### Layout for odd and even Pages

In a document I have three page and than start a new page count. page 4 of the document become page 1. Because I print it double sided i like the margin shift over add and even. page 4 is even but after the new count is 1 and that is odd. This page (and the next) has the wrong margin. How to fix it? I added an empty page it works but isn't the nice way to do it.
\usepackage[   inner=3.5cm,   outer=1.5cm,	   bottom=3.5cm,   top=3cm]{geometry} \begin{document}\pagenumbering{Roman} \begin{figure}  % bedrijfs logo   \centering   \makebox[0pt][c]{\includegraphics[width=\paperwidth]{Image/LOGO}}\end{figure} \maketitle\newpage\mbox{}\newpage\tableofcontents\newpage\include{010-abstract}\pagestyle{plain}\pagenumbering{arabic}\include{020-report}

But that's the natural way (usually by \clearpage) instead of this dubious new page dimensions. Nevertheless you can try the \newgeometry command from geometry.

And perhaps next time you could be gracious enough to prepare a self-contained and minimal example in order to give an adequate problem description.

however \clearpage is not working. Clearpage just ends the current page. And isn't still a solid way to work. If the document is growing also the table of contents is growing (bigger then one page). I now solved this by putting \cleardoublepage before \pagestyle{plain}\pagenumbering{arabic} this way the new numbering starts always at an odd page (left)
