I'm using xelatex org-latex-to-pdf-process to convert org-mode to PDF.

I wanted a page break after the Table of Contents so I modified my
org-export-latex-classes and added:

\\makeatletter
\\g@addto@macro\\@cfttocfinish{\\clearpage}
\\makeatother

But now I have lots of extra whitespace on the page after the Table of
Contents, before the first text appears.

Has anyone run into this before?

Thanks,
Peter

Hi!

Have you tried using \newpage instead of \clearpage?

When I want a page break after the TOC, I'll usually just drop a \newpage in just before the first heading like this:

    #+ORG_EXPORT_SETTINGS...
    \newpage
    * First Heading
    ** A Subhead

This seems to work satisfactorily. My understanding is that \newpage is what you use for regular pagebreaks, while \clearpage is for ending a chapter because it flushes out floating elements. This discussion on tex.stackexchange.com /may/ be helpful:

    http://tex.stackexchange.com/questions/45609/is-it-wrong-to-use-clearpage-instead-of-newpage

Hope this helps!
