I have been trying to use the LR 5.6 book module (occasionally used the 5.5 and earlier ones too), but it is acting crazy and I can't figure out what is going on. I used it some yesterday morning and it seemed to be okay, but when I opened the book today something terrible has happened. I hit the Clear Layout button and then hit Auto Layout button again, but it is still messed up. I got out of LR and restarted it, but the same thing. The photos are about 3800 pixels on the long side. Here are some screenshots. The photo layout, size of photos, etc. are all messed up and the really crazy thing is that some of the photos have text that I didn't put there. I haven't yet put any text in. The text is in a language that I am not even familiar with.
No one else has seen this sort of weirdness in the book module?
I'm sure somebody does. But I don't use the book module to create my books. I use another book publishing company, and I their software because it makes more sense to me.
Well, it seems like no one has any ideas.
The good news is that sometimes I can get it to seemingly work -- meaning that in LR the screen looks okay, but not always. Makes me concerned about ordering a Blurb book though because I don't know if what I get will be totally screwed up.
