guys is there any way to setup a tabular environment in ConteXt. What i need is the equivalent of \AtBeginEnvironment{tabular} (latex command) but in ConTeXt. The goal is to use opentype features like tabular, proportional numbers only in tables. More info here: tabular numbers in tables, proportional in text

  • More than one: Table environment. In my opinion, the easiest to use is Natural Tables.

\definefontfeature[lnum][onum=no, lnum=yes]



  \NC 12345 \NC 67890 \NC \NR

  • Thanks Aditya, but what if i use \starttabulate instead \startTABLE?
