Description

Comment

The use of narrower is a bit abnormal.

\startnarrower (\startsmaller in dutch) is one of the oldest commands in ConTeXt. It predates the now-normal conventions by a few years.

Don't expect any changes to \startnarrower. But perhaps a more predictable alternative could be added.


Example

Long text that is longer then the following text
\setupnarrower[left=3cm, right=3cm]

\startnarrower[left,right]
this is narrower
\stopnarrower

% or

\setupnarrower[middle=3cm]
\startnarrower % [middle] is default
this is narrower
\stopnarrower
Long text that is longer then the preceding text

yields
