The thing I do not think will be easy is the "up-side-town" text for 5, 6, F, B section of the page. The desktop publishing software I use to use, would not make it easy at all, but major head-scratching and cursing to get a proper flowing text between sections.

I like the Rosary booklet idea. Some of the ladies in this apartment tower would want copies for themselves and their friends.

Creating the 4 column half-height landscaped pages printed one way and then the other, is east to do with LibreOffice. It is as easy as printing duplexed printing with a non-duplex laser printer. One side at a time. It was faster that way even though my b/w laser printer prints duplex.

May I ask what you are you doing that needs this type of printed

be nice to know what you are using it for.
I am using it to create booklets like the ones that appear on this site:
Although the ones I am making are for Buddhist practice, not Catholic.

It is actually very popular with people who are using an analog form of
the GTD(Getting Things Done) method. And if you are into DIY publishing,
they are rather nifty.

As I stated earlier, the printing half of the pages at a time, is the
only "easy" way to do what you need without some type of external
package or extension.
Thank you. I realize that I could do exactly what I want if I used desk
top publishing software. But it seems so close to being possible in
LibreOffice, I thought I would ask.
Since the PocketMod layout seems to be a specific "Patent Pending" style
of "booklet".  The possible "rarity" of that format and the "Patent
Pending" issue might make it very hard to support the decision to create
an extension or external package filter.
It's hard to imagine that it will be possible to patent a way of folding
a piece of paper into a booklet.

Thanks again to everyone who offered suggestions.

Hello everyone,

Print as "Brochure". For example getting a DIN A6 booklet write with
page size DIN A6 and print with setting "Brochure" on DIN A5 paper
I think booklet is only useful for doing two pages side by side.

I realize there are many ways to do booklet printing, for booklets of
various sizes. But I am interested in this very specific method
mentioned in the original post that uses a single side of paper, 8
and no fastener. It's true that the website I linked to has software to
make this conversion from a PDF, but it's not as flexible as I want and
it seemed like it would be possible in LibreOffice.

Thank you all very sincerely for all the suggestions. You have given me
some things to consider.

Best wishes,
