Command/setupcolumnsetstart

From ConTeXt wiki

\setupcolumnsetstart

Syntax

\setupcolumnsetstart[...][...][...][...]
[...] columnset name
[...] nesting level
[...] number of individual column in columnset
[...] starting line (1 = start at the top)

Description

Specify, for an individual column in a columnset, on what line you want its contents to start. Say that a column is setup with \setupcolumnsetlines to have 40 lines, and with \setupcolumnsetstart to start on line 15, then the column will have lines 1-14 empty, and text in lines 15-40; any text beyond that will end up in the next column.

Example
