In order to understand each other we have to be talking about the same
thing. I was discussing File->Printer Setup -> Properties
and you are discussing File->Print->Properties.

Nothing would stop you from choosing Landscape under either of these
Properties tabs. Then you could go to File->Print-> Page Setup and
choose 4 pages per page. Why should you have to go to Format-> Page at
all?
