Hi Kumar,

this sample works with both Acrobat for Linux and Evince (using LMTX
latest):

\setuppapersize[A9,landscape]
\setupinteraction[state=start]
\setupinteractionscreen[option=max]
\setuppagetransitions[random]
\setupbodyfont[50pt]
\starttext
\dorecurse{25}{%
  \startmakeup[page][style=\bf\ss, align=center]
\recurselevel
  \stopmakeup%
  }
\stoptext

Just in case it helps,

Pablo

Re: [NTG-context] Presentation sections identified by color and mark

2018-02-04 Thread Hans Hagen

On 2/3/2018 10:02 PM, jmm...@us.es wrote:

Hi, I'm starting a presentation with ConTeXt.

I'd like to visually differentiate each section, so I've come up with 
two complementary approaches to do that:


* Use a different color palette for each section, and
* Mark the progress bar to indicate the start of each section.

I've done an small example (at the end) but:

* Last Subject of a Topic take color from next Topic. (e.g. "Some greenB")
* I don't like interactionBar styles provided.

I'd like something like:

|-|-|-|--|--
(horizontal line and a vertical line at the begin of each section and a 
vertical line of different color for current position)


other option I like:

##%%@@HHH&&&
(each letter represents a color. It's a bar with colors marking size of 
text. So it's a series of color rectangles with colors for each section 
and a vertical line for current position)


The main problems are:

* How can I pass the first page of each section to MetaPost?


you need to get the logic ok yourself, something like:

\startuseMPgraphic{PageShape}
StartPage ;
numeric n ; n := \number\nofsubpages ;
numeric m ; m := \number\subpageno ;
if (n > 0) and (m > 0) :
pair pa ;
path p ; p := (100pt,100pt) -- (500pt,100pt) ;
draw p
withpen pencircle scaled 5pt
withcolor "BackgroundColor" ;
for i=0,n-1 :
pa := point(1/n) of p ;
draw (pa + (0,10pt)) -- (pa + (0,-10pt))
withpen pencircle scaled 5pt
withcolor "BackgroundColor" ;
endfor ;
draw point (1/m) of p
withpen pencircle scaled 10pt
withcolor "PositionColor" ;
   fi ;
StopPage ;
\stopuseMPgraphic


* How can I protect background color of SomeGreenB to be green and not 
blue?


just look at the definitions you load ...

\definecolor [MyBackgroundColor] [s=.85]
\setupbackgrounds
  [page]
  [background=color,

I know this is not how presentations should be made, but just sometimes such

there is no module for that but it's quite easy to do: just set up lists

 I do not know what is the best way to do these translations. ConTeXt can

Yeah, using XSLT is pretty straightforward for this.

I've been gravitating to a presentation system where I author
presentations in markdown, and then convert them to an HTML-based
system that results in examples like this:

http://www.users.muohio.edu/darcusb/s6test/test.html

This allows me to focus on content, but very quickly create
high-quality slides.

So I have a kind of default representation of a slide, but I also have
a couple of CSS classes that I attach (via XSLT) to individual slides
depending on the content. For example, if I have a title without any
other text content, then I attach a title class to the slide, which
renders the title larger, and vertical-centered on the page. If
there's a single image, I attach a imgbig class, which floats the
image to the background, and enlarges it to fill the slide.

I would like to be able to do the same with PDF using ConTeXt, ideally
using simple-slides. I know some styles have similar parameter options
for things like image placement, but I'm not seeing anything
equivalent for titles. Is this possible to add?

 you know that I find your idea great. I had been thinking of adding an  
 xml template for simple presentations. your html-based stuff looks

It's just a JQuery-based version of S5, called S6. My fork of it is here:

http://github.com/bdarcus/s6

The background image is just a simple, very small, SVG gradient.

I author in markdown, run the file through pandoc to convert to XHTML 
(though any markdown processor will do), and then pipe it to an XSLT 
that converts it into my (idiosyncratic) S6 XHTML.

 And let us know what  
 exactly it is that you're missing in simple-slides. 

