Hi Peter,

as in my reply from yesterday, this seems to fix your bugs:

  \setuppapersize[A4][A3,landscape] \setuparranging[2SIDE]
  \setuplayout[backspace=80mm, width=100mm, topspace=50mm, header=0mm,
  footer=0mm, height=200mm, margindistance=10mm, leftmargin=40mm]

  \definelayout[short][backspace=80mm, width=100mm, topspace=50mm,
  header=0mm, footer=0mm, height=80mm, margindistance=10mm,

  \dorecurse{10}{\input{knuth} }

It seems that you need to reset the layout in all other pages (where the
special layout isn’t applied).

I hope it helps,
