I used to have twelve pages in my book but when I added two pages to my booklet InDesign added in two blank pages with one of them being on the back cover. Is there a way to keep the page that should be on the back cover on the back?
Would it allow me to have a back cover if I made my book 16 pages? I did that and it is still giving me a blank back cover.
It should, but you must set the print dialog in the setup to include blank pages. Sounds like you've added your pages, but they are not being included, so ID thinks it's still a 14-page file.
Ok, that makes sense. I didn't see the print blank pages option at first because I was still in the print booklet dialog. In the booklet dialog it only shows the option to print blank printer spreads. I wonder how those options are different? Print blank printer spreads will only work it you have two blank spreads in a row?
A spread would only be blank if both pages were blank, but it really has nothing to do with having two blank spreads in a row. If you are manually duplexing the job you might want to not print blank spreads, but I think the risk of missng where it goes is so great that it's not worth it.
