Question Sigil creating blank pages when publishing ePubs

When I save an ePub created in Sigil and view it in Adobe Digital Editions, I'm getting blank pages randomly throughout. Is anyone else experiencing this? If so, have you found a solution to why this is happening?

Can't know without seeing an example of the code. ADE wouldn't be adding random blank pages normally.

And Sigil doesn't create any pages--blank or otherwise. Page-breaks are controlled by a) starting a new physical file or b) css page-break-before|after properties.

A blank page in ADE happens when the last line in a flow hits the very bottom of the ADE window.

Yup, indeed. It's because you're viewing the book in multipage mode, with the reader opened to 2-3 "pages" or screens wide.

ADE's default behavior is that it always, always, starts a new "chapter" (new HTML file) on a left-most or left-hand page. So, if you're reading along, and you come to the end of chapter 9, in the left-hand pane, you'll see 1-2 "blank screens" until you flip through to the next "page" whereupon you'll see the beginning of Chapter 10, on the left-hand page/screen.

The blank pages are illusory. Change the ADE reading pane to single page view, and you'll see that these imaginary bug pages disappear.

In regards to the "blank page", is it the previous page or the one after that is causing the issue?

<div id="tab-1" aria-labelledby="ui-id-1" role="tabpanel" class="ui-tabs-panel ui-corner-bottom ui-widget-content" aria-hidden="true" style="display: none;">
<p>7-4. The sustainment staff has to be tied into every aspect of operations. They must monitor operations throughout and anticipate the needs of the CAB. They are subject matter experts in their areas and must be adaptable to any unforeseen situation. The CAB S-1 and S-4 are the two primary staff officers and sections responsible for sustainment along with the medical platoon leader.</p>
</div>

<div id="tab-2" aria-labelledby="ui-id-2" role="tabpanel" class="ui-tabs-panel ui-corner-bottom ui-widget-content" aria-hidden="true" style="display: none;">
<p>7-5. The medical platoon provides Role 1 medical support to the CAB and the supporting FSC. The medical platoon triages, treats, and evacuates casualties or returns them to duty. It stocks medical supplies and provides Class VIII support to company medical teams. It performs operator maintenance of the battalion’s medical equipment and coordinates for biomedical equipment repair through the BSMC. The medical platoon's survivability and mobility are increased by the use of Armored evacuation vehicles and aid stations. The medical platoon leader/physician and physician assistant oversee BAS operations. (Refer to FM 4-02 (<a href="http://www.apd.army.mil" target="_blank">http://www.apd.army.mil</a>) for more information.) The medical operations officer, a medical service corps officer, coordinates the operations, administration, and logistics of the medical platoon. His duties include the following:</p>
<ul>
<li>Overseeing the daily administrative and logistical operations for the medical platoon.</li>
<li>Coordinating medical evacuations of patients to the BSMC.</li>
<li>Supporting medical platoon personnel that are providing direct support to the maneuver companies.</li>
</ul>
</div>

<div id="tab-3" aria-labelledby="ui-id-3" role="tabpanel" class="ui-tabs-panel ui-corner-bottom ui-widget-content" aria-hidden="true" style="display: none;">
<p>7-6. The battalion HHC is responsible for the administrative and sustainment support for the HHC and battalion staff and its command posts. It has a supply section to provide unit-level supply and armorer support to the Soldiers and equipment of the battalion headquarters.</p>
</div>

