Try one of the following: 1. Provide the printer with separate cover files and a file for the manual's content. Funny, I don't have a problem getting my printer service to understand that the second side of each cover file is blank. 2. Make a PDF of a blank page, and keep it for all your projects. Before closing the final PDF, insert the blank page after the front cover and before the back cover. 3. In FrameMaker, start your first manual file with a blank page (an empty paragraph followed by a page break) with double-side pagination starting on the left. Set Format>Page Layout>Master Page Usage>Custom=None for that page. After the last file, create a blank page for the end.

Using Acrobat Professional, I create one PDF using three PDFs: Front cover, Back cover, and manual. I need to ensure that there is a blank page after the Front cover, so that the manual starts on the right. Am I making sense? Since the cover isn't part of the Frame file, the "Make Page Count Even" doesn't help me. I also need a blank page before the Back cover for the same reason. What's the proper way (Page Break?) to achieve this goal? The Frame Online Help talks about blank pages and disconnected pages, but I don't think these tools provide the solution I need. Thank you, -- Angela
