Here's the glitch I encountered with LibreOffice 4.1.

LibreOffice wanted to pick a paper size close to the one I was using. That was A5. Then when I tried to print it 2-up it was always printing on Letter paper (although the printer complained about this) in portrait mode. I fixed it by choosing the option to "Use only paper size from printer preferences"

The process you wish to follow in your first note is something that I was doing all the time. However, the paper you describe is NOT half the size of Legal paper, it is half the size of Letter paper.

Here's what I did: described the page size as 5.5 and 8.5. Created my document. When I was ready to print it, I told it to print on letter size paper in landscape and 2-up. It worked like a charm.

When I moved to Ubuntu 13.10 and therefore LibreOffice 4.1 I came across a little glitch.
