How do I prevent that blank and uneditable page from appearing after a page break in writer?

I am working with page styles for a booklet and normally this is not a problem but now this blank page screws up the right/left page margins for the backgrounds I’m using. Why does a blank uneditable page appear anyhow? Can it be disabled?

That depends on the page style. What page are you inserting? If you insert a manual page break on a right page and set the Next style to Right page, it will include a left page which will then be uneditable. If it’s something else, you need to give more information. You may want to upload a sample file, I’ll help you to the required karma for that, just say so.

Thank you, I think that explains it enough so that I could fix it.
