Since there was the thread about the "Book Preview", I was wondering if
there is either an extension out there or a external program that would
print the pages of the document in the correct order for "Book Printing".

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?

LibreOffice help:
Printing a Brochure
You can print a Writer document as a brochure or a booklet. That is, Writer prints two pages on each side of the paper, so that when you fold the paper, you can read the document as a book. When you create a document that you want to print as a brochure, use portrait orientation for the pages. Writer applies the brochure layout when you print the document.
To Print a Brochure
1. Choose File - Print.
2. In the Print dialog, click Properties.
3. In the properties dialog for your printer, set the paper orientation to landscape.

If your printer prints duplex, and because brochures always print in landscape mode, you should use the "duplex - short edge" setting in your printer setup dialog.

4. Return to Print dialog, and click the Page Layout tab page.
5. Select Brochure.
6. For a printer that automatically prints on both sides of a page, specify to include "All pages".
7. Click OK.
If you print a document in portrait on a landscape page, two opposing sides in a brochure will be printed next to each other. If you have a printer with double-sided printing capability, you can create an entire brochure from your document without having to collate the pages later. If you have a printer that only has single-sided printing capability, you can achieve this effect by first printing the front pages with the "Front sides / right pages /odd pages" option marked, then re-inserting the entire paper stack in your printer and printing all the back pages with the "Back pages / left pages / even pages" option marked.

If LibreOffice prints the pages in the wrong order, open the Options tab page, select Print in reverse page order, and then print the document again.
I hope this is what you are looking for.
