# [NTG-context] Weird position of equation numbers for long equations

Hi,

I suspect that the equation numbering in attachment
(eq-with-chapter.png) is wrong. Shouldnt't the number be positioned on
the right (not on the left)? And in case that this positioning on the
left is intentional: is there any way or setting to force the equation
number to be moved to the right?

In any case I suspect that the equation in question could somehow be
squeezed into the available space in one line. What's the best trick
to squeeze the equation into a single line? Some kind of "\hbox to
0pt{\hss [content] \hss}" trickery or does there exist something
better?

Minimum problematic example:

\starttext
\placeformula
\startformula
\dorecurse{28}{a+}
\stopformula
\stoptext

Thank you,
Mojca
