# [NTG-context] placelocalfootnotes breaks center alignment

Dear list,

sometimes, one wants to place footnotes in a table which then appear right below the last row.  Therefore ConTeXt ships the clever `\start...\stoplocalfootnotes` mechanism.  Unfortunately, putting `\placelocalfootnotes` outside of the table breaks the centering of the table itself.  For illustration please see the example below.  How can I have my table centered while the footnotes are either left-aligned with respect to the left border of the table or left-aligned with respect to the page (whatever is easier)?

Cheers, Henri
