Chapter Headings on their own page? Help!

Hello,

I am new to epubs and only ever converted one PDF before but that worked fine.

I have downloaded a PDF which I would like to convert into an epub.

I have converted it to an .RFT and played with styles in word before trying to put the file back into calibre.

When I then convert the RFT into an epub, Calibre automatically adds a table on contents for me without me asking for it. I don't mind this but its picking up on the chapter headings (bonus) but then add the chapter content onto a seperate page.

How can I stop this from happening please?

Thank you very much

Lee

I never have any TOC generated by calibre for an ePub create a separate page, which means I don't have enough info to help you. Reading this Sticky post may reveal what is happening.

i seen this occasionally when converting with heuristics enabled ( in order to force one big XHTML to be split into chapter size chunks ).

if it bugs me I go into sigil & laboriously merge chapter headers & chapter text, one by one

it s a poor-quality source issue usually.

Thanks
