Sample XLingPaper Documents

There are three sample XLingPaper documents.  Click on the one you want to download.

ZapNumRevised-2.19.0.zip Sample paper
ZapotecoDeLachixío-2.15.0.zip Sample book
XLingPaper2-12-0SampleDocument-SVCZPronouns.zip Sample paper used in some demo movies

 


Small Caps Fonts

A common convention for typesetting grammatical glosses is to use what typesetters call small capitals (also known as small caps).  While some programs like Microsoft Word can render regular fonts (e.g. Times New Roman) as small caps, other programs do not.  The makers of these programs prefer to require the user to employ a true small cap font.  For this reason, we offer two such small cap fonts for your use.  Please note the license that is included with this font family.

Click on the one you wish to download.  You will need to unzip the file and then install the fonts in the usual way one installs fonts on your operating system.

Charis SIL Small Caps Use this if you use Charis SIL for your glosses.
Charis SIL Compact Small Caps Use this if you use some other font for your glosses. (This compact version uses the same baseline as most other fonts; regular Charis SIL tends to use a slightly lower baseline.)

 


Demo Movies

You can see the set of demonstration movies online by clicking here or you can download them to your own computer by clicking here. (If you download them, be aware that they are large: about 81MB.)


Utility for Open Office Writer

When you choose the XLingPaper option to produce an Open Office Writer document, sometimes the tables and some examples do not align properly.  There is an Open Office extension you can download and install that will correct this.

  1. Download the extension utility by clicking here.
  2. In Open Office, use Tools / Extension Manager
  3. Click on the Add button and navigate to where you downloaded the extension file.
  4. Follow the installation instructions.
  5. Exit out of Open Office and restart it.
  6. Now in Open Office Writer, there will be an XLingPaper tool bar and also an XLingPaper menu item. You can use these to invoke the macro.

Please also be sure and read the user documentation section on using Open Office Writer.  Click here to see it.


Utility for Microsoft Word

When you choose the XLingPaper option to produce a Microsoft Word document, sometimes the tables and some examples do not align properly.  There is a Microsoft Word document you can download and install that will correct this.

Download this document by clicking here and then following the instructions in that file.

Please also be sure and read the user documentation section on using Microsoft Word. Click here to see it.


Vowel Chart Graphic Package (for JIPA)

If you are writing an illustration article for the Journal of the IPA (JIPA), then you will probably want to create a trapezoidal vowel chart as part of your document.  We offer a sample trapezoidal vowel chart which has both SVG and PDF forms.  You can use the free Inkscape program to edit the SVG form of the chart and then use it to produce a new PDF file.


SVG to PDF Conversion Utility

When you have a graphic image in your document, if you use either SVG or PDF formats for it, then when your reader views the PDF output of your document, the graphic will be clear and look clean no matter how much the reader enlarges the PDF page.   While the RenderX way of producing PDF can handle SVG files, the XeLaTeX way cannot.  The XeLaTeX way, however, can handle using a PDF form of the graphic. On the other hand, the XMLmind XML Editor has an add-on that will correctly render an SVG file within the XMLmind XML Editor, but it does not have a way to show you what an embedded PDF file looks like.  (The add-on for the XMLmind XML Editor is the Apache Batik image toolkit plug-in.)

So how does one deal with this situation?  What we suggest you do is to use the SVG form of your graphic in the XMLmind XML Editor.  If you then use a conversion tool to convert the SVG file to a separate PDF file, when you tell XLingPaper to use the (default) XeLaTeX way of producing PDF, XLingPaper will notice that you have both an SVG and a PDF form of the graphic file.  It will then use the PDF form of the graphic file and the PDF output of your document will look nice.

We thus offer a conversion utility (based on the Batik SVG Rasterizer project) to enable you to convert your SVG files to PDF format.  There are three versions, depending on your operating system.
