Hi Lukáš,

here you have the code:

\setuplayout[page]

\definelayer[mybg][position=middle, location=middle]

\setlayer[mybg]
[x=.5\paperwidth,y=.5\paperheight]
{\framed
[frame=on,offset=5mm,width=fit,rulewidth=2mm]
{\setupbodyfont[10mm,sans]\bf Some text}
}

\setupbackgrounds[page][background={mybg}]
\setupbodyfont[helvetica]
\starttext
Hello, world!
\stoptext

Layer has also position and location. As far as I remember, default
values are {top, left}.

I recall a comment from Wolfgang about setting the body font when using
layers. This is the way to have your text.

I hope it helps,

Pablo
