You can save a copy of the page in a box and print the collection of all boxes 
at the end of the document.

\newcount\sectionpage

\installpagehandler{sectionpage}%
 {\global\advance\sectionpage\plusone
  \global\expandafter\newbox\csname sectionpage:\number\sectionpage\endcsname
  \dowithnextbox
{\global\expandafter\setbox\csname 
sectionpage:\number\sectionpage\endcsname\copy\nextbox
 \actualshipout{\flushnextbox}}
\normalhbox}

\starttext

\setuppaper[method=sectionpage]


Thanks a lot! I think that I will be able to tweak this to get overview 
slides.

[NTG-context] Overview screen containing multiple pages

2011-11-20 Thread Aditya Mahajan
There is a python script called impressive 
(http://impressive.sourceforge.net/) that adds some eyecandy to 
presentations. One of the features that it has is an overview screen at 
the end, like this: http://impressive.sourceforge.net/oview.png
This is similar to the overview screen used in the ConTeXt showcase by 
Hans: http://pragma-ade.com/show-man.pdf


I want to include such an overview in my slides, but am not sure if it can 
be done without using a separate tex file. My slides look like this (sorry 
Thomas, I am not using simpleslides at the moment)


\starttext
\startsection[title={...}]
 
\stopsection

\startsection[...]
...
\stopsection
\stoptext

Each section spans over multiple pages. What I want is to have a last page 
which is equivalent to the following:


\startcombination[n*n]
  {\externalfigure[\jobname][page=page-number-of-first-section]}{}
  {\externalfigure[\jobname][page=page-number-of-second-section]}{}
  
\stopcombination

I tried a simple test case

\starttext
\input knuth
\page
\externalfigure[\jobname][page=1,width=0.3\textwidth]
\stoptext

but that does not include the first page. So, I think that what I want is 
not possible, but I wonder if others have different ideas on how this 
might be implemented (after all \setuparranging does manage to do 
something similar without the need for a separate tex file).
