Dear...

...invisible man probably known as Hans...

Thanks for fixing this!

Cheers,
Andreas

FYI followers:

\starttext 
\externalfigure[cow][width=0.5\makeupwidth] 
\stoptext

works with the latest beta (MKIV)

So, do I get it right that the idea of this change is to stick to a rigid A4 setting (i.e. all figures are e.g. of width 5 cm) and then simply change the print out size to A5:
