  • The November 2019 Lightroom updates are now available. Lightroom Classic includes the ability to export the same photos as multiple sizes/formats in a single export, content aware fill for panorama edges and more. It does require a catalog format upgrade and there are updated system requirements, so you may want to wait a few days before upgrading.
    Lightroom (cloud-based service) has export options (such as TIFF format, renaming and color space), custom sort order on the desktop, copy/paste to multiple photos on iOS and more.
    The Missing FAQ and Edit Like a Pro eBooks are already updated for the changes.
  • Stop struggling with Lightroom! There's no need to spend hours hunting for the answers to your Lightroom 6 questions. All the information you need is in Adobe Lightroom 6 - The Missing FAQ!

    To help you get started, there's a series of easy tutorials to guide you through a simple workflow. As you grow in confidence, the book switches to a conversational FAQ format, so you can quickly find answers to advanced questions. When you upgrade to subscription, there's also a Lightroom Classic version available.

Can't See the scroll Bars

This problem occurs only in the book module. When I click 'Modify Page' a window pops up showing the possible layouts. On the right-hand edge of the window is a scroll bar - which on my system is invisible. If I'm lucky, I sometime hit the slider and can make a selection. Otherwise, I'm in the dark.

I tried changing the Windows color scheme - no effect inside LR. I know the slider is there because it shows up in Julieanne Kost's videos. So, what's her trick?

LR 6.4 on Windows 7.

As far as I know, you have to use the scroll wheel. It works for me on Windows 10.

This might be fixed by updating to Lightroom 6.5. There's a line in the "Other Bug Fixes" section of the Lightroom 6.5 release notes that says:
We’ve reinstated scroll bars so that you can browse faster in the Book module.

On Windows-10 (and previously 7,8)
I have never seen a scroll bar beside the page templates. I always have to use the scroll wheel.
And the cursor must be hovered above the visible page templates. (that tricks me occasionally)

I updated LR to 6.5. There is no visible change to the scroll bar that started this thread. HOWEVER, it seems easier to scroll and select a template using the mouse.

That's my experience.
