Lightroom Book module zoom stuck on centerline

I'm excited about the August Lightroom updates relative to the Book module; however, there appears to be a bug in the zoom functionality - at least for me. I'm told it works correctly for others.

I'm very familiar with using the Preview panel in the upper left hand Navigator area (I use it regularly in the Develop module). However, in Book module when I zoom in it is stuck centered on the page. I can move it up/down, but it stays centered horizontally regardless of whether I select 1:1 or 4:1 zoom.

I asked about this in the comments on the Adobe blog re: this release, and Rikk recommended I reset my Lightroom preference file (by hold down [Alt/Opt]+[Shift] while restarting Lightroom). I did that and the behavior persists.

I am using Windows 10 and have done several reboots since noting the behavior. Am on Classic CC 7.5 Release.

Any help out there? Am I the only one? It's hard to move/resize the cells with precision when stuck at full page zoom (or full book width for two-page layouts). Thanks1

Hi, This is pretty much the same behaviour I tried to describe here.

3 years ago Jeffrey Tranberry, Sr. Product Manager, Digital Imaging,  logged a bug with the engineering team. Since then nothing happened.

3 weeks ago Rikk has asked for an updated. No feedback so far.

You better don't hope it will be fixed soon. Probably too few people using the book module :-(

I sound frustrated? Yes, I am! And disappointed, too as I'm paying a fair amount of money each month...
