Issue/Introduction

After an AFP to PDF conversion, blank pages are missing from reports when Web Viewer displays them.  The original AFP report had blank pages. This defect was corrected with apar RO98702 and now the reports looks like the original.  Is there a way now to omit blank pages from the resulting PDF?

Cause

This was a defect that was corrected with apar RO98702 CSPOOL 14.0 ADD SUPPORT FOR OPENTEXT D2E VISION V16.3/JAVA TRANSFORMERS 

Environment

CA OM Web Viewer 12.1
CA Spool 14.0
Dispatch 11.7

Resolution

There is a setting to suppress or display blank pages.in the resulting PDF.

Uupdate the d2eproj file you are using to set this value in the PDF Generator parms section: 
suppressBlankDuplexPages="true" 

You are probably using either A2PD.deproj or A2PDL.d2eproj. This file is in the /apps directory used by the Java Transformer task. Here is a detailed example as to where to change it: 

<component name="PDF Generator" 
type="pdfgenerator"> 
<parms noTranslate="false" 
aSCIIEncoding="None" 
bookmarks="Closed" 
imageCacheSize="0" 
imageDpi="0" 
enableInlineImages="true" 
FontNaming="SOURCE" 
forceImagesInline="false" 
maxInlineImageSize="4" 
type3FontDpi="300" 
scaleBy="100" 
shadeMode="Map" 
defaultMappingColorCmd="0.85 0.85 0.85 rg" 
suppressDuplicateImages="false" 
suppressBlankDuplexPages="true"> <======
