Any news on this?

Just to know if I should wait for a fix, or rather adapt my existing documents.

Hi Pablo,

thanks for testing.

For me it’s still fine with 2017.07.30 19:30.
Not fine with 2017.10.29 15:44 and 2017.11.01 15:58.

[NTG-context] Textbackground offset with multi-col paragraphs

2017-11-02 Thread Thomas Floeren
Hi,

I noticed that with one of the recent betas the right offset of my 
textbackgrounds doesn’t work properly anymore when the textbackground contains 
a multi-column “paragraph”.

A minimal:

\defineparagraphs [TestPar][n=2, distance=7mm]
\setupparagraphs [TestPar][1][width=2em]

\definetextbackground [CB][
location=paragraph,
backgroundcolor=gray,
leftoffset=.3em,
rightoffset=.3em,
topoffset=.3em,
bottomoffset=.3em,
frame=off
]

\starttext

\starttextbackground [CB]
\dorecurse {40} {a b c } 
\stoptextbackground

text

\starttextbackground [CB]
\startTestPar
img
\TestPar
\dorecurse {40} {a b c } 
\stopTestPar
\stoptextbackground

\stoptext


The first box is OK and as expected. But with the second one (containing a 
“paragraph”) the right offset gets miscalculated, so that the text runs into 
the edge of the background.

With a beta from July or so the behavior was still OK.

Thanks for any advice,
best,

I think I have found a problem with the new synctex:

Synctex works perfectly fine – until the first occurence of a \readfile. From 
that point on it always takes me to the imported file, no matter whether the 
text actually is in the imported file or in the main file.

Here is a MWE:

\setupsynctex[state=start,method=max]
\starttext
This line is found by the new synctex.\crlf
This line is found by the new synctex.\crlf
This line is found by the new synctex.\crlf
This line is found by the new synctex.\crlf
\readfile{myInputfile}{}{}
This line is {\em not} found by the new synctex.\crlf
Instead, synctex takes me to myInputfile.tex.\crlf
This line is {\em not} found by the new synctex.\crlf
Instead, synctex takes me to myInputfile.tex.\crlf
\stoptext

['myInputfile.tex' can contain any text, it doesn't matter.]

If I click one of the first four lines in the PDF synctex works fine. The lines 
after the \readfile don't work: Synctex takes me to the end of myInputfile.tex. 
(You can also import 'ward' or 'knuth', in that case synctex takes me to the 
last line _before_ the \readfile.)

I tested the sample with an older Ctx and with --synctex=zipped, and it doesn't 
show the problem.

Hans, thanks for that info.

\setupsynctex[state=start] seems to work fine with Beta 2017.07.05 23:01 - 
LuaTeX 1.05.0 on the Mac.

Whereas I noticed that -the switches -synctex=context or --synctex=zipped have 
completely stopped working with that Beta (or that luatex version).

It throws errors like this on every file I've tested:

lua error   > lua error on line 33 in file ../c-000-s3-e6-front-de.tex:

...eta/tex/texmf-context/tex/context/base/mkiv/node-syn.lua:490: attempt to 
call upvalue 'collect' (a nil value)
stack traceback:
...eta/tex/texmf-context/tex/context/base/mkiv/node-syn.lua:490: in 
function 'luatex_synctex_collect'

function <...eta/tex/texmf-context/tex/context/base/mkiv/pack-obj.lua:127>
(...tail calls...)


So, I guess it is safe to assume that the synctex command line switch is 
finally deprecated?

I see, \WORD does not introduce the whitespace. But I don’t understand why 
\setupwhitespace[none] should do anything with the space after \sym, what \WORD 
doesn’t do.

Tried that, but it does not the same as \setupwhitespace[none]. (It completely 
annihilates any whitespace.)

Compile this to see what I mean:



\definepapersize[Tmp][width=120mm,height=400mm]
\setuppapersize [Tmp]
\setupwhitespace[2\lineheight]

\startbuffer
bla, bla\crlf bla, bla 
\stopbuffer

\starttext

Normal text:

\getbuffer\par
\getbuffer

Itemize, unmodified:
\startitemize 
\item \getbuffer 
\sym{Y} \getbuffer 
\stopitemize

\start
\setupitemize [each][command={\setupwhitespace[none]}]
Itemize with \type{command={\setupwhitespace[none]}}:
\startitemize 
\item \getbuffer 
\sym{Y} \getbuffer 
\stopitemize
\stop

\start
\setupitemize [each][inner={\setupwhitespace[none]}]
Itemize with \type{inner={\setupwhitespace[none]}}:
\startitemize 
\item \getbuffer 
\sym{Y} \getbuffer 
\stopitemize
\stop

\start
\setupitemize [each][nowhite]
Itemize with \type{nowhite}:
\startitemize 
\item \getbuffer 
\sym{Y} \getbuffer 
\stopitemize
\stop

\stoptext


So it seems the only ways to get the desired result are either 
inner={\setupwhitespace[none]} or command={\setupwhitespace[none]}, where the 
first one seems to work correctly and the latter one introduces the whitespace 
with recent Betas. (well, recent = younger than 2 years or so)

Should I change all my existing documents to “inner”?


Thanks,
best,

– Tom

[NTG-context] setupitemgroup and 'command='

2017-05-24 Thread Thomas Floeren
Hi,


I used to use the “command=” parameter when setting up itemize. Now I noticed 
that it introduces a spurious horizontal whitespace after the item symbol when 
the item is of type “\sym{}”.

I also noticed that the problem goes away if I use “inner=” instead of 
“command=”.


Example:

\setuppapersize [A6] 

\starttext
\start
\setupitemize [each][command={\setupwhitespace[none]}]
With \type{\command=}
\startitemize 
\item \dorecurse{20}{bla } 
\sym{Y} \dorecurse{20}{bla } 
\stopitemize
\stop

\setupitemize [each][inner={\setupwhitespace[none]}]
With \type{\inner=}
\startitemize 
\item \dorecurse{20}{bla } 
\sym{Y} \dorecurse{20}{bla } 
\stopitemize

\stoptext


This is with ConTeXt 2017.05.15 21:48. With an older ConTeXt, for example 
2015.01.13 15:54, “inner=” and “command=” deliver identical, correct results.

