This is not yet the whole story. In Carol's old post the workaround is
to first design the publication in 1) way (that is, set document paper
size = A5 in scribus) and re-arrange pages using psbook(1), and join
them up using psnup(1). Detail of how to do it is here:
However 1) is not my case. I need to design booklet that some image
spans two pages. On some pages a big picture spans from left page to
right page (this is common in booklet design) so I need to design page
in 2) way. In my case perhaps I need first to split each landscape A4
pages into two A5 pages, then psbook, psnup.
However I did not figured out how to do it (split A4 page) yet.
