Re: [NTG-context] Usage of \setupfootnotedefinition?

2007-08-07 Thread Matt Gushee
Thanks to Albrecht and Steffen for their quick and informative replies.

I guess \setupfootnotedefinition isn't what I am looking for. It seems 
to mainly be a way to customize the footnote *numbering*, right? What I 
wanted to try was to put footnotes in the margin. My text has a lot of 
footnotes, and a few of them are absurdly long (no, I didn't write the 
book); the conventional layout results at several points in truly 
abominable pages, so I thought I'd try something unconventional. Guess 
I'll have to do it some other way.

Hi Matt,

this is my definition of footnotes:

\def\withdot#1{#1.\kern.3em}
\setupfootnotes[rule=off,numbercommand=\withdot,way=bytext]
\setupfootnotedefinition[location=serried]
\setupfootnotedefinition[before={\hangindent=.5pc \hangafter=1}]
\definedescription[footnotenumbering][numberstyle=\tf,numberindent=no]

Greetings
Albrecht

 Can anyone point me to a realistic example(s) of

 working with, but don't understand precisely how to use it.

Hi Matt,


you may also look at the following, although not too realistic -)

\def\myFNnumber#1{\hskip2em\inframed[width=1em,offset=. 
0em,frame=on,align=left]{#1} \hskip1em}
  \setupfootnotedefinition[command= 
\myFNnumber,indentnext=yes,location=serried]
