Remove blank page

Postby mike1264 » Thu Jul 24, 2014 8:17 pm

Hi,
For a book layout I am trying to publish a 'copyright page' on a left page and a 'table of contents' on a right page. At the moment my code prints a title page (right) [correct] then adds an empty interleaf page (left) [wrong] then the copyright page (right) [wrong] and a table of contents (left) [wrong]. Can anyone suggest a way of getting rid of the interleaf page?

\documentclass[10pt,english,british,twoside,openany]{scrbook}

Use only one titlepage environment for the titlepage and the copyright page and insert \clearpage and \thispagestyle{empty} between them:

\documentclass[10pt,
        %english, % removed because of british
        british,twoside,openany]{scrbook}

        \usepackage{microtype}
        \usepackage{ragged2e}
        \usepackage[demo]{graphicx}
        \usepackage[british]{babel}
        \pagestyle{scrheadings}
        \addtokomafont{pageheadfoot}{\slshape}
        \addtokomafont{pagehead}{\tiny}
        \addtokomafont{pagefoot}{\small}
        \addtokomafont{disposition}{\rmfamily}% rm for chapter headings
        \ohead{\leftmark}
        \ihead{Ben Francis}
        \ofoot{\mytitle}
        \cfoot{\pagemark}

Elke,
One small question - how do I insert a blank page before a 'part' page in the same document?

Thanks,
Mike

If the part page should be a right hand page:

...
\cleardoubleoddpage
\part{Part title}
%\cleardoubleoddpage 
...


Best regards
Elke
