I am trying to create a PDF where the text is placed on pages of A5, but two A5 sheets are placed on one A4 sheet which is in landscape mode, e.g.:

 _______________
|       |       |
|       |       |
|   A5  |   A5  |
|       |       |
|_______|_______|

I have tried this, but it just places A5 pages on the left side of the A4 sheet, no pages appear on the right side:

\setuppapersize[A5][A4, landscape]
\setuparranging[2*1, doublesided]
\setuppagenumbering[alternative=doublesided]

You can find information about imposition in the new chapter about page design. I used the option 2SIDE as follows:

\setuppapersize [A5] [A4, landscape]
\setuparranging [2SIDE]
\starttext
\switchtobodyfont [380pt]

\dorecurse{6}{%
    \midaligned{\recurselevel}
    \page}

\stoptext
