I've done 3 books at the beta stage of LR 4 and and no problems to create the pdf for the books. I am on the final version now and the books I moved over to LR4 - I am doing quite a few different ones - have converted perfectly, but when trying to create the pdf for the first book a 55 page book, I found that the final pdf misses blocks of text (text, not page or picture captions) in some pages. Not all, some, at random. I don't know what is wrong, I've tried to lower the JPEG quality, the file resolution, but nothing seems to work. Does anyone have the same problem, and is there a solution for this?

I wanted to finish my ebooks but now Iam at a dead end and I don't want to go back to inDesign, as Iam having a lot of fun with LR4.

Any help would be appreciated

This issue has been fixed in Lightroom 4.1, now available via Check for Updates in the Lightroom help menu, or on

Note - fonts can be tricky, so we do recommend that you preview your book by exporting to PDF before sending to Blurb.
