There are various preset pages in Lightroom Books. Some preset page layouts have zero padding, or border, and you are able to modify it via the Cell Padding controls. Other preset page layouts have a minimum padding, or border, that you are unable to eliminate for a full bleed and are unable to determine the preset cell padding point width.

Problem: I am unable to match the cell padding of some preset pages with other preset pages.

I chatted with Adobe support and confirmed that it is not possible to match the cell padding/border thickness with many of their templates. If you want to create a professional looking consistent book with matching photo border thicknesses, it is not possible. Customisation is not possible with their templates. A big disappointment to those wanting a professional and consistent look to their books.

As a starting point for Adobe, they should look at Apple Aperture, which had excellent and consistent book templates. I would not recommend the Lightroom book module to professional photographers until this is fixed.
