Dear all,

This is a long standing feature request reported multiple times by
myself and others with MWEs in
https://www.mail-archive.com/ntg-context@ntg.nl/msg79620.html and

Another MWE in which the link is non-functional:

\setupinteraction[state=start, focus=standard]

Please, Hans, I kindly ask you to reconsider. I am aware of your
opinion and reasoning about this issue. But I believe that for many of
us users, today's PDFs need to be both, interactive *and* printable.

If there is any way I can help or motivate you, then please tell me ;-)

Kind regards,