So, I’m asking, has “command=” been deprecated or is it just a bug?

Or was I using it the wrong way, and “inner=” is the only correct parameter in 
the example above?

Thanks for any info,
Best wishes,

– Tom

Hi,

thanks a lot for sharing your module. I was using my own CLM for ConTeXt, but 
probably I’ll switch to yours now :-)

(I especially love the addition of the callouts (TODO, etc.) to the 
functions/sections menu!)


Some quick observations/suggestions/thoughts:


## Key/value options [] and content arguments {}

The highlighting is broken when there is a space between the command word and 
the [bracketed options] {or arguments}; unfortunately that’s the way I use to 
write it ;-)

It breaks also when there are line breaks involved, which is often the case 
when you write longer, vertical definitions, for example

\setupitemgroup [Legtext] [each]
[stopper=,
before={\setupwhitespace[none]\blank[small]},
style=\bf,
inbetween={\blank[small]},
after={\blank[medium]},
width=1.8em, 
…]


## Command words

\,\;\: : In things like 3000\,mm the whole \,mm gets highlighted. [This may 
ne a legacy problem, as I should better use directly an appropriate Unicode 
space.]

Highlighting should probably not include chars like ()|: For example in 
\starttabulate [|lw(.65\textwidth)|rw(.25\textwidth)|] the whole 
\textwidth)|rw(.25\textwidth)| part gets command-highlighted.


## Default highlight colors

After installation the default highlight colors were all set to black, except 
for comments. (BBEdit 11.1.2 (3733).)
(Though this might be as well a BBEdit problem, since they are still fighting 
highlighting bugs that have been introduced with the color scheme changes of 
vs. 11)


## Commands / keywords

It’s interesting that you are offering both Command words (via pattern) and 
Keywords (custom list). In ConTeXt I always thought of them as the same. I’ll 
surely find a nice use for that :-)


Thanks again,
best,

[NTG-context] backgroundscreen no longer working

2015-05-19 Thread Thomas Floeren
Hi,

backgroundscreen is no longer working here, apparently since the beta 
2015-04-12.

\starttext
% \setupbackgrounds [page] [background=color,backgroundcolor=lightgray]
\setupbackgrounds [page] [background=screen,backgroundscreen=.8]
\input knuth
\stoptext


If I use the pack-rul.mkiv from 2015-04-08 it works again.

Is it deprecated now, or is this just a bug?

Thanks.

[NTG-context] No hyphenation in Bulgarian

Hi,

I have to typeset a Bulgarian document but the hyphenation doesn’t work. The

are present in /tex/texmf-context/tex/context/patterns/)

Do I have to do anything special, in addition to \mainlanguage [bg] ?

Russian hyphenation does work.

Thanks for any advice.

I guess you are asking for the complete *and correct* setup?

\installlanguage

I needed hyphenation in order to typeset the first revision of a translated

Re: [NTG-context] For the Mac users: AppleScript to launch ConTeXt in a flexile way

2015-04-08 Thread Thomas Floeren

Updated (1.2.4)

http://dflect.net/context-typeset-tool/


Changes:

1.2.4 (61) (2015-04-09)

Added the option to enforce SyncTeX via command switch 
`--synctex=zipped`. This will work also where `\enabledirectives 
[system.synctex]` doesn’t work, for example in standalone tex 
documents without components or other input files.


Changed the “typesetting started”-notification emoji from U+231A 
U+FE0F to U+2615 U+FE0F. (Thank you, Apple, for having converted the 
formerly nice Watch emoji into a blemished Apple Watch emoji that 
resembles a piece of coal in 12pt.)


For semantic coherence changed the “typesetting finished” emoji from 
U+1F3C1 to U+1F37A ;-)


Manual: Added note on auto syntax check in Product Mode.

Hi,

SyncTeX usually works for me, but I need to use
 context --synctex ...
(I don't know if --synctex=1 is supposed to work in ConTeX. I believe
that Hans changed the syntax.)

Enabling it inside the document doesn't work for me for some reason.
Hans suggested to put the command inside the first line (modeline or
however that one is called).

But context --synctex filename.tex generally works.



Yes, this is strange. `\enabledirectives [system.synctex]` works for me 
*if* it’s in the product file (no `--synctex` switch needed). It even 
works if it is not in the first line, for example:


Product file:

\startproduct pd-test
\enabledirectives [system.synctex]
\component 01-intro
\stopproduct

Component:

\startcomponent 01-intro
Hi there, can you show me this sentence in the source file?
\stopcomponent


But, indeed, it doesn’t work with single-file documents.

Updated (1.2.3).

http://dflect.net/context-typeset-tool/


Changes:

1.2.3 (60) (2015-03-29)

Added update switch --modules=all.
Removed the update switch --keep.
When updating ConTeXt first-setup.sh will get updated, too.

1.2.3 (58) (2015-03-28)

Added to the GUI (Tools section): Possibility to quickly remap ConTeXt 
directories to the “Beta”/“Current” slots. This should be useful 
if you are switching between more than two ConTeXt installations, for 
example an old Current, an older (but working) Beta and the latest Beta 
from last night. (Formerly you had to rename the ConTeXt folder on disk 
in order to force the script to prompt for new locations.)

Slightly changed wording in main window.
Updated and extended the manual.

component file belonging to that Product file.


I used it for some time, I improved it, and I shared it with a 
collegue who also works with ConText on OSX. We’re still using it, 
many bugs have been fixed and some features were added.


The script proved to be very useful for us and I thought, why not 
share it with the other Mac-ConTeXt people?



