Hi, all. Sorry if this is a bit of a Noob question - I have tried searching
Google without success.

I'm using FrameMaker 6.0. I have a document with a number of chapters, and I
want the first page of each chapter to always be a right side page. All of
the chapters are in one FM file - I COULD break them out into separate FM
files if I have to, but I'm trying to avoid that (largely to cut down on the
work load).

I have created a Master Page called "Chapter_First" for these first pages,
and have applied it through the Master Page Usage function. If it was
working, I would expect to see blank left side pages between chapters (some
of the chapters are only one page long). These blank pages are not
appearing. I have also tried just applying the Right master page to the
chapter start pages, but this also does not add the blank pages.

I could, of course, force page breaks, but the document is still going
through some edits which might affect pagination, so I don't think this is
the best approach.

Does anyone know if there is a way to force Frame to make a page always be
on the right? Or should I just break the chapters out into their own FM

Thanks in advance.

Kevin Amery.
