# Re: [NTG-context] bug: \getmarking with mixedcolumns

I now have a MWE that shows the problem.
Where top and bottom work fine outside of columns, in mixedcolumns, any
keyword I use with \getmarking always seem to return the *last* item on
the page. Here's the MWE:


I changed the example a bit

\setupbodyfont[dejavu]

\definemarking[country]

(\getmarking[country][1][top]\enspace\emdash\enspace\getmarking[country][1][bottom])
\hfill

(\getmarking[country][2][top]\enspace\emdash\enspace\getmarking[country][2][bottom])
\stopsetups

\def\anothersection#1%
{\par
\dontleavehmode
\marking[country]{#1}%
\start\bf #1 \endgraf\stop
test
\par}

\starttext
\startmixedcolumns[distance=5mm, balance=yes]
\anothersection{Brazil}
%\anothersection{Suriname}
%\anothersection{Uruguay}
%\anothersection{Bolivia}
%\anothersection{Venezuela}
\anothersection{Peru}
\stopmixedcolumns
\stoptext


The problem, is/was that mixed columns had not yet mark synchronization enabled. I uploaded a new beta. In the process I also made marks a bit more restrictive but it might have (yet unknown) side effects.

\enabledirectives[marks.boxestoo]

can be used to see the effect of this.