So here it is: …

Thanks for the feedback. The description is online now, outside of the dmg

Of course we can put the file on the garden. But I’m not familiar at all with

I don’t know if there are many OSX users interested in the script, but 
considering the fact that the script has only been used/tested by two people

 Hi Thomas,
 
 Thanks for sharing your nice script. You have had a very nice intitiative and 
 I am sure it is going to be very useful for many people.
 
 I did some testing of the script, after having edited some parametrers inside 
 the script. For your information, I am running Mac OS X 10.9.4 on a Mac Book 
 Pro.
 As a first feedback, I should say that I didn’t know how to create a « 
 service » with an Applescript (shame on me…). Finally I found an application 
 named FastScript which allows to create a shortcut for any Applescript, and 
 then I could run your script on a TeX file. Maybe one could add some 
 indications as to how create a « service » with your script.
 
 Strangely the script gives the expected result the first time it is run on a 
 file from within an application such as TeXShop or Smultron, but the second 
 time I call the script, I get a notification saying that something i sgoing 
 on, but then no PDF is created nor a log file. 
 
 However the update part works fine and it is very handy: maybe this part 
 could be made into a small application with XCode, like the application 
 written by Gerben Wierda in order to install a TeX tree some 10 or 15 years 
 ago. 
 
 I’ll do some more testing and then let you know.
 
 Thanks again: OK
 

Hi,

thanks for your feedback!

 after having edited some parametrers inside the script.

Basically there should be no need to edit parameters in the script to make it 
run (except rare cases like strange ctx install locations). The script for 
example is (or should be) capable to find the setuptex files of your Ctx 
Minimals automatically on first launch. Most other parameters are configurable 
from the main options screen, that appears when you launch the script with the 
ctrl-key down. What was it that you had to edit in the script?

 I am running Mac OS X 10.9.4

That should be fine. Same version here.

 I didn’t know how to create a « service » with an Applescript

No need to do this. In the Extras folder you'll find some premade service 
workflows to launch the script. In the description I tried to explain how to 
install the services and how to assign hotkeys (Installation for usage with 
hotkey and modifier keys  Service workflows). Did you see this?

The current version of the script has a rather long delay of 0.6 seconds, that 
means it isn't even necessary to install a service for each modifier key 
combination. You can launch the script with just your standard hotkey and then 
(up to 0.6s afterwards) hold down the desired modifier key, if needed. For 
example you launch the script with cmd-F7 and then you quickly hold down ctrl 
in order to open the main options screen.

 I get a notification saying that something i sgoing on, but then no PDF is 
 created nor a log file.

What does the notification say? 

You can try to pass the typesetting to the terminal (by default is is executed 
in the non-interactive (non visible) shell). To do this you can either mark the 
setting in the main options screen (Run Typesetting in Terminal) or hold down 
opt-shift while (or quickly after) launching the script. Maybe this way it 
becomes more obvious what is going wrong.

 However the update part works fine and it is very handy: maybe this part 
 could be made into a small application with Xcode

Well, this is one of the easier parts of the script. It would probably be 
overkill to rewrite this as Cocoa app, especially because it won't benefit from 
being native (the time-consuming processes in that part are archiving, download 
and making formats). However, I just started learning Swift, so maybe it would 
be a good exercise ;-)

[NTG-context] For the Mac users: AppleScript to launch ConTeXt in a flexile way

2014-07-16 Thread Thomas Floeren
Hello,

Some months ago I wrote a little AppleScript script with one purpose: It should 
be a flexible script to launch ConTeXt typesetting, independently of the text 
editor I’m using and it should be capable to typeset the Product file even if 
I’m currently editing any component file belonging to that Product file.

I used it for some time, I improved it, and I shared it with a collegue who 
also works with ConText on OSX. We’re still using it, many bugs have been fixed 
and some features were added.

The script proved to be very useful for us and I thought, why not share it with 
the other Mac-ConTeXt people?


So here it is:

https://www.wuala.com/tflo/Scripts/Ctx%20Typeset/?key=75QkpizhdpFS


As already said, the main purpose of the script is to launch the Ctx 
typesetting process (short: Ctx) on a file.

Regarding the “a file” the script is very configurable and flexible:

A) It can launch Ctx on a file currently opened in your text editor. It works 
with many text editors (BBEdit, MacVim, TextMate, etc.) as long as the editor 
is the frontmost process.

B) It can launch Ctx on the parent Product file of the component file currently 
being edited. Defining a “Product file” can either be done semi-automatically 
or by hard-definition with two swappable register slots.

C) If no eligible file is opend in an editor it will launch Ctx on the 
currently selected tex file in the Finder.


The options added in the course of time are:

A) Usage of a ConTeXt-Beta or a ConTeXt-Current installation, swappable
B) Typesetting in the non-interactive shell or in the visible terminal
C) Notifications
D) Selection of PDF viewer (Skim, Preview, Adobe, …)
E) Automatically calling the PDF viewer or not
F) Optionally excluding generated PDFs from TM backup
G) luatex or luajitex
H) Beeps or no beeps, and so on
I) Many other things, explained in the Description

Also some features (“Tools”) have been added:

A) Purging files including generated PDFs
B) Info on the used Ctx version
C) Updating the Ctx Minimal (Beta or/and Current) and archiving the old one
D) Syntax Check
E) Make formats, listing fonts, other, …
F) Some extras added in the Extras folder (synctex with BBEdit etc.)
G) Much more in the Description


Some caveats:

A) It works only on OS X

B) The script is designed to work with 10.9 (Mavericks). It should also work 
with 10.8 (old notification via 3rdParty is still implemented).

C) Out of the box it works only with the so called “ConTeXt Minimal 
Installation” (aka ConTeXt Standalone). It won’t work with TeXLive 
installations or any other kind of excessively screwed-up installations. But 
you can go into the script to make it work with anything.

D) In order to get access to any text editor the script makes use of GUI 
scripting: you have to liberate the rights in the corresponding OS preferences. 
This may sound risky to you but the code is open so you can assure yourself of 
what the script does.

