# Re: [NTG-context] Chapter precis

```Interesting thread.

I currently use:```
```
\definestartstop [precis]
[style=italic,indenting=no,indentnext=no,after={\blank}]

and then

\startchapter [title=A Chapter]

\startprecis
Short summary text.
\stoprecis

\stopchapter

and indeed it could be interesting to also include this text in the

before={\startbuffer[precis]},

after={\stopbuffer\getbuffer[precis]\writetolist[chapter]{}{\getbuffer[precis]}}
to the \definestartstop
but this does not seem to work. I did not try further.
Perhaps someone has an idea on how to better achieve this?
