I am new to latex, and I am using a template to write my thesis. The template is available here , The problem I met is that after every "part", there always a empty page, which also takes one page number. Also there is empty pages between "Outline of the thesis" and the main body, and so on. My question is how could I modify the template to control(delete) these empty pages. Which file should I modify? Thank you very much!

  • Thanks. May I ask how should I post the template I am using now? Commented Aug 21, 2014 at 9:25
  • Assuming, it is not too large, just post it in your original question above, select it with the mouse and press CTRL-K to format it as code, before pressing Save

  • It's not just codes from one file, the thing is I don't know which file I should modify. Commented Aug 21, 2014 at 9:36
  • If you are using a template, it is the template you should modify, I would say, if you are not satisfied how the setup is done there.

This behaviour is not caused by your template but by the scrbook-class which is used in this template. The motivation behind this behaviour is that every new part starts on an odd page being on the right hand side in case of double sided printing.

In general this is a desired layout, however if you really, really want to get rid of these empty pages, you can add oneside to the class options


or in case of your template


[this line is probably to be found in your main .tex file]

  • Thank you very much, and also thanks to another person who answered me on the comment but I can not find it anymore :) Commented Aug 21, 2014 at 10:09
  • Glad it solved your problem! The comment you are revering to was also by my, but after looking at the template I decided to move it to this answer. Commented Aug 21, 2014 at 10:20
