Blank pages

When converting from a Mobipocket format eBook, sometimes I get some blank pages. These blank pages do not exist in the original file. Most notably is after the cover image. There are blank pages in other places as well.

Can this be fixed in the next release please?

Jon,

I usually copy the HTML extracted from Mobi in Word so I can format the books to my tastes. I've noticed that on many of them, there are two page breaks where I would have expected one (after title page, between chapters, etc). That may be why you're getting a "blank page"...

HTH

That is the book I converted into LRF. The settings I used were....

mobi2lrf --top-margin=0 --bottom-margin=0 --left-margin=0 --right-margin=0 --wordspace=1 --base-font-size-10 "Sherlock Holmes Omnibus.prc"

Page 3 has a blank page for example. There are others as well here and there. None in the middle of a chapter though. They are between chapters where they occur.

Those aren't actually blank pages. They're blank paragraphs. Try increasingthe fontsize and see. Nothing calibre can do about that.
