Hi :)
When returning or just going through old emails it helps to start at the
most recent first.  That way you can save yourself the effort of replying
to threads that have already been solved.

I found that moving to an email client that threads messages was a huge
boon.  GMail calls them "conversations" rather than threads but it's about
the same.  VERY useful!   Now it's fairly easy for me to see all (well,
most) related emails that follow on from each other and maybe reply to
points from each different person in a single email.  Fantastic!!

Wrt names of things.  I've heard people use the same words to describe both
types of things.  I've even heard booklets/brochures being called
"flyers".  I've not heard brochures/booklets being called "gatefold
leaflets/flyers" yet though so i tend to reserve that word for the style
Tim was talking about

Regards from
Tom :)

As for the "brochure" page formatting, I do not use the "printing
option" but manually create the three columns per sheet side and choose the
margins/borders then so it is easier for me to create what I need and see
the results without waiting for the printing stage.

But you are missing the point of the original question, in fact. What
LibreOffice calls a "brochure" (and what was being asked about) is not a
single sheet with columns that can be folded into three (interesting though
that is), but a way of preparing a continuous document with full pages half
the size of the printed paper and then printing them two pages to a side
and - this is the clever bit - having the page images automatically ordered
so that the whole can be folded into a booklet.

If the document has eight pages, for example, printing it as a brochure
will print pages 8 and 1 on one side of one sheet and pages 2 and 7 on the
back. A second sheet has pages 6 and 3 on the front and 4 and 5 on the
back. Fold these together (and possibly staple them along the fold) and you
have a booklet with pages 1 to 8 in order. Try doing that manually - and
then try adjusting the result to print three pages when you find you need a
ninth page!

Sorry, I lost/erased/etc. the original postings before I really read this
thread.  Been offline for a week or so and a lot of posts/threads got
erased [an "oops" happened when dealing with the folder options] due to the
number of unread messages in the User List message folder.

The "brochure" wording is a "booklet" to my printing background.  So I
will have to look into that option more carefully.

The borderless paper options still is valid to force the printer not to
add their own margins/borders when you set your margins/borders to
something less than the printer likes.  I use it all the time when I need
the whole page [side to side, top to bottom] to have printed text or
foreground/background images very close to the edges of the paper, or need
to use a much smaller margin than the printer "likes or requires" when
printing out standard letter or A4 sheets.
