This question already has an answer here:

How to skip page counting on blank pages created automatically by openright option? I have tried two solutions [1], [2], but none works for me.

Let's say page 9 is the last page of chapter 1 and page 10 is a blank page. The chapter 2 is starting with page 11 on the right currently which is correct except for the page number which should be 10. I want to modify the page numbers only and not to remove the blank page or change the openright. Hope that it's clear now.

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.

  • is what you want (1) to omit the printing of the page number, but keep the right-hand pages with odd numbers, or (2) to have right-handed pages after blank pages numbered consecutively (= even number) after an odd-numbered page preceding the blank? – barbara beeton Jan 17 '18 at 18:01

  • it's clear but rather weird. You would need to display a counter other than page as you need to keep the page counter with the real page numbers as latex chooses the left or right page style and whether a blank page is needed just by checking if the page counter is odd or even. Isn't the reader going to be very confused by such a numbering? – David Carlisle Jan 17 '18 at 19:01
  • @DavidCarlisle That's how they have asked me to do. – R. Toward Jan 17 '18 at 19:05
  • Isn't politely saying no an option? – David Carlisle Jan 17 '18 at 19:07

You can probably do this to change the parity of all the pagestyle related things, but I don't think I would ever do this.
