Lightroom Book Module Unlimited Pages for Editing

The Lightroom Book module is limited to the 240 pages maximum from Blurb. Suggestion is to allow unlimited pages to be created in LR to facilitate editing, but with a warning issued when the max is reached ("Note: Books can be a maximum 240 pages. You may continue editing but will not be able to export to Blurb." For every page passed the maximum the page number below the thumbnail could present with a red flag or such.

I find it is very helpful to layout the book and start moving pages around to both identify which images fit best together, and to also help cull those that don't belong. Removing the page limit for this purpose would be very helpful here.

The limitation seems to be an oversight of the developer that worked on the module. At Blurb the amount of pages permitted depend on the paper used. I suspect Adobe just didn't notice there is the option to print many more pages if you use Standard paper.

This is what Blurb support says:

"The limitation of 240 for Standard Paper was implemented by Adobe, though I'm not sure why. Our restrictions are 20-240 for Premium or above paper and 20-440 for Standard Paper (these are only applicable to Photo Books)."

Adobe please fix this! Thanks!

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled LIGHTROOM Book Module Enhancement.

I was completely surprised by the 240 page limit in the Lightroom book module. Can't you modify LR so that the LR book page limits line up with the Blurb book page limits. 240 Pages may seem like a lot to an artist, but when capturing an almost 4 week trip to dramatic New Zealand, it is not a lot.
