Dear list, Motivated by this question on TeX.SX https://tex.stackexchange.com/questions/370292 I found out that in a fullpage figure there is a spurious vertical space of .5\baselineskip above the figure. I was not able to find out where it comes from. Is this by design? MWE is below. Cheers, Henri  \showframe \starttext \input knuth \startplacefigure [location={leftpage,none}] %% remove spurious vertical space %% don't ask me where it comes from %\blank[.5\baselineskip] \externalfigure [dummy] [height=\textheight,width=\textwidth] \stopplacefigure \stoptext
