# Re: [NTG-context] Unconventional page number placement

`Hi Matt.`

```I don't have a total solution, but I think you were much closer than you
thought.```

`Matt Gushee said this at Fri, 18 Feb 2005 11:40:22 -0700:`

``` * Use negative dimensions to cause the header and footer to overlap
the text area, e.g.:```

`    \setuplayout [...,headerdistance=-0.35in,footerdistance=-0.5in]`

As I said, this comes very close to the desired effect, but it seems impossible to correctly align the header text and page numbers with the main text.

`How about this:`

```\setuppapersize[A4,landscape][A4,landscape]
\setuplayout[width=16cm,rightedge=\marginwidth]
footerdistance=-2\lineheight,
footer=2\lineheight,
height=middle]
\setupfootertexts[margin][pagenumber][]
\starttext
\showframe
\section{one}
\section{two}```

```You had it pretty much right, you just need to make sure that the text
blocks reach the bottom, a la the grid or \setupalign[line] stuff on the
list these past weeks.```

```Actually, at first, I thought this was a job for texttexts (weird, yeah,
but in the manual...), but I have not idea how to move those up and down,
where you want them.```

```And that rightedge block isn't really relevant here, but it looks nice on
the page. :)
\section{three}
\setuptext[margin][style=bold]
\setuptexttexts[margin][section][pagenumber]
\section{four}
\stoptext
```
`you can play with ...`

`\startsetups one`

`\vbox to \textheight \bgroup`

```  \strut \getmarking[section]
\vfill
\strut \pagenumber```

`\egroup`

`\stopsetups`

`\setuptexttexts[margin][\setups{one}][\setups{two}]`

`etc`

`--`
