Hi! I’ve made my first book with the integrated book module in Lightroom in order to print it with Blurb. Started with LR 4.1, I've tried to solve upgrading to 4.2, but the problem remains.

In the visualization all works fine, i’ve added graphics as background in some pages and the orientation follows the page numbering correctly (for example, the side decoration appear on the left of even pages and on the right of the odd ones).
But when I export my book in PDF for a preview, all the backgrounds go crazy.
I’ve noticed that this happen after each double page, as if the program count them as single. After the first double page, decorations switch from left to right and viceversa, after the second double page all return ok, after the third it’s switched again, and so on.

In the screenshot you can see an example of the problem, taken after the first double page.

I've resolved transforming graphic background into images.. but it's not a real solution...
