Can someone settle my mind please here? Has the page size setup changed at some point for doing brochure printing from Writer?

I don't do this too often, so my memory may be wrong. However, I find this week that to make an A5-size booklet, I need to create A4 pages with scaled up contents, that are then scaled down [factor sqrt(2)] by LO and printed 2-up on A4 paper when 'brochure' is selected. Paper size and orientation is greyed out in the print dialogue.

I'm pretty certain (and the one example I can find from OOo days in 2006 seems to bear this out) that once upon a time, I'd have had to create an A5 document, specify A4 landscape paper, and brochure mode would then print my A5 pages unscaled, 2-up.

Is my memory wrong? If things have changed, what was the rationale? - the latter way seem IMO much more convenient.
