A makeup is a separate page, like a title page or colofon. There is one standard makeup page, but you can define more if needed.
It is a page type with a special layout / header & footer sections that last only temporarily. The key point is that such a page does not (have to) rely on the current page layout style, which is especially useful for title pages.
By default the page layout set up with
\setuplayout is being reused. However, a custom page layout can be used as well.
\definemakeup automatically uses a layout defined with
definelayout with the same name as the makeup.
There are two different ways to switch to the defined makeups:
\startmakeup [custom] … some content … \stopmakeup
\startcustommakeup … some content … \stopcustommakeup
% this layout is automatically used by the “custom” makeup \definelayout [custom] [backspace=5mm] \definemakeup [custom] \starttext \startmakeup [custom] \input ward \stopmakeup \input knuth \startcustommakeup \input ward \stopcustommakeup \stoptext
