After writing down all values I realized that I never questioned the
strange value 6.8. With 7 it is quite easy. ;-)


\definepageshift
    [flyer]
    [horizontal]
    [\dimexpr\measure{bleed}-\measured{shortfold}\relax,
    \measure{bleed},
    \measure{bleed},
    \dimexpr2\measured{shortfold}+\measured{bleed}\relax,
    \measure{bleed},
    \dimexpr\measure{bleed}-\measured{shortfold}\relax
    ]


Thanks a lot for your help.
