A better solution might be to use Multivalent

Export your document to PDF and the use a BAT-file to make the imposition
and then print it.

I have a BAT-file looking like this:

@echo off
set javarun="c:\program files\java\jre1.5.0_02\bin\java.exe"
set multivalent="c:\path to\multivalent.jar"

%javarun% -cp %multivalent% tool.pdf.Impose -dim 2x1 -layout 2,3,4,1
-paper "297x210 mm" -verbose %*

Paths to java and multivalent will have to be adjusted. This command will
make landscape A4 sheets suitable for duplex printing and folding.
