Thnkas doe yor reply.
Here is where I found that manual:
http://www.pragma-ade.com/general/manuals/columns.pdf

Unfortunately it does not cover the situation I
mentioned, where a graphic is place in the center
of a two column page but does not span either
column edge to edge but rather protrudes part of
the distance across each each column with text
flowing around it on both sides. In Context as
far as I can tell protrusion is all or nothing
in double columns. But a partial protrusion into a
single column has been available for a long time,
see The Context Manual section 15.2.

Hi John,

Sorry to hear that didn't work. 

Could you not have a box that spans two columns, the put the graphic in the box 
and position the graphic as you wish?

I'm just getting started myself with columns; sorry if the suggestion doesn't 
make sense. 

Best,
Mica

in It's in the details and the Columns
document but I cannot find this specific example.
I thought I saw one years ago.

Is such a trick possible in Context without
heroic special coding?
