# Page break with \include

I like to print my drafts with big fonts and small margins (i do this in memoir style in a single chapter), but the `\include` comand creates a page break. Is there a way to avoid this and have section after section continuously?

You could use `\input` instead of `\include`. –  Gonzalo Medina May 12 '11 at 23:04
Indeed. See When should I use \input vs \include ? for more details. –  Martin Scharrer May 12 '11 at 23:06
The question doesn't actually have anything to do with memoir; please change the title to something indicative of the actual contents. –  vanden May 13 '11 at 2:52
Could the forced page break be removed by `\cleardoublepage`? –  Harold Cavendish May 13 '11 at 5:40
@Harrold: No, `\include` uses `\clearpage` at the beginning. This is by design. If you don't want a page break don't use `\include`. See also the discussion in Include without pagebreak. –  Martin Scharrer May 13 '11 at 7:44

The `\include` command adds the page break by design and is intended for chapters which will start a new page anyway. The page break is required to make `\includeonly` works properly, e.g. insert the correct page numbers after any skipped chapter. If you simply want to insert your external files use the `\input` macro instead. It does not add a line break. See When should I use \input vs \include ? for a description of the differences of these two macros.
However, if you want to still use `\includeonly` you are in trouble. In this case see the question Include without pagebreak and its proposed solutions.
