Dear list members,

I am trying to recreate a layout for some dictionary with ConTeXt. It is 
a two column layout with line numbering between the columns, that is, 
there is only one numbering for both columns. How can I do this with 

I would need either an option to activate line numbering only for one 
column, which, as far as I can see, does not exist; or I could use the 
"command" option for "\setuplinenumbering" to make the line numbers 
dissappear for one column, but then I would need some way to decide 
whether a line number belongs to the first or to the second column, some 
command that returns to me the number of the actual column, which I 
can't find, too.

For illustration, I give a minimal example:

|||\setupcolumns[n=2, distance=1cm, ]\setuplinenumbering[step=5, 
method=page, location=right, align=flushright, 

In the result, there are (as is to be expected) line numbers between 
both columns and also to the right of the second column. How can I get 
rid of the latter ones?

Best regards,
