Summary 'glossaries' should honor 'openany' option

Sign in to subscribe to notifications about this report.


Lately, I wanted to add various glossaries to a LaTeX document that is two sided but uses the 'openany' option to save some empty pages. 'glossaries' ignores this option and always inserts empty pages such that each glossary will start on an uneven page. I'm not sure whether this is a bug or a feature, so I'll add this as a feature request.

After some research I found a thread from 2008 ( that discusses this problem and offers the following solution:

--- start code ---
--- start code ---
BTW: There's also some talk in said thread about contacting you about this problem. However, I could not find any entries in the feature requests or bugtracker so I decided to open one myself.


No mwe.tex


Okay, I'll get it fixed in the next version.

BTW: That's what the feature request and bug tracker are for :-) It makes it easier to fix problems. Thank you for your report.

Update: Fixed in v3.07.
