[NTG-context] placing figures left with no wrap

2005-05-30 Thread Paul Tremblay
How can I place a figure to the left of the page *without* having any
text wrap around it? 

If I use:

\placefigure[here]{{\bf
figure 1.1: }Woolworth store in Lexington}{\externalfigure[WWORIG
ref]}

I get a graphic that is centered. I want to push the graphic to the
left of the page. 

The only way I know how to achive this right now is with:

externalfigure[WWORIG ref]
\par
{\bf figure 1.1:} Woolworth store in Lexington
\par

But this method probably won't keep my captions and graphics together.
If the graphic is placed at the bottom of the page, my caption will
appear on the next page.

Do I need to save the graphic as a buffer and then place the buffer? I
coudln't find any directions on how to use buffer, though I swear I
saw it on the wiki.

Thanks

Paul

\definefloat [leftfigure][figure]
\setupfloat[leftfigure][location=left]
\setupcaption[leftfigure][style=bold]

\starttext

\input tufte

\placeleftfigure
  {Woolworth store in Lexington}
  {\externalfigure[WWORIGref]}

\input tufte

\stoptext

Thanks. I discovered that a bit ago and was just about to post what I
found out. 

Now, I don't suppose there is any way to actually fine-tune the
placement? I asked this question about two months ago and since I
didn't get a response figured there was no way.

For example, I would like to indent the figures about 5 cm from the
left margin.
