closesymbol on same line as displayed formula
Hi, I'm bringing up an old question on placing the qedsymbol, or closesymbol as it is also called. This was previously discussed in https://mailman.ntg.nl/pipermail/ntgcontext/2014/079807.html and the purpose of this post is to ask if there is any solution to the problem now. Looking at the file below (output is attached), when the proof ends with a displayed formula, the closesymbol is located one row down. I want it to be (flushright) on the same line as the displayed formula. If I use \placeclosesymbol the closesymbol is indeed put on the correct line, but not flushright. Any ideas? I'm willing to use some command like \placeclosesymbol in the occations when the proof ends with a displayed formula. /Mikael \defineenumeration[proof][ number=no, text=Proof, headstyle={\it}, alternative=serried, width=fit, closesymbol={$\square$}, ] \starttext \startproof This is a short proof. \stopproof \startproof This is another short proof, ending with the formula \startformula 1+1=2. \stopformula \stopproof \startproof This is another short proof, ending with the formula \startformula 1+1=2.\placeclosesymbol \stopformula \stopproof \startproof This is a rather advanced proof, ending with formulas \startformula \startalign \NC 1+1 \NC = 2,\NR \NC 2+2 \NC = 4.\NR \stopalign \stopformula \stopproof \startproof This is a rather advanced proof, ending with formulas \startformula \startalign \NC 1+1 \NC = 2,\NR \NC 2+2 \NC = 4.\placeclosesymbol\NR \stopalign \stopformula \stopproof \stoptext

Hi Mikael, Some time ago, Wolfgang gave a solution which used to work, but I experimented it again when I read your message, and now it does not work anymore… PLease have a look to the files attached (I recovered them from a TimeMachine backup). Unfortnately the same file typeset with the latest beta, and even with the current version from TeXLIve 2016 does not give anymore the same result. Best regards: OK

What is the expected output when the last formula has an equation number? Aditya

Hi Aditya, That is a good point: if the equation numbers are on the right, there would be an ugly effect with the closesympbol near the number, but not if the equation numbers are on the left. Personnaly I avoid finishing a displayed formula with a closymbol (since one uses sometimes the square for the D’Alembertien operator), but sometimes it it comes handy to have the possibility to add such a closesymbol. I don’t know what has changed in recent ConTeXt mkiv which makes the solution cooked up by Wolfgang to not work anymore. Best regards: OK

Thank you Aditya and Otared for showing some interest in this question. I agree with you Aditya that a closesymbol could interfere with an equation number, and I think that one should try hard to reword the proof (or what it could be) to avoid that problem. In my current case it is calculus examples, and some of them naturally ends with a simple calculation, and none has an equation number. As Otared points out, there was a working solution for a while (even though it may have been an ugly hack with eqno), so I guess it is somehow doable. And the closesymbol and closecommand keys are there... I just don't know how to code a working solution (say, not taking care of the problem with equation numbers)... /Mikael
What has changed, Otared, is that Hans reimplemented inner workings of
displayed formulas and in particular its alignment mechanisms, I suppose.
A few months back he had issued warnings that certain things may break
there.
