I'm looking at the printer setup dialog in Scribus right now.
I want to print say 10 booklets. I already made sure where each page should go
when it is folded. I want Scribus to print page 1-5 in order and then repeat
that for how many copies I chose. Usually if 10 copies is chosen then the
printer would print page 1 10 times then page 2 10 times and so on. Then I
would need to take a page from each packet and assemble the booklet. That's
why I want to print an entire booklet in order one after the other.
