# ConTeXt: How to style interactive elements individually rather than globally

I want two have two links, one bold and one normal.

As a MWE:

\setupinteraction[state=start,style=normal]
\starttext

\stoptext


These two links have the same style (neither are bold). If I omit the style=normal, then they still have the same style (both are bold). Is there no way to style links individually?

You can define a new interaction and style it differently. For example:

\setupinteraction[state=start,style=normal]
\defineinteraction[bold][state=start,style=bold]
\starttext

\stoptext


If you want the interaction to follow the style of the surrounding style, simply unset style. For example,

\setupinteraction[state=start,style=]
\starttext

\stoptext

• Thanks for your help. I'm very new to ConTeXt and I keep forgetting to try basic stuff like this. – dreamlax Jul 28 '15 at 23:15
• Don't worry. ConTeXt has a very consistent user interface. It takes some time to get used to, but once it clicks, you'll just be able to guess the solutions. – Aditya Jul 29 '15 at 1:00

If I change the position of the \bf directive, I seem to get your desired result:

\setupinteraction[state=start,style=normal]
\starttext
