1. Show complete examples and not only code snippets.

2. The \stopitemize command has *no* argument.

3. You have to use the \setupcounter command to set a continues numbering.

\setupcounter[itemgroup:itemize][way=bytext]

\setupitemgroup[itemize][each][n,continue]

\starttext

\dorecurse{2}
{\chapter{First chapter}
\dorecurse{2}
{\startitemize
\dorecurse{3}{\item Item \recurselevel}
\stopitemize}}

\stoptext
