Many thanks for your reply, Wolfgang.

The code above was introduced to solve an extra blank space reported by
me (http://www.ntg.nl/pipermail/ntg-context/2015/082111.html).

Removing also \noindentation seems to work here.

Wouldn’t it be possible to remove it? (I mean, split=yes lacks
\noidentation and it works fine with this.)

BTW, I discovered another issue with "split=yes". There is less blank
space after the table than when the table isn’t splitted.

    \setupindenting[yes, always, big]
    This is the first pagraph.

    \startxtable[option=stretch, split=yes, align=center]
            \startxcell[width=.3\textwidth] a \stopxcell
            \startxcell[width=.2\textwidth] b \stopxcell
            \startxcell[width=.2\textwidth] c \stopxcell
            \startxcell[width=.3\textwidth] d \stopxcell

    This is the second paragraph.

    \startxtable[option=stretch, align=center]
            \startxcell[width=.2\textwidth] a \stopxcell
            \startxcell b \stopxcell
            \startxcell c \stopxcell
            \startxcell[width=.2\textwidth] d \stopxcell

    This is the third paragraph.

Many thanks for your help,
