Good point...however, on manuals with an odd page count, I need the interim blank page to include the text, "This page intentionally blank." When I paginate for even pages, Frame inserts a blank page with no way (that I know of) to insert text automatically.

Then, your final file would just have one page, and would make the total page count to be even. Thus, it's the second-to-last file in the book that would flex (adding a blank page when necessary to make the page count odd), and that could be done automatically. You could thereby avoid the dual-book approach.

FM won't delete pages that use a custom master page (or, since it starts deleting empty pages at the end of the file, any non-custom pages followed by a custom page). If you have to have a custom master page, you might be able to make it work using the Apply Master Pages feature. I'm not sure, since I haven't used it. You'd have to be able to change your last page back and forth between the standard master page and the custom page, maybe by importing the appropriate MasterPageMaps table (reference pages). If you have FrameScript, a script could switch out the master pages. Third possibility: Put the back cover into its own one-page file. HTH! Richard ------ Richard G.
