Letter ending - unwanted second empty page

Postby byxx » Fri Mar 20, 2020 11:07 pm

Dear Forum,

here is the ending of my letter.

Vielen Dank für Ihren Auftrag.\\
Mit freundlichen Grüßen
%\encl{Lebenslauf\\ Zeugnisse}

I don´t know why there is an additional page in the pdf document. The signature is the last visible item in the pdf on the first page and has some room below.

In my view there is no need for the extra page, that latex generates...

Maybe your usage of \closing is wrong. Usually this is a command with argument and used like \closing{Regards}. But as you have not posted a Infominimal working example but only a code snippet, we even do not know which letter class or package you are using. So this thought is highly speculative.

BTW: Please read the BBCode help for information about how to mark block code. You can even use the "Select code" button to generate a TeX code area.
