[scribus] I chose "Threefold brochure" but the resulting document doesn't have three of anything.

Thanks, Peter.

I had about 9 pages and I zoomed out and I now understand a bit of how
Scribus works.

So if we are wanting to create one paper sheet, as a 3-fold brochure, with
writing on both sides of the paper, we need "6" in New
Document/Options/Number of Pages, correct?
