I’ m working on a book, with poems appearing in french on even pages, and their translation in another language on odd pages.
Easy when a poem is shorter than a page.
When a poem spans over two or more pages, how to make the compile process in order that the reciprocal parts of the poem still appear on left/right pages, instead of e.g. french on two consecutive pages, followed by its translation on two consecutive pages too, breakins the correspondance ?
I don’t want to split manually into chuncks, bercause the writing is still in progress.
I guess you are exporting to pdf? In that case I think the simplest way would be to make sure that every french poem is its own document so you can set it up in compile to always start on a verso page (or is it recto that is left?) and the translations also as their own documents, always starting on a recto page. In those cases that both spans over more than on page you can easily let them swap places in the pdf, afterwards.
