Generally, you use \inmargin, \inouter etc.

Additional to Wolfgang’s suggestions:

If you need sidefloats that cover not only the margin but should 
decrease the text width, you can move sidefloats into the margin like:


\startplacefigure[title={},location=outer]
\offset[rightoffset=-\marginwidth]{\externalfigure[cow][width=0.5\textwidth]}
\stopplacefigure

Beware: it doesn’t work well with captions (I’ve still no solution that 
always works), and \offset understands only rightoffset and leftoffset, 
not outeroffset.
The example is on a right page; you must “pull” the image into the 
margin (rightmargin with negative value), if you try „pushing“ with 
leftoffset=\marginwidth, the text flow is wrong.

2024-02-19 Thread Andres Conrado Montoya
There is a package on github https://github.com/andythomas/TeX-sidenotes
that can help you with that. Check the "context" folder on that repo. Also,
you can find an example of its use at
https://github.com/zvonkok/perf-panacea

Caveat emptor: It has not been updated in 12 years. It should work for the
most part, I tried to do something with it a while ago but that project was
cancelled. I have not tested it myself but maybe later in  the week I can
take a look at it.

You can use a custom layout with a narrow text block and a wide 
rightmargin area.



1. Keywords and small descriptions to emphasize some text from the textflow


Use the \inright etc. commands or create your own commands based on 
\inright, look at the margindata mechanism for more information.



2. Figures


You can change the default location of figures from the text block to 
the margin area.


3. An expansion of a table that is placed in the main textflow but that 
needs to cover a wider range then the text area so it expands into the 
margin


In the example below I added a check to the table float to either center 
the small tables or align wide tables on the inner margin which extend 
into the margin area. While this method works in a simple example for a 
real document I suggest to create a clone of the table float (e.g. 
widetable) because the method in the example can lead to 
problems/limitations.



What is the the easiest way to achieve this?


 begin example
\setuppagenumbering
  [alternative=doublesided]

\setuplayout
  [width=10cm,
   rightmargin=6cm]

\showframe

\def\FloatTableALignment
  {\dowithnextbox
 {\ifdim\nextboxwd>\textwidth
\doalignedline{inner}{\flushnextbox}%
  \else
\flushnextbox
  \fi}
 \hbox}

\setupfloat[table][command=\FloatTableALignment]

\setupfloat[figure][default=rightmargin]

\starttext

\inright{Lorem ipsum \unknown}\samplefile{lorem}

\startplacefigure
  \externalfigure[dummy][width=\rightmarginwidth]
\stopplacefigure

\samplefile{lorem}

\startplacetable
  \bTABLE
\bTR
  \bTD one \eTD
  \bTD two \eTD
  \bTD three \eTD
\eTR
  \eTABLE
\stopplacetable

\samplefile{lorem}

\startplacetable

\bTABLE[textwidth=\dimexpr\textwidth+\rightmarginwidth+\rightmargindistance\relax,option=stretch]
\bTR
  \bTD one \eTD
  \bTD two \eTD
  \bTD three \eTD

\stoptext
