Thanks! I tried 1fil, but it was not enough. 1fill seems to be good. But on
the last page, there is a problem. Here is my example file:

\def\Par{bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla
bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla}
\def\Fig{\placefigure{A figure.}{\framed{\vbox to 5cm{bla}}}}
\def\Tab{\placetable{A table.}{\framed{\vbox to 5cm{bla}}}}
\setuplayout[height=24cm]
\setupwhitespace[0pt plus 1fill]
\starttext
\dorecurse{20}{\section{Section}\Par\Par\Par\Fig\Par\Par\par\Par\par\Tab
\Par\Par\Par\par\Par\Par\par\Par\Par\par\Par\Par\par\Par\Par\Par\Par\Par}
\stoptext

I could place a \vfilll at the end of each chapter, but perhaps there is
a more elegant solution.

Cheers, Peter
