# [NTG-context] basic question on imposition

```Dear list,

I’m trying to build a booklet from an existing PDF document, my code is
the following (copied from the wiki long time ago):

\setuppapersize     [A5][A4,landscape]
\setuparranging     [2UP,doublesided]
\setuplayout [backspace=0pt,
topspace=0pt,
width=middle,
height=middle,
location=middle,
footer=0pt,
grid=no, marking=off]
\starttext
\insertpages[document.pdf][width=0pt]
\stoptext

It works perfectly, but I would like to achieve the same effect, only
imposing 4 pages on each side of the paper (8 pages per sheet).

Replacing the first two lines with:

\setuppapersize     [A6][A4]
\setuparranging     [2*4]

rearranges all pages, but not the way I want. With the previous option,
I have to cut the paper in four.

I would like to avoid this. I would like to cut the A4 in two landscape
A5 to be folded (not cut) in two A6 pages.

Which is the way to get this imposition?
