Can someone else me?  Whenever I go into the slideshow module, I get the error "failed to convert to native blog"  Any suggestions?

    is "blog" a typo on your part? Perhaps a little more information about your system would help find an answer.

    Perhaps it was BLOB: Binary large object (BLOB), in computer database  systems.

    Seems likely..in which case optimising the database may make the problem go away.

    I was having the same problem and fixed it by resetting my Identity Plate to the default settings. It is now a "Styled Text Identity Plate." Hope this helps

    Success!  I have been having this issue with the slideshow module for over a year.  The issue was that I had an old identity plate that was trying to use a font that I no longer have installed.  I opened the identity plate and updated it to use a font that I have currently.  Now I can finally use the slideshow module again!  Adobe - if you are listening - it would be nice to have a more descriptive error message when this happens, or to alert the user when lightroom starts that the font is now missing and will be replaced or similar.  Thanks all!
