Hi Huseyin,

it isn’t clear (at least, to me) what you mean with the footnote line
(there is a rule for all footnotes).

I think that the "before" key from \setupnote does exactly what you say
you want: specify the distance between the rule and the main text.

You might use the "before" key in \setupnotation, but that will alter
the space before in all footnotes.

Maybe you might check the i-context.pdf document (on pages 233 and 234)
to check the options for both the \setupnotation (the individual note)
and \setupnote (the notes group). (It comes with the ConTeXt Suite
distribution, tex/texmf-context/tex/context/interface/mkiv/i-context.pdf)

Just in case it might help,
