Re: [NTG-context] Primes far too high in Lucida Type1

2020-03-31 Thread Tim Steenvoorden
Hi Wolfgang,

That 's a pity indeed. I played around a bit and found a dirty hack
using catcodes. Maybe not the best solution, but it works for me.
Posting it here for future reference.

```
\define\textprime{'}
\makecharacteractive '
\define'{\lowerbox{0.3ex}\hbox{\math{\textprime}}}
```

Cheers,
Tim

Hi all,

I’m trying to typeset a document using Lucida Type1 fonts. Primes are 
put way too high. Also, kerning with punctuation characters placed after 
a prime are too wide. This can be seen in attached rendering of below 
example.


 $e,\sigma \rightarrow e',\sigma’$

Is there a quick way to fix this? I don’t have access tot the OTF 
unfortunately. Running ConTeXt TeXlive 2019 on macOS 10.15.3.


I'm sorry for the bad news but without a patch for the font (which can 
probably applied with a goodies file) there is nothing which can be 
done. As the Type 1 version of the Lucida fonts had a few problems in 
the last few years with ConTeXt MkIV I don't think Hans has much 
interest to fix them again (especially when you can expect new problems 
in the future).


The best way here is to use another font or spend the money for the 
OpenType version.


Wolfgang

P.S. Same thing happens with math placed on top of arrows, like here

 $e,\sigma \xrightarrow{i} e',\sigma’$

Like to fix that too.
