    TOPLEAF: Blank page added after contents in V7 output

    We're still testing generating PDFs using XMetal7 and the updated plugin.

    In our stylesheets, none of the page layouts are configured to be double-sided – there are no left/right pages.

    In the V7 output, if the table of contents does not have an even number of pages, then an “intenationally-blank” page is being added after the contents and before the next section, the preface.

    We didn't see this happening in the V6 output, and looking through our V6 stylesheets I can't seem to find a setting that would do that.

    Any ideas as to why this extra page is being added?

    Thanks,

    Janice

    Did you check for a command in the pre-content of MakeToC or endTOC? In the latest default stylesheet, this command appears in the pre-content of mappings for gloassarylist, appendix, chapter, index, part, toc, endRoman, endToC, and MakeToC. If you remove all of those commands or comment them out, I think that would fix the issue.

    Thanks – that worked.

    Strange that we didn't see the same behavior in V6 – the settings were the same.
