Sorry, I forgot to mention two other utilities that come with the
Ghostscript package, pdf2ps and ps2pdf. You can save your Scribus file
in ps format, manipulate the pagination with one or two commands from
PSUtils and then use ps2pdf to get to a pdf file. Or if you already
have a pdf file then use pdf2ps as the first step.
If Scribus comes up with a reliable, bug free and understandable
method for doing pamphlet imposition then all this is beside the
point. But until then the proven PSUtils and Ghostscript packages are
there for your use.
