Suman, 1. FrameMaker is behaving exactly as it should. When you specify in your book that all files begin on a Right (or odd) page, then logically, a Left (or even) page must precede the Right page. You can't go from Odd to Odd, so FrameMaker inserts the bridging page.
2. Book pagination settings override local document pagination settings. However, for a screen PDF, the Left-Right pagination may be irrelevant. So to prevent the automatic addition of blank pages, change the Book Pagination settings to a Single page layout, start the files on "Next Available Page" and for "Before Saving and Printing," define "Delete Empty Pages." The result should be files (chapters) that start on odd or even pages immediately following the end of the previous file. HTH, David David Schor Technical Communication Manager Emblaze-VCON Ltd.

Hello, I created a book having various chapters and applied master pages having double sided layouts. The first pages of all the chapters are right sided. The following is the specification, I provided for pagination: Double sided, Ist Page side - Right, Before Saving and Printing - Make Page Count Even. While trying to delete the empty pages, I specified: Before Saving and Printing - Delete empty pages. But this does not solve my problem. When I update the cross-references, Index, and TOC, these empty pages return. I am creating a pdf from this book and these empty pages are really a turn off...
