Leave even pages empty on answer sheet for double sided printing

Added by Martin Klima over 3 years ago

Hi,
I'm trying to print the tests with a separate answer sheets. The tests have many questions (~150) resulting in multiple answer sheets for a student.
What I want to do is to print the whole file as double-sided (duplex) but I do not want the answer sheet to be double sided.
Solution: I need every even page on the answer sheet empty.
Thanks for help!

Martin

Use: \AMCcleardoublepage
It is in the manual.

I know this command, but it does something else. My situation is the following: The answer sheet reaches across 1.5 pages. What I need to print is first page, blank page, second page, blank page.
If I had more pages on the separate answer sheet it would have the same pattern.
The reason is as I mentioned before, that I want to print the whole file as double sided but the answers are easy to scan as single sided.
Thanks !

Why not do one-sided printing when you send answer sheet to printer?

...or look at latex packages like everypage,everyshi,bobhook. But I have not
personally verified the possibility.

Thanks, that should work. I'll look into it.

The answer sheet reaches across 1.5 pages.

If you need only one blank page, you can start from something like https://tex.stackexchange.com/questions/36880/insert-a-blank-page-after-current-page#36881

Unfortunately \afterpage does not work with multiple columns. This does not work. I need every even page blank, not only the first one.
Nothing seems to work :-(

Pl try this:

\documentclass[]{article}
\usepackage{everyshi,blindtext,ifthen}
\EveryShipout{\ifthenelse{\isodd{\thepage}}{\  \clearpage}{}}
\begin{document}
\blindtext[30]
\end{document}
