[NTG-context] footnotes, blank

2011-07-01 Thread Thomas Schmitz

Hi all,

two questions here:

1. Is it possible to define a blank so that the paragraph 
after it will not be indented (in a document which 
otherwise does have indents)? I looked at \defineblank and 
the new \definevspacing, but couldn't find anything 
appropriate.


2. I want footnotes placed at the bottom of the page so 
that the vertical place is filled (so with a flexible 
vertical space between text and notes), but on the last 
page of every chapter, the publisher prefers the footnotes 
right below the text, not at the bottom of the page. Is 
this feasible?


Thanks and all best

Thomas

You can use the fancybreak module for this.


Ah yes, I see! Thanks Wolfgang, I will use that.

Endnotes at the end of each chapter are easy when you 
use start/stopchapter because you can flush them with the 
“aftersection” key.


No, that's not what I was asking. I want footnotes on 
every page, just the ones on the last page should be moved 
up to the end of the text, not down to the bottom of the 
page. I tried \setupfootnotes[location=high], but when I 
enable it for the entire document, it wreaks havoc 
(footnotes running off the page instead of breaking, very 
inconsistent spacing). So also tried to enable 
location=high manually just for the last paragraph of 
every chapter (and putting this paragraph into a group), 
but that doesn't seem to change anything.

Re: [NTG-context] Continuous chapter numbering without prefixes in documents with parts

Does anybody know how to implement a continuous

II Second part
3 Chapter three


I tried (unsuccessfully) the following:

\setuphead[part][placehead=yes]
\starttext
\part{First part}
\chapter{Chapter one}
\chapter{Chapter two}
\part{Second part}
\chapter{Chapter three}
\stoptext

The here result is something like:
First part
1.1 Chapter one
1.2 Chapter two
Second part
2.1 Chapter three


I tried to get rid of the chapter prefixes by putting
\setuphead[chapter][prefix=no]
but that had no effect whatsoever.

Any ideas?


Yes: search the list; the same question was asked three 
weeks ago, together with a solution:

Sure, the minimal example that I posted already twice

The line before an indexed word appears to be missing 
one character at the end.



You should try to make shorter examples ;)

\setuplayout[width=6.3cm]\showframe
%\let\forcecolorhack\relax
\starttext
This is a short sentence to check \index{test}the 
\tex{index} command.


This is another sentence for the test\index{test}.
\stoptext

The problem when you put the \index command before a 
word is that
it can end in a visible space at the end of the previous 
line.


Wolfgang

Thanks, Wolfgang. Just to confirm: yes, this short test 
does indeed show exactly the effects I was referring to. 
So question to Taco: could some lua trickery somehow get 
around these nasty effects?  Because they really make 
finishing a long project somewhat difficult...

When you need a footnote with a different symbol then

How? I can only see the option of creating a whole new set

Thanks Wolfgang! This starred footnote is often used for

first note, often appended to the title. So I come back to 
my first attempt: this does work, and unless one wants 
unusual symbols in the middle of ordinary footnotes, seems 
like the easiest solution:


\setupfootnotes[rule=off]

This is just a test!{\setupfootnotes[numberconversion=set

Difficult to say of course without knowing the complexity 
of your documents, but just a few thoughts: if you're 
referring to Simon Pepping's Docbook in ConTeXt, this 
was targeted at mkii, so it will probably still work, but 
could be considered obsolete. xml support in mkiv has 
changed a lot, but is much more powerful and flexible. 
It's fairly easy to write a stylesheet to translate your 
xml for typesetting, so I would look at the relevant xml 
documentation (like xml-mkiv.pdf) and make a fresh start. 
You can always refine and elaborate things as you go, and 
if you really hit a wall, there's the list.

Hi Ismael,

for starters, call texexec from the command line, not from

Hi,

One of the changes in mkiv font handling is that from 
now on we have mode=auto as default (beware, this is one 
of those mkiv only options and not supported in the 
generic variant).



