Command/startglobal

From ConTeXt wiki

\startglobal

Syntax

\startglobal...\stopglobal

Description

By design, \useexternalfigure works only in local scope. In order to globally declare a figure, one has to wrap it into a \startglobal environment, thereby rendering it accessible outside the current group.

Example

\starttext
{
  \startglobal
    \useexternalfigure[kuh][cow.pdf]
  \stopglobal
  \placefigure[here]{first}{\externalfigure[kuh]}
}
\placefigure[here]{second}{\externalfigure[kuh]}
\stoptext