Am looking to be able to (easily) do something vaguely like ...

\SlideTitle{Some Slide}[style=big-title]

.. where 'big-title' gets me the title large and centered 
vertically on the page.

More generally, it's just the idea to be able to adept the 
rendering on a per-page basis with a simple parameter (rather than 
me having to figure out how to write lower-level code). It is 
therefore conceptually analogous to the master slide feature you 
see in apps like Keynote or PowerPoint.

This is just a modification of the Interlude macro

But this is ad-hoc. To integrate this with all styles, this macro 
should have its own background and the user should be able to configure 
the font, alignment, color, etc using a proper interface. So, that will 
have to wait until Thomas and I have more time (basically, the end of 
semester). However, as a stop-gap measure, the above should work. Just 
translate

  Sure you can. Use a background layer, and then you can place the text

 achieve the easiness I mean.
 positioning/adjusting graphics/text using a mouse is much easier than
 do that with keyboard,
 and one should compile/adjust xs and ys many times in order to get the
 right result.

Well, using the keyboard and not the mouse is IMHO one of the TeX (and
LateX, and ConTeXt, and METAPOST, and METAFUN, and tikz) advantages: I
may have repeatable (and uniform throughout the document) results
without having to put a (physical) ruler onto my monitor;)...

My experience shows that the best way to prepare a complicated document,
and especially one containing complicated mathematics/graphics/tables,
is to:
1. think about it
2. sketch it on a piece of paper
3. think a bit more
4. write down the important coordinates etc.
5. type into the computer what I have done in part 4.

or thrice).

 not to say how to create beautiful 2d/3d charts and tables,
 make simple drawings,

metafun or tikz

 apply some advanced features to graphics/texts (like mirror, or
 believable shade)
 Well, I know in theory everything above is doable using TeX,
 but extra amount of work should be done, and the ConTeXt approach
 (using metafun?) quite unproductive.

As I said: the bulk of the work when preparing a good document is
*thinking* (and writing the *text*).  Even two or three hours of typing
don't really make a difference, especially if you get nicer results than
when using mouse (each picture etc. in slightly different position
and/or size...)

 So unless someone develop a good GUI frontend for TeX,
 using TeX for unstructured documents (like presentation slides) is
 always not a good idea.

This might be debatable, but I would risk a following statement: if you
consider your presentation slides unstructured, maybe it's time to
devote more thinking to it...

But a GUI would be nice in fact, especially for tikz.  I agree that
in some cases it would be faster to use it than to type everything.

 Could you please take this discussion somewhere else? This is neither of
 interest for a ConTeXt mailing list, nor is the tone appropriate for this
 list. Thank you.

I don't think this topic is unrelated to ConTeXt (or TeX).
For a long time TeX macro packages has been focused on structured
documents (and it is obviously not WYSIWYG).
If someone can develop a GUI frontend (even a simple one to set
figure/textblock position) for TeX,
it will be as meaningful as what the TeX community is doing now (like
developing TeX engines, formats, source editors, fonts, etc.)
Obviously, all recent GUI frontends (texmacs, texword, etc.) are not
meant to do so, they only help the beginners to structure their
documents, not truly for document design purpose.

As to the tone, i admit it is unappropriate, sorry about that.

 Well, using the keyboard and not the mouse is IMHO one of the TeX (and
 LateX, and ConTeXt, and METAPOST, and METAFUN, and tikz) advantages: I
 may have repeatable (and uniform throughout the document) results
 without having to put a (physical) ruler onto my monitor;)...

 My experience shows that the best way to prepare a complicated document,
 and especially one containing complicated mathematics/graphics/tables,
 is to:
 1. think about it
 2. sketch it on a piece of paper
 3. think a bit more
 4. write down the important coordinates etc.
 5. type into the computer what I have done in part 4.

 This way you don't really have to adjust it too many times (maybe twice
 or thrice).

there is an old saying in China: 站着说话不腰疼.

It is funny to say ConTeXt results will be better... Please try the
grid positioning feature in Keynote or InDesign CS4.
but even the picture are in slightly different position/size, the
viewer wont notice that.