Hans,

I may be misunderstanding things, but I can't get my font 
features to work with the latest beta, possibly because of 
this change, or I'm doing something wrong. Here is an 
example:


\definefontfeature[antikwa] 
[mode=node,language=dflt,script=latn,kern=yes,onum=yes]


\starttypescript [serif] [test]
\definefontsynonym [Serif] [file:antpoltlt-regular]
\stoptypescript

\starttypescript [test]
	\definetypeface[test] [rm] [serif] [test] [default] 
[features=antikwa]

\stoptypescript

\setupbodyfont[test]

\starttext

Test 1234567890

\stoptext

This gives me oldstyle figures with the beta of 
2011.02.25, but not with the latest beta. Is this a bug, 
or do I have to adapt my definitions?

Re: [NTG-context] Ideas for restructuring the ConTeXt garden?

complex technical
documents right out of the box of the box without any

ConTeXt requires (at least it did for me) some trouble 
to set it up for
the first time. To some extent this is not because of 
the merit of the
LaTeX design itself but the fact that it is familiar and 
therefore
highly readable to someone used to reading it. It is 
also the point of
departure for a LaTeX user wanting to convert to using 
ConTeXt; hence, i
would imagine many such people would prefer to tweak a 
LaTeX-like
document appearance to better suit their needs rather 
than starting with
something quite different. Certainly, this was the case 
for me; being
basically satisfied with my LaTeX documents but wanting 
more control and
the option to use the advanced features of ConTeXt. 
Having sample set-up
code that emulated LaTeX would have eased the initial 
transition for me.




Pardon my French, but this thread is getting less and less 
useful, probably because it addresses too many issues at a 
time. It is rapidly degenerating from a how to 
restructure the garden into a things I wish others would 
do so my life becomes easier. If someone says I added a 
section to the wiki which explains which ConTeXt settings 
will give a document equivalent to LaTeX XXX class, fine 
- I would consider this superfluous, but it may help some 
people. But even strongly agreeing that somebody else 
should write a tutorial isn't getting any work done. And 
the assumption that most or all ConTeXt users are, at 
their heart, LaTeX renegades is not true, I think. Many 
advanced users haven't used LaTeX ever or in a long time 
and wouldn't want to waste their time on learning it just 
for the sake of such a comparison.


Sorry for being so blunt, but I think this will be more 
helpful if we stay focussed.

Hi Thomas,

you gave me exactly the same hint last week. 


Not only that, but someone gave exactly the same hint to 
Jean in December...


We should
add criterium=cite and criterium=text to the Wiki 
(Bibliography MKIV page: 
http://wiki.contextgarden.net/Bibliography_mkiv).


You are of course right, but I assume Hans is working on 
bibliographies right now (he promised to finish something 
which I need for a project in March, so that leaves him 
another two weeks ;-), so we should maybe wait a bit. 
criterium=cite should work as well, but doesn't right now.


In the beginning it was not clear to me, that 
http://wiki.contextgarden.net/Bibliography refers to the 
MKII implementation of Taco. Therefore, I would suggest 
to rename Bibliography to Bibliography_mkii and create an 
alias Bibliography that redirects to Bibliography_mkiv 
instead. In the wiki pages Bibliography_mkiv and 
Bibliography_mkii the first sentence should state that 
the page is related to mkii/mkiv only and link to the 
other page. Do you think this is reasonable?


I had begun rewriting the page. There is now 
http://wiki.contextgarden.net/Bibliographies which links 
to the other pages, and which is linked to on the front 
page. But another context-related project kept me away 
from this and I never finished this, so fell free to 
shuffle and rewrite things!


I would like to add a section on customising bibstyle 
files and add space for sharing reference styles of 
different journals. What do you think?


Again, that's a very good idea, but we should maybe wait 
just a bit till the dust settles a bit.
 
In general I find it difficult to differentiate between 
mkiv and mkii related  information in the wiki. How could 
we better structure the wiki to make it easier for the 
reader? Disambiguation pages, mkiv/mkii sections, 
independent pages with mkiv/mkii in headerline?
 
