If I don’t get it wrong, if I define a layout for the first page, I have
to define it for even and odd pages, haven’t I?.

I want the text flow to avoid the layer "avoidasfloat" as it avoids the
figures.

\definelayer[avoidasfloat][x=0mm, y=0mm, hoffset=8mm,
voffset=101mm,location={right,bottom}, state=start]
\setlayer[avoidasfloat]{\startMPcode
draw (0mm,0mm)--(55mm,0mm) ;
draw (0mm,0mm)--(0mm,-86mm) ;
draw (0mm,-86mm)--(55mm,-86mm) ;
draw (55mm,-86mm)--(55mm,0mm) ;
\stopMPcode
}
\setupbackgrounds[page][background={avoidasfloat}]
\starttext
\dorecurse{40}{\input knuth\placefigure[right]{}{}\par}
\stoptext

Layer has text inside in the sample above. I’d like to have it as a float.

Many thanks for your help,

Pablo
