Many thanks for your reply, Wolfgang.

I found something weird here.

Compare the four options:

  %~ \setuplayout[width=middle, backspace=0.001mm]
  %~ \setuplayout[width=fit, backspace=0.001mm]
  %~ \setuplayout[width=middle, cutspace=0.001mm]
  %~ \setuplayout[width=fit, cutspace=0.001mm]
  \starttext \showframe \showsetups \stoptext

Each of the options gives a different result.

I thought the same might happen with topspace and bottomSpace. I’m
afraid this is also different:

  %~ \setuplayout[height=middle, topspace=0.001mm]
  %~ \setuplayout[height=fit, topspace=0.001mm]
  %~ \setuplayout[height=middle, bottomspace=0.001mm]
  %~ \setuplayout[height=fit, bottomspace=0.001mm]
  \starttext \showframe \showsetups \stoptext

I wonder whether there might be a bug here.

Many thanks for your help,
