I am having a simple problem I can't solve by reading the manuals.
I want to quote a fragment of a book which contains amongst others a
discussion (Plato's Protagoras to be precise). Normally, my book has no
whitespace between paragraphs and small indentation, but here I want a
small amount of whitespace between paragraphs and also narrower. I'd like
to setup some form of quotation paragraph style to use. I started out with
\startquotation but I do not want quotes, so now I use startnarrower, but
what I need is a paragraph style. Maybe another font (1pt smaller) is nice
too. And noindenting while the rest of the book uses indenting.
What I would like to do is something like
and on the inside I get a small whitespace between paragraphs, no
indentation, a smaller font and a narrower textwidth.
My last try was:
in my environment file, but that gave me page breaks as soon as
\startBookQuote was given and the quotes themselves do not receive page
breaks, hence a quote more than one page (I have a few) ends up being a
column of one page but just running from the page.
So, it seems \defineparagraphs is out, because I do not get page breaks
inside the quote. But what should I do?
Thanks in advance,
PS. any sight on a decent ConTeXt book, btw? The manuals and wiki seldomly
give me answers that work for me and often I find ConTeXt rather
counterintuitive, e.g. setupparagraphs for something that is a
table/column kind of thing, or confusing (\define vs \setup vs rest)