Just my 2 cents on this: difficult, because you won't be 
able to make everybody happy. Every now and then, I see a 
new user on the list who asks about installing mkiv and 
doesn't realize that it is not really something which you 
have to install additionally. We shouldn't scare those 
users because in so many cases, mkii and mkiv are exactly 
identical, so that would be an arguments against a too 
stric separation. But of course you're also right that 
it's frustrating for users if they can't find relevant 
information for the areas where the two differ. As long as 
mkiv hasn't settled, this is not easy...


All best

Dear Thomas

I understand, that it's not a good idea, and I've seen 
similar issues on the list

I ran into this by making a deb package of a software 
(that includes context files) with a version that have a 
~ in it, and therefore it makes a folder name having 
this character and context fails.


So i guess the answer is then, no.

Hi Adam,

I didn't want to sound rude - in the end, only Hans can 
decide if this can/should be changed. It's just when you 
think about the complexity of a system like context which 
runs on many different platforms, which involves a number 
of programming languages, which passes names to and fro in 
temporary files and commands - I just would advise to 
stick to characters which you can be sure will be parsed 
correctly by all parts involved. If you want to know a bit 
more about it, have a look at all the efforts Hans makes 
to sanitize font names so they will be found in the mkiv 
font database; taking out all the spaces and periods and 
whatnot. And yet, next week, some smart font designer will 
certainly come up with an even more bizarre name which 
breaks everything. That's all I wanted to say with my 
sarcasm.

Yes, I have encountered this problem many times during the

--generate works too, after that, all the files that have

mtxrun --generate maybe run too early in the process,

[NTG-context] updating in texlive

2011-01-02 Thread Thomas Schmitz

Hi all,

a Happy New Year to all of you! Here's a small question: 
from time to time, as a mental exercise (and because I 
like a backup), I try to bring my texlive installation up 
to date. I have copied these relevant files over from my 
minimal tree:

- luatex binary
- mtxrun
- texmfcnf.lua (with modifications, of course)

then unzipped the latest ConTeXt. Everything works - but I 
get no hyphenation. For a simple test file like:


\mainlanguage[en]

\starttext

\hyphenatedword{philosophically}

\stoptext

I see in the log file

mkiv lua stats : loaded patterns - en::2

but no hyphenation is given. in a run with the minimals, I 
see:


mkiv lua stats : loaded patterns - en::2
mkiv lua stats : language load time - 0.155 seconds , 
nofpatterns: 1


(the last line is not present in the log from texlive). I 
don't see anything wrong in cont-en.log, so I wonder how I 
can find out why the patterns are not applied?


All best

There's nothing ready-made that you can use

[NTG-context] Interesting package for XeTeX

2010-12-21 Thread Thomas Schmitz

Hi all,

on ctt, I just saw an annoucement for a xe(la)tex package 
which I found quite interesting. Here's the description:


Location on CTAN: /macros/xetex/latex/ucharclasses

This package addresses one of the few features where TeX 
still has to play catch-up to
word processing programs: automatic font switching for 
different languages. In fact, it
goes one better than word processing programs and comes 
with macros for inserting
arbitrary code between text from different unicode blocks, 
by making use of XeTeX's little

known intercharclass behaviour.

I was wondering: is something similar possible in mkiv 
yet? I know that with the font fallback mechanism, it's 
trivial to change fonts for unicode ranges, but is it 
possible to change hyphenation patterns (or even insert 
arbitrary code) according to unicode blocks? Would be 
quite helpful for those of us working with different 
scripts.


All best

content to a buffer.


