I got a book I am trying to set up. In the book most pages don't have a footer, only those that start a chapter do, and this is creating problems with setting the pages bottom margins.
If I don't put includefoot in my page geometry, the footer on the chapter pages gets put almost at the edge of the page. However if I do, it means all the other pages that don't have a footer appear to have a larger bottom margin then they should.
I have tried a lot of variations of putting
\afterpage around the
\chapter command (or even redefining the
\chapter command to include them. But nothing is working.
