Re: [NTG-context] Problem with \columnsetspan

2011-09-27 Thread Marcin Borkowski
Hello,

now that the ConTeXt meetting is over, I hope that someone looks into
this issue (note: I don't want to be rude or ironic or anything-I really
do appreciate you all helping us, poor users, on this list; but this
seems to be a bug in MkIV, so I hope it gets resolved somehow!)

Best,
Marcin

PS. As I wrote earlier, it works in MkII; in MkIV, instead of the span,
I get cs:title][none] Thus, I came to the conclusion that the designer
of a new system must not only be the... in a frame, in one line (with
most of it disappearing to the right), spanning the columns.

 Update: it works fine in MkII, so I am afraid that it might be a bug.
 
  
  BTW: is there a better way to have a title centered on the top of the
  page and then text in columnsets?

Wow, that was quick, thanks!

Now the remaining problem is: when and where is this beta going to be
available?  (I don't need it very soon, but am just curious-last
release notes on contextgarden are from May, I guess.)

Best,

[NTG-context] problem with columnsetspan

2011-07-22 Thread Gordon Parrott


Hi All,

I wonder if you can help:

I have been having a problem with \startcolumnsetspan when I was trying to 
create a magazine layout for a Uk psychodrama organisation.

Out of curiosity ( and in the hope i might learn something) i turned on tracing 
for a short example that gives the problem





here is the source of the test.

\setuppapersize[A4][A4]
\definecolumnset[columntest][n=3]%
\definecolumnsetspan[wide][n=2]%
\starttext
\startcolumnset[columntest]
\input knuth
\tracingall
\startcolumnsetspan[wide]
\dorecurse{3}{\input knuth\par}
\stopcolumnsetspan
\dorecurse{10}{\input knuth\par}
\stopcolumnset
\stoptext


of course it spewed out a huge log file but when looking at it i found this:



\dostartcolumnsetspan [#1][#2][#3]-\endgraf \vskip \zeropoint \bgroup 
\forgetall \ifnum \columnsetlevel \zerocount \else \columnsetspanhsize \hsize 
\nofcolumns \plusone \mofcolumns \plusone \fi \setupframedtexts [cs:#1]

\dostartframedtext [cs:#1][\v!none ]\ifnum \columnsetlevel \zerocount 
\namedframedtextparameter {cs:#1}\c!before \fi \unexpanded \def 
\stopcolumnsetspan {\dostopcolumnsetspan {#1}}
#1-wide
#2-
#3-
{\par}
Lua linebreak_filter failed, reverting to default on line 9


Any ideas? my actual document exhibits the same sort of fault. It used to work 
before I had to update the minimals ( some time ago) when I moved to another 
computer and it failed then.


I must say I really like context and appreciate all the hard work that must 
have gone into it. I know that it is a large system and will take me some time 
to get to grips with. 


Any help would be appreciated.

Cheers
Gordon

[NTG-context] problem with columnsetspan

2011-05-21 Thread Gordon Parrott

Hi
I am fairly new to Context and as a way to learn I am working on a magazine 
layout for a an organisation to which I belong.

I was getting along well ( with information I got from the web site and the 
mail lists).

 I am having a problem with \starcolumsetspan. Until a week or two ago it 
appeared to be working but I have just installed the minimals on a new machine 
and it no longer works with the latest version.

I found this example on the mailing list which give the same results:

\definecolumnset[columntest][n=2,balance=yes]
\definecolumnsetspan[wide][n=2]
\starttext
\startcolumnset[columntest]
\startcolumnsetspan[wide]
\dorecurse{3}{\input knuth\par}
\stopcolumnsetspan
\dorecurse{10}{\input knuth\par}
\stopcolumnset
\stoptext


I'm just wondering if there is anything I might need to do to the above to get 
it to work?

Any help would be greatly appreciated but I am in no hurry for this and could 
wait until it gets fixed in the normal round of releases.


Cheers
Gordon
