Hi there,

It would be nice to have a single PDF file output from the "Export to PDF" in the Book module. This would result in the (currently separate) cover and content to be merged into one file.

I agree. The workaround for now is to ignore the front/back cover and use the 1st page of the body as the cover. When you export, you can then just throw away the cover pdf.

That will be a great feature. Currently, due to this missing feature, exporting the pdf to online publishing platform like '' is a pain. One has to alter the project after exporting the original for print/blurb, tweak it to move covers and pages, and then export to PDF.

actually it would be even better to just have an export to pdf button inside of lightroom in the book module.
i am on pc and have to go the third-party-pdf-printer-route and that leaves me with wrong colors.
