Hi, The 2SIDE arrangment is not intended for a doublesided layout. If the layout is single sided you can easily add an empty page with \strut\page. This impositionscheme is only for arranging 2 pages on a suitable paper, the pages remain in their normal sequence. that is, there is no booklet!

Hi Snajoy, May be you could approach that issue with preparing first a document on A4 and for paper saving arrange the pages from the pdf with texexec: texmfstart texexec --pdfarrange --paper=a5a4 --2up yourfile.pdf Willi Sanjoy Mahajan wrote: Willi Egger wrote: In your code you try to

Dear Willi and Wolfgang, Thanks for the explanations. I understand ConTeXt arranging a bit better now and am trying more (and longer) experiments. I still can't figure out this one, though. Even printing doublesided, you don't want p.1 to vanish: \setuppapersize[A5][A4,landscape]

Hi Sanjoy, There is no halucination involved. In your code you try to typeset two A5 portrait beneeth each other on a A4 landscape, which is impossible. Try A3 landscape and you will see. - When experimenting with short texts as tufte I usually use \showframe. By the way if you want to
