In the Slideshow module, I select Add Text Overlay from the Slideshow menu. Underneath the photo, I select Edit to customize the text overlay. I add theese fields: Image # (01)-Filename-Image # (001)-Total # (001).

The Text Overlay is correct on screen, but when I export the Slideshow from the menu Slideshow, Export JPEG Slideshow, all fields show the same data - total numbers of photos in the slideshow.

In general, it appears that all slides get the values of the text overlay from the last slide, whether it's caption, title, filename, number of pics. See these additional reports:

It's a real pain in the posterior. I had done a lot of work to the upgraded catalogue, which you can't use in 5.7.1, am presently sorting out hundreds of photos taken at an agricultural show. So, I am working on my computer in version 6.1, exporting the photos as plain jpgs onto an online drive (I put the files on an online drive anyway, for the show organiser to access for the websites, etc), accessing them on my laptop and exporting the slides using ver 5.7.1, as you can't use both versions on one computer at the same time. I think ver 5.7.1 should be made available on cloud since they have so mucked up the current version. I am still receiving error messages when carrying out a plain export, saying it can't access cr2 files too. Rather disappointed with adobe!

Hi,

> I think ver 5.7.1 should be made available on cloud

You can download the installation executable from their FTP server:

ftp://ftp.adobe.com/pub/adobe/lightroom/win/5.x/Lightroom_5_LS11_win_5_7_1.exe

or

Precisely the same problem. Caption from last slide is on all slides see https://forums.adobe.com/message/7699... where I posted on this issue with more details.

I spent the whole of my Sunday from 8am until 1am in the morning (that is 17 hours on my weekend) adding meaningful captions to 688 photos to create a slideshow and the time has been completely wasted.

Please, please fix this bug quickly Adobe

Does this thread actually get monitored by Adobe staff? First time I have posted here (24 days ago) and nothing...no acknowledgment..no feedback from Adobe...

I worked around my issue last time by singly filtering to a single photo and exporting it to jpeg. This time I have 300+ photos to export, I'm not doing this one at a time.

I post my photos on a private share using the photo number as the order number for fund raising for my son's swimming club. This facility has always been the easiest way to get non-technical people to find the order number rather than them try and find the last 4 digits on a file name

Yea, annoying. Though, my current workaround is export as PDF (this works). Then convert PDF to individual JPGs. On the Mac, I use Automator (https://discussions.apple.com/thread/...).

Adobe says they read every post in this forum (which they treat as the official place to provide feedback), and over the years, it does seem that they do read much or most of the posts. But they don't reply to most posts.

Lightroom 6: When exporting JPGs from slideshow with sequence numbers exports all with the final number of however many photos you are exporting. If there are 10 photos, it will show 10/10 on all of the photos. Same if you choose file names. It will show the last file name on all the photos instead of the correct filename.

This problem is a royal pain. I use the caption field to annotate exported jpegs of travel photos. I share these with family and friends. It worked in release 5 and stopped working in CC (6). The obvious work around is to go back to R5, however does anyone have a way to work around it in CC?

I have had the same problem; I last used the JPEG slideshow export facility without this issue on 12 January 2015, and it has persisted with LightRoom CC updates since then. Hopefully that information will help Adobe Engineering team find the problem.

I have reset Export, Auto Layout and Text Templates without managing to cure the problem.

Many hours waste. My thanks to Arnold for reporting the bug.

Still no fix. This pretty much kills the functionality of the Slideshow tool. Can't be important then

LOL. I had an conversation with an Adobe employee who told me that this issue was going to be fixet with the next update, which was this?, i assume. But still nothing happened? So strange that Adobe even cant handle this tiny problem... So unsatisfied with their customerservice. Her is the copy of the transscript of the chat:

Hi,

experiencuing the same issue on Win-7 and Adobe Lightroom 6.1 (standalone non-cloud version). As mentioned this kills the functionality of the slideshow module. Please fix asap. Lr 6.0 is the worst and most buggy Lr version ever.

With LR CC I have found that when creating a JPEG slideshow with Caption and Title from the metatdata used as text overlays, the overlay only uses the last image information for all the slides. To say it another way, all the slides have the same text as the last slide. The overlay worked fine in LR5. I use JPEG slideshows quite a lot, so this bug is debilitating.