As a contrast, trying again and again for tuning/positioning/compiling
TeX document (and lookup TeX commands on manual) will distract me from
real thinking


 So unless someone develop a good GUI frontend for TeX,
 using TeX for unstructured documents (like presentation slides) is
 always not a good idea.

 This might be debatable, but I would risk a following statement: if you
 consider your presentation slides unstructured, maybe it's time to
 devote more thinking to it...




I admit it is easy to create bulletpoint presentations in ConTeXt
(even easier than Keynote and PowerPoint, \item will do all the
stuffs)
But bear in mind structured presentation handout \neq structured
presentation slides
As far as I know, for most time, the presentation handout should be
structured (point 1, point 2, point3.1, point 3.2 ...) so the speaker
can cover the topic throughly.
However, a structured presentation slide (e.g., bulletpoint) is too
monotonous-dull to put the audience to sleep easily.
Only by careful reorganization of materials can the speaker makes an
awesome presentation.
That's why Steve Job's presentations are all unstructured, but the
audience know clearly what the key points are, and excited-scream
when watching his presentation.
TeX and XML are good for creating structured stuffs (books, journal
papers) where only item point/chapter/float/ref are needed, but
concerning unstructured stuffs like presentation slides, it will be
difficult to do that in just a few \items or \sections.


 But a GUI would be nice in fact, especially for tikz.  I agree that
 in some cases it would be faster to use it than to type everything.

Hi Thomas,
I've played with your presentation module and fond it nice to see.
In order to have it working on my system, I've adapted t-taspresent.tex
to my system needs (ubuntu + sanjoy's texlive repository = context
version:2007.04.17) :
line 169 : commented \usetypescriptfile[type-gyr]
line 554 : changed from a = 2*NOfPages-1 ; to numeric a ; a = 2*NOfPages-1 ;
line 555 : changed from c = PaperHeight/a ; to numeric c; c =
PaperHeight/a ;

HTH. Thanks for providing us both nice model and well commented source.

Olivier,

thanks so much! This helps enormously -- I had a few reports that  
these assignments were troublesome, but couldn't reproduce them on my  
system, so I'm very grateful you provide a solution! (Note to self:  
will have to ask Taco why this works on some systems but not on  
others.) I'll upload a new and (I hope) much improved version this  
weekend!

Best

Thomas

Re: [NTG-context] Presentation help

2006-08-18 Thread Adam Duck
Thanks, all works out nicely.  So, I have another problem.  According
to my friend, every good presentation should highlight the current
section in the table of contents.  So I defined this:

#v+
\def\mycontext#1{%
\edef\stringa{\fetchmark[section][current]}
\edef\stringb{#1}
\strut
\ifx\stringa\stringb
\color[red]{#1}
\else
#1
\fi
}
#v-

This works with

\mycontext{a subject}

and even

\mycontext{\fetchmark[section][current]}

but doesn't work with placelist[section] with this setup:

#v+
\setuplist[section][criterium=all,
symbol=none,
numbercommand=$\bullet$,
textcommand=\mycontext,
pagenumber=no,
width=\baselineskip]
#v-

I think it's because textcommand gets more then just the text as
parameter.  But there is no deeptextcommand in setuplist.

cu, Adam.

Re: [NTG-context] Presentation help

2006-08-18 Thread Adam Duck
Yes, it turns out, this was somehow my fault.  I had spaces in my
section titles, and somehow this doesn't turn out right.  Anyways,
with this command:

#v+
\def\mycontext#1{
\edef\stringa{\ignorespaces\fetchmark[section][current]}
\edef\stringb{\ignorespaces#1}
\strut\ifx\stringa\stringb
\color[red]{#1}
\else
#1
\fi}
#v-

I get it right even with spaces in them.  But this doesn't work if I
have an exclamation mark in a section title -- I don't say it's a good
idea to have an exclamation mark in the section title, but...  Is
there any way to solve this?

