# How to add whitespace after every item in a list in ConTeXt?

I have a document containing some questions. I need to leave readers space to write a few sentences as an answer.

I am using this code:

\startitemize[r]
\item Where do most bears live?
\item What kind of bears live in your area? When have you seen them?
\item If you meet a bear, what should you do?
\stopitemize


With the grid on, this leaves only one empty line after each item, e.g.:

i. Where do most bears live?

ii. What kind of bears live in your area? When have you seen them?

iii. If you meet a bear, what should you do?

This is some other text.


How can I add 1 or 2 extra empty lines after each item?

-

Define a new itemgroup for questions, and set the inbetween and after keys to specify an appropriate blank space:

\defineitemgroup
[questions]
[inbetween={\blank[2*line]},
after={\blank[2*line]},
symbol=r]

\starttext
\input knuth
\startquestions
\item Where do most bears live?
\item What kind of bears live in your area? When have you seen them?
\item If you meet a bear, what should you do?
\stopquestions
\input knuth
\stoptext


This way, your regular items are not changed.
