LIGHTROOM Book Module Guttering/Spread Output Changes Urgently Needed

Please please please add three small but vital abilities in the book module.

Firstly, the ability to output spreads rather than individual pages, my printer requires the spreads of me so I must combine the pages in Photoshop after import. This is time-consuming and seems unnecessary.

Secondly, it would help immensely if I could output a single spread or page rather than needing to output the entire book each time I make a tweak.

Thirdly, please allow me to remove the automated guttering. When I output a page that appears square on screen it actually is output a shade narrower than square. For a 12" album at 300DPI, my individual page jpgs are 3562x3600px rather than 3600px square. This is a major pain when combining pages into spreads in the process mentioned earlier.

Most wedding albums do not require a gutter as they open flat. I would be amazed if other wedding photographers would not also appreciate these suggested features.

Many thanks,

good ideas. I'd also like the ability to select multiple pages and roll them in to one (say a page with 2 images and a page with 1 image becomes a single page with 3 images)
