Missing pages after exporting as PDF

My book is over 63 pages. When I export as PDF there are no error messages, but when I open the pdf random pages throughout the book are just white, the images or text is no longer there. :( What am I doing wrong? Thank you for any help! :)

I do not have an answer, but have read lots about book problems with fonts, missing images, and in this link the problem was image metadata-
Book Module - can't Export to PDF or Upload to Blurb

I suggest you examine the blank white pages carefully in the book module. Check the images on the page are all OK and can be edited in the Develop module. Change the text font to a common font like Myriad Pro. You can select all text cells from the Edit menu (or Ctrl+Alt+A) and set one font for the whole book- which may solve a problem, if it is 'fonts'.

Thank you so much for your reply. I saw in another thread you (I think it was you) had explained how to duplicate a book. So a few minutes ago I duplicated the book (didn't change a thing), and tried exporting the copy and it worked! Not sure why, but it did! I guess, when in doubt, duplicate! Perhaps it will help others in the future.

Ahhh... the foibles of Lightroomo_O

Recently, and briefly, only once, I tried to 'remove' a photo from a collection (by a right-click 'remove') - The only option I had was to Remove/delete from the catalog!! Not the usual menu result.
