I use the report document class, and I would like that chapters always start on the right hand side, anyone an idea how this could be easily done?


1 Answer 1


Use \documentclass[twoside,openright]{report}. (The openright class option without twoside will not suffice, as LaTeX views every page as "right" page in oneside mode.)

    Does openright only work for report? I use scrreprt and it does not seem to work.

    @Socrates KOMA-Script is a more advanced documentclass and its options are defined as key=value pairs, indeed in the documentation can be read "headings=openany", or "headings=openright" etc for this setting.
