### Re: [NTG-context] OT: Reflections on usability ConTeXt for typesetting of mathematics

Hello ConTeXist. 0. Do you think that this is only a problem for beginners of ConText or it is a general problem of ConTeXt? 1. How many of ConTeXt users use this tool for typesetting of non-elementary mathematics? 2. Are you satisfied with the results, which produces ConTeXt (thinking

Hi Mikael, as in my first answer use: f''_xx or f''_{xx} if you need both xs' I have tried it at it looks very similar to your LaTeX example. Start another thread about the single prime as bug. Since this one is marked as OT and others more more knowledgeable might not be reading this.

Hi Mikael, Basically, I see your problem with ConTeXts handling of math as a matter of taste! That is you want LaTeX syntax. It is easy enough to get the results you want. The only place where I see a bug is that a single prime is set larger than multple primes. regards Keith Am

Hi, Unless I am mistaken, Cambria is a font available for Windows. I'm using Linux, is it possible to install ? Is it free ? If yes, where can I download it ? Xits, I do not know. Is it possible to put the uppercase = right in math mode with Pagella ? thank you, Fabrice 2014-02-11 9:57

Hi Jaroslav, Math support in ConTeXt is quite good. For beginners there are pages in the Wiki. http://wiki.contextgarden.net/Math I have to admit some pages are dated, but still give valid examples. The Wiki is a good starting point and have links to external example pages. regards

Hi, I do use ConTeXt for typesetting mathematics, and actually I began to use ConTeXt several years ago for my work as a mathematician: up to now I haven’t encountered a single instance in which ConTeXt would not give the expected result, and as a matter of fact the out-of-the-box capabilities

Thanks Otared. Many thanks for your reaction. Even if I would not not make any other statement than yours, so I'm clear at this time that the problem is probably sitting in front of a keyboard and monitor :-). Perhaps the problem is that the Internet is relatively little of mathematical

### Re: [NTG-context] OT: Reflections on usability ConTeXt for typesetting of mathematics

It maybe helpful for beginners if there were sample documents for mathematical typesetting (for the current version of context) that could be used as a start for their own projects. Maybe list members can contribute some for addition to the documentation wiki.
