RE: Make page count even and add "Page intentionally left blank". .. automatically

Setting aside questions of aesthetics and so forth, here's an AppleScript 
that will do the job (at least on non-structured documents). Change the 
"paratype" variable to the paragraph type you want to use to display your 
notice (the script kicks it to the top of the page, which creates a new 

set paratype to "Body"

tell application "FrameMaker 7.0"
        tell document 1 -- "save" choked on active document for some 
                set oldPR to (page rounding)
                set page rounding to delete empty
                save -- if the last page is blank, this deletes it
                if ((count body pages) mod 2 is 1) then
                        set newP to (make new paragraph at end of text 
flow 1 
                                with properties {paragraph tag:paratype, 
start where:top of page})
                        set text of newP to "Page intentionally left 
blank, except for this sentence."
                end if
                set page rounding to oldPR
        end tell
end tell