Adam Duck wrote:
 So, I showed ConTeXt to a friend of mine.  He said he wanted to try it
 and now -- well, you don't want to know how he swears :).  We're
 trying to do a presentation...

 Anyways, I'm trying to help him...  But I (we) have some problems:

 I managed to write something like this (it's never been so hard to
 write a newline!):

 #v+
 \startsetups{myhead}
 \vbox{%
 \getmarking[sectionnumber]\crlf\getmarking[section]\par
 \hskip12pt\getmarking[subsectionnumber]\crlf\getmarking[subsection]}
 \stopsetups

 \setupheadertexts[]
 \setupheadertexts[\setups{myhead}][pagenumber]
 #v-

 That does, what it should: display section and subsection atop of each
 other.  So, but now, he wants to have an Introduction, which should
 show up in the header but without a number.  I tried \subject but
 \getmarking[section] only returns the section, not the subject (I
 thought they were interlinked somehow, but...).  So, is there any way
 to do this apart from \ifx\getmarking[sectionnumber]{-1} or so?

   
\startfrontmatter

\section{...}

\stopfrontmatter

will provide a mark but not number; so ... provide extra structure
 Next question: is it possbible to align the text of, well, text,
 i.e. the body text, vertically centered on every page?
 \setupbackgrounds won't work here.  On a side note: why does it have
 an align-parameter, then?
   
because it inherits from \framed

\setupmakeup[standard][headerstate=start,align=middle]

\startstandardmakeup
\input tufte
\stopstandardmakeup


 This one is a bonus for me: can someone point me in a direction
 where to start to build a progress meter?  beamerstyle has a nice
 template where it shows the section as text and the subsections as
 open dots (all of them) with the current subsection as a filled dot.

 Well, that would be all, thanks for listening,

2005-08-09 Thread andrea valle
It's probably the problem I had of a strange character inserted before.
Try to open the file with some editor (BBedit, Jedit) and to see if there is a strange character).
If so, then it won't compile. That's ok: it depends on other things. You can refer to the previous mails in the thread.

Re: [NTG-context] Presentation

2005-08-08 Thread andrea valle
First I changed all the tex files and it seemed it changed nothing in 
the output.

But:
Then I discovered that I have two context installations on my machine, 
and that I was modifying the tex files of the the one not used by 
TeXShop.
(The one TeXShop uses is under /usr/..., and I wasn't able to fin it 
through mac finder: finder doesn't list its content. I was modifying 
files lying in the installation of /sw/... folder).

So, everything seems alright.

Thanks a lot to all, now I know about base folder, and about my real 
context engine.


(In any case, I still don't know why I should have two contexts, I only 
installed TeXShop: ?)

Thank you all,

Yes, I opened the file with jedit and saw the small square.
Strange, I copied and pasted form the tex file into the new tex file. 
All with TeXShop.

 Now, I have (luckily) the announced problem with fonts.
I'm not on my machine and I cannot try the changes you all proposed.
As soon as I can (monday), I will test all.

Thanks again (it's a great community)

Hi, Andrea,

Just no panic, everything can be solved.

I noticed two problems:

1. remove \input reich (or replace the reich it with any other tex
file residing in the tex/context/sample/ directory)
(reich.tex is written in Dutch interface, I don't know if that's
intentionally, but as nobody ever uses it, nobody else noticed that
anyway. Probably either the reich.tex itself or at least the demo
example should be changed in the official distribution.)

2. \setupbodyfont[pos,10pt] in s-pre-08.tex
I think this is already a deprecated way for font selecting now, but
as have more problems than knowledge  benefit about/from fonts,
someone else has to tell you what's the best way to overcome this.

Hi Andrea,

I would like to add to Mojca's second comment.  A possible way to deal
with the font problem is to use a font that is already in your system.
I tried using the Lucida Bright Font and it worked. First I copied
s-pre-08.tex into my working directory and renamed it to my-pre.tex.
Then I changed the following line

 \setupbodyfont[pos,10pt]


into
\setupbodyfont[lbr,10pt]

and used
\usemodule[my-pre] instead of \usemodule[pre-08] in my source file.

saji

p.s: If you have the time, a great way to learn ConTeXt is to
 go through the source code of the modules and use the ConTeXt manuals
 to understand them...

