Extra (Unseen) Pages showing up when I convert to PDF

Copper Contributor

In order to upload my file into the publishing website, I have to convert to pdf. 


When I do this, extra pages are showing up in my document.


In Word, the document pages go as follows:


end of chapter 9

blank page

Section Introduction

blank page

beginning of chapter 10


the end, section intro, and beginning are all on the odd pages.


This is where I want them.


In Acrobat, page 83 and Section Intro are right where I want them.  They align with the Word document, but then there is an extra page.  Acrobat will let me delete the extra page, but if I do, the pages now shift. Instead of the even pages being on the left hand side of the book, they are on the right hand side.


How do I rid myself of the extra hidden page that has to be in Word somewhere?


Thank you for your help.

Check with your publisher to make sure. You may want to actually have those blank pages.

They are likely the result of odd-page section breaks which are generally the way you want to start chapters.
