In LaTeX, some document classes specify sans serif fonts for chapter and section titles, and serif fonts for the main text of a document. what is the proper way to achieve this in ConTeXt? I have code like this, to specify my fonts:



\setupbodyfont[minionpro, 12pt]

ConTeXt uses \ss to denote sans-serif, and the suffixes a, b, c, d, and e refer to font size. See font switching on the context wiki for more details.

  • Just wanted to note that the e suffix doesn't work (anymore), at least right now on my ConTeXt installation (2019-06-04).
