# Why is a page break added at the end of a column set in ConTeXt?

I have a document containing some 1-column and 2-column passages, mixed, e.g.:

``````This sentence has no column-
s.

This part of   are balanced
the document   such that t-
has two col-   he lines are
umns which     equal.

This part of the document
has no columns. The text is
like normal.
``````

I am using a code like this:

``````\definecolumnset[customcolumns][n=2]
\starttext
This sentence has no columns.
\startcolumnset[customcolumns]
This part of the document has two columns which are balanced such that the lines are equal.
\stopcolumnset
This part of the document has columns. The text is like normal.
``````

Whe \stoptext

When I compile this code, the last paragraph is placed on a new page, but it seems there should be enough space that it can appear on the same page.

• How can I ensure that no page break is added at the end of the column set?

This looks like a bug. If you don't need anything fancy (different widths for columns, spanning columns, etc), you can try regular columns: `\startcolumn ... \stopcolumn` – Aditya Apr 27 '12 at 4:09