Hi Andrea,

I think there are now two different issues causing problems here.

i) There is a font problem with s-pre-08, as noted by Mojca and Saji,
but you don't get far enough to run into it.
On Aug 5, 2005, at 5:07 PM, andrea valle wrote:

ii) You are using funny characters in your file. When I copy and paste 
your input into TeXShop,
I get the same error message, which baffled me quite a bit. Then I  
noticed when I remove the blank line
between % demoTest and \TitlePage, the latter will be become colored 
like a comment. This means that
your line end characters aren't the right ones. You can make this 
plainly visible by opening your file
with something like BBedit. There is a funny character in front of 
\TitlePage. You need to get rid of it.



Unfortunately, I have no idea how you managed to get the character in 
the first place. Are you using MacOsRoman as the encoding

(shows in Save As)?

Try to paste the following into TeXShop (I guess you will then run into 
a font issue later...)

Hi,

I've searching for a dokumentation how to build a presentation, like
in Powerpoint but better :-) with ConTeXt.
I haven't found somethink in the PDF's on the Pragma page and on the
Wiki.



Only the Raw Steps module, which I doesn't understand.
Has somebody information to this theme?


Building a presentation in ConTeXt is not much different than preparing 
an usual ConTeXt document, with some exceptions:


- \usemodule[pre-general] includes some general definitions that you 
probably want to use


- you probably have to use another page dimensions
  \setuppapersize % (already in pre-general)
  [S6][S6]
- you probably want to have full-screen
  \setupinteractionscreen
  [option=max]
- you may want to give some dynamics to the slides
  - growing pictures
- see 13.6/page 514 of metafun-s.pdf
- see animated construction of euro symbol under
  http://contextgarden.net/Sample_documents
  - growing content (3 completely different ways)
- archive.contextgarden.net/message/20040804.222358.500e9264.html
- Patrick's http://levana.de/emacs/elisp/elug/
- David Mungner's RawSteps module (steps, but without JavaScript)
- you may want to have hyperlinks (next page, previous page)
- you probably want lots of pictures
  \externalfigure[name][width=...] (probably surrounded by \placefigure)

- ask Mr. Google for animation or presentation and add
  site:contextgarden.net or site:pragma-ade.com

Just an interesting presentation:
http://www.loria.fr/~roegel/TeX/context-gut2002.pdf (or .tex)

[tex]/tex/context/base/s-pre-*.tex are far the best way to learn a 
couple of things. For a beginner it's a lot new stuff at once (I year 
ago I spent much more time figuring out how to do something than I 
actually spent on the content for the slides), but once you're familiar 
with the basics, these files are pretty clear to undestand.


If you use \usemodule[pre-*], you can build a presentation pretty fast. 
You can change colors or redefine some other things that you see in the 
source of these modules. Later on you can start building your own styles 
or, if you don't need fancy slides at all, all you have to do is to 
define the proper page size, background color, style of section titles, ...


And don't forget about:
- ms-cb.en.pdf
- art-pres.pdf (ignore \presentationstep as it doesn't seem to work)
- cont-eni.pdf
- metafun-s.pdf (or any other metapost material: learning metapost by 
doing, metapost manual, ...) if you want to make some fancy graphics 
by yourself.


Have fun preparing your slides,
Mojca

Thanks a lot (as usual),
It changes nothing: I obtain same results.
So I'm gonna ask something I was going to ask some months ago.

I'm using TeXShop (on OSX 10.3) to create context  files.
It comes with his version of Context (and in fact I have the s-pre- 
files) and I use this internal version to typeset the context files. 
But I have to say I don't know exactly how the whole context works from 
Texshop.

Could troubles depend on this non-standard installation?

\usemodule[pre-22]

\usemodule[pre-cycle]

One thing that you might find useful as an example, though, is a

Hi Jessica et al too,

I can only support what Upendran wrote. A while ago I asked about 
presentation styles on this list,
and got the hints to look at the source of them. You do not even to 
write your own style in the beginning,

you can just overwrite the definitions to change the settings.
I was reluctant to look at source  code at first, but it was
much simpler and more educational I had imagined.

