# Blank pages between pages of the same file and between pages in different files.

I'm writing in the "master document" style, using the \include command, and between pages of the same file included and between pages of different files some blank pages appeared. What do I do to make these pages disappear?

My preamble, with the include commands, is:

\documentclass[12pt,a4paper]{book}

\usepackage[brazil]{babel}

\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage{indentfirst}
\usepackage{latexsym}
\usepackage{amsmath,amssymb,amsfonts,wasysym}
\usepackage[dvips]{graphicx}
\usepackage[top=3cm,left=3cm,right=2cm,bottom=2cm]{geometry}

\begin{document}

\input{Dedicatoria}

\tableofcontents

\input{Cap1}
\input{Cap2}
\input{Cap3}

\end{document}

Are you using \include or \input? Only the first should behave like that. Your question and your code don't match. Also, indenting lines by four spaces will format them as code. –  Carsten Thiel Jan 31 '11 at 12:23
Welcome to tex.sx. You can format code samples by selecting the code and clicking on the 101010 icon. Your question isn't very clear, however. You should be using include{Cap1} instead of \input{Cap1}; although that may not solve your problem. –  Alan Munn Jan 31 '11 at 12:23
@Alan: using \include makes only sense when someone also uses \includeonly. Otherwise \input does the same job and there will be no difference. –  Herbert Jan 31 '11 at 12:29
@Rodrigo:, I edited your question a little to make it more clear (IMHO) and I escaped the \include command in bac-ticks as is common here. Please feel free to revert to your original version if you don't like the changes. –  Yossi Farjoun Jan 31 '11 at 14:08
@Carsten Thiel: well, sorry about the misunderstood! I used both (input and include) and both give the same result! –  Rodrigo Thomas Jan 31 '11 at 18:20

So in case one paragraph in a chapter ends on a right page, the next left page (even page number) will be left blank and the new chapter starts on a new right side. If you don't like this behaviour, use \documentclass[openany]{book} or use \documentclass{report}. The letter creates one-sided documents that only consists of right pages.
