Hi Mojca,

If you are working on a Mac, with TeXShop, I can tell you what I do: my mkiv.engine file contains the following:


source /Volumes/OK/context-minimal/tex/setuptex 
context "$1"
rm -f  *.tui *.log *.tuo *.xdv *.mp *.tmp *.top *-mpgraph.* *-mpgraph-temp.dvi *.tuc

So that after running context, the only file which is kept is \jobname.pdf (however this may be dangerous if you are using MetaPost with file suffixes *.mp. In my case since everything is done through context and files *.tex, I have no problem).

Best regards: OK
