Hi again,
in my current book project there are sets of full-page graphics, where there’s first a drawing, to be printed on transparent paper, followed by a water colour picture as background, i.e. a series of

right page: foreground graphic
right page: background graphic

The transparent pages are left out in pagination.
Between chapters (i.e. stories), the following macro does what I want:

        \page[right] % foreground picture on transparent paper
\setlayer[bg]{\externalfigure[#1-fore][height=\dimexpr(\paperheight +6mm)]}
        \strut\par % page needs some content
        \page[right] % background picture on normal paper
\setlayer[bg]{\externalfigure[#1-back][height=\dimexpr(\paperheight +6mm)]}

Now, the publisher would like to move the picture pages in the middle of the stories, i.e. I need them to float "here" without manual page breaking.
How can I achieve that?

I’d also appreciate enhancements to my macro above.

(MkIV latest beta on OSX Intel.)

Thank you very much in advance!
