I want to have a centred title page for my twoside report document and I am following these instructions:

Centered title page in twoside report

Here is a minimum (not) working example:

\documentclass[twoside]{report}

\usepackage{auto-pst-pdf}
\usepackage{pdfpages}
\usepackage{ifpdf}

\ifpdf
  \usepackage{tikz}
\else
  \usepackage{pst-eucl}
\fi

\begin{document}

\includepdf{pdf-sample.pdf}

\tableofcontents

\newpage

\chapter{Introduction}

This is content.

\end{document}

But the first page appears to be blank. As soon as I remove either \ifpdf... or \usepackage{auto-pst-pdf}, the title page appears in my document. I use pdflatex --shell-escape for compiling. Unfortunately, I need both options for my document. Any help how to work around this problem will be appreciated.

that is a bug in the current tikz. Use:

\listfiles
\documentclass[twoside]{report}
\usepackage{auto-pst-pdf}
\usepackage{pdfpages}
\usepackage{tikz}
\usepackage{pst-eucl}
\begin{document}

\includepdf{pdf-sample.pdf}

\tableofcontents   
\newpage
\chapter{Introduction}

This is content.   
\end{document}

However, this gives a warning that auto-pst-pdf cant create a file. But that doesn't hurt, because there is no file to create ...

    I tried this solution, but it does not solve the problem. The first page is still blank.

  • Try \ifpdf\includepdf{pdf-sample.pdf}\fi. However, here is my generated PDF: comedy.dante.de/~herbert/tmp/test.pdf