Wolfgang


Aditya, Wolfgang, thanks for your replies. I didn't want 
to bore the list with lengthy explanations, but maybe I 
didn't give enough information. So here comes what I hope 
are the relevant bits: I'm typesetting sheets with 
problems and solutions for a class. Those come from an xml 
database. Unfortunately, there is one catch: depending on 
the type of the problem, some problems don't have an 
explicit solution. The problems are typeset as a numbered 
itemization on page 1; on page 2, I want the solutions, 
with matching numbers. And since I'm lazy, I don't want to 
take care of this myself but have context do it for me. So 
let's begin with the output. I want:


PROBLEMS

1. problem without solution

2. problem with solution

3. problem without solution

4. problem with solution

and then, on a new page:

SOLUTIONS

2. solution to 2

4. solution to 4

So: I have been trying to write a macro that will retrieve 
problems from the database (successful, with help by 
Hans), pack them in an itemize list (successful), and 
store the solution somewhere so it can be typeset on the 
next page (unsuccessful as yet). I thought buffers were 
the natural way to go, but I must admit I didn't know 
about tokenlists. Aditya's suggestion unfortunately 
doesn't seem to work with itemizations. Test files:


This works:

\newtoks\mytoks

\def\TestMacro#1#2#3%
  {\color[darkred]{#1} \color[darkblue]{#2}\endgraf
   \appendtoks \color[darkgreen]{#3} \to\mytoks}

\starttext

\TestMacro{A}{B}{C}

\TestMacro{X}{Y}{Z}

\hairline

\the\mytoks

and this doesn't:

\newtoks\mytoks

\def\TestMacro#1#2#3%
  {\item[#1] #2\par
   \appendtoks \in[#1]: {#3} \to\mytoks}

\starttext

\startitemize[n]

\TestMacro{A}{B}{C}

\TestMacro{X}{Y}{Z}
\stopitemize

\hairline

\the\mytoks

I have absolutely no preference for buffers or 
itemizations or whatever, so if there's a better solution, 
I'm all open. But for the time being, I don't get what I 
want. I'll look into context.tobuffer next...


Thanks for any suggestions, and best wishes

[NTG-context] mkiv: append to buffer

2010-12-18 Thread Thomas Schmitz

Hi all,

i guess this is easy, but I can't find an example to help
me: I want to write a macro that will collect one of its
arguments in a buffer and then collect the other argument 
in a buffer. Difficult to make a minimal example since I 
don't know how to do this, so here is some pseudo-code; 
this is what I want to achieve:


\definebuffer[MyBuffer]

\def\MyGreatMacro#1#2#3%
{\item[#1] #2 \par
 \appendtobuffer{MyBuffer}{\in[#1] #3}}

\starttext
\startitemize
\MyGreatMacro{1}{aa}{AA}
\MyGreatMacro{2}{bb}{BB}
\stopitemize

\page
\getbuffer[MyBuffer]
\resetbuffer[MyBuffer] % so I can reuse the buffer
\stoptext

What I want to do with this is typeset exercises for my 
students, with an itemization for problems and solutions 
which use the same numbering. In real life, this will 
involve xml, but I will try and figure that out myself 
once I know how to use buffers...


It looks like buffers.collectcontent should be able to do 
this, but I can't figure out how to use it. Any pointers? 
Thanks a lot!

[NTG-context] xml: test for attribute

2010-12-13 Thread Thomas Schmitz

Hi all,

I thought I had done this and it was easy, but I can't 
find a solution: I want to test whether a xml tag has an 
attribute and vary the typeset content accordingly. There 
used to be \xmldoifelseempty, but that has been commented 
out (lxml-ini.mkiv). What else could I use? Here's a small 
test that shows what I'm trying to do:


\startbuffer[test]
a
  bsome text/b
  b important=differentmore text/b
/a
\stopbuffer

\startxmlsetups xml:testsetups
\xmlsetsetup{\xmldocument}{a|b}{xml:*}
\stopxmlsetups

\xmlregistersetup{xml:testsetups}

\startxmlsetups xml:a
\xmlflush{#1}
\stopxmlsetups

\startxmlsetups xml:b
\xmldoifelse{#1}{./[...@important]}
%\doifemptyelse{\expanded{\xmlatt{#1}{important}}}
{\color[darkred]{NOTEMPTY: \xmlatt{#1}{important}}\par}
{\color[darkblue]{EMPTY: \xmlflush{#1}\par}}
\stopxmlsetups

\starttext
\xmlprocessbuffer{main}{test}{}
\stoptext

Hints appreciated!

