I'm having a few questions about KOMA script configuration and would love if you guys could help me out:

  1. How can I make all chapters only appear on even pages?
  2. How can I make all sections NOT have pagebreaks after each other?

Welcome to tex.sx! What you describe is actually the default behaviour of the scrbook class. Please provide more information or -- even better -- add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. – lockstep Sep 1 '11 at 18:52
@lockstep: Chapters normally start on odd pages, don't they? I think we had such a question (I mean for point 1) already, but can't find it just now. There shouldn't be any page breaks between sections by default, so point 2 is a little confusing. – Martin Scharrer Sep 1 '11 at 18:58
@Martin: Dang! Vany: Excuse my ignorance -- will try to come up with an answer. – lockstep Sep 1 '11 at 19:02
Done! But we really need information with regard to point 2. – lockstep Sep 1 '11 at 19:05
My guess regarding point 2 is a misuse of \include. – Ulrike Fischer Sep 2 '11 at 7:51

Re point 1: Use the class option open=left.

I just was going to suggest to redefine \cleardoublepage to the macro shown in tex.stackexchange.com/questions/11707/…, but this is of course much better! – Martin Scharrer Sep 1 '11 at 19:04
@Martin: and TomBombadil did it for you ;-) – ℝaphink Sep 2 '11 at 12:35
