2010-01-19 Thread Horacio Suarez

Thankyou very much for your answers.
Wolfgang, I have the following error when I run that code:
(c:/contextminimal/texmf-context/tex/context/sample/knuth.texerror: 
...tminimal/texmf-context/tex/context/base/typo-krn.lua:121: attempt to index 
local 'before' (a nil value)
I´m using XP
ConTeXt  ver: 2010.01.18 22:43 MKIV  fmt: 2010.1.19  int: english/english
what is wrong?
thankyou for your help.

Horacio Suarez

 Wow!! That is one of the best things I have read in a while - it means we can 
 have proper gesperrten Text with proper hyphenation! Really excellent, 
 thanks a lot for pointing this out, Wolfgang!

Hi,

I tried the following snipped out of curiosity and it gives me the error 
(even with the latest beta)


systems : begin file 1.tex at line 5

(c:/contextminimal/texmf-context/tex/context/sample/knuth.tex) 
(c:/contextminimal/texmf-context/tex/context/sample/knuth.texerror: 
...tminimal/texmf-context/tex/context/base/typo-krn.lua:121: attempt to 
index local 'before' (a nil value)


.

l.11

?



\definecharacterkerning[packed]

\setupcharacterkerning[packed][factor=-.125]

\starttext

\input knuth

\start

\setcharacterkerning[packed]

\input knuth

\stop

\stoptext



What have I missed?

Regards,

I need someting like a negative kerning to reduce some paragraphs length.

i'm not sure what you mean .. narrower?

\startnarrower[right]
...
\stopnarrower

otherwise you need to locally mess around with tolerance and penalties 
or the width of a space

What is the best way to „mess around“? Is it preferable (if changing the text 
or layout is no option) to set a bigger inter-word space or a more tolerant 
expansion or both? 

The latter I tried to achieve, but with no luck (attachment).

Perhaps someone has further/better suggestions …
