Thanks Hans, that's good to know. I was seeing issues which seemed to be related to setupheader statements using command=, which are in heavy use in our system because we use this to externalise styles. But it could easily have been something font-related left in some of the commands. I will work

[NTG-context] aligning rotated text in a natural table

2019-06-12 Thread Martin Althoff
I am trying to align rotated text horizontally and vertically in a table cell. Vertically is no problem, horizontally it fails. Non-rotated text is, of course, fine. What can I do to fix the problem? Thanks for suggestions. Martin using: mtx-context | current version: 2019.05.18 10:42 PDF

Hi Willi, thanks for the quick reply. I have the [align=lohi] as part of the setupTABLE statement. Now I tried adding it into the particular cell -- again no effect even if I add "middle". \bTD[align=lohi] \rotate[270]{\switchtobodyfont[8pt]a bit more text} \eTD I suspect the rotate mechanism

Thanks for that Wolfgang. It doesn't seem to work though. The text stays at the left. Meantime I have tried two other approaches. Only an approach using a \framed handles longer lines. My problem with the 3. \framed approach is: how do I get the size of the current table cell? In the MWE I
