This worked very well, thanks. I now want at the end of each chapter some
questions with the chapter number in the follow-up number, and then at the
end of the document a separate chapter with the answers with matching
numbers. In general for a single QA section this works, but now I start
distributing it over a number of chapters, the question and answer
numbering seems to be an issue. Would the define require a change?



% QUESTION AND ANSWER

\define[1]\QuestionTextCommand
  {\doglobal\increment\QuestionCounter
   \pagereference[question:\QuestionCounter]%
   \doifreferencefoundelse{answer:\QuestionCounter}
     {\goto{#1}[answer:\QuestionCounter]}
     {#1}}

\define[1]\AnswerTextCommand
  {\doglobal\increment\AnswerCounter
   \pagereference[answer:\AnswerCounter]%
   \doifreferencefoundelse{question:\AnswerCounter}
     {\goto{#1}[question:\AnswerCounter]}
     {#1}}

\defineenumeration
  [question]
  [text={\black Question},
   titledistance=2em,
   width=fit,
   distance=0.5em,

I have it working with a single chapter:

% QUESTION AND ANSWER

\define[1]\QuestionTextCommand
  {\doglobal\increment\QuestionCounter
   \pagereference[question:\QuestionCounter]%
   \doifreferencefoundelse{answer:\QuestionCounter}
     {\goto{#1}[answer:\QuestionCounter]}
     {#1}}

\define[1]\AnswerTextCommand
  {\doglobal\increment\AnswerCounter
   \pagereference[answer:\AnswerCounter]%
   \doifreferencefoundelse{question:\AnswerCounter}
     {\goto{#1}[question:\AnswerCounter]}
     {#1}}

\defineenumeration
  [question]
  [text={\black Question},
   titledistance=2em,
   width=fit,
   distance=0.5em,
   headstyle=bold,
   number=yes,
   prefix=yes,
   prefixsegments=chapter,
   alternative=serried,
   headcommand=\QuestionTextCommand]

\defineenumeration
  [answer]
  [text={\black Answer},
   width=fit,
   distance=0.5em,
   headstyle=bold,
   number=yes,
   prefix=yes,
   prefixsegments=chapter,
   alternative=serried,
   headcommand=\AnswerTextCommand]

\defineblock[answer]

% END SETUP

\starttext

\chapter{Chap1}

\section{End of Chapter Questions}

\startquestion Question 1 \stopquestion
\beginanswer \startanswer Answer 1 \stopanswer \endanswer
\startquestion Question 2 \stopquestion
