# [NTG-context] Layout stuff

```Hi all.

I've been trying to get layouts working, and wanted to verify some things
(as I haven't really worked much in that space before).

Is there any way to "inherit" a layout's parameters, such as:
\definelayout [preset-1-1]      [mypresettomodify]
\setuplayout [mypresettomodify][width=65\averagecharwidth]

(I finally figured out how to do what I want another way, but the
question is still interesting to me.)

Is the only way to activate a doublesided page layout though the page
numbering mechanism?

Thanks,
