In my custom .cls class file I'm using the following code


This is ok, but I would like to force oneside option. In fact, when I compile, after chpaters that finish with odd numbers, a blank page is inserted. Here an example:

  • Chapter 1 finishes at page 3
  • Blank Page
  • Chapter 2 starts at page 5

Any suggestion? Thank you in advance.

Did you try to use twoside=false and open=any? – Sigur Jan 3 '13 at 16:14
@Sigur Thanks for your reply. Yes I did. The situation is the same. I would remove the blank page (see example). – Lorenzo Boaro Jan 3 '13 at 16:17
What about oneside=true? Also, delete the cleardoublepage. – Sigur Jan 3 '13 at 16:18
@Sigur It works. Didn't see open=any in your previous comment. Please, answer to my question. I will mark as correct. Thank you. – Lorenzo Boaro Jan 3 '13 at 16:23
@Sigur It works also with cleardoublepage. Do I need to remove it? – Lorenzo Boaro Jan 3 '13 at 16:26

As observed by the author on comments above, one solution was possible using open=any.

Only open=any is required to have a working solution. But I will set twoside=false also. Thank you. – Lorenzo Boaro Jan 3 '13 at 16:31
