[NTG-context] Re: Footnotes in margin? (HELP!)

Hans,

I don't know what crazy stuff Idris is using this footnotes for,
but for my case it went absolutely horrible: Almost every page gets half empty!!

It looks like the footnotes are just moved to the margin - leaving empty space, without the body text comes flush bottom again. I'm sure my publisher won't be amused about all this empty paper...

It tried to send a minimal example and changed just the text between \starttext and \stoptext.

Maybe there is something that could be changed in order to get the main text in flush bottom shape again AND keep the corresponding footnotes in the margin?

(Sorry Hans, but I tried for three hours now to understand and change the source without any chance...)



\showframe

\definenote[mynote][way=bypage,location=text,width=\marginwidth,rule=,before=]

\setuplayout[backspace=5cm,margin=3cm,margindistance=.5cm,width=middle]

\setuptexttexts
  [margin]
  [\vbox to \textheight{\placenotes[mynote]\vfill}]
  []

\starttext

\dorecurse{3}{\input knuth \par \input tufte \mynote{\input knuth \par}\par}

\stoptext
