Dear Jean-Pierre,

we are happy to help, but samples should be minimal.

Otherwise, the sample should be fixed first (to have something to play

Sorrym I tried to compile your sample, but even the simple clipboard
copy and paste adds extra blank lines to the code.

Do you want a different interline space in the second column?

You have to set it (see sample below).

\mainlanguage also selects the language for the document. The second
command isn’t required.

Well, this is the default paper size in ConTeXt. No need to select it.

I’d say this is not required (at least, I had to stop colors to get rid
of them in one document).

[state=start] is to be added here (see
http://wiki.contextgarden.net/Layers#State). Right after your closing

And here you have a shorter sample:


    \defineparagraphs[TwoColumns][n=2, align={hz,hanging}]



    \setlayer[logo_layer][preset=lefttop, y=.01\paperheight,




    \input knuth


    \input tufte

Interline spacing is set in an unorthodox way (to put it fine), but
there is no "setups" key for \setupparagraphs (or it doesn’t work).

Let us know whether you find more issues.

I hope it helps,
