[NTG-context] Forbid footnotes from splitting across pages

Dear Pablo,

Many thanks and apologies for top-posting: my normal email client is currently down.

I thought of something similar; after some testing, this is what I finally came up with:

\setupwhitespace[medium]
\setupnotation[footnote]
 [before={%
  \startframedtext[none][frame=on,offset=none,width=\textwidth,style={\setupwhitespace[medium]}]},
  after={\stopframedtext\blank[medium]}]

\starttext
\input ward\
\startfootnote
\input knuth
\stopfootnote{}
\dorecurse{3}{\input ward\ }
\startfootnote
\input knuth
\stopfootnote{}
\dorecurse{2}{\input ward\ }
\startfootnote
\input knuth
\stopfootnote{}
\dorecurse{3}{\input ward\ }
\startfootnote
\input knuth
\stopfootnote{}
\stoptext

It works but there must be a cleaner way..

Observation: The first argument of  \startframedtext is important, otherwise too much extra space is generated -- not sure why but the \startframedtext[none] suppresses it.

Endnotes are evil 🙂

But the reason for this is that I'm converting to WORD using Abobe and NitroPDF, and I'm trying to make things as easy for the editor of the book as easy as possible. The conversion will look right but the dozens of footnotes will, of course, be unlinked. If no footnote crosses the page it will be easier to edit in WORD -- which I'm not touching!

Thanks again.

Best wishes
Idris

Dear Idris,

I wonder whether a \framed[offset=none, frame=off, width=\textwidth]
would make sense here.

At least, it would prevent page breaks.

\setupnote[footnote][split=verystrict, scope=text] might help here.

But it cannot achieve what is practically impossible:

  \setupnote[footnote][split=verystrict, scope=text]

  \starttext
  \dorecurse{25}
    {ab cd ef\footnote{\input{knuth}}}
  \stoptext

I know that this depends from the publisher, but in these cases endnotes
are a way more viable option.

Just in case it might help,

Pablo