I should think about it a bit. But just a few 
possibilities ... At the

moment I use:
   \startpublication

Options are:


When we think from the bibtex side, it would boil down to 
processing the keyword= key (which is already there in 
the bibtex specification). You could then order your 
publications with terms such as keyword=image 
keyword=article etc.




1.)
\startpublicationlist[images] or 
\startpublications[images] or ...

   \startpublication[k=xy,t=xy]
 
   \stoppublication
...
\stoppublicationlist

2.)
   \startpublication[k=xy,t=xy,list=images]
 
   \stoppublication

3.)
   \startpublication[images][k=xy,t=xy]
 
   \stoppublication

And then
   \placepublications[list=images]

Then \cite would work in exactly the same way (one would 
not need to

provide any extra key to cite itself).

But one would need to think of a proper model to number 
the
references. That is: it would have to be configurable to 
be able to
either number images with roman instead of arabic 
numerals (or with a,
b, c, ...), or to prepend something, like [img1], 
[img2], [img3]

instead of [1], [2], [3]. Or simply let the user do in
\cite{figure}[xy], or to number images with numbers 
bigger than other

references. For example:

Books:
[1]
[2]
[3]
Articles:
[4]
[5]
[6]
[7]
Images:
[8]
[9]

or

Books:
[1]
[2]
[3]
Articles:
[a1]
[a2]
[a3]
[a3]
Images:
[i1]
[i2]

or any other user-configurable option for numbering ...

However, having a properly designed model is better than 
having some
ad-hoc solution that turns out not flexible enough or 
clumsy to use

and buggy later on ...


One syntax would be

\placepublications[filter=image,prefix={img.},option=continue,numberconversion=romannumbers]



And yes, something that would allow splitting references 
across
sections could just as well be used for this. It just 
needs to be
designed properly ... (But section-based bibliography 
could work

without any extra key, right?)

And no, please don't count it as bug report. I just 
mentioned it
because Hans wanted to have a big bunch of everything 
at a single

place.

I suggest to reopen the topic and create exact 
specification before

the actual implementation.


Yes, we can discuss it (on or off list) when it will be 
implemented.

OK, good to know. I'll need a bit more leisure to look at 
your example; here are just a few points:


processing an attribute with the 'xml:' namespace has been 
fixed by Hans very recently (last weekend), so if you 
haven't updated to the latest beta version, please do and 
try again; your syntax \xmlsetsetup{#1}{d...@xml:id='a']} 
is basically right.


Addressing content that has been set in xml anchors is 
possible, but not quite easy. I wouldn't have been able to 
figure it out without Hans. Just to show you an example: 
here's code that in my TEI document will fetch the content 
of a witness list:


\xmlfirst{#1}{root::/TEI/text/front/d...@type=='sigla']/listWit/witne...@xml:id==string.sub('\xmlatt{#1}{wit}',2)]}

The (for you) relevant part is root::/: this is the 
topmost level of your TEI xml document. You then traverse 
all the elements and drill down to a witness element 
whose xml:id attribute is identical to the wit attribute 
of your current element. So element wit=#foo will pick 
up the content of witness xml:id=foobar/witness and 
print bar. This should get you going.


Last point: I don't want to sound negative, but what 
you're attempting is not straightforward and certainly not 
easy stuff. I am currently planning on doing a long-term 
project on editing texts in this manner, and I'm quite 
optimistic that all problems can eventually be solved. But 
if you need short-term solutions, a perfectly typeset 
edition within a matter of weeks, this may not be possible 
right away. E.g., I don't think we really have a solid 
framework yet for a bilingual edition as you envisage it. 
It is possible, but not easy, Hans needs the time and many 
test cases to make the code work. There is a research 
group here in Germany (with public funding) who are 
currently working on xml printing of material of exactly 
this type. I can assure you that for the time being, 
there's nothing out there which comes even close to 
ConTeXt in this area, but we're still at the beginning. 
So: if you want to help and test and be part of this, you 
are more than welcome, but none of us has a magic bullet; 
this is work in progress, not drop-in solutions.


