[...] filename
[...] n=number of pages, counting from start
[...] other settings (TBD)
[...] figure options, see \useexternalfigure


Insert pages from another PDF file as pages in the current document. This command differs from \filterpages because one cannot pick and choose, and from \insertpages because one cannot insert extra blank pages.

Please note that the inserted pages will be placed on your ConTeXt pages like a new "layer", or floating object. This means that your existing headers, footers, crop marks will still be printed on top of or behind the inserted pages.

If you want to insert pages as completely independent pages between your existing ConTeXt pages, use \startpagefigure.



Insert the first 30 pages of file.pdf, scaled down to 95%.
