In Office 3, one could print two A5's on one A4.

In Office 4 however, that's no longer possible. 
If you have made a document in A5, 
and choose in the print menu 'two pages on one sheet', 
it does nothing when you choose as paper type 'A4':
it remains A5.

please define exactly which LibO version are you using.

please also take a look here: Bug 73313 - Draw doesn't support printing 2 A5 on 1 A4

is it a similar issue?

also consider upgrading to latest LibO release to see if bug is still there.

Changing status -> NEEDINFO for now.

Paroha: Once you answer tommy's q's, please change the status back to 'UNCONFIRMED'.

Set 2 in the Page Layout.
Set the paper size as printer property and check "Use only paper size from printer preferences" in the Options tab of the Print dialog.

I often print two A5 pages on one A4 sheet without problems.
