Problem in deleting empty pages

Hi All, I am having problem in deleting empty pages from each chapter. Whenever I delete a large chunk of data from a chapter, the empty pages that are left behind don't get deleted. I have set the pagination settings for the book as following: 1) 1st Page Side = Read from File 2) Before

Hi, It's not really a conflict with something on a master page, but a conflict with the pagination settings on a book level. Your 1st Page Side may have been set to Right for each file (chapter) in your book. If so, FrameMaker will add a left blank page to the previous file. -- Yves Barbion

Alignment of list numbers

On seeing some FrameMaker output, an experienced proofreader has commented on the fact that for numbered lists that run into two digits, the numbers are left-aligned, rather than right-aligned - the implication is that, for example, '9' should be aligned above the '0' of '10'. I must admit

You're probably using a single left tab stop to separate the number from the text. You need to use two, one right-aligned to force the sequence you want. Add a right tab stop to the Basic para tag tab and also add it to the Numbering sequence, so it looks something like: \tn+.\t Art On
