It only works, if the contents is small enough. If it's too big, then you should use something like "\startTEXpage[align=normal,width=100cm,autowidth=force]" as explained here: https://mailman.ntg.nl/pipermail/ntg-context/2021/101149.html

Description

Start a page that fits its contents exactly. Or has some extra space around the edges, if you specify offset. It only works, if the contents is small enough. If it's too big, then you should use something like "\startTEXpage[align=normal,width=100cm,autowidth=force]" as explained here: https://mailman.ntg.nl/pipermail/ntg-context/2021/101149.html

Example

\showframe
\startTEXpage
asdf
\stopTEXpage

 

\showframe
\startTEXpage[offset=10pt]
asdf
\stopTEXpage

 

\setuppapersize[A10, landscape]
\showframe[]
\starttext
asdf
\stoptext