E) You have to (and you really should!) read the Description that comes with 
the script.

If you are enjoing the script please share it here, if the script is buggy, or 
doesn’t work for you at all please let me know too, please.

Thank you
best wishes

Thomas

 Hi Thomas,
 
 I had to do some work with regard to this issue recently.
 
 What was mentioned on this list, is, that \fontchar is a command which will

 \setupbodyfont[Myfont,rm,12pt]
 \definesymbol[Q.alt]  [\fontchar{Q.alt}]
 \def\Qa{\symbol[Q.alt]}
 
 The easiest way to get a stable environment is to use the char-names from the 
 font. You can extract a table with all char-names with 
 
 \usemodule[fnt-10]
 \setupbodyfont[Myfont,rm,12pt]
 \starttext
   \ShowCompleteFont{Myfont.otf}{10pt}{1} % fontname, size,columns
   % \ShowAllGlyphs   {Myfont}{48pt}{4} % fontname, size,columns

[NTG-context] sectionhead/sidefloat alignment [mkii/mkiv]

2010-06-18 Thread Thomas Floeren
Hi,

I have a couple of pages where I want to align the sidefloats with the 
sectiontitles. I can’t figure out how to do this properly.

Example:

\setupheads [aligntitle=float]
\setuphead [section]
[before={\blank[3*big]}]

\starttext

\chapter{Head}
\input knuth

\placefigure [right, none]{}
{\externalfigure[nana]}

\section{Head}
\input knuth

\stoptext

The vertical space before the section disappears completely.

(\startfloattext doesn’t work either as the text doesn’t wrap around the 
figure.)



The only workaround I found until now, is fiddling around with the sidefloat 
beforespace and dontleavehmode:

\setupheads [aligntitle=float]
\setupfloats [sidespacebefore=18mm]
\setuphead [section]
[before={\blank[3*big]}]

\starttext

\chapter {Head}

\input knuth


\placefigure [right, none]{}
{\externalfigure[nana]}

\dontleavehmode
\section{Head}

\input knuth
\stoptext


But I guess (hope) there is a much more proper solution around (?)

Thank you for any help/hints.

Thomas

Re: [NTG-context] Script to automatically generate typescripts

Michael Murphy  wrote on Thursday, June 03, 2010 6:52 PM:

 
 Please send me bug reports / feature requests if you use it!



Thank you for this script. I'm sure I'll have good use of it!

I just did a quick test with Myriad Pro, and it works nicely.

Some minor suggestions for usability:

1. If there is no 'typescripts' directory, the typescript and test-file should
be created just in the same directory as the oftsmkr file (so it's easier to
use it anywhere outside the texmf-tree).

2. In the test-file, I had to replace '\start' and '\stop' with '\starttext'
and '\stoptext' (otherwise it doesn't work on my sytem). 

3. The line '\usetypescriptfile [nameofthetypescriptfile]' should be
included in the test-file. So the test-file will use the typescript file if it
is in the same directory as the test-file.

4. All the '\definefontalternative' definitions which you print in the
terminal output could be included in the test-file. So the test-file would
work out-of-the-box. 


Thanks for sharing your script!

Best wishes

when I place an interactive register in mkIV, and then in the PDF click the

\stopbodymatter

\placeregister[index]
\stoptext


Is there something new I have to configure to make it work?

 hyphens (or an en-dash) is too large. I've never seen the advice in a
 typography book to kern two hyphens. I don't know why this is
 implemented like this.
 
 2. The correct method to get a *normal* hyphen is
 
 \setuphyphenmark[sign=normal]
 
 Yes, this is the correct method. It should be enabled by default. If
 somebody wants a larger hyphen (for some mysterious reasen), he/she
 can set it 
 up with
 
 \setuphyphenmark[sign=wide]
 

It seems that the en-dash *can* be used in English in some cases:
'high-priority--high-pressure tasks' from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hyphen


 If the output is not correct it's a bug.
 Yes, it is a bug. Hans already confirmed and said, he'll fix it, but
 it is not 
 yet done, that's why I wanted to remember him. You can try and run
 the example from my first post. With Thomas' workaround the output is
 OK, but it is only a workaround. I (and probably many other users)
 would like to have correct 
 behaviour by default.
 

Concerning the hyphen sign, '\setuphyphenmark[sign=normal]' works as expected
on my system (= normal hyphen sign).
But it was (is?) not usable because, in case of a line break, the hyphen
sometimes was placed at the beginning of a new line.
With '\def\compoundhyphen{-}' the compound hyphen breaks correctly.

[NTG-context] Footnote numbers and leftmargin setup [mkIV]

2010-05-03 Thread Thomas Floeren
 
Hello,

in mkII I use to set my left margins to 0pt. When I do this now in mkIV, I get 
misplaced footnote numbers (at the bottom).

Example:

\setuplayout
[leftmargin=\zeropoint]

\starttext
just text\footnote{foot text}
\stoptext


To get correctly placed numbers I have to either set the leftmargin to = 5pt, 
or leave out the leftmargin key in setuplayout.

Is this a bug or just the mkIV way?

Thomas

 The code for footnotes in MkII and MkIV is different, while MkII use
 it's own
 code MkIV use enumerations for the notes (that's why you can use
 nearly all 
 options from enumerations) and the number is placed by default in the
 left margin
 but why do you set leftmargin to 0pt?
 


If I don’t set the leftmargin, everything is messed up.

Try this with and without leftmargin setup key:

%--
\setuplayout
[backspace=25mm,
cutspace=15mm,
topspace=10mm,
header=\zeropoint,
headerdistance=\zeropoint,
bottomspace=10mm,
footer=5mm,
footerdistance=8mm,
% leftmargin=\zeropoint,
rightmargin=\zeropoint,
height=fit,
width=fit,
location=middle]


\setupfooter [state=start,before=\hrule]
\setupfootertexts
[nice text here][and here]

\starttext
\dorecurse{20}{just text }\footnote{foot text}
\page\null
\stoptext
%---

Without the leftmargin key, text and footer leave the page borders.

