### Insert blank page at start of document

I would like a title page to appear on a right-side page, following a blank page on the left side,in a book set up to start chapters on any page.


Many thanks,
Mike

I have tested your example (correcting one little mistake and deleting the input-lines).

All title pages are on right hand pages (odd nunmbers). In the main part, some start at even pages (left hand side).
The smart way: Calm down and take a deep breath, read posts and provided links attentively, try to understand and ask if necessary.

Hi Johannes_B ,

Set the outer margin to 1.5in, maybe even load package showframe. With the extreme value, it is much much easier to spot the difference.

Thanks done! My pdf viewer (inside TeXmaker) is reversing the pages When I view the same document in an external pdf viewer the pages are in the right order and the right place.

If not: there are additional commands (\extratitle,\uppertitleback, \lowertitleback,...) to format the title pages. Have a look at the KOMA-Script documentation.
