# \part command before facing pages

Currently I'm typesetting a book where I want to you the \part*{} sectioning command to separate a preface from a text edition that uses faceing pages (eledmac/eledpar).

The problem is that I get two blank pages between the part-title and the beginning of the edition. I guess its because the edition has to start on a even pagenumber (right) and the part command adds a blank page to have the next chapter printed on a odd pagenumber (rightsided).

My favourite option would be to have a part-title on the rightside and the beginning of the edition directly on the following leftside. If you have any advice I'd be very happy.

The following example could serve as an MWE:

\documentclass[11pt,a4paper,BCOR=12mm,DIV=14]{scrbook}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage{eledmac}
\usepackage{eledpar}

\begin{document}
\chapter*{Preface Blablabla}

\part*{Edition}

\renewcommand*{\goalfraction}{0.9}
\begin{pages}
\begin{Leftside}
\beginnumbering
\pstart
Blablabla
\pend
\endnumbering
\end{Leftside}

\begin{Rightside}
\beginnumberingR
\pstart
Blablabla
\pend
\endnumberingR
\end{Rightside}
\end{pages}
\Pages
\end{document}


Use

{\renewcommand\partheademptypage{}


\addpart{Edition} does the same as \part*{Edition}\addcontentsline{toc}{part}{Edition}.

Code:

\documentclass[11pt,a4paper,BCOR=12mm,DIV=14]{scrbook}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage{eledmac}
\usepackage{eledpar}

\begin{document}
\chapter*{Preface Blablabla}

\renewcommand*{\goalfraction}{0.9}
\begin{pages}
\begin{Leftside}
\beginnumbering
\pstart
Blablabla
\pend
\endnumbering
\end{Leftside}

\begin{Rightside}
\beginnumberingR
\pstart
Blablabla
\pend
\endnumberingR
\end{Rightside}
\end{pages}
\Pages

\end{document}


Use

[...]
\begin{document}
{\let\cleardoublepage\clearpage
\chapter*{Preface Blablabla}
\part*{Edition}
