I see.
I’ll probably keep it as three books.
It’s easy to change later as long as the components have different names.
Right now that’s just a limitation of the word processor.

Works here as well, thank you.
What about the project?
Right now it is outside the \start{product|component} and it works.

Now it is inside the \start{product|component} and it works as well.

Next question:
Should the environment be inside \startproject \stopproject?

It seems to make no difference.

Thus having the whole file inside \start{project|product|component} \stop… would be a good idea and consistent.

Thanks for the quick response, now I can tell pandoc to convert the book to context:-)
