Hi Hans,

I should print on a sheet of etiquettes made by Avery. The topspace as 
the bottomspace is 15 mm the left and right non printable area is 7 mm.
On the rest of the printing area there are 21 etiquettes with a 
horizontal distance of 3mm. There is no vertical gap in the columns of 
etiquettes.

I setup the XY arrangement. The etiquettes look o.k. The problem is, 
that Context ignores the topspace and backspace as setup in \setuppaper.

For your reference I add a minimal example.

Could you please have a look why the mentioned parameters are ignored?

Thanks, kind regards
Willi