Guess I have to to change my way to setup the layout in mkIV(?)

Re: [NTG-context] Hyphenation of composed words

Marco  wrote on Friday, April 16, 2010 4:46 PM:

 Hi,
 
 I've yet another hyphenation problem. I cannot get proper hyphenation
 in 
 composed words. Take this MWE:
 
 \setuplayout [width=1.5cm]
 \starttext
 
 composed-word\par % not hyphenated, as expected
 composed||word\par% wrong: hyphenated, but an en-dash is used,
   % not a hyphen, so [sign=wide] seems to be the default
 composed|-|word\blank % wrong: hyphenated, but the hyphen is at the
   start of % the next line
 
 \setuphyphenmark [sign=normal]% For hyphenation a hyphen is used,
   % not an endash
 composed-word\par % not hyphenated, as expected
 composed||word\par% wrong: hyphen is at the start of the next line
 composed|-|word   % wrong: hyphen is at the start of the next line
 \blank[2*line]
 
 \setbreakpoints [compound]% my workaround
 composed-word\par % correct hyphenation behaviour with hyphen
 
 \stoptext
 
 I hope with the comments the problem is clear. At first the default
 value for »sign« is wrong. It has to be »normal«. But with »normal« I
 cannot get the 
 hyphen at the end of the line, instead it always appeares at the
 beginning of 
 the next line.
 

At the moment I use \def\compoundhyphen{-} instead of \setuphyphenmark.
It seems to work (mkii).

Thomas




 The workaround works but has the disadvantage that everything is
 hyphenated, everywhere. I prevent this at the moment by using bars:
 not-a-composed-word|
 
 Thanks in advance
 Marco

Re: [NTG-context] Context and Windows7

2010-02-02 Thread Thomas Floeren



On 01.02.2010 12:51, Keith McKay wrote:
I want to install ConText on my Windows7 computer.  I thought that it 
would be a good idea if I checked the mailing list archive first, to 
see if there had been any problems with Windows7.  I didn't find any 
messages related to Windows7, but I don't know if this is a good or 
bad thing.  There is 1 page on the wiki regarding a problem with the 
complete configuration of Context in Windows7 and Scite which a user has.




No problems at all with Windows7 (64bit).

I was going to go ahead and download the mswin zip file from the 
pragma web site, but, the zip file just seems to exist there now as 
the minimals distribution, rather than the 'big' distribution I had on 
my old computer (which has gone to that great scrap heap in the sky 
due to a catastrophic failure).


So, I'm looking for advice before I go any further. Should I download 
the minimals and look into an editor other than Scite, which I never 
felt totally comfortable with anyway. 


A good Windows editor is Notepad++. I started out with Scite, then used 
TeXworks for some time also. TeXworks is nice with the integrated pdf 
view and synctex, but is not really comfortable as editor. Notepad++ has 
the same editing comfort as Scite (both on Scintilla) plus a 'friendly' 
gui and some nice features like double editor windows, a very good 
search in all open files, and some very handy plugins (compare, 
explorer, NPPexec ...). Do a search on the list and you will find a 
context-npp package made by one of the list members. It's a bit dated 
(you have to tweak some things) but it will help you greatly to get an 
idea how to set up the editor for context.


Should I just go straight to luatex and MKIV? Are there other options 
available?




From my personal experience: For small quick projects - where you 
immediately see if the needed things work or not - I use mkiv, but for 
longer, format rich, meandering projects its safer (better for the 
nerves) to use mkii . I already started two longer projects with mkiv 
and always had to retreat to mkii because in the course of the work I 
stumbled upon some (for me) unsolvable problems that were crucial for my 
project, and not solved by the development of mkiv within my time frame.
But anyway, also the next big project I will fearlessly begin giving 
mkiv a try, and with a bit of luck I will not fall into a mkiv pit hole ;)

I know that \framed*text* would work in this minimal example, but it does not

[NTG-context] some (older) problems

Hi,

on 2009-06-18 there was a mail on the list with a collection of mkIV problems, 
a big part related to references and captions. (original text below)

I just did a quick re-check with the actual minimals and lua, with the 
following result:

Problems 2), 3) and b) are gone,
problems 1), 4), 5), a) and c) are still there.

I'm not sure if the remaining problems are due to bugs or rather a result of my 
poor comprehension  of certain changes/new things in the mkIV code (especially 
c).

Any help would be appreciated.

 2.) you might have to use --context=experimental without generating
 formats, then manually overwritting luatex binary and finally
 repeating all the steps to build the formats
 
 But there's no guarantee (maybe try that in a separate copy of
 minimals).

Thanks for your help, Mojca.

I installed the experimental minimals and they work fine with luatex 0.42 (the 
'dll-version');
however, the hyphenation problem on XP persists (mac, linux, vista all fine).

\de 
\hyphenation{fräs-schleu-der} 
\starttext 
\hyphenatedword{Frässchleuder} 
\stoptext 

This is LuaTeX, Version beta-0.42.0-2009071600 (Web2C 2009)
ConTeXt  ver: 2009.07.15 21:49 MKIV  fmt: 2009.7.16  int: english/english


On W32TeX I can only find the same lua-'dll'-version (link to 
ftp://akagi.ms.u-tokyo.ac.jp), which already runs (= the one with the 
hyph-problem).

The mingw version ('exe'-version) from Taco (supelec.fr) however I cannot get 
to run, even with the experimental-minimal.


Thanks
Thomas

Re: [NTG-context] Hyphenation list and umlauts

2009-07-09 Thread Thomas Floeren
 
Hi Lutz,

Thanks for your answer.
According to my (reformed) Duden both manöv-rieren and manö-vrieren are correct 
(in prereform orthography manöv-rieren was not allowed); see also 
ei-nan-der|ein-an-der, in-te-res-sant|in-ter-es-sant etc.

