I have the something similar to the following:

\setuppapersize[A6][A6]
\starttext
\overstrike{Hello\hfill world!} % Works OK

Hello\leaders\hbox{.}\hfill world! % Works OK, nothing special

\overstrike{Hello\leaders\hbox{.}\hfill world!} % Not quite right
\stoptext

And this produces the following output:

The problem is that I would like the overstrike to apply over the leaders as well. Is this possible?

(Via Hans Hagen on the context mailing list). Use continue=all parameter for setupbar:

\setupbar[overstrike][continue=all]
\setuppapersize[A6][A6]
\starttext
\overstrike{Hello\hfill world!} % Works OK

Hello\leaders\hbox{.}\hfill world! % Works OK, nothing special

\overstrike{Hello\leaders\hbox{.}\hfill world!} % Not quite right
\stoptext

which gives

  • I accepted your answer but I only just now had a chance to try and use it ... however, it's not working the same way as shown in your answer - I'm still not getting overstriked leaders. Any ideas? I'm using ConTeXt 2014.05.21 (shipped with Debian Jessie).

  • @dreamlax: You may need to update your ConTeXt distribution. ConTeXt minimals/standalone is an easy way to install the latest context alongside an existing distribution.
