Dear list,

This is a follow-up question on my previous question about Jean-Luc Doumont and his grid layouts. This time I have concrete questions. I reverse engineered his slide (slide_grid_overlay.pdf). All his units are based on inches, because the inch is an integer multiple (72) of the TeX point. His base unit is 0.1in. I tried implementing the layout first, but the pdf dimensions do not match the ones I set up. For example the width should be 8 inches, but the pdf is over 11 inches wide. I wish to shut off all margins and similar things and only have a text area with an offset of 0.2in all around the page (see slide_grid_overlay.pdf). Here is my current attempt:

%\input fonts

\definemeasure[base][0.1in]

\definemeasure[zero][0in]

\definepapersize[slide][width=80\measure{base},height=60\measure{base}]

\setuppapersize[slide]

\setuplayout[

leftedge=\measure{zero},

rightedge=\measure{zero},

leftedgedistance=\measure{zero},

rightedgedistance=\measure{zero},

leftmargin=\measure{zero},

rightmargin=\measure{zero},

leftmargindistance=\measure{zero},

rightmargindistance=\measure{zero},

width=middle,

cutspace=2\measure{base},

backspace=2\measure{base},

topspace=2\measure{base},

header=\measure{zero},

height=middle,

bottomspace=2\measure{base},

footer=\measure{zero}]

%\usetypescript[ibmplex][uc]

%\setupbodyfont[ibmplex,rm,9pt]

\starttext

\showlayout

\stoptext
