How can I remove one of the blank page between two chapters.


  • What is the document class (+ options)? Do you have any layout package loaded? How many blank pages do you have between chapters? – Bernard Jul 23 '14 at 12:28
  • what is the intention of the \NewPage command (which looks wrong) Please always provide a complete small document that shows the problem. – David Carlisle Jul 23 '14 at 12:33
  • The document class is : \documentclass[12pt,titlepage,a4paper]{book}, In this way that I create new command I have two blank pages. – rose Jul 23 '14 at 12:34

    Of course you get two, because of \null that makes the current page non empty; but you don't need \NewPage, because \chapter issues \cleardoublepage, so the beginning of chapter2.tex will already insert a blank page if needed, and just one. – egreg Jul 23 '14 at 12:41



Should have the desired effect (the definition leaving \null at the top of the following page seems to be incorrect in all cases, and certainly is not wanted before a chapter heading)


If you are using a big table inside the page then you most probably get a blank space before the table start. Use longtable instead of tabular or table environment.
