I am preparing a thesis. In order to reduce the number of physical sheets of paper, I need to print certain figures/tables on the verso side. However the university regs state that, while figs/tables may appear on the verso, the body text must appear on the recto side.
I would like to therefore output the vast bulk of the work on the recto page, but with occasional verso pages. Ideally they would be numbered as a "subpage" of the preceeding recto page (e.g. 131, 131a, 132...) or similar.
The approach which I will tentatively adopt is to use a "twoside" flag, then have "empty" and non-numbered verso pages until a page with content is required.
I'm sure I'm not the first person to have had a similar issue, but am unable to imagine other ways of posing the question.
