It's the value on the printer's website, I used the same last time
(older Scribus, with slightly larger pages to make the bleed since
Scribus did not support it back then), results were OK.

This lets me export my 8 page document as 8 individual pdfs or as a
single one. However I want 4 pages per pdf page: Inside scribus I have
the first 4 pages next to each other and the last 4 next to each other
the "4-fach gefaltet" (I suppose it's called "4-fold", "folded 4 times"
or something in English) document layout setting.
The printer will print my document on one sheet of paper, then fold it.
They want one pdf page per side of the sheet.

Hmm, I can only convert to outline, it won't let me embed (was always
like that, even in older Scribus versions).
