I'm using QGIS 3.6 Print Composer, and I managed to create a layout with two pages.

I now want to delete page 1. How do I move from page 2 to page 1 so I can delete it?

    When adding a page using 3.10, it appears directly below the first page.

  • Thanks Erik. I see what you mean - if I add a page before page 1 I can see it - and delete it. But looks as if I have an invisible page before my page 2 that I can't delete. Annoying... May 14, 2020 at 15:44

    Can you provide a screenshot? maybe you already deleted page 1?

  • Yes that was the problem. Yet it still printed out as a blank sheet when I sent the layout to PDF... May 17, 2020 at 14:43

I suggest you (again) create page 1, as a blank the same size as page 2.

Then for each element of you layout, go to the menu "position and size" and change the page the element is displayed from 2 to 1. The element should smoothly move from page 2 to the same position at page 1. Then you may delete page 2 and wont have a blank sheet in your PDF.

Yes, this is a bit tedious, but still better than recreating everything from scratch.

  • Good idea. Didn't think of that. May 19, 2020 at 8:51