But this is not the problem. You can try any other arbitrary example: 

\de 
\hyphenation{fräs-schleu-der schmutz-be-häl-ter-was-ser-stands-alarm} 
\starttext 
\hyphenatedword{Frässchleuder} 
\hyphenatedword{Schmutzbehälterwasserstandsalarm}
\stoptext

Hi Thomas,

after changing lefthyphenmin for de in lang-ger.tex to 2 I was able to 
hyphenate your word
after the Duden rules ma-nö-vrie-ren. I think, in german v can't be a

Well, in my other mail I said that it worked perfectly 
now with 0.40.6, but this isn’t entirely true:

It works perfectly on Mac, Linux and Win Vista. But for 
any obscure reason I can not get it to work on Win XP (to which I’m bound at 
work, unfortunately).

Linux and WinVista are running as virtual machines on 
Mac Intel systems, WinXP is running nonvirtually on PC. 

In order to minimize installation differences I have 
even copied the entire context folder from Vista to the XP machine (including 
binaries, minimals, texmf-local), trashed the caches, remade the formats ... 
but still no UTF hyphenation exceptions on the XP-PC.

Do you - or anybody - have an idea of what the reason 
for this could be?
Some stupid small thing that I have overlooked?
  

Just tried your example code and I also get wrong hyphenation 
on XP.

This is LuaTeX, Version beta-0.40.6-2009070100 (Web2C 2009) 
luatex.web = v13958
MTXrun | current version: 2009.06.14 21:01

Sorry, also no clue what goes wrong...



Maybe I should pose my 
question differently:
Is there anybody on WinXP who can typeset my minimal (below) as 
intended?

(I’m aware that not many people on this list are using MS systems, I 
personally also prefer working systems, but at work I’m (still) restricted to 
MS-XP.
So this problem is of uttermost importance for me. 
I hope the ConTeXt support for MS systems will not be dropped too soon, 
there are still people out there dependent on those OSs)

Here’s the minimal again:

\de

\starttext 
\hyphenatedword{manövrieren} 
\stoptext

Hi,

Unfortunately I can not make work the luatetex.exe from your link.

luatools --generate seems to work fine, but luatools --selfupdate gives 
LuaTools | fileio: unable to locate new script, same for mtxrun --selfupdate. 
context --make cont-en then gives MTXrun | unknown script 'context.lua' or 
'mtx-context.lua'.

I think I have a 'regular' minimals installation (the dll versions of luatex 
work).

Any hint?

Re: [NTG-context] get rid of placefigure and startcombination captions

Hello,

 Another urgent problem:

 how to get rid of placefigure and startcombination captions
 altogether?

 When I use the following, I get too much wasted space after the
 illustration.

 \placefigure
 [fit]
 {none}
 {\startcombination[4*1]
{\externalfigure[serg1][width=4cm]} {}
{\externalfigure[serg2][width=4cm]} {}
{\externalfigure[serg3][width=4cm]} {}
{\externalfigure[serg4][width=4cm]} {}
 \stopcombination}

 Best,
 Vyatcheslav


I'm not sure I understand your problem. If you don't want a caption
and don't want the figure to float, why do you use \placefigure at
all? Just remove the wrapper and put \startcombination etc. directly
into your source file.

Thomas


pay also attention to the syntax
(1) \placefigure[...]{none}
vs.
 (2) \placefigure[...,none]{}

In MkII the two delivered the same output, in MkIV variant (1) will  
reserve some kind of space for the non-existant caption.

I don’t know if this is intended or a bug.

Example:

\starttext
\placefigure[here]{none}{\externalfigure[dummy]}
\dorecurse{30}{blabla }

\placefigure[here,none]{}{\externalfigure[dummy]}
\dorecurse{30}{blabla }
\stoptext

Re: [NTG-context] Lots of problems in mkiv

2009-06-18 Thread Thomas Floeren
2009/6/18, richard.steph...@converteam.com richard.steph...@converteam.com:

 I've recently started using mkiv because of the fonts, but I have found
 lots of things that don't work.
 The trouble is, I don't know if it's just me, or whether I need to go back
 to mkii until things settle down.

 Can someone, PLEASE, tell me if they get any of the following problems with
 mkiv (I've included code snippets):
 Everything below works perfectly in mkii.

 1) References to equations appear as '??' in the final document

 \placeformula[eq:pythag]
 \startformula
 a^2 = b^2 + c^2
 \stopformula
 Pythagoras proposed \in{equation}[eq:pythag].


 2) References to footnotes appear as '??' inside
 \startlocalfootnotes...\stoplocalfootnotes

 \startlocalfootnotes
 This has a note.\footnote[fn]{Footnote.}
 See note \note[fn].
 \stoplocalfootnotes

 3) References to sections are repeated (e.g. reference to section 1 appears
 as '11' or ref to section 1.1 appears as '1.11.1')

 \section[sec:one]{Section one}
 It was in \in{section}[sec:one].

 4) \digits command falls over at periods or commas with \textfont1 is
 undefined (character 58).

 \digits{1.6}

 5) \infull command does not work for abbreviations: falls over with
 Missing } inserted.

 \abbreviation {KF} {Kalman filter}
 Rudolph Kalman invented the \infull{KF}.


 Please help!!

 Richard




Same thing here with 1,3,4,5.
2 works fine.

I've noticed also 3 problems since I switched to MKIV:

a) Floatcaptions are no longer placed:

\externalfigure[dummy]
\placefloatcaption[figure]{blabla}

b) \start...\stopregister results in an error:

hmmpf\startregister[index][identifier]{Hmmpf}\page[yes]
\dorecurse{2}{hmmpf\page[yes]}
hmmpf\stopregister[index][identifier]\page[yes]
\placeregister[index][compress=no]

c) I'm not able to build caption numbers with the chapter number as prefix:
I want for example Fig. 2.6 where 2 is the chapter number and 6
the figure number by chapter. I tried all the options I found for
setupcaptions (at least I think so), but I dont get the chapter number
in the caption.

