Why does paragraph justification affect next page?

I've been looking, but still haven't found a fix for this. When I left justify the cover image to my ebook I get the desired outcome (no blank first page), however the left justification also automatically left justifies the title on the following page, which needs to be centered. It's as if the pro...

Re: Why is there a blank first page on my book?

I figured out I needed to set paragraph settings to default (left justified) and then enter the preamble: \usepackage{etoolbox} \let\oldgeometry\restoregeometry \patchcmd\oldgeometry{\clearpage}{}{}{} as well as \newgeometry{margin=0pt} before and \oldgeometry after the inserted document. This actu...

Paragraph Settings affect following Pages

The first page I need to have justified to the left. On the second page, the title at the top of the page needs to be centered.

The problem is that whenever I change the alignment on one page, LyX will automatically make the change on the other page as well.

Re: Why is there a blank first page on my book?

I don't think it has anything to do with having it centered. I set the thing to default (i.e. left justified). And it still generates a blank page. As a side note, (because I don't want to get into it here) when I adjust the inserted jpg or pdf so that its left justified and not centered, it also au...

Re: Why is there a blank first page on my book?

Otherwise, please also post the file you include in your cover, for a real test. What do you mean by this? You want me to attach the one-page pdf file of the cover? The cover was produced by creating a new document, setting all margins to zero, and then inserting the jpg file as a graphic float. Th...

Re: Why is there a blank first page on my book?

If you look at the lyx file I attached, you can see that I used the pdfpages function to insert the one-page cover file. This generates the extra blank page at the beginning.

Even if I select the jpg file using pdfpages, I will still get a blank first page.

Re: Why is there a blank first page on my book?

Thanks mate. I've deleted most everything, and kept the settings the same, so that the lyx file I attached only works out to about 24 pdf pages.

Why is there a blank first page on my book?

I tried to add the front cover, and I succeeded. However, Lyx also adds another completely blank page before my cover page, so that the first page of my ebook is completely blank!

Why is it doing that, and how can I delete the blank page?

Re: KOMA-Script | Heading with horizontal Line

I put a couple of horizontal lines on either side of the title and author (Insert ! Special Formatting ! Horizontal line). This is followed by a vertical fill from the Insert ! Special Formatting ! Vertical space dialogue. Vertical fills are “rubbery” lengths that fill up as much space as they can. ...
