Sorry, I should have mentioned I was able to work around it by doing
exactly that, but I'd rather not have to edit all the \placefigure
instances if I decide to change the width.

Also I'd like to use a different default width for graphics, so
\setupexternalfigures[width=XXXcm] wouldn't work well either.

I realize I could define my own macros or something to solve this, but I'm
just puzzled that setting width in \setupfloat[figure] doesn't work. Am I
reading the manual wrong, or is is just not implemented yet or something?
(honest question)

Thanks for your response,

Mark
