Lightroom 5.0 - Book Module
Cannot drag and drop pics from the filmstrip into the book
OS= Windows 8
This bug makes the book module in Lightroom virtually useless. I've tried everything that I can think of to work around it but in the end, this is a show stopper. What is the timeline to having a fix ? I'm now looking at other software solutions - is that my only answer to this. The book module seems to work fairly well, except for this.

If you're still on 5.0, you could try updating to 5.5 for a start.

Beyond that, do you have a suitable template in the page, into which you can drag the photo? What exactly happens when you try to drag photos at the moment?

Lightroom version: 5.5 [968504]
Operating system: Windows 8.1 Home Premium Edition
Version: 6.3 [9600]
Application architecture: x64
System architecture: x64

I select the photo on the filmstrip but beyond that, it doesn't MOVE when I try to drag it towards the book. I auto populated the book, and can drag and drop within the book itself - but not from the filmstrip.