All best

Thomas

[NTG-context] interactive chapter titles in margin

2010-12-01 Thread Thomas Schmitz

Hi all,

for my document setup, I would like to have interactive
chapter headings, and I want the chapter titles in the
margins only; they should not interfere with normal
indentation, spacing, etc. So far, I haven't really found
a solution. Here's a small example (with some code from
the wiki):

\defineinmargin [ChapterInMargin] [outer] [normal]
[distance=0.3em]

\setuphead[chapter][style=bold,
number=no,
expansion=yes,
alternative=text,
distance=0pt,
indentnext=yes,
before={\blank[0pt]},
after={\blank[0pt]},
command=\MyChapter,
page=no]

\def\MyChapter#1#2{\ChapterInMargin{#2}}

\setupinteraction[state=start]
 
\placebookmarks[chapter][all][force=yes]


\setupindenting[medium,yes]

\starttext

\startchapter[title=One,bookmark=One]

\dorecurse{5}{\input knuth}

\stopchapter

\startchapter[title=Two,bookmark=Two]

\dorecurse{5}{\input tufte}

\stopchapter

\startchapter[title=Three,bookmark=Three]

\dorecurse{5}{\input bryson}

\stopchapter

\stoptext

Can anybody provide an idea what to do? THanks!

All best

Ah OK, now I see. But I don't think this is a good idea - 
creating your own file with the same name as files in the

Hi all,
I would like to get some advice concerning a problem, or

nuisance, with internal references.
I am making a longish document with several chapters, 
all of which are
separate .tex-files to be input into the main file, 
which contains all
setups and the skeleton of the document. There are a 
number of cross

references between elements that sit in different files.
With some simple test files I checked that this worked 
and that I use

the proper commands.
However, with the real files it does not work, that is, 
not
immediately. Even after 4 or 5 runs I still get ?? 
instead of page
numbers, and then suddenly things are OK. I have no idea 
what happened
between failure and success and I have no idea what I 
have to do to

get the proper result immediately.
It is a nuisance because I cannot be sure the thing 
worked till I have
checked the entire output after each run, which is 
rather time

consuming.
I’m using the latest version of TeXShop with the 
minimals of july 20,

but older versions show the same symptoms.
Thanks for any advice.

Robert Blackstone

Difficult to analyze, of course, but one thing that 
occurred to me: are you using a proper project structure, 
with the chapters as components, as described in chapter 
2.3 of the manual, or just using \input for the chapters? 
Right now, I'm editing a book (~ 300 pages) with 
cross-references between chapters, and I don't see any of 
the problems you describe.


Btw, the version of TeXshop is irrelevant to the problem, 
but you may want to update your minimals.

[NTG-context] footnotes again

2010-08-03 Thread Thomas Schmitz

Hi all,

I'm sorry I have to ask again about footnotes setup. I 
misunderstood the
style that our publisher wants. Maybe it's easiest when I 
do a bit of ASCII

art (will only work with a fixed-width font):

| texttexttexttexttex |
| textexttexttexttext |
| |
|  9 footnote 9, more |
|than one line.   |
| 10 footnote 10. |

So: the footnote numbers in the footnotes are typeset in a 
box. This box is
just big enough to hold a three-digit footnote number. Its 
left edge is
flush with the text area. Within this box, the note number 
is aligned
flushright. The footnote text itself is one block; this 
block is indented a
fixed amount: the publisher wants all indentations (normal 
paragraphs,

blockquotes, footnotes) to be identical; let's say 16pt.

I played with the parameters of \setupnotedefinition and 
\setupfootnotes
that Wolfgang taught me yesterday, but I just can't find 
the right

combination.

Will wikify!

All best

for some reason, hyphenation for ancient Greek isn't

\setupnote[footnote][margindistance=0em,command=\myfootnotecommand]
\setupnotedefinition[footnote][location=left,hang=1]

\def\myfootnotecommand#1{\hbox to 1.5em{#1}}
