%D One can (mis)use this mechanism, in close cooperation
%D with \PDFTEX\ to arrange pages of already produced files.
%D
%D \starttyping
%D \insertpages[file.pdf][1,3][n=30,width=18cm]
%D \stoptyping
%D
%D The pages are inserted in the text area, and even pages
%D are repositioned according to the width. In this example
%D empty pages are added after page 1 and 3.
%D
%D Selecting pages can be accomplished by:
%D
%D \starttyping
%D \filterpages[file.pdf][1,3,5][n=30,width=18cm]
%D \stoptyping
%D
%D One may pass \type {odd} or \type {even} instead of a
%D comma separated list. A third alternative is:
%D
%D \starttyping
%D \copypages[file.pdf][n=30,scale=950]
%D \stoptyping
%D
%D This macros inserts the page, according to the settings
%D provided.

%D \macros
%D   {combinepages}
%D
%D Yet another way of postprocessing is handles by \type
%D {\combinepages}. This macro builds a matrix of pages from a
%D file, for example:
%D
%D \starttyping
%D \setuppapersize
%D   [A4][A4] % or [A4,landscape][A4,landscape]
%D
%D \setuplayout
%D   [header=0pt,footer=1cm,
%D    backspace=1cm,topspace=1cm,
%D    width=middle,height=middle]
%D
%D \setupfootertexts
%D   [presentation---\currentdate\space---\space\pagenumber]
%D
%D \starttext
%D   \combinepages[slides][nx=2,ny=3,frame=on]
%D \stoptext
%D \stoptyping
%D
%D One can influence the way the pages are combined. (This
%D will be explained some time.)
