The wiki claims setting up an MPenvironment is enough to change the font in MetaPost graphics:\startMPenvironment%[global] \switchtobodyfont [sans] \stopMPenvironment \starttext This should be serif. \startMPcode draw textext("This should be in sans."); \stopMPcode \stoptext However, this has no effect. All text is in default serif font. If [global] is provided, all text is in sans font. I am aware of a similar issue in a thread last year¹, but the solution didn't really address the problem. textext("\sans This should be sans.") works here, but the point is that the MPenvironment fails. Why is that?
Metapost now runs as a library. All the text is first typeset by ConTeXt and metapost only knows the bounding box of the labels.
You can try (untested): \starttext This is serif \switchtobodyfont[sans] \startMPcode draw textext("This should be sans"); \stopMPcode \stoptext Aditya
