to be more independent. So sorry
However,anyhow.. I put it, but it has no effect
I use contex from tetex from SuSe 9.1, should I move to TeXlive+pragma?
Or is just something relate to my .tex file?

the best appoach is to typeset the doc and poster indepently, see 
attached file


it's far from perfect but it shows the idea; now, if you (and maybe 
others) can cook up specs of what you want, i can make a series of 
s-pos-*.tex files that you can then built upon; a kind of on-line 
tutorial in style writing; when done, you can write a myway document an 
article for the maps  -)
not sure if I am ready to understand all but I'll be working on..
on what I consider a rather more advanced approch respect to my
experience than your previous poster template with which I have been
almost able to reproduce (with better typo and easy composition) a
previous openoffice work..

it pas back to play a while with \framed since it is used all over the 
place

\framed[offset=overlay,align=normal]{\input tufte\relax}
\framed[offset=none,align=normal]{\input tufte\relax}
\framed[offset=3cm,align=normal]{\input tufte\relax}
However,anyhow.. I put it, but it has no effect

hm, i'm not sure if that version has layers, often linxu distributions 
are behind

[NTG-context] on posters, again

2004-07-29 Thread Eros Albertazzi
Still struggling to get a poster with Context.
Somehow I am puzzling why almost all my collegue who are accustumed to
write with latex+revtex for chem-math-phys journals then turn to
powerpoint to produce poster and/or presentation, although ConTeXt is
the layout oriented alternative to the well known LaTeX. and switching
tex macro should be easy.
I feel there is a lacking in information and/or guide that preclude its
use within this comunity.
Anyhow my question:
Can I have text within a (settable) margin in  \setlayerframe?
Probably not since margin are defined in  \setuplayout and having a page
layout atop of another one may not make sense
Hereis a latex example of what should be easier (and more durable and
flexible) to accomplish with contex
