Thank you - that works fine; especially the first, in which the problems
read in order across, rather than down in columns.

cheers,
Alasdair

2011-03-10 Thread Alasdair McAndrew
The trouble arises when I put my tables into narrower, framedtext so as to
be able to force proper indentation:

\starttext

\startitemize[n]
\dorecurse{20}{\item This is a test

\startnarrower[left]
\startframedtext[frame=off,offset=overlay]
\starttables[|l|l|l|l|l|l|l|l|]
  \NC (a) \NC Problem 1
  \NC (b) \NC Problem 2
  \NC (c) \NC Problem 3
  \NC (d) \NC Problem 4 \NC\NR
  \noalign{\blank[3mm]}
  \NC (e) \NC Problem 5
  \NC (f) \NC Problem 6
  \NC (g) \NC Problem 7
  \NC (h) \NC Problem 8 \NC\NR
\stoptables
 \stopframedtext
\stopnarrower}

\stopitemize

\stoptext

On the other hand, the file:

\starttext

\startitemize[n]
\dorecurse{20}{\item This is a test

\starttables[|l|l|l|l|l|l|l|l|]
  \NC (a) \NC Problem 1
  \NC (b) \NC Problem 2
  \NC (c) \NC Problem 3
  \NC (d) \NC Problem 4 \NC\NR
  \noalign{\blank[3mm]}
  \NC (e) \NC Problem 5
  \NC (f) \NC Problem 6
  \NC (g) \NC Problem 7
  \NC (h) \NC Problem 8 \NC\NR
\stoptables}

\stopitemize

\stoptext

breaks across pages properly, but the tables aren't properly aligned at the
left.

cheers,
Alasdair
