In LaTeX, one can display different text in the table of contents, than what appears in the document, for part, chapter, and section titles using this:

\part[This text will appear in the table of contents]{This text will appear in the document}
  • How can this be achieved in ConTeXt?

Use \start … \stop environments, with title and list keys.


\startsection[title={This text will appear in the document}, list={This text will appear in the table of contents}]