[NTG-context] Multicol float vertical spacing (MkII)

2009-05-20 Thread Thomas Floeren

Hello,

I have a small problem which nevertheless took already my whole day ...

I'm on a multicolumn page and I have to put (numberd) figures in the  
textflow, at a fix position relative to the text (in this case). No  
sidefloats.


Problem: The vertical space between the float and the following text  
(= after the float) is way too big. I put the floats with force;  
with here its even worse: I get an additional empty space *above*  
the float.


Concerning the different column methods i noticed the following:

\startcolumns: I can influence the vertical space (in general) with  
e.g. blank=4pt in the setups. This solves my problem for the moment,  
but is a bit ugly, because all spaces seem to be affected, also the  
predefined caption innerspace(!)


\startcolumnset: I couldn't find any solution at all, unless grouping  
everything in \startpacked ...\ \stoppacked, but this of course  
removes every and any space. The blank-option isn't present in  
columnsets, right?


Side question: While trying all this i noticed also that the v-spacing  
is perfect when i just use \externalfigure ... (without place...).  
But malheureusement I need the captions. Is there any way to get  
captions with \externalfigure (without float thingies), maintainig/ 
integrating in  the numbering of the normal floating figures?


I would really appreciate if anybody could show me how to adjust/ 
eliminate this ugly (faulty?) after float space without disturbing the  
whole whitespacing on the page.


Thanks in advance,
Tom

Re: [NTG-context] Combining figures

2009-05-09 Thread Thomas Floeren

i think, you just forgot the second pair of curly brackets({}):

{\externalfigure[Ex6a]}{}
{\externalfigure[Ex6b]}{}

for me (mac, context 2009.04.10 18:02 MKII) your code works fine like  
this, the two side by side.

Thanks to Mojca and Tom,
With Mojca’s commands, {\framed[width=5cm]{}}{}, it works for me  
too. But I do not want the figures framed. When I replace that piece  
with {\externalfigure[NameofFigure]}, the figures are placed  
vertically, both with [2*1] and with [1*2].
I have uploaded a folder with a small testfile, which on my Mac  
shows this behaviour, as you can see in the pdf. (For convenience I  
have entered the two possibilities in the testfile, one of them  
commented out.) It can be downloaded from http://web.me.com/blackstone.robert/filechute/Combining_Figures.zip 
.

Maybe there are some other errors in the file that I do not know of.
Thanks for the attention.
Best regards,
Robert Blackstone

[NTG-context] Mailing list

2009-05-09 Thread Thomas Floeren
Is there anything wrong with the mailing list or am I just missing  
something in the config?


I just wrote a mail, and only afterwards I’ve seen on the mail archive  
that the subject/prob was already ok.


It seems that I can’t receive the actual mails in my inbox, only after  
an indeterminable delay they are delivered.
I dont receive either my own mails (yes, the box in the config is  
checked).
I’m receiving the mails via gmail, the client program is the standard  
AppleMail-program.

Does anybody have similar issues?

Thanks

Thomas

Re: [NTG-context] good layout for tech manual

2009-05-08 Thread Thomas Floeren

Hi,

I’m doing also manuals (utility vehicles), graphics are mainly not  
screenshots but drawings (or photos), but I have also chapters which  
consist mainly in screenshots (of a 640px or so  control device).

My messures refere to A5 landscape.
Best solution for me so far: a constant margin of about 45 mm where I  
can put my images/screenshots in; the images go in as  
\placefloat[margin]; so they are always aligned on top and  
respecting each other;). Sometimes I do a  \margintext or \inmargin  
but preferably vers the end of the production.
It happens that on some pages the margin will be empty. For me this is  
ok.
The advantage is, that you’ll rest quite flexible, when you have to  
insert new things or to replace images. The flow-text flow is quite  
good.


In annexe I put my env-file (a bit cleaned-up), so you can get an idea  
(once again: its a5 landscape).


env_rxt_cleaned.tex
Description: Binary data
Although a bit cleaned it contain s much stuff of a context newby, but  
maybe you get the idea.


Hope I could help

Re: [NTG-context] MkII synonyms additional space problem

Thanks for the phantom hint!

I made a macro that I'll put at the beginning of each component file, after
the chapter header:
\def\synCorr{\vphantom{all synonym macros go here}\vskip-\lineheight}

I think this will do it for the moment.

Thanks and Greetings

 Hi Thomas,
 
 I tested your example: indeed in the latest mkii the problem you
 mention appears (however it doesn't in the latest mkiv, nor in mkii
 ConTeXt  ver: 2009.01.18 14:39 MKII  fmt: 2009.2.19  int: english/
 english).
 
 A temporary solution (not in the spirit of ConTeXt though…) is the
 following: add a \vphantom before the first occurence of the synonim,
 that is
 \vphantom{\abs}
 assuming that \abs is already defined: rewriting your example one
 gets: 
 
 \definesynonyms[testAbbrev][testAbbrevs][\infull]
 %\setupsynonyms[testAbbrev][next=\autoinsertnextspace]
 \testAbbrev[abs]{\sc abs}{Antiblockiersystem}

Re: [NTG-context] MkII synonyms additional space problem

This is really great.
Thanks!

I'm aware that actually the MkII probs must be a paine in the ass, as  
youre quite heavily working on the MkIV.
I will change to MkIV as soon as possible, but for the moment I have  
to produce and I have a deadline (30.4.), so MkII is my choice ;) Hope  
you understand this.

Hi,

In the process of a major cleanup and code split I uploaded a beta. Some
important changes are:

- initialization code is ready for upcoming luatex
- language files have been cleaned up
- core-table stuff is renamed to tabl-table stuff
- several changes in file names and splits of files
- for those using helpers, in mkiv now syst-aux is the place to look
- some non used files removed
- some speedup of helper macros (only in mkiv)

On Taco and my machine test docs come out right but there might be problems
left (no tricky new things so solvable fast).

