Standard templates and intentionally blank pages

Postby Webley on Mon Nov 23, 2015 7:43 am


I am using Doc-To-Help 3 with standard with target template D2H_PRNOMARGIN_A4.dotm and Word 2010. When building the word file, a blank page is added at the end of each section so that new sections starts at the right page in the printed manual. This works fine.

However, my customer want the "[This page is intentionally left blank]" on each of these blank pages. Due to heavy use of conditional text, there is no way to predict when these blank pages occur.

Are there any settings in Doc-To-Help or any Word tricks to make the text appear if Doc-To-Help or Word decides to add a blank page?

Any tips are greatly appreachiated! :madcap:

these empty pages are generated by Word. You may recognize their location by watching the page number at the end of their preceding chapter: if the last preceding page number is odd and empty page will be inserted. IF you have a way to recognize them in Word by some algorithm you may have a chance to replace them by Word's search and replace function by the text you want to appear followed by a section break to next page.
