This setting overrides the control's URL property that you set in the document.
Export automatically inserted blank pages
If switched on, automatically inserted blank pages are being exported to pdf file. This is best if you are printing the pdf file double-sided. Example: In a book a chapter paragraph style is set to always start with an odd numbered page. The previous chapter ends on an odd page. Lotus Symphony inserts an even numbered blank page. This option controls whether to export that even numbered page or not.