[NTG-context] Consistent row spacing in TABLEs

2009-03-10 Thread Thomas Floeren
Hello,

 

I have a problem to get consistent row spacing in TABLEs when the whitespace
in the document is set to any other than 'none'.

 

Example:

 

% coding: utf-8

\enableregime[utf]

  

\setupwhitespace[medium]

% \setupwhitespace[none] %% with this it works fine

 

\setupTABLE [spaceinbetween=7pt,split=yes]

 

\starttext

\bTABLE

\dorecurse{50}{\bTR \bTD table cell \eTD \bTD table cell \eTD \eTR}

\eTABLE

\stoptext

 

The row spacing after the page break seems to be correct, but on the first
page the vertical space is heavily reduced (as it is in one-page TABLEs).

The only solution I found was to change the whitespace setting to none
before each table.

 

Is there any other workaround? Or am I doing something completely wrong?

 

ConTeXt  ver: 2009.02.25 14:43 MKII

 

Thanks in advance

Thomas

use \leftaligned{\placelocalfootnotes}}, but this
is rather cumbersome. Has anyone a better solution?

Re: [NTG-context] local footnotes

Betreff: [NTG-context] local footnotes

Hi all,

please have a look to the following small table with its own footnotes:

\setupoutput[pdftex]
\starttext
\startlocalfootnotes[n=0,conversion=characters]
\placetable[here][]{}
\placelegend
{
\tfx
\setupTABLE [frame=off]
\bTABLE
\bTR\bTD   1990 \eTD\bTD 1991  \eTD\eTR

\bTR\bTD 2.\footnote[foot:a]{Bezogen auf das Jahresmittel der
Gesamtbevoelkerung} \eTD\bTD
19.0 \eTD\eTR

\bTR\bTD 3.\footnote[foot:b]{Bezogen auf das Jahresmittel der
Stadtbevoelkerung} \eTD\bTD
26.1 \eTD\eTR
\eTABLE
}
{\placelocalfootnotes}
\stoplocalfootnotes
\stoptext

The problem is that the footnotes are printed centered over a very small
linewidth. To avoid this I can put every footnote text in a \hbox and then
use \leftaligned{\placelocalfootnotes}}, but this
is rather cumbersome. Has anyone a better solution?

With many thanks in advance,
Albrecht



Hi,

maybe like this:


\setupoutput[pdftex]
\starttext
\startlocalfootnotes[n=0,conversion=characters]
\placetable[here][]{}
% \placelegend
{
\tfx
\setupTABLE [frame=off]
\bTABLE
\bTR\bTD   1990 \eTD\bTD 1991  \eTD\eTR

\bTR\bTD 2.\note[foot:a] \eTD\bTD 19.0 \eTD\eTR

\bTR\bTD 3.\note[foot:b] \eTD\bTD
26.1 \eTD\eTR
\eTABLE
}
\footnotetext[foot:a]{Bezogen auf das Jahresmittel der Gesamtbevoelkerung}
\footnotetext[foot:b]{Bezogen auf das Jahresmittel der Stadtbevoelkerung}
{\placelocalfootnotes}
\stoplocalfootnotes
\stoptext


This gives footnotes at textwidth.

Greetings

Thomas

Thanks for your answer.

I installed the 2009-01-18 yesterday at home on my mac. Everything works
fine!

Now I re-reinstalled the 2009-01-18 on the windows machine at work, and I
get the same result as before: no gray background.
I even did the texexec --make metafun --standalone from Wolfgang, but
still no background. 

I noticed that on the win system the filename-mpgraph.4000 etc. and
-mpgraph.keep files don't appear at all; they do appear of course with
2008-10-31. Appearently these are holding the code for the background.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance
Thomas



Finally I've found the problem.

In the cont-sys files from 2009-01-18 the following two lines are enabled:

\runMPgraphicstrue
\runMPTEXgraphicstrue

(in 2008-10-31 they are still outcommented)


But to make this work on windows a few additional steps were necessary:

1. texexec --make --alone metafun (as Wolfgang already mentioned)

2. copy the new metafun.mem from \Documents and
Settings\username\.texlive2008\texmf-var\web2c\ to the 'normal' texmf
directory (\texlive\2008\texmf-var\web2c\metapost).

3. Enable write18 in the texmf.cnf

4. remake the formats

Thomas

 I, too, do not understand the
 \definetextbackground
 \starttextbackground
 \stoptextbackground
 commands, even though I tried looking at details.pdf (and core- 
 pgr.tex).
 My particular problem is rather classic, that of illustrating  
 examples, set off from the main text.
 I first used
 \defineframedtext [example]
 [width=fit,background=screen,backgroundscreen=0.7]
 \startexample
 ...
 \stopexample
 and this is appropriate if the example is short enough to fit on one  
 page.
 However, a long example (many paragraphs) that spans more than one  
 page
 runs off the bottom.
 Textbackground seems more appropriate, so I tried
 \definetextbackground [example]
 [location=paragraph,backgroundcolor=middlegray,frame=off]
 \definestartstop [example]
 [before={\starttextbackground[example]},after=\stoptextbackground]
 but this does not work. I tried other variants (such as adding  
 state=start, ...) with no success.
 Does anyone have suggestions on where to look for further  
 documentation or examples of use?


This works for me.

\setupcolors[state=start]

\definetextbackground
   [example]
   [location=paragraph,
background=color,
backgroundcolor=middlegray,
frame=off]

\starttext

\input knuth

\startexample
\dorecurse{4}{\input knuth\par}
\stopexample

\input knuth

\stoptext

For me this works only with context 2008-10-31.

It doesn't work with the beta from 2008-01-18 (no background).

 For me this works only with context 2008-10-31.

 It doesn't work with the beta from 2008-01-18 (no background).

MkII or MkIV?

Can you try texexec --make metafun --standalone.

Wolfgang



MkII.
I just reinstalled the october version; everything ok.
btw: It seems that it still worked fine with a context-beta from 2008-12-01.
