comment Converting DNG inline in a ConTeXt document?
Well, right now I'm converting to PDF, but the main question is how to invoke that conversion via lua, since it's not done automagically.

comment How can I use bibtex with google docs to produce RTF files for journal submission?
Okay, not going to put this in an answer cause there has got to be a better solution but: Bibtex for word seems to maybe kinda sorta suggest that this works?

comment How can I use bibtex with google docs to produce RTF files for journal submission?
Yes, we have. We also have something like 5 different journals, conferences, and other cited nonsense that require Word/rtf that we'll need to submit other things to. All with... incomplete guidelines. Apparently they don't trust authors to ... typeset.

I will fully accept answers of "don't do it this way" so long as they can provide a good gesture in the direction that does work.

comment How do I get ConTeXt to produce pdf files in one directory, the aux files in a second, and take the .tex files from a third?
2nd==3rd separation most important. Or some answer indicating that "you're doing it wrong. If you just organize your files like such and such, you'll be fine."

comment How do I add a static number to \recurselevel?
I couldn't figure out how to do stepwiserecurse nested inside a combination as a function out of an outer dorecurse.

Is this the correct way to solve this problem?

Can someone tag this layers, and/or add other tags to fit? I'm not entirely sure of the tag ontology over here.

Do you have newlines before the symbols?

comment Where is TeXfont in TeX Live 2012?
I'm pretty sure I'm doing it wrong. Looking at other pages I find (Building the Font Database) [wiki.contextgarden.net/…

comment How can I effectively diff 2 versions of a book produced by ConTeXt?
Well, part of it is getting diffable output from context or some (unknown?) aspect of context that could do diffing trivially.

comment How can I effectively diff 2 versions of a book produced by ConTeXt?
I've tried that with very poor results. I think the answer is, as you note: "Don't" but I'm hoping to be surprised.

comment How can I tell ConTeXt to automatically rotate images to fit their dimensions most accurately?
Floating, I believe. I'm using the "externalfigure" command and they are large enough to not reflow. \placefigure[] [fig:i2] {The SDFN Diagram for Interview 2} {\externalfigure[Chapter4/graphs/i2_rot.png][factor=fit,frame=on]}

comment How do I install context modules in the ubuntu distribution of ConTeXt
For this problem, I couldn't run the current version of ConTeXt standalone because I was trying to work around a bug where the equivalent of includes weren't being recognized. My answer though shows my final fix.

I would love it if someone gave a better answer or something. But this is what my research indicates?

comment Improving the legibility of a pdfTeX produced PDF on Google Docs
Updated font to Gentium, as it's a nice free font that's remarkably pretty. I invoked it with the simplefonts module and enabled it with: \setmainfont[GentiumPlus][protrusion=quality,expansion=quality] to allow for protrusion. Just providing a record here of my solution.

Oooh, I get to follow the instructions for "installing Expert Fonts..." Thanks! :) (only a little bit of sarcasm there, genuine thanks as well.)

Do you have a link to the minion pro test document? Also, thanks for the fantastic answer :)
