    Book module Text Style Presets

    I obviously hadn't poked around enough as I have found that it is easy to delete a saved Text Style Preset. Simply use it and then open the drop down box again and at the bottom there is an option to delete the specific preset you just used. But still wondering if there is an easy to way to view...

    Book module Text Style Presets

    Is there a way to delete some of the saved Text Style Presets that I have saved over time (or even the ones that come with LR)? As I have learned what look I like for the text, I now have Text Style Presets that I never use and would like to get rid of them. As I work to clean up my text style...

    Catalogs Moving from two computers to one

    I was still experiencing this issue but revisited this thread. I decided to confirm that I have looked into this suggestion and while the sync folder was not in the root of C it was on the C drive. I moved the destination for the synced directory to drive D yesterday and the problem is now...

    Book module Resuming work on a book and LR is slow

    I reboot daily (as i turn my system off each night) and it didn't seem to be much better today. Reinstalling my OS isn't really an option. Maybe Windows is preparing an update in the background and everything will be better in a few days. I've never been able to figure out how to tell - other...

    Book module Resuming work on a book and LR is slow

    I've used LR for a number of years with the main "output" being albums that I print via Blurb using the Book Module. My books all end up being between 150-200 pages with 400-600 photos. I resumed working on a book today (154 pages) and LR just seems super slow with lags for everything - and all...

    Catalogs Moving from two computers to one

    I was thinking I should put both catalogs in the same folder to make backups easier and with names that made sense (work.lrcat and personal.lrcat). But that would need to be on the D drive as it is my large storage drive. The work catalog is currently in the default place LR put it upon...

    Catalogs Moving from two computers to one

    I just tried running LR with "run as administrator" selected and I do not get that error message. But I still don't like the idea of giving LR writes to the root of C drive....

    Catalogs Moving from two computers to one

    I have successfully moved my personal Lightroom data over to my work computer, but when I launch the personal catalog, I am getting an error message that says "Lightroom cannot write to the following directories. Until this problem is resolved, synching from Lightroom CC may not function...

    Book module Photo Borders in Book Module

    Thank you. I did discover that if you want to add a border to every single photo in the entire album you can do that by first switching to the mode where all the pages are shown and then Select All Photo Cells. Appreciate the quick advice that solved my question.

    Catalogs Moving from two computers to one

    I have been using two computers - one for work and one for personal stuff (both PCs). My personal computer is getting old and I've decided to move to just using one computer. I have LR Classic installed on both and have separate catalogs (a work one on the work computer and my personal one on...

    Book module Photo Borders in Book Module

    It has been a while since I used the Book Module and after updating Lightroom Classic today I was excited to see some features added to it that I've wanted to have for a long time. I quickly downloaded the update to the FAQ book on Lightroom Classic and read up on these new features to add cells...

    Classic vs CC

    Thanks! No book module in CC means that I stick with Classic. Appreciate the quick reply and advice.

    Classic vs CC

    I've been using Lightroom (now Classic) for many years now. I have not yet used Lightroom CC and I am trying to figure out if moving to CC is something I should do, or if I should just stick with Classic for now. I would be happy to read posts or pages from Victoria's books if anyone can point...

    Display issues with external monitors

    The same adjustment to the Properties dialog box has fixed Chrome, but it required a reboot for it to take effect. I'm so happy that the display issue is fixed!

    Display issues with external monitors

    I have found a resolution (for all of the Adobe issues) and wanted to share. I have spent hours with support from Nvidia, MSI (laptop manufacturer), and Adobe. All gave the same suggestions - change resolution on my built-in 4K monitor, try changing the text size (which didn't address the...

    Multiple licenses & 1 Adobe ID?

    Operating System: Windows 10 Exact Lightroom Version (Help menu > System Info): I need to use CC on 3 machines. I understand that one subscription to CC allows me to use it on 2 computers. That means I need to have 2 subscriptions to use CC on the 3 machines. Does anyone know if I can use ONE...

    Missing FAQ book provided answer as to why LR wouldn't open

    Just a quick note of thanks for the Missing FAQ book. Lightroom wasn't opening as it claimed that the catalog was open in another instance of LR (which wasn't true). Before posting to the forum I reviewed my copy of the Missing FAQ book and found the answer (delete the lr.cat.lock file that was...

    Filters & an African Safari

    John - thank you for the comments, especially about the usefulness of the polarizer and the fact that most sensors don't record much UV light anyway.

    Filters & an African Safari

    I am going on a trip to Africa later this month which will include a 4-day safari (super excited!). I looked into renting a super-zoom lens and have almost decided to purchase the Tamron 150-600 G2 lens as my work will provide me with similar opportunities in the future so buying makes more...

    Laptop Recommendations - PC

    I get to order a new computer for my work and I need it to be beefy enough to run Photoshop well. I also need it to be a laptop and a PC (not a Mac). I would love input on what brands, types, and minimum specifications I should be requesting so as to have a computer that will be powerful enough...

    Fixing catalog confusion due to mobile sync

    Jim, it is except that the pictures are already in the dated folder because I manually copied them there on my computer hard drive. (So they are on my hard drive twice -once from work that I did manually and once from the auto-sync process from Lightroom mobile). I think I need a better handle...
