In my case this seems not to be a question of versioning of AR but
rather a collection of the right tools to work on the printed files.
The way I'm printing A4 pages on A3 sheets to be folded as a simple
newspaper is this:
1. Make a pdf from your Scribus document (PDF 1.4 required)
2. Load the pdf into AR and let it print to kprinter using PS level 3
This will produce a file named print.ps for example.
Then in a shell I type
psbook print.ps printb.ps
psnup -2 -Pa4 -pa3 printb.ps printp.ps
I now have the A4 document spread on the A3 pages and will print the
switching it to A3 portrait (!) and duplexing over the small edge
A long time ago someone here on the list gave me the tip with psbook and
psnup. Maybe this is a way to do what you want? I recently saw that it
should be possible to define a filter setting for kprinter to include
the psbook and psnup programs.
