Hi  Jeff,

On 17/09/2003 Patrick Gundlach provided the following solution on this list:

%    [yes,header,left]
%    [yes,header,footer,right]

%   [page=Mychapterpagebreak,header=empty,footer=empty]

\setupheadertexts[{My special headertext}]
\setupfootertexts[This is a text in the footer]
% \setupbackgrounds[header][text][bottomframe=on]

    \chapter {testA} \dorecurse{10}{\input tufte }
    \chapter {testB} \dorecurse{10}{\input tufte }
    \chapter {testC} \dorecurse{10}{\input tufte }

Humble a hopefully correct explanation is:
1. You define a new pagebreak rule. It has the name 
"Mychapterpagebreak". The options set read as: "pagebreak=yes", 
placeheader, use a right page.
2. You set options for the header of type chapter and use for the option 
page the before defined new pagebreak..

You might want to experiment with the commented lines ans see what happens.

Kind regards

I found one other thread in this forum that told how to make this extra even page totally blank. However, I am not an advanced ConTeXt user yet, and I did not understand how to implement the solution. Is there a simple explanation of how to eliminate the header and footer on this even page?