<div id="tab-4" aria-labelledby="ui-id-4" role="tabpanel" class="ui-tabs-panel ui-corner-bottom ui-widget-content" aria-hidden="true" style="display: none;">
<p>7-7. The BSB is the BCT’s organic sustainment unit. The BSB commander, assisted by the support operations officer (SPO) manages sustainment operations (including HSS) for the BCT commander. The SPO is the key interface between the supported units and the BSB. The SPO plans and monitors support operations, and makes necessary adjustments to ensure support requirements are met. The SPO requests and coordinates augmentation with the higher echelon when requirements exceed capabilities. The BSB also has a sustainment automation management officer who assists with maintenance of logistics-related standard Army management information systems (STAMIS), very small aperture terminal (VSAT), and combat service and support automation information systems integrated throughout the BCT.</p>
<p>7-8. The BSB can have up six FSCs and three other companies in addition to its HHC (See Figure 7-5). The BSB companies are:</p>
<ul>
<li>Distribution company.</li>
<li>Field maintenance company.</li>
<li>Brigade support medical company.</li>
<li>Forward support companies (one for each CAB, cavalry squadron, and field artillery battalion).</li>
</ul>

</div>

<div id="tab-5" aria-labelledby="ui-id-5" role="tabpanel" class="ui-tabs-panel ui-corner-bottom ui-widget-content" aria-hidden="true" style="display: none;">
<p>7-9. The role of the FSC is to provide direct logistics support to the supported battalion. The FSC provides the supported commander with dedicated logistics assets organized specifically to meet the battalion’s requirements. An FSC provides field feeding, bulk fuel, general supply, ammunition, and field maintenance. The FSC commander receives technical logistics oversight and mentoring from the BSB commander. FSC commanders must have a continuous relationship with the BSB SPO. The BSB commander will utilize the SPO to ensure that all FSC commanders understand the BSB commanders brigade logistics support plan. The FSC commander is the senior logistician for the CAB. The FSC commander assists the battalion S-4 with the battalion logistics planning and is responsible for executing the logistics plan in accordance with the BSB and supported battalion commander’s guidance. FSC commander is responsible for executing the sustainment plan in accordance with the CAB commander’s guidance. The FSC receives supplies and specialized maintenance support from the BSB. (Refer to ADRP 4-0 (<a href="http://www.apd.army.mil" target="_blank">http://www.apd.army.mil</a>) for more information.) The FSC is organized as in Figure 7-6 to support—</p>
<ul>
<li>Food and water (Class I).</li>
<li>Fuel (Class III).</li>
<li>Ammunition (Class V).</li>
<li>Repair parts (Class IX).</li>
<li>Maintenance and recovery.</li>
<li>Supply and distribution.</li>
</ul>
<div id="image_container">
<img src="../Images/Figure_7-6.jpg" alt="" title="" class="caption_image"/>
<p class="caption_text">Figure 7-6. Forward support company</p>
</div>
<p>7-10. The FSCs normally operate in close proximity to the battalion. The location of the FSC is determined by the battalion. The distance separating the FSC and the battalion is METT-TC dependent and will vary based upon the mission, situation, and environment. The FSC has distinct field maintenance teams to support each Armor and mechanized Infantry company. These teams generally have a direct support relationship to their supported companies.</p>

CHANGE THE READING VIEW TO SINGLE PAGE. Are you saying that you're getting a blank page, in ADE, when it's in single-pane view?

ETA: What's up with the tabbed content? You're trying to see/use that, in ADE???

For whatever reason, I'm only getting blank pages in ADE in desktop mode. On my phone and an iPad I don't get any blank pages.

You need to stop saying phone and iPad like they are the reading apps. You need to say what app(s) you are using on your phone and iPad.

ADE can give blank pages when the text hits the the very bottom of the screen and there is some sort of blank space that carries over to the next page which shows as blank. That's why it's bad form to use a bottom margin for blank space. Use a top margin.

The tabbed content actually works perfect in ADE. Everything I've created in Sigil works fine. The only issue I'm having is blank pages being generated when I view the ePub in ADE.

I didn't mean to make it sound like my phone and iPad were viewing apps. Of course they aren't. I'm using ADE on all platforms. When viewing on a desktop, I'm getting blank pages. However, on my phone and iPad (using ADE)... no blank pages. It's not a huge deal. I just want to understand why.

View again in ADE where you got the blank pages and change the size of the ADE window and see what happens.

Ok. I didn't see the blank page when I shrunk the text size. So what is causing the blank page?
