Document adding a black page every time I put in a heading

Operating System

Papyrus Author Version

I’m 10 chapters in and only now having this problem. Every time I add a new chapter heading it adds a blank page between the end of the last chapter and the beginning of the next one and I can’t seem to get rid of it or find out why it’s doing this. Has anyone else had this problem?

Hey, welcome to the Community!

Depending on your project settings, inserting a new chapter heading does leave an empty page in between the chapters. This is usually for paperback projects, as starting a chapter on an odd page is a common industry standard.

You can change this setting with following steps:

Go to ‘Paragraph’ → ‘Advanced Paragraph Formatting’

Click on ‘Position’ to open the menu for options and select ‘Start of new page’ if you wish to start new chapters from a new page.

Remember to hit ‘Apply’ after changing preferences here.
