert his
 code at the end of this email.
 
 Thank you very much,

Re: [NTG-context] Re: texfont and type-tmf.dat

2003-10-14 Thread Nigel King
 Why do you whish to reinstall all the supplied fonts? Or do you just
 want to learn how to use texfont?
I simply wish to use the fonts as most others do (I think) and I am unable
to because of this bug. The normal context fonts do not exist on Gerben's
version. Before Gerben's reorganisation they were made by texfont, this now
does not work because of what I believe to be a simple (I do not understand
Perl otherwise I would have a go at fixing it) bug in texfont. Maybe I am
wrong but I am beginning to find this extremely frustrating (7 months). Once
I realised that somebody was working on texfont 1.8 I had hoped for a fix.

If no developer/Perl expert has Gerbens version of tetex perhaps I could
help debug if a version was supplied to me that printed out the full path
that texfont was looking for files in. The --fontroot option or kpsewhich
lookup appears to be at fault but I have no debugging facilities.

Any suggestions (other than giving up) gratefully received.

TIA

[NTG-context] Re: texfont and type-tmf.dat

2003-10-09 Thread Nigel King
All,
I hadn't expected to create such a confusion so I will try to restate my
problem.

On MacOSX Gerben has provided a restructured version of tetex where the
locations of some files have changed. I am not sure of the detailed reasons
for this but it certainly much easier to keep up to date. For instance he
even provides an updater for ConTeXt to beta or standard using a single
click (I only just found that! Thanks Gerben).

Now the line 
 texfont --en=8r --ve=urw --co=courier --so=auto
Should work but instead gives

 TeXFont 1.8 - ConTeXt / PRAGMA ADE 2000-2003

processing aborted : unknown subpath ../fonts/afm/urw/courier

The subpath exists but maybe at a different root
/usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf.tetex/fonts/afm/urw/courier
thus I presume that --fontroot should be invoked especially since the help
gives me 
  --fontroot=path : texmf font root (default:
/usr/local/tetex/share/texmf.local)
So I try 
texfont --en=8r --ve=urw --co=courier --so=auto
--fontroot=/usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf.tetex/
on one line of course

processing aborted : unknown subpath ../fonts/afm/urw/courier
is the result.

The apparent error is that the --fontroot option doesn't work. Hopefully
that is all I wanted fixed. Texfont has been upgraded with many new options
but this 'bug' remains.

TIA

Re: [NTG-context] texfont and type-tmf.dat

2003-10-08 Thread Nigel King
Dear Gerben or Hans,
I have been away on holiday. So I have lost the result of this thread. Have
you or Hans solved this problem. If so, do I need to upgrade i-tetex or
ConTeXt or both. I would really like to solve this problem and get back to
standard ConTeXt fonts.

TIA

 Yes, this could be. If texexec or any ConTeXt tool does not use texmf.cnf
 values but has hardcoded ideas about where to find stuff (texmf), then the
 rearranging of the texmf directories could have an influence. Hans can
 probably say if this is possibly the case. After all, the rearranging had
 no ill effects whatsoever on TeX or LaTeX, because where files are is
 governed by texmf.cnf and that was adapted as well to reflect the changed
 situation. If there is hardcoded stuff in texexec that is playing a role
 (I am guessing here), making it dynamic by calls to kpsewhich is a good
 solution.
 
 For the rest, the content of texmf.tetex is created by Thomas Esser, not
 me. And there you will find not a complete set of URW but an Adobe set and
 thatis what the discussion is also about. hans is right in stating that.
 
 context can happily work in the texmf tree and does depemnd on its own
 trees; with regards to texfont:
 
 - it will install in either texmf-fonts or texmf-local, depending on what
 is present; the reason for having texmf-fonts is that we need a place for
 commercial fonts (and texmf-local is for my updates, local stuff etc)
 
 - texfonts uses prefixed names (texnansi-* and alike) for several reasons:
 (1) when i buy a font, i wan tto copy the fonts to some temp path, call
 texfont, and have the job done; i don't want to mess around with 8 char
 names that may conflict is i do something wrong;
 
