# \startpostponing

## Syntax

 \startpostponing[n] ... \stoppostponing

## Description

The contents of the block are not typeset immediately, but are inserted into the stream on a specific page (e.g. `\startpostponing[2]`) or a specific number of pages after the current one (e.g. `\startpostponing[+2]`). Most commonly used for figures or tables that one wishes to put on the next page.

## Example

Example from Hans:

```\startpostponing[2]
PAGE 2 \blank
\stoppostponing

\startpostponing[+1]
PAGE +1 \blank
\stoppostponing

\startpostponing[+2]
PAGE +2 \blank
\stoppostponing

\starttext\dorecurse{4}{\input tufte \page} \stoptext
```
