If you're going from A4 to A5, there is some post-export processing that 
can be done.


You could perhaps modify these methods to go the direction you wish, but 
I'm a little worried that going A5 to A4 is going to cause problems, 
since I'm guessing you're enlarging at least some of the content. In 
Scribus, you can save items to the Scrapbook from your A5, then import 
to an A4 page, resizing as needed.
