How to eliminate unnecessary page break in LaTeX?

I have the following problem: In the end of my document, the last 2 lines appear on an empty new page. However, it looks esthetically ugly, and I would like the 2 lines to continue on the previous page, and end the document with a full page, even with the price of smaller margin or more condensed text. How can I achieve that?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


You could enlarge any page by a "single line" using


on that specific page. Two extra lines are obtained by a length of 2\baselineskip, etc. This will increase the bottom margin to accommodate the addition. There is also a "user friendly wrapper" for this function in the form of the addlines package.

  • @YiannisLazarides: That's true - didn't see it in the "Related" posts, and your original suggestion also didn't include it, so I posted. – Werner Nov 25 '11 at 3:11
