    Book module: maintaining image order

    Just a follow-up on my earlier mail. I have now figured out at least two other, much easier, ways to preserve the custom order in a folder and use this order for a book, thus avoiding having to custom sort things twice (once in the original folder and once again in the collection used as a basis...

    Book module: maintaining image order

    I agree. That used to be my standard routine as well. The problem is that I then have to also rearrange everything in the original folder (which I would like to have the same order as the book) because sort orders cannot be transferred easily. Since sorting takes a lot of time (when I do several...

    Book module: maintaining image order

    This is an old problem but extremely frustrating in that it creates a vast amount of unneccessary work for us that could easily have been avoided. I have a folder in which I have carefully ordered all the images in the order in which I would also like to use them in the photo book. When I click...

    Export Book to PDF option missing

    Sorry, I should have read your response more carefully.

    Export Book to PDF option missing

    I contacted Adobe support and guess what ... the "Export to PDF..." option has moved to the right bottom corner, where it normally says "Send Book to Blurb".

    Export Book to PDF option missing

    Yes, the option you showed is missing. If I go back to any of the earlier books I made with the "Blurb" setting it returns. And yes, I have set it from the Book Settings panel.

    Export Book to PDF option missing

    Previously I always chose the Blurb option when creating photo albums even though I stopped printing them years ago. This time I thought it would make more sense to choose the PDF output option in the book module. Now that the book is finished I suddenly discovered that the "Export Book to PDF"...

    Book module PDFs: corrupted text after merging

    I have run into a serious issue with the pdfs created by the Book module. I do not think the problem lies with Adobe though, but cannot be certain. Since it concerns those of us who use the PDF export function of the book module I would still like to describe what happens here. I am also...

    Book module woes

    It just happened again in a new book I started and this time I may have a suggestion when it happens. Just like the last time I had started a new book and then discovered it was set to Landscape when I wanted the Square format. I changed the format added some pages, came back to it later and...

    Workflow with virtual copies problem

    Yes, that sounds like a good idea. I'll give that a try and see whether it works for me. As to the VC dynamically updating, I was not trying to suggest this is part of their functionality in LR, I was just hoping there might be a routine in LR that would generate new VCs when the original image...

    Workflow with virtual copies problem

    Johan, as I learn more techniques and gain greater (one hopes) photographic insight into what makes an image successful or not, so I want to tinker more with what I consider my best pictures. Some will be added, others will loose this status altogether and many others will be tinkered with as I...

    Carriage returns in Book module

    Although the book module has been slightly improved with the ability to add cells wherever one wants on the page, text support is still miserable. One problem I have been struggling with since early LR versions is the use of formatted text with carriage returns to use in either Photo Text or...

    Workflow with virtual copies problem

    Ok, I had not realised that VCs had to be in the same collection. Now it does work as expected and I can publish them to a folder that is synced to all my computers. Thank you both for introducing me to the basics of smart collections and publishing. I do have a few follow up questions though...

    Workflow with virtual copies problem

    Thanks Johan, not complicated but the results are still not what I would expect (see screenshots). As suggested earlier I made the smart folder part of the Hard Drive Publish Service but I only get 20 hits and not all of those are in Portfolio collection set. . By the way, I did Google this...

    Workflow with virtual copies problem

    Ok, but "Animals", "Architecture & design", etc are collections, aren't they? When I specify those the smartfolder suddenly contains 11288 links when I set Match to "any". When I set Match to "all" I get zero entries. Neither of these are what I would expect. As to giving them all a unique...

    Workflow with virtual copies problem

    That is very helpful, but I still can't get it to work. The Published Smart Folder remains empty. Could it be because the Favourites collection itself consists only of further collections. See screenshot (Favourites is actually the Portfolio collection)?

    Workflow with virtual copies problem

    Favourites is a collection (see above).

    Workflow with virtual copies problem

    Thanks Jim and Johan. So I tried setting up a smart collection within the "Favourites" collection and I added a rule copy name isn't empty. But I must have done something wrong because instead of giving me the 500 something images of Favourites there are only 79 and they do not all come from the...

    Book module woes

    I could not solve this problem, so what I eventually ended up doing was delete the book and the other books I had created based on the same folder. Quit LR and restart and start a new book. This book has so far behaved as expected.

    Workflow with virtual copies problem

    Hi, I am trying to figure out how I can best set up a workflow so I can easily/automatically generate a collection of jpgs of my best pictures for use in a screensaver. The use as screensavers means that I must be able to edit these images so as to make them conform to the 16:9 ratio and I do...

    Book module woes

    Hi, I am an experienced book module user, having made dozens and dozens of books over the years, but after my recent switch to Classic a few months ago, nothing works when I am trying to create a new book. In fact it is so bad I do not even know where to start describing it. I started as usual...

    Will Classic 7.5 and 8 work together?

    Thanks Jim, that is good news. I basically need both systems to be able to read the catalogues, and only for import/export purposes (taking laptop with me on trips).

    Will Classic 7.5 and 8 work together?

    Yes, the update option is not offered, in stead I get a message saying "Update OS".
