[NTG-context] avoid resetting of partnumber in appendix

2008-05-11 Thread Suno Ano
How can I avoid that resetting of the partnumber within the appendices?
For example, I have

,[ Example ]
| \starttext
| \part{My First Part within Text}
| \part{My Second  Part within Text}
| 
| \startappendices
| \part{My First Part within the Appendix}
| 
| \stopappendices
| \stoptext
`



Since I used `resetnumber=no' with `\setuphead[part][...]' \part{My
First Part within Text} becomes part 1 and \part{My Second Part within
Text} becomes part 2 in the table of contents ... just what I want.


Now, I would like to become \part{My First Part within the Appendix}
part 3 in the Table of Contents instead of being reset to number 1
again. How do I do this?

 Wolfgang Alternative solution:

 Wolfgang \Definelayout
 Wolfgang   [titlepage]
 Wolfgang   [header=0pt,
 Wolfgangfooter=0pt,
 Wolfgangbackspace=4cm,
 Wolfgangwidth=12cm]

[skipping a lot of lines ...] 


Thank you Wolfgang, it works! However, I tried but did not figure out
how to also change the fontsize from within the \definelayout block. Is
it possible?

I want to change the fontsize to 11pt. I know I could use
\switchtobodyfont but I would rather save myself some typing in the
future and put it in the \definelayout block -- or something else that
does not require me typing it over and over again if \definelayout is
the wrong way to go here altogether (/me is still a novice to ConTeXt).

Same as for the fontsize -- can I demand two columns from within the
\definelayout block instead of always putting \startcolumns[n=2]
respectively \stopcolumns in the actual source?

 Patrick I am not going to promise anything, but the whole texshow
 Patrick family will be refurbished.
Ohhh ... I like how that one sounds :-)

Packaging however is another issue -- being able to apt-getting it might
be awesome. Afaik there is no Debian repository around now that provides
it.

[NTG-context] acroread and reload a PDF

2008-04-22 Thread Suno Ano
I am on DebianGNU/Linux using acroread. Anytime I make a change to some
Context source and compile it into PDF I want to view the result i.e.
reload the already opened PDF. Same as with Firefox/Iceweasel and some
HTML page I work on i.e. hitting C-R reloads the page for viewing.


With xpdf I just hit R and the file (which changed on the disk) gets
reloaded. Am I right that acroread lacks a reload feature? Reopening a
document anytime it changed totally sucks ...

 Yue See Taco's pdf instruction

 Yue while waitting for J. Kew's TeXWorks program:)
I see. Well, I figured I am going to use another (out-of-the-box)
alternative which I am quite fond of already after just using it for an
hour or so.

Evaluating the following form (i.e. hitting C-x C-e with point behind
it) (Info-goto-node (auctex) Viewing) brings one right to the AucTeX
GNU Info manual. In short:

,[ C-h k C-c C-v ]
| C-c C-v runs the command TeX-view, which is an interactive compiled
| Lisp function in
| `/usr/share/emacs-snapshot/site-lisp/auctex/tex-buf.elc'.
| 
| It is bound to C-c C-v.
| (TeX-view)
| 
| Start a viewer without confirmation.
| The viewer is started either on region or master file,
| depending on the last command issued.
| 
| [back]
`

This way xpdf starts and I can move around with shortcuts like e.g. R,
Q, arrows etc. ... just what I wanted :-)

  hi folks, How do they fit together? Is there some sort of
  architecure chart somewhere so newbies can get a hold within a few
  seconds? Luatex == tex context == latex
 luigi ok ?
nope, I do not get it especially for the latex part. What about this:


  +--+
  | ConTeXt, used for|
  | creating the source  |
  | files to luatex  |
  +--+
   ^
   |
   |
   |
   |
   |
  +--+
  | luatex, a bunch of   |
  | libraries and whatnot|
  | which is going to replace|
  | pdfTeX   |
  |  |
  +--+

So where do LaTeX and MkIV fit into this? 


  Secondly, now that it seems MkIV is the new star will all my ConTeXt
  knowledge be obsolete once luatex is going to be used? (Maybe I am
  just making a fool out of myself even asking this but then I am
  totally new to this whole subject so ...)
 luigi A bit here and there, but not all

Which tells me exactly nothing :-) Actually to rephrase what I meant and
to what it boils down:

,[ Question ]
| What will happen to folks like me who just need/want to write great
| documents using ConTeXt?
`

If someone could shed some light onto this, I would be very thankful ...

For the rest
 - I took a look at the wiki, ml etc. but those could not answer my
   question -- usually I try another approach after 2 hours searching
   around 
 - yes, I am with Linux (DebianGNU/Linux)
 - GNU Emacs
 - my adorable cat :-)
 - a whole pile of ConTeXt manuals to read

Of course I will remain a Muse fanboy as well. Muse for my website,
