Can you use images from different collections in print template?

I am using a custom lr template to create a collage of images in the print module - when I go to a different collection to get other images , the image that is already placed in the template disappears!

Is this correct? - Can I only use images from one collection?

I am using the latest LR CC - (monthly subscription) with a Mac

Yes, that is normal. If you go to another collection, and the first image is not in that collection, then it can't be kept selected. Put them in the Quick Collection first (or create a temporay collection), and then work from there.
