TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
This has probably been discussed before, but I could not find it in the
archives. Is there an easy way to blank out the header and footer on the
last page of a chapter? I only need to do this if the chapter ends on an
even numbered page and there is no text in the body of the page. Currently
we have to apply a different master page to this page. We would like to make
this an automated process. That way, if we go back and add or remove pages,
the last page will change properly.
While I'm on the subject, do the rest of you leave the headers and footers
on the blank page or do you remove them? Is this a problem when you convert
the document to PDF for online viewing? It seems that you wouldn't want or
need a blank page for online viewing.
