What you are missing is that the "layout" options in Scribus are intended

It's a terminology matter.
2 fold, 3 fold, 3 and 4 fold terms are misleading
could be better understood if it read Display 1, 2, 3, 4 pages across.
And even better if it went to 8 pages across.
And even better still if one could have a choice of how many pages across and 
the number displayed was different for each row of pages

For instance top row 4-6 pages
next row 2 pages,
next row n-n pages
and so on
This would allow great visualisation in publications which contained single page 
double sided inserts.

Instead of selecting the number of pages across,( limited to max 4) the 
selection could be handled within the <add New page>< At end> <Before Page > or 
<After page> with an additional field a <At Row n> instead of having to have 
that page selected before making an insert.
