I am creating a simple page layout for a book, which should have 1 cm margins along the top, bottom, and edge, but leave 3 cm in the middle margin, where the pages will be glued together.
_____________________ _ | ____ | ____ | _ 1cm | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | |____| | |____| | _ |__________|__________| _ 1cm | | | | | | | 1cm 3cm 3cm 1cm
I have thoroughly tested many options described in the new page design manual, but nothing worked as expected. This example is the closest I have gotten:
\setuppapersize[A5][A4, landscape] \setuparranging[2SIDE] \setuplayout[grid=yes, margin=10mm, leftmargin=5mm, width=103mm, rightmargin=5mm, backspace=30mm, topspace=10mm, top=5mm, header=0mm, height=190mm, footer=0mm, bottom=5mm, bottomspace=0mm, backspace=30mm] \showframe \starttext \input knuth \input knuth \input knuth \input knuth \stoptext
- How can I ensure that verso pages have a 1 cm left margin and recto pages have 1 cm right margins?
- How can I ensure that the first page, table of contents, and all
\part's begin on a recto page?
- Why does my document appear to have 3 layers of frames around the text, as seen by
\showframe, while the page design manual only has 1?
