One trick is to set up your 'default' left and right pages to be 'intentionally
blank' and then they always apply with no headers or footers.
Of course, that means you need to set up a "pages with h/f" set of masters.
You'll also need to carefully play with the reference pages to apply them, but
this may be a functional combination for you.

Subject: Any way of applying a custom master page to final even page in
Occasionally a chapter file ends on a right page (odd-numbered). Because
the pagination is set to even number of pages, the default Left master is
applied to the final left page (even-numbered) of the chapter. We would
like to apply a special master page devoid of running heads and feet,
except for the page number.
Is there any inbuilt capabilty in FrameMaker for automatically applying or
removing this final custom page depending on whether the page count is odd
or even? I looked at the MasterPageMap table approach but this only
triggers on a paragraph format. By definition, the flow symbol will be on
the immediately preceding right page, so there would be NO paragraph on
the last even page to trigger on.
Is there some way to do this automagically? Or do I have to write a
FrameScript event routine to check all component files in a book and
apply/remove the last custom page on Update Book or whatever. I suppose
writers COULD ensure that a special para appeared on the last even page
but then that's one more manual job to do before generating a PDF which
they don't need.
