[NTG-context] two questions on imposition

Dear list,

I have the following sample:

    \setuppapersize[A6,landscape]
    \setupbodyfont[pagella, 12.1pt]
    \starttext
    \input knuth
    \stoptext

I don’t get it imposed four times on a single A4 sheet:

    \showframe
    \setuppapersize [A6][A4, landscape]
    \setuppaper[nx=2,ny=2]
    \setuparranging [XY]
    \setuplayout
      [backspace=0pt,
        topspace=0pt,
          header=0pt,
          footer=0pt]
    \starttext
    \filterpages[knuth-card.pdf][1,1,1,1]
    \stoptext

What am I missing here? Imposition is clearly wrong.

The second question is how can I do the whole process in a single file
using buffers.

\savebuffer might be the way to save the buffer, but how can I typeset
it to load the pages later with \filterpages?

Many thanks for your help,


Pablo
