I’m in paperback formatting hell, as I never learned how to properly format while writing and I’m paying for it now.
I’m working on some workarounds to push sections on to new pages, but there are a few places where I need to insert a completely blank page (front and back) in order to get the next chapter title to show up where I want it.
I’ve tried using folders with page break separators, but it seems to ignore the folder unless I have something in it. I’ve been using symbols to try and force the break, but even then I’m not getting that solid front/back blank. Any help?
If I may : inserting that blank page will impact following chapters.
And I don’t know how you’ll know where to insert a blank page other than compiling and having a look.
It doesn’t seem like the most logical approach to me.
I am pretty sure you could access features designed especially for that in a third party app after compiling.
(I am a bit surprised that Scrivener can’t handle it in the page settings or separators of the compile format. I thought it could already.)
If yes, LibreOffice is open source. (Free)
Compile to RTF or .odt and do the final tweaks such as this in LO.
(RTF works flawlessly and is Scrivener’s native file format. I recommend compiling to that file format.)
I linked to the how to (chapters start on odd pages) in my previous post.
