# [NTG-context] How to setup the footnote number in local footnotes

```Dear gang,

Consider the following:```
```
==============
\starttext
\startframedtext[width=fit,frame=off,offset=0pt]
% \startlocalfootnotes[n=2]
\startlocalfootnotes
\input ward
\startfootnote
\input ward
\stopfootnote

\placelocalfootnotes
\stoplocalfootnotes
\stopframedtext
\stoptext
==============

See attached:

1) Would like the footnote-number counter to start at 2, not 1.
```
2) Alternatively, would like to be able to define a conversion that sets the footnote numeral to 2. 3) Uncommenting the line % \startlocalfootnotes[n=2] doesn't work, although it is mentioned here:
```http://wiki.contextgarden.net/Command/startlocalfootnotes
So that must be for MKII..

```
Any pointers in setting up 1) and 2) are much appreciated. Thank you in advance!
```
Best wishes
Idris
