This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Lightroom: LR4 Beta: Ability to create and save book template pages in the Print Module

Don't do any kludges with excursion to Adobe illustrator for custom book templates, but:

Empower the print module / custom package
* to put any text box there, which can be mapped to any metadata field.
Enable text formatting options like currently (LR4b#1) in the book module.

* Offer the functionality to create a mirrored template along the vertical axis to cater for left & right pages.

* Then enable, e.g. via right-click from the template browser panel in print module,
to export the print template as book template, either as single page or double-spread.

[Not part of this idea, but I consider it a well achieved feature if the other great ideas around the topic are implemented as well:
*about outer+inner borders (,
*opacity for cells (
*full text editor (]

Heck, make all the text formatting capabilities accessible in the Slideshow module too! It's incredible that one module has one capability, another has different capabilities (or none at all).
