# blank page after includeonly

Following this previous post regarding a conflict between \includeonly and the hyperref package, here is another problem I found with \includeonly.

With the following mwe,a first compilation pdflatex main.tex yields a full pdf where everything is fine. Though, after uncommenting the line with \includeonly a new run of pdflatex main.tex yields a pdf with an extra blank page...

The issue is related to the use of either the minitoc or float package.

I am aware of this fix proposed in an older post but it creates a conflict with the hyperref package post.

Do you see any way around it ?

Here is main.tex:

\documentclass[]{article}
\usepackage{float}
\usepackage{minitoc}

% my choice of chapter
%\includeonly{chapitre_1}

\begin{document}
% plan de cours
\include{description}
% chapitre 1
\include{chapitre_1}
\include{chapitre_1_exercices}
% chapitre 2
% ...
\end{document}


and where description.tex is:

\newpage
\section*{Plan de cours pour la session d'}
Le cours \dots


chapitre_1.tex is:

\newpage
\section{Chapitre 1}

\label{chap_1}
% table des matières
\newpage
\subsection{Introduction}
Contenu du chapitre\dots
\newpage
page supplémentaire pour afficher les numéros de page


and chapitre_1_exercices.tex is:

\newpage
\subsection{Exercices d'application}
Liste d'exercices\dots

• Try adding \usepackage{newclude} to your preamble. (This was in the link you provided.) – erik Apr 18 '18 at 14:47
• This does not seem to change anything... I still get the extra blank page... – Alain Apr 18 '18 at 16:38
• Even if you delete your .aux files? – erik Apr 18 '18 at 17:58
• @erik yes, I still have my extra blank page after deleting all the .aux files and recompiling... – Alain Apr 18 '18 at 20:59
• Try without loading the minitoc package. – erik Apr 18 '18 at 21:14
