Is there a "Start new chapters on odd pages" option for Word output in RoboHelp 2020? I would like to turn this off like I could in RoboHelp 2019 Classic to get rid of extra blank pages in my Word docs and the resulting PDFs.

Next page is the only option as you have probably seen. It's not an option in Word either.

 

It is an option in the PDF preset but I'm guessing you want to tidy up the document in Word before going to PDF.

Yes, you are right. I clean up the document in Word before going to PDF. I ended up finding a way to take care of this by selecting the whole document in Word and then going into Page Setup and choosing Section start: New page in the Layout tab. This fixes the section breaks in the whole Word document. I built this into my doc prep macro so it should be easy from now on.

Thanks for your answer.

I had looked at style options in Word and forgotten the section break option. Glad you thought of it.
