Add pages to the book
If the structure of the Mz3 book needs to be changed and additional pages added, this menu item provides a quick and convenient solution.
Since now also PDF pages are treated as page images, you can also books that were created from one or more PDF files, easily expand in this way.
The reference page for inserting new, blank pages is always the page currently open in the book.
You can insert new pages before or after the current page, but never before the first page or the last page.
Switching before / after is done via the button which shows the current setting (“Insert After” or “Insert Before”).
Each book, whether single page book or double page book, always has at least one first page (or book cover) and one last page (back cover).
If several pages are to be inserted, one can enter the value for the number of pages.
Double pages must not be separated, as elements are often above the middle of the book and the logical unit is an (open) double page.
If you delete an odd number of pages in a single page book (which is allowed but not recommended!), An empty last page is inserted because a book always has an integer number of pages.
This is true even with “real” books: Only one “sheet” consisting of two pages (front and back) can be removed.
After the call, the number of pages is set to “2”, which applies to most use cases.
Another reference / home page can be made by turning the book. The currently open, active page is taken over immediately as the start page.
After inserting the blank pages, the number of pages in the book will be increased accordingly.
