Thank you, Luigi and Taco, for your almost instantaneous replies.

The answer to the left-right question, the recommended use of
flushright and flushleft,  is clear now.
But the eccentricity of what apparently is the default layout is still
a problem for me.
What should I do to get the page in the middle of the paper so to
speak, instead of shifted to the left, which happens with
\setuplayout[location=middle]?? I tried specifying leftedgewidth but
that does not change anything.

Thanks in advance for any help.
Best regards,

Robert Blackstone
