Lightroom: 4.3 does not save the latest changes I make in my book.

I am working on a 230+ pages book. Everything has beeb working perfect until last week. Suddenly my changes are not saved.

Just Updated today to the Lightroom 4.3 but LR still doesn't save the changes.

I have 3 copies of the book v.1, 2 and 3 with different layouts.
I have been working on the book for some days and everything has been saved perfectly until now.

When I for instance delete 3 pages or change the layout of some of the last pages and then go to another version (or another module) and back - the changes are not saved.

This means I cant finish the book because I can't save further changes. Everything is like it was some days ago. I have restarted, saved a new version of the book but for now I am stocked.

I hope someone maybe have a solution to this issue?

All the best,
Morten Hilmer

I have the same problem. It appeared in the 4.3 release. Before that everything was OK. This problem happens to one specific book. With other books I can work without any problems, also with books created before the 4.3 release.

Dear Morten Hilmer,

I'd like to know the detail operations that you make the book to help to reproduce your issue on my testing machine. Could you please provide me a screen video? You can use QuickTime Player on Mac or you can download a screen catcher named 'Jing' on Windows to record your operations as a video file. Please send the file to me (jingshu@adobe.com).

Thanks,
Jingshu

One day after my post above I got a mail from a quality engineer for Lightroom (very good service I must say). He asked if he could get my LR-database. I said yes and uploaded it to him. Some hours later I got a mail telling that he had managed to reproduce the error I reported. The actual file is now handed over to the development engineers for LR. Hopefully we have an update to LR soon with a fixed book module.
