  • Could you please give us information on your compilation process? How do you get to the PDF file?

  • A priori, \usepackage[pdfpagelayout=TwoPageRight]{hyperref} but probably it will be ignored by your viewer. A posteriori, most probably you could set a "Two Page view" option in the viewer menu or so, but anyway, depends on the viewer too.

  • Agreed but requester is asking for single page layout thus he'd try: \usepackage[pdfpagelayout=SinglePage]{hyperref} instead.

  • @Ivan, I do not be sure if I add what you wanted, but if not this that you want to see, please, let me know.

  • @Ivan What slip of the tongue! As single page is the usual without doing anything, I answered to the opposite, haha.

I solved my problem. I will put the solution here in the case someone has the same problem.

I read the document 'READ.md' which came with the template for my thesis and there was written that the standard print of version of the PDF document was programmed to be 'twoside', then I would need change where was written 'print' by 'oneside' in the documentclass, i.e.,

\documentclass[a4paper,12pt,times,numbered,index, print]{Classes/PhDThesisPSnPDF}


\documentclass[a4paper,12pt,times,numbered,index, oneside]{Classes/PhDThesisPSnPDF}
