Revisiting this question after an absence I tried redefining
various values from the above list within \setupFLOWcharts. None
worked.  No doubt there is a magic combination I missed. But more
than one user has been perplexed by this. 

You know I never did figure out the answer to this one. And
factors such as \tfd were still too small. So I used the 
TeX primitive: 
\font\cx=bchr8r at 10pt
 external to any other macro
and for each text string in the chart definition
I used the \cx prefix. This was simple,
controllable, and did not interact with anything else. And the
font came out at the expected size. 

A better (more Contextish) solution is still requested.

 John, I guess you have

 and your natural chart is wider then \textwidth, is't it?

 Vit

The immediate effect is that everything is bigger and the chart
overflows both margins. The text is at normal size for this
document. So the text problem was solved, but how to get the
widgets and the spaces between them down to a reasonable size?
After much experimentation I came up with this:

\setupFLOWcharts
[
nx=6,
ny=2,
dx=\bodyfontsize,
dy=\bodyfontsize,
width=.15\hsize,
height=.15\hsize,
]
There is still some overflow into the margins and some of the text
is too highly hyphenated. But at least I am on the right track.

When all this is over I may write my own version of the manual
so I won't forget between uses :) 

Thanks much,

John Culleton
