When I generate a PDF from a Drawing using Inkscape 0.92.1 on Ubuntu, it creates a multiple page document which is barely not displayed then in a LaTeX document.

How could I prevent Inkscape to make multiple pages PDF?

Here's the pages layout on the PDF document viewer on Ubuntu (Evince) just to clearly see the problem:

  • Did you forget to post an example image? or example of the PDF?

  • I can't replicate the problem. When I export a PDF from Inkscape, I get a single page document.

  • What are your page settings for the document? Does your drawing fit on one page in Inkscape? Commented Jul 11, 2017 at 13:19
  • Maybe you should add the key element to this question: you export to pdf while selecting omit text in PDF and create LaTeX file. And to prevent layers, move all text to the foreground prior exporting, see tex.stackexchange.com/a/350175/36296

The problem with the additional page has been fixed, see https://bugs.launchpad.net/inkscape/+bug/1417470/comments/45

This will still create multiple layers, which is intended behaviour. If you don't like it, a workaround is to move all text to the top layer, see https://tex.stackexchange.com/a/350175/36296
