# [NTG-context] Pagebreak in columns

Good evening.

I typeset a document in two columns on a grid. Sometimes a page is one
row longer than it should be. How can I make it not to do it? (I don't
care for widows and things like that, I can correct them manually). I
know this was disscussed before but I can find the text of the thread in
any archive, just the link. Any hint?

Many thanks for any hint. Your sincerely

I set it approximately like this (just major setting mentioned):

\setuplayout
[topspace=1cm, height=19cm, lines=43,
backspace=1cm, width=128mm,
footer=2\baselineskip, footerdistance=0pt,
grid=yes]
\setupcolumns
[n=2, tolerance=tolerant, distance=1em]
\widowpenalty=0\relax
\clubpenalty=0\relax
\brokenpenalty=0\relax
\normalbottom

\starttext
\startcolumns
...
\stopcolumns
\stoptext
