I have created a Large Landscape photo book in Lightroom 4.0. I have 160 pages. I have a layout with 6 photos on a page, 3 vertical and 2 horizontal, with the top-left photo wide, the top-right not as wide and so on. The page with this layout is page 6. I copied the layout of page 6 using right click and then pasted to page 7. For some reason the photos on the page 6 changed to be the same as on page 7 after restarting Lightroom. Is this the way it should work?! I thought copy layout just copied the layout, not created a link between the pages.

I noticed if the page styles are copies from another one you have problems, but if you start a fresh style for each page alot of the problems go way. The pages when you copy the styles seem to have indirect ties to each other and causes problems with pictures and captions showing up correctly. But starting fresh page layouts for each page it works fine. Also if you create a page and want the same page layout for the next page LR4 will automaticly choose that layout for the next page it will not cause the problems caused by copying page layouts.
