Is there a way to have paragraph-style footnotes in ConTeXt, similar to what is provided by the footmisc package? E.g.:

This is some text^1. This is some
other^2 text. This is some more
text.
--------
1 This is a footnote 2. This is
another footnote. See how it
begins on the same line as the
first footnote?

    The footnote mechanism has been "MkIVised" recently. It will be best if you ask this question on the ConTeXt mailing list. – Aditya Apr 4 '12 at 2:54

You are looking for \setupnotation[alternative=serried] (controls the number placement) combined with \setupnote[paragraph=yes] (removes the breaks).

\setuppapersize[A6,landscape]
\define[1]\footnotenumbercommand{#1.}

\setupnotation [footnote] [
  numbercommand=\footnotenumbercommand,
  alternative=serried,
]

\setupnote[footnote] [paragraph=yes,]

\starttext

Foo\footnote{This is a footnote.}
bar.\footnote{%
  This is another footnote. See how it begins on the same line as the
  first footnote?
}

\stoptext

paragraph style footnotes

0

you can define the number of columns for the footnotes, eg:

\setupfootnotes[n=4]
  • I do not want columns. I would like for the information to appear in paragraph form. – Village Apr 1 '12 at 9:18
