Page Layouts

Postby SimonTJ on Mon Mar 22, 2021 9:47 am

Hi Guys,
I'm a noob to Madcap Flare after using FrameMaker for the last 20 years+...... :o
I have a "Master Page Layout" which consists of a page and a cover....
When I build a PDF document, there is always a blank page after the cover page, and I cannot for the life of me remove the blank page.......
If this is embarrassingly easy, then I will take it on the chin! (rather a moment of embarrassment than a lifetime of ignorance!) :lol:

Thanks for your help in advance

Are the cover and topic separate files put together with a toc? You probably have start on even pages or odd pages selected.

Hi SimonTJ, welcome to Flare!

Elaborating a little bit on Isleofgough's post:
  • In your TOC, check the properties for the topic that follows the cover. On the Printed Output tab, make sure you set the Break Type and Page Layout you want to use.
  • Also, if you do not want empty pages, click the Advanced tab, and make sure to uncheck Inject empty pages as needed to ensure TOC nodes start on their selected pages.

For a good overview, check out Flare's help topic, ... reaks1.htm

I hope that helps,
