I am trying to use the package parallel to typeset some text in two languages. The text in language A should appear on even pages, the text in language B on odd pages. I typeset




Does anybody know why the parallel package breaks the page after the first \ParallelPar? That is, why do I get 5 pages output instead of 3? Is this a feature or a bug of the package or did I do something wrong?

Do you have any idea how to avoid it? –  antonio Jul 11 '13 at 11:10
It is a feature. Talk to the maintainer of the package. Related: tex.stackexchange.com/q/164830 –  LaRiFaRi May 4 at 13:35
