How do you get new chapters to start on an odd page?December 23, 2009 at 9:37 pmParticipants 2Replies 3Last Activity 13 years, 3 months ago
I can't figure this out. What are the steps to ensure that new chapters always start on an odd page? (This would be tied to automatically creating a blank page if the last page of a chapter were an even page.)
Many thanks for your help.

Are you working with a customization of the PDF output? In the stock PDF2 and PDF3 transforms, chapters do start on an odd page. Try removing your customization and see if this is the culprit.

I am using a customization, but I can't abandon my customizations. Is there any other way to do this? What in the XSL files controls this property?

If you don't want to abandon your customizations, I would suggest disabling/enabling parts of your customization to narrow down the problem. Just remove all of the xsl:import statements to your XSL override files, and then add them back one at a time.
It could be an attribute, possibly the “__force__page__count” attribute set from [DITA_OT]/demo/xmfo/Customization/fo/attrs/xm-cfg/commons-attr.xsl, or perhaps your customization overrides some of the templates in [DITA_OT]/demo/xmfo/Customization/fo/xsl/xm_layout_masters_overrides.xsl.
