Thank you. But I suppose I did not express myself clearly enough: I don't
want to place image files on pages, but I have A3 sla-Files that should be
output to pdf for printing on two A4 pages each by cutting them into
halves. This can be accomplished by changing A3/landscape to A4/portrait
and inserting a second (A4) page. Like this, one A3 page becomes two A4
pages (everything same size as before); they can be glued together by the
user if he likes. But then there is some loss (printer margins) where
Scribus cuts the original A3 page apart.
Solution a: bleeds (not so pretty because there are duplicated areas).
Solution b: still wanted :-)
