Hi Geert,

You can define a simple page master named blank like this:
<fo:simple-page-master master-name="blank"
        <fo:region-body region-name="region.body" display-align="center"/>

And stick this into a page sequence master like this:

<fo:page-sequence-master master-name="Chapter">
        <fo:repeatable-page-master-alternatives maximum-repeats="no-limit">
                <fo:conditional-page-master-reference master-reference="blank"
master-reference="odd.page" odd-or-even="odd"/>
master-reference="even.page" odd-or-even="even"/>

So when every chapter is put into its own page sequence master and you force
the chapter to end on an even page, then a blank page without header or footer
gets added.

Onderwerp:  [xsl-fo] how to suppress footers in a blank page


I am adding a blank page if a chapter in a book starts on an even page, using
break-before The footer and header are calculated dynamically with markers and
all that How can I prevent the footer from appearing on the blank page.

I thought of having a conditional page master reference excluding the
region-before and region-after But I suspect that I will get an error since I
am stuffing things in a region that is not defined...

Any suggestions?
