I've spent quite some time working in Lightroom Classic Books.  I seem to always have to go through all the images individually to set things like padding, photo text offset, and others.  I see that you can set a custom "type" (size, opacity), to apply during auto layout.  But it seems very few things can be either set before importing or applied globally after importing.  Am I missing something?  Thanks for any advice!  -Randal Hundley

Also -Custom Pages cannot be named - so choosing them is a 'visual' trial in the Page template selector.

2) Design your Auto Layouts in the Auto Layout Preset Editor, and Save. You can use your Custom Pages.

3) Text is more of a problem, but the font and size can be set Globally by first selecting 'all'   EDIT: Select all text cells, after you have created the book by Auto-layout.
