Hi Philipp,

I thought lists were the main problem for footnotes to be invaded, but I
was wrong.

I’m afraid that ConTeXt has changed the way that deals with footnotes. A
side effect is this accidental invasion from body text in foonote space.

Before it went worse, the problem was paragraph notes. I reported back
then, but I saw that this was a blocker for anything related to critical
editions in my case.

I think Hans is interested in solving this (or at least, in not having
broken features in ConTeXt), but it might be very hard to track.

I’m afraid I cannot provide a sample. I get text running in footnotes
spaeces with Markdown sources and a rather complex ConTeXt environment.

I wonder if it would be possible to fix the cause by providing a MWE.

Sorry for not being helpless at this issue,
