Let us explain:

There is not generally a need to start a new line, but it should be understood that [sdN] does not itself imply a page break when in the middle of a page. This is why [top] is often helpful before [sdN].

To ensure an even numbered page use the parameter zero: [sd0], and for odd numbered page use the parameter one: [sd1].