 - another reason for texfonts naming sheme of 'third party fonts' is that
 when one starts slanting fonts (and alike) the kb naming sheme does not
 keep track of what slant is used, which in principle will lead to conflicts
 if one has multiple instances (wherever they may come from)
 
 - for the same reason i keep separate map files for those third part
 collections
 
 - with regards to the fonts on tex live the confusion comes from the mix of
 adobe names and urw type ones. So far whatever i made default, failed on
 someones system, which is why we have now type-akb for the mixed users
 
 - also: context font mechanism is set up in a way that makes it possible to
 combine fonts with minimal calls (once understood -), supporting relative
 scaling and alike; i don't want user sto be dependent on one (few) persons
 to define / install / use fonts.
 
 If that is the case, texfont is a problem because it hard codes locations
 where texmf.cnf is the source for locations and kpsewhich is the way to
 find out about them.
 
 afaik it uses kpsewhich an-r env vars and one can set things on the command
 line as well; there is not so much hard coded in there -)

 i'll send you the adapted core-ntb in another mail
Thanks received and installed
 
 Hans
\pagina seems to be synonymous with \page at least \page appears to have the
same effect. I was hoping for [after={\page[bigpreference]}] but that does
not appear to work. [after={\page[yes]}] does the same as \page. It seems to
be just that the preference does not do anything.

I was also hoping for [split=repeat] but that stops [after=\pagina] from
doing anything.

Thanks again

Re: [NTG-context] texfont and type-tmf.dat

2003-08-07 Thread Nigel King
Hi,
I am posting this message I posted to the 'OS X TeX' group earlier this year
relating to the same issue that Mathew is raising. I had no luck then but am
hoping for more success now there are two of us.

Hans says
'this is under discussion now with thomas/staszek/etc: has to do with urw
metrics not being in tetex by default (they are on tex live)'

However, Gerben's i-Installer installs them here in a different location
than normal. (I think these are the only pair of files that are necessary
for utmb8a to work.)

/usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf.tetex/fonts/afm/urw/times/utmb8a.afm
/usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf.tetex/fonts/type1/urw/times/utmb8a.pfb

I believe that the problem is merely with texroot as I state below. Further
evidence for this is that it nearly all worked before Gerben rearranged the
directories.

Earlier message...
Hi,
Some of my previous font problems here were due to not enabling all of the
font map file in the final configuration of the install. I think someone
else had the same problem. Adobekb.tex is now helping me well, however I am
finding it necessary still to run with the Context font system for some
documents for the moment, and for this texfont has to run to create the
various font files.

Running the single command
texfont --en=8r --ve=urw --co=courier --so=auto
Should work but returns
processing aborted : unknown tex root  /sw/share/texmf/

Clearly texroot is set incorrectly so forcing that
texfont --en=8r --ve=urw --co=courier --so=auto
--fontroot=/usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf.tetex/
Should work but returns
processing aborted : unknown subpath ../fonts/afm/urw/courier

And yet 
/usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf.tetex/fonts/afm/urw/courier/ucrb8a.afm
Exists
This process worked in the v2 version of the i-installer indeed still works
when reinstalled.

I am presuming that the new problem is because of the texmf.tetex that the
texfont perl script is now not able to understand. Perl is beyond my small
brain!

Any help much appreciated

Another question on the same subject. One of my referenced documents is not
pdf but actually an Excel Spreadsheet. Is there any way that can be opened
automatically in Excel?
 Nigel,
 
 Nah, I just happened to have read it recently for the umpteenth time and
 knew where to look.

Re: [NTG-context] \setuparranging 3SIDE

2003-07-24 Thread Nigel King
Willi,
I had a go at this and found two things that I do not understand;

\setuplayout[page] [topspace=5mm,backspace=5mm]
Did not adjust anything until the [page] was removed and then the
incorporated page seems to adjust appropriately. I do not understand the
significance of [page] in this sommand.

Also,
\setuppapersize [XY][A4]
You have changed this to
\setuppapersize [XY][A4,landscape]
This does not appear to work properly? Possibly a bug?
