Hello,

I am trying to use tikz's remember picture and overlay for absolute
positioning. With the code below, the content in the tikz picture
appears on a new page after the slide title. I want it to appear on
the same page. Please see the minimal example below. I have explained
with comments where the problem occurs.

\setuppapersize[S6][S6]
topspace=0.25in, height=middle]
\setupbackgrounds[page][background=color, backgroundcolor=linen]
\setupwhitespace[medium]
\setuppagenumbering[location=]
\setupcolors[state=start]
\setupinteraction[state=start,color=blue]
\setupcolor[xwi]

color=lightsteelblue]

\def\SlideTitle#1{\page\framed[frame=off, background=color, %
backgroundcolor=gray:9]{\slidetitle{#1}}}
\usemodule[simplefonts]
\setmainfont[Helvetica]
\switchtobodyfont[20pt]

color=lightsteelblue]

\def\SlideTitle#1{\page\framed[frame=off, background=color, %
backgroundcolor=gray:9]{\slidetitle{#1}}}

\starttext

\SlideTitle{Product Characteristics and Quality}

% This tikz content should appear on the same page as the title,
but it appears
% on a new page. If I use \subject{Product Characteristics and
Quality} then
% the tikz content appears on the same page.

\starttikzpicture[remember picture, overlay]
\node[xshift=2in, yshift=2in] at (current page.north west)
[text width = 2in]{Weight?}
\stoptikzpicture

% The following content appears on another page after the tikz
content. This is independent
% of whether I use \SlideTitle or \subject. How can I make all of
these appear on the same page?
