# How to vertically center content in ConTeXt?

I would like to vertically center my title page. I have tried code like this, but it does not work:

``````\vfill
\startalignment[center]
Title
\stopalignment
\vfill
``````
• I am using ConTeXt, so the solutions at Vertically center text on a page did not work, however, solutions in plain TeX will be fine too.
• The documentation on \setupalign at the ConTeXt wiki suggests there might be the option `lohi`, but it seems only to center content vertically when placed inside a frame.

How can I vertically center content on a page?

 Have you tried makeup which is the standard method to write title pages in ConTeXt – Aditya May 6 '12 at 4:29 You are missing a `\dontleavehmode` immediately before the first `\vfill`. It is required because the top of a page is a special situation in vmode. – phg May 6 '12 at 7:43

As Aditya already answered, the most common way is to use `\startstandardmakeup`, as in:

``````\starttext
\startstandardmakeup
\startalignment[center] % or \centerline{...}
{\definedfont[Bold at 40pt] Title}
\stopalignment
\stopstandardmakeup
document text
\stoptext
``````

 Don't use explicit align macros. You can use: `\setupmakeup[align=middle]`. – Aditya May 7 '12 at 1:06
