For most impositions I use a very simple "freeware" utility called
"Gimpose" ( which is written for Windows but
runs  perfectly under Wine. It does the most common kinds of
impositions, including saddle-stitch booklets, two pages per sheet,
duplicate pages side by side, and cut stacks.

When I need to do more complicated impositions, I have to fire up
Windows XP in a Virtual Box and run Acrobat Pro with the "Quite
Imposing" plugin (which are both rather pricey).

When you have a landscape double sided sheet with two pages printed on
each side [letter or tabloid sized paper], you need to arrange the
pages in a set order for the pages to print out on the correct sheet
and suchfor the colation and folding of the sheets into a book format.

I use to do a lot of multi-sheet newsletters printed onto tabloid
paper.  I ended up making a template in PageMaker that had the pages
listed in the placement for printing and not for the standard document
printing.  I had a template for each page count version of the
newsletter, such as 2 or 3 tabloid sheets.

I would like to find an extension or external package that would print
out the pages in the proper order for the placement on the sheets
instead of doing it manually. Since I use both Windows and Linux, I
could use a package for either OS.

Anyone know of a package or extension that would do the work?
