I am using Lightroom 4.3. I am using it on a PC. In the past, I have used Blurb booksmart to make a photobook. However, since Lightroom 4 offered it, I decided to make a photobook within Lightroom. Before starting, I put my photos in a Collection set which contained multiple collections in order of the what I wished to appear in the photobook. I started populating the photobook from the collection set. As I was finishing for the day, I did not know whether it should be saved or not. So I saved it under "create saved book". It saved it as a book. By the way, I did not know where to save the photobook so I saved it within the collection set.
I then went back to the collection set and suddenly something was happening. Afterward, I noted that the auto layout was putting this collection into a photobook, plus all the other collections within the collection set. I do not now seem to be able to undo it. Also every collection is locked into a separate photobook - though an unsaved version. I now do not seem able to access the photos in the collection set.
After saving my original photobook which was not complete, I had wanted to go into the rest of the collection folders within the collection set and continue to populate the photobook with the photos. However, I do not seem to be able to finish the original photobook as after the auto layyout, each of the collections are now in the initial stages of being a photobook themselves.
Can anyone help me please.
