I find it easier to let LibO do the sizing. In my case printing A5 documents two up on an A4 sheet.

There is a print option on LibO called PAGE LAYOUT. This will allow you to print one or more pages on the same sheet. However to use this, you need to specify the "full size" page, in your case that would be LETTER. Layout the page as if you are printing a Letter size document then print it at 2 PAGES PER SHEET. The pages will be rotated and printed at half letter size. You do, however, need to specify everything at twice the size as if you were actually using letter size.

Sound complicated but I find it works well.

In practice twice the area means 1.41 in each direction, hence for a final font of 10 point try 14, and change the margins by the same ratio.
