Description

The first argument is assumed to be "text" when it is left out. Text sets the position of the header and/or footer directly over or under the pagebody. Margin places the content in the margin of the document.

The different states and their effects:

start, stop switch headings on and off
none switch off for whole chapter
empty no heading on the first chapter page
high no heading on the first chapter page + expand textarea about space occupied by heading.
text some 'text' defined by
\definetext[text][footer][pagenumber]

or

\definetext[text][footer][left][right]

which is valid on the first chapter page

Note that when setting the state, before or after each applies to all parts of the page and it is therefore best to set these by themselves as the first example below shows. For this reason state=high also affects the footer in that it removes the footer leaving no whitespace.

Example

\setupheader[state=empty]
\setupheader[strut=yes,style=bold]
\setupheader[text][after=\vskip 4pt \hrule]
