 Remove “position=yes” when you want the layer on a certain position on the 
 page but don’t
 expect the text to flow around the layer.

Many thanks for your reply, Wolfgang.

I’m afraid that I need the layer on that position and text flowing
around the layer.

Is there no way to do place a MP graphic on a certain position and make
the text flow around it?

Sorry for insisting, but it surprises me that such a basic need seems
impossible with ConTeXt.

Many thanks for your help,


Pablo

 Dear list,

 I have the following sample and two issues that I must solve:

 \showframe\setuplayout[margin=20mm, width=fit, topspace=45mm,
 bottomspace=25mm,
 height=fit]
 \definelayout[first][topspace=70mm, bottomspace=30mm]
 \definelayer[avoidasfloat][x=0mm, y=0mm, hoffset=8mm, voffset=101mm,
 location={right,bottom}, state=start]
 \setlayer[avoidasfloat]{\startMPcode
 draw (0mm,0mm)--(55mm,0mm) ;
 draw (0mm,0mm)--(0mm,-86mm) ;
 draw (0mm,-86mm)--(55mm,-86mm) ;
 draw (55mm,-86mm)--(55mm,0mm) ;
 \stopMPcode
 }
 \setupbackgrounds[page][background={avoidasfloat}]
 \starttext
 \dorecurse{40}{\input knuth\par}
 \stoptext

 First, the layout is right on the first two pages, but it is wrong from
 page three. The text doesn’t reach the bottom frame.

 I have the info on multiple layers from the wiki (it isn’t a complete
 example, though). After Wolfgang’s reply last Friday, I spend hours
 searching on the mailing list trying to find relevant information to
 know what I was doing wrong.

 If this isn’t a bug, what am I missing here?

 from http://wiki.contextgarden.net/Odd,_even_,_first_page_not_working

\showframe
%\setuplayout[margin=20mm, width=fit, topspace=45mm,
%  bottomspace=25mm,
%  height=fit]

\definelayout[1][topspace=120mm, bottomspace=30mm,height=fit]

\definelayout[even][margin=20mm, width=fit, topspace=45mm,
  bottomspace=25mm,
  height=fit]

\definelayout[odd][margin=20mm, width=fit, topspace=45mm,
  bottomspace=25mm,
  height=fit]



\definelayer[avoidasfloat][x=0mm, y=0mm, hoffset=8mm,
voffset=101mm,location={right,bottom}, state=start]
\setlayer[avoidasfloat]{\startMPcode
  draw (0mm,0mm)--(55mm,0mm) ;
  draw (0mm,0mm)--(0mm,-86mm) ;
  draw (0mm,-86mm)--(55mm,-86mm) ;
  draw (55mm,-86mm)--(55mm,0mm) ;
  \stopMPcode
}
\setupbackgrounds[page][background={avoidasfloat}]
\starttext
\dorecurse{40}{\input knuth\par}
\stoptext




 My second question is about the layer: is there no way to force the text
 to avoid it as if it were a float?

 Many thanks for your help,


hm what do you want to avoid ?

Many thanks for your reply, Luigi.

If I don’t get it wrong, if I define a layout for the first page, I have
to define it for even and odd pages, haven’t I?.

   My second question is about the layer: is there no way to force the text
   to avoid it as if it were a float?

I want the text flow to avoid the layer avoidasfloat as it avoids the
figures.

\definelayer[avoidasfloat][x=0mm, y=0mm, hoffset=8mm,
voffset=101mm,location={right,bottom}, state=start]
\setlayer[avoidasfloat]{\startMPcode
  draw (0mm,0mm)--(55mm,0mm) ;

  \stopMPcode
}
\setupbackgrounds[page][background={avoidasfloat}]
\starttext

Layer has text inside in the sample above. I’d like to have it as a float.
