I use extensively ConTeXt for my work as a teacher.

I run into this problem :

I've defined the following layout for giving work for my students :


backspace=3cm, topspace=1.5cm,
header=0cm, footer=1cm

height=23cm, textheight=22cm]


The purpose is to give some space on the first page to put a layer with a big 
title (it's for a document full of exercices, an example could be found at 

But, after having the correct layout for the first page, the second page gives 
me a reduced textheight : the text don't flow on the lower part of the page.

That could be explain as the textheight variable is not computed for the second 

This is very annoying.

I've found a workaround by using the same layout for the whole document and put 
some blank lines on the first page.

I use the following version "ConTeXt  ver: 2011.05.18 18:04 MKII  fmt: 
2011.8.31  int: english/english". 

Thank you for your help,
