What’s *your* unusual use?

I create books, songbooklets, forms, a magazine, my invoices and business letters with ConTeXt and don’t think that’s unusual...

But all the time I run into things that I can’t accomplish on my own, so maybe my use of ConTeXt *is* unusual?

Recently I got solutions for margin notes as I need for "my" German literature/linguistics magazine "Kritische Ausgabe". (There are some edge cases where the mechanism doesn’t work, but I found workarounds.)

At the last meeting some of you helped me a lot with image placement (bleeding floats etc.), so I have now a good foundation for the books I publish, e.g. our series of architectural guide booklets. But there are still some options open to desire (e.g. I never got a reliable placement on the text baseline).

While I like to show off my works, I don’t think my code is good enough for a presentation...

BTW I would love to publish a book about (the making of) historical-critical editions, as far as I found there’s (in German) only one very old one. I enjoyed some interesting presentations about such projects with LaTeX and ConTeXt, but lack the expertise myself. In case you would be interested – our publishing house Dreiviertelhaus would be interested...

Greetlings, Hraban
