I just tested File>>Export AS PDF with a 9 page document and got it

thank you for the suggestion but that is one way that doesn't work for
me - because, I have to create a pdf which will be printed by a
company that will also bind the book.
Note, you probably want to use PDF/A-1a which is the archival version.
This should not be a problem for the printer/binder. You will need to
tell them print one-sided not double-sided. One-sided is probably easier
for them because any printer can be used, all printers will print
one-sided documents. You will need to coordinate with the printer/binder
on how they will print the document. You might check with your
program/school to see if they have any recommended printers/binders who
are familiar with your program's thesis requirements.
Within the pdf the back pages have to be blanks in order to be printed
True two-sided printing requires a more expensive printer because the
paper feed is more complex. In the US the only two-sided "printers" I
have seen are larger office copier/printer combinations; most of the
desktop printers print one-sided.
Many people do not have a printer capable of true two-sided printing
because most home and office printers are designed for one-sided
printing. They print one sheet straight through and can not reverse feed
to print automatically on the reverse side. The paper feed is much
simpler, hence less expensive and should be more reliable.

I would modify the default style with correct margins, footers, and
styles I need. I suspect you have a different left and right margin,
once this is set it will be the same for all pages. The page numbers

When you print you should be able print using your printer defaults
for one-sided printing.
I'm trying to create a layout for my thesis in Writer. I know how to
work (reasonably well) with page/paragraph styles.
My problem is this: I have to hand in my thesis with only one side
of the page printed, the back has to be blank.
Under Format>>Page using the Page tab you can set your margins as
needed. For example in the US the left margin is often 1.5 inches
with all the other margins set to 1 inch for a thesis.
I thought I cloud cheat by only using right page styles, because
Libre inserts a blank page when two even or odd page follow one
another. But these blank pages change my page count. It is true that
I actually have more pages than the written ones but it shouldn't
show in my page number.
You do not need to use right page styles.
I tried correcting the page number - but I can't figure out how.
With each new page the number of blank pages increases - so the
fifth page should have the page number 3 (3 written pages plus two
blank ones) while the ninth page should have the page number 5 (5
written pages plus 4 blanks).
Is there an easier way to accomplish my goal? Or does anybody have
an idea how I can correct my page number/count?
Any hints would be appreciated! Thank you for your time!