I used TecPlot for those, since our department has a site

For importing the images into ConTeXt, I printed them using Acrobat 5.0's

It does work here. Make sure that your file begins like

\usemodule[s-pre-22]

\starttext

\TitlePage{Indeed}{The Title Page}

\StartSummary{Alpha}{Title}
  A simple and not too long text just to show the topic.
  A simple and not too long text just to show the topic.
  A simple and not too long text just to show the topic.
\StopSummary

etc etc

and that it finds s-pre-22.tex . I does so here without problems, and 
I'm sure it should, but if you still get that error message,
copy s-pre-22.tex into the same directory as the sample file, and try 
again. If it works now, you should reinstall ConTeXt at some point
to make sure you have a working installation, if it doesn't, you need 
the help of somebody more knowledgeable...

 \usemodule[s-pre-22]

The files with s-name and t-name are included with \usemodule[name],
so you only have to try
\usemodule[pre-22]
or
\usemodule[pre-cycle]
(see cont-fil.tex for other synonyms)

Could you provide it to all, please? I experience the same.

Hello,
I tried your example file (by the way I had to change 
\usemodule[pre-04] into \usemodule[pre-05] according to what you 
wanted).

Indeed something has changed since the page number at which each 
\Topic appears, is repeated before the buttons in the interaction 
menu. I tried your file with other versions of s-pre-05.tex (I mean 
those I had in my archives, one of them being from 2003, another from 
2004): the result is the same...
Something has changed maybe in s-pre-00.tex?
Since I don't know how the page number is called I couldn't locate the bug.
Sorry for this :-(

Best regards: OK

Hi Fei,
If possible, prepare a minimal file or set of generally compilable files 
(i.e., with just the latest official context distribution) that 
illustrates the problem. If it's too big for the mailing list, feel free 
to send it to me and I'll try (but do not promise success-).

Best

Hi there,
I used Skdk_style for a presentation, the style file downloaded from
the contextgarden.net. It was all fine with the TexExec 5.2.3. I just
updated TexExec to 5.2.4 version. However, the active link on the
right side stopped working, i.e. after clicking on the title, it wont
go to the title page which it was linked to. Also the page number now
is explicitly shown on the slides too, as you will see the numbers in
black.  Attached is  just one page from the presentation. Any
suggestions how to have it fixed? Thanks a bunch!!

Re: [NTG-context] presentation in ConTeXt

2005-03-31 Thread Dalyoung
I added following two lines in conf-pre-main.tex,
\usetypescriptfile[type-xall] %script file
\usetypescript[myface]  %typeface
In type-xall.tex,

\starttypescript[serif][smmjr][uc]
% Regular variant:
 \definefontsynonym[smMyungjoRegular][smMyungjoR\space 
W30][encoding=uc]
 \definefontsynonym[smMyungjoBold][smMyungjoR\space W70][encoding=uc]
 \definefontsynonym[smMyungjoLight][smMyungjoR\space W10][encoding=uc]
 \definefontsynonym[smMyungjoBlack][smMyungjoR\space W90][encoding=uc]
\stoptypescript

% Start another typescript that associates generic names with
% mid-level names:
\starttypescript[serif][smmjr][name]
 \definefontsynonym[Serif][smMyungjoRegular]
 \definefontsynonym[SerifBold][smMyungjoBold]
 \definefontsynonym[SerifItalic][smMyungjoLight]

% The fallbacks
 \definefontsynonym[SerifSlanted][Serif]
 \definefontsynonym[SerifBoldSlanted][SerifBold]
 \definefontsynonym[SerifCaps][Serif]
\stoptypescript
...
Then, I got a following error,
This is MetaPost, Version 0.641 (Web2C 7.5.3)

to be read again
   smMyungjoR

?
It may be the problem in XeTeX. However, is it related with ConTeXt?
Thank you.
