Lightroom: Book module error adding a new page to existing book

  • 1
  • Problem
  • Updated 1 year ago
In a book with 14 pages, I right-click on a page in multi-page view and select "Add Page".  The following pop-up error appears.  LR CC version 2015.12 release, Windows 10 Pro version 1703.  Today the behavior has changed.  Yesterday NO new page was created after I clicked OK on the pop-up error window.  Today it creates a new blank page, same as the "Add Blank Page" command.  I am using a custom page layout with one image and one photo text field that contains the image caption and the image's capture date and time.  After I create a new blank page I can apply my custom layout and it all appears to work properly.  If I right-click on the new page with the custom layout applied and select "Add Page", the same error message appears.

Tried to reproduce the issue, couldn't. I'll ask our QE to investigate.

Can you send some video for the same? I tried but could not reproduce it. With video it will be very meticulous for me.

Here is a link to a video captured by Snagit of the error message that appears when I add a new page to an existing book.  As shown in the last part of the video, I am using a custom page layout.

I don't understand your question.  I did share the video, it can be downloaded and viewed by anyone who has the link that I sent to you.  The steps are: right-click on an existing page in my book, then select Add Page from the drop-down menu.

I created a custom page layout (you can see in the video that I applied this custom layout, it is the only custom layout that I have) and applied it to all of the pages in the book.
