# Re: [NTG-context] Placement of numbers in numbered equations on the left

```Hi Hans,

Following up the previous bug report, I tried the latest version, ConTeXt  ver:
2016.09.09 08:21 MKIV beta, and noticed that you have solved one part of the
problem with the placement of equation numbers on the left, when using
\startalign.
Actually the location of those equation numbers is correct as far as the
horizontal distance is concerned, but it is not vertically.
In the attached PDF (which is the result of the following example) one can see
that equation number (5) is placed on the grid line 10, while it shoul dbe
placed on line 11 in alignment with the corresponding formula. Moreover
equation number (4) does not show up at all (that number should be placed a
little bit below line 9 of the grid).```

Best regards: OK

%%% begin example bug-mathalign.tex
\showgrid

\starttext
With the default setting, that is \type{\setupformulas[location=right]} one
gets:
\placeformula
\startformula
\startalign
\NC \exp(t_1)\exp(t_2)\NC = x_1x_2=\exp(\log(x_1x_2))\NR[eq:explag0]
\NC \NC =\exp(\log x_1+\log x_2) = \exp(t_1+t_2).\NR[eq:explag1]
\stopalign
\stopformula

\placeformula
\startformula
1+1=2
\stopformula

\setupformulas[location=left]
While with \type{\setupformulas[location=left]} one gets:

\placeformula
\startformula
\startalign
\NC \exp(t_1)\exp(t_2)\NC = x_1x_2=\exp(\log(x_1x_2))\NR[eq:explag0]
\NC \NC =\exp(\log x_1+\log x_2) = \exp(t_1+t_2).\NR[eq:explag1]
\stopalign
\stopformula

\placeformula
\startformula
2+3=5
\stopformula
\stoptext
