I’m laying out a book, and I want the chapters to begin on the right. I have created a page style for chapter fronts and set it to only be right pages. LibreOffice is correctly making the chapter front odd-numbered pages, even when that means skipping a page number. (I’m trying to make everything work before I go through the whole book and apply styles, so I only have two chapter fronts so far, one of which is the first page because I haven’t inserted the title pages and such yet.)
But when I export a PDF, instead of a blank page 4, I get no page 4 at all. So while the page number at the bottom of the chapter front says “5,” it’s actually page 4 of the PDF.
I have gone to Options: Writer: Print and selected “print automatically inserted blank pages.” It doesn’t help – and it keeps un-checking itself. (Yes, I am closing the dialog box by clicking the OK button.)
Is there anything else I should be doing to make this work automatically, or am I going to have to resort to inserting the blank pages manually?
