I've never worked on products where no documents are delivered in printed form, so no. I have turned out doc sets where some docs were delivered printed and others electronically, and in the electronically delivered docs were formatted differently from the printed ones.

Hi, all.
Have any of you dispensed with having every chapter start on the recto
I've seen a few recent books that start recto or verso, whichever.
My thinking is, for every "Get rid of this blank page!!!" comment from
in-house reviewers, there's probably an equal number of users who are
also puzzled. Since we no longer ship printed books, and I doubt most
customers print our pdfs, people are mostly seeing them on line and are
probably wondering why those pages are blank.
Has anyone taken the plunge?
