Steps to reproduce:
1. Set page format as portrait with size less than half A4 in portrait mode with all 0 margin. In my case I use 100mm width while leaving the height unchanged.
2. Add 2 page into drawing making sure there are contents.
3. In the print menu set Page Layout to 2 page per sheet.
4. In the print menu General tab, set printer properties to make sure that it is A4 and portrait.
5. In LibreOffice Draw option set size to "Original Size"
Note the preview in Print windows will then show a scaled version of two half A4 page in protrait mode
Printing will also result to a scaled page.
Since the page is formatted to fit A4 page even when 2 page layout is printed. With all margin set to 0. Expected that no scaling happen.
Alternatively, if margin is applied to the final 2 page layout. There must be a way to set it to print on borderless printer without scaling.
Or a similar way to understand, tune and troubleshoot this issue.

Reporter: do you still have this issue with the latest Draw release?
Created attachment 67774 [details]
Build ID: 165a79a-7059095-e13bb37-fef39a4-9503d18
I understand the previous reply before you about this not being a bug.
Since scaling happen since what printed is 4 x half A4. Or 2 x A4 size
paper. (hence 2 blank half A4)
What I was expecting was 2 x half A4 size or 1 A4 size paper printout.
(with there no blank between)
My LO is not the latest at the moment. Btw, thanks for the email.

Thanks for additional explanation. But I still can not understand. Please, draw picture of how pages are placed currently and how it should be. Draw pages as simple rectangles.
Possible workaround: export to PDF as is, then print from PDF viewer as 2 or 4 pages per sheet.
The attachement that I sent earlier should demonstrate it.
I am printing a custom paper size that is half the width of an A4 (but same
Because it is only half A4 size. Was expecting it to take the whole A4 size
if I use the 2 page per sheet (File >> Print >> Page Layout >> Pages Per
Sheet >> 2).
Simple statement. You have 2 page per sheet and each page is half A4. So 2
page is full A4.
If you look at my last attachment. That is not happening. What happen is
the first half page is followed by blank page. Hence the result is still
two A4 printout that contains 2 valid (half A4 page) plus 2 blank (half A4
Half A4 page is as defined above, acustom page size that is half the width
but same height.
Hope that helps!

The pages are scaled down unnecessarily.
The user format is not used. You can see, that it is not used, if you check "border around page". Such printing with user defined page sizes works well in Calc.
Old bug, not enhancement. Is is still relevant?
Guess its not a bug or fixed. But since the OP didn't respond I close as INSUFFICIENTDATA.
