Can’t Delete Last Page of a Document
Do you have some magic formula that will allow me to delete a page that refuses to delete? It is one page at the end of a chapter.
The clue to this puzzle is likely the second sentence: it’s a page at the end of a document. There are two possibilities that I can think of:
Book Page Numbering
If this document is part of a book, and the book panel is open, then my guess is that the Insert Blank Page option is turned on in the Book Page Numbering Options dialog box. (You can find this inside the book panel flyout menu.)
This feature is cool — it automatically adds a blank page, no master page applied, to the last page of a document when your document ends on an odd-numbered right-hand page. And it only does it when you have Continue on Next Odd Page page selected. (Of course, if you have continue on next even page, then it will add a blank right-hand page.)
But of course, if you’re not expecting this, it’s crazy-making! Every time you try to delete a page, it immediately pops back.
Smart Text Reflow
If you have a long text flow, and you have Smart Text Reflow enabled in the Type pane of the Preferences dialog box, InDesign may also add pages to your document. You might even just have a couple extra blank paragraphs at the end of a story and InDesign will keep trying to flow them into a new text frame on a new page.
