Prevent blank pages before chapters in PDF output

Post by ReRag » Thu Jun 11, 2015 2:26 pm

Hi,

when I convert a DITA-Document to PDF, is there a way to remove the blank pages right before a new chapter? I think this happens because it is configured to create a two page layout (the blank page only occurs when the chapter does not start on an uneven page number). Is there some kind of property that changes this behaviour?

I appreciate any help! :idea:

Hi,

There is a PDF customization book called DITA For Print which seems to cover this:

I am facing the same issue and the link shared by Radu does not exist anymore. Please share the customization solution, if available.

I am new to oxygen DITA and keep facing minor issues.

What PDF transformation are you using, the one based on XSL-FO or HTML5+CSS? For the later, please see the page breaking documentation topic: https://www.oxygenxml.com/doc/versions/ ... e_breaking
