I am using this code (\documentclass[12pt, twoside]{report}) to make my thesis able to print in double-side. I assume it should create some blank pages to have the chapters always in the right. But it doesn't. Any idea please?

  • Left chapters? Do you mean that chapter can begin on a verso page? – user31729 Oct 27 '15 at 15:16
  • Yes, like those we have in books – Maryam Oct 27 '15 at 15:17
  • Normally chapters do start on a right-handed page, i.e. recto (odd page numbers), at least with left-to-right fonts. Try the openany option in addition to 12pt etc. – user31729 Oct 27 '15 at 15:18
  • I tried, but no changes. – Maryam Oct 27 '15 at 15:21
  • \documentclass[12pt,twoside,openany]{report} \usepackage{blindtext} \begin{document} \tableofcontents \chapter{First} \blindtext[10] \chapter{Second} \end{document} -- This will open chapters on left page – user31729 Oct 27 '15 at 15:22
 \documentclass[12pt,openright, twoside]{report}

    Can you expand your answer? – Romain Picot Oct 27 '15 at 15:53
  • add \usepackage[right=3.5in,showframe]{geometry} to check which pages are left and which are right. – Johannes_B Oct 27 '15 at 16:02

    Adding this option: openright will create blank pages, so that the beginning of the chapter is always on the roight. – Maryam Oct 27 '15 at 16:45
