Initials have been rewritten (they also no longer pick up an argument which is more robust). The old macros will probably be removed (or end up in a module).
```
\setupinitial[font=Bold at 48pt,state=start]
```
```

Ok, but how can I set the font size relative to bodyfontsize/ baselineskip?
```
"state=start" doesn’t seem necessary, it works without.
