I am trying to print an A5 booklet I have set it up with the following
•      Number of Pages: 4
•      Paper Size: A5
•      Facing Pages is Ticked
•      Portrait is checked
When I go to print it I simply cannot get it to print in an A5 booklet double sided,
I’ve been trying things like setting it to bring A4 with 2 sheets per page but it doesn’t work

Did you try the "Print booklet" menu entry instead "Print"? This seems to work pretty well, and has the different option to colate/layout the pages for printing ...

With the default settings, what are the results you get that do not work as intended?

When I just go to the Print Booklet and use this function it pritns 2 A4 Sheets not duplex and it puts the A5 on Portrait and cuts off half the image

The solution was only partly answered but we did have to tell the print to go into duplex mode not booklet
