I use G Suite at work. I want a stand-alone PDF version of the Docs document I am editing. When I export a 4-page document, I end up with a 6-page PDF. The 5th and 6th pages are blank. Why? Anyone have a workaround?
In the Google Doc help forum, there are a few answers suggesting to change the view to "print layout". Changing the view to "print layout" fixed the issue for me.
Perfect solution: Go to Print Preview -> Advanced Settings -> Margins, then make sure they are either default or none. The custom or minimum setting will cause a blank page to be inserted between every used page.
Credit goes to Sean Shrubsole for this brilliant answer at https://productforums.google.com/forum/#!topic/docs/ANASFcb3_UE: "I was experiencing the same issue ... i changed teh Print Margins from Minimal to Default and teh blank pages were removed." I just wanted to pass the information along.
