Subject: [NTG-context] How to Create Asymmetrical Continuous Columns in ConTeXt?
Date: Thu, 18 Jan 2024 13:18:41 -0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <170558392149.4140450.326981002571573609@cgl.ntg.nl> (raw)

Hi all,

I have a lengthy text that I wish to seamlessly incorporate using the \input{mytext} command in ConTeXt. 
Additionally, I aim to present it in asymmetrical continuous columns, where the text flows over several pages.

I have tried paragraphs and columns, but in paragraphs, I can't flow text across several pages without manually breaking it, and in columns, I haven't found a way to implement asymmetric columns.

How can I achieve this layout in ConTeXt? this is a MWE but it does not work properly:



also is there a mechanism to automatically continue text between desired frames? For example, is there a way to write a function that, if the text reaches the end of the line and there is not enough space for another line in that frame, it continues the text in another frame that is already specified? in other word How do you make text flow to another part of a page?

Thanks in advance.
Best regards,
