# [NTG-context] columnar footnotes

```I'm trying to get a particular footnote series in columns. The body and
other footnotes and line notes have no columns.

Consulting the wiki, I thought this is the right code for it:

\setupcolumns[n=2]
\definenote[dict]
\setupnote[dict][before=\stopcolumns, after=\startcolumns]
\starttext
\dorecurse{10}{a\footnote{b}\dict{c}}
\stoptext

But I get an error and the document doesn't compile.

I don't know what is wrong here (although I realize that my mistake may
be basic).

Could anyone tell me what I am doing wrong here?
