Lightroom classic saving photobook

How do you save your photobook layout in Lightroom Classic?

 

What I'm worried about is if someone else clears the photobook layout that I have spent days organising and I can't undo it because they close the window afterwards.

 

Thank you

To add to Randy's answer-

When you click the tab to [Create a Saved Book] you get a "Saved Book Collection" in the Collection panel.

Everytime you return to a book design it should always be 'opened' from this special Collection.

This Book Collection is always a 'work in progress', so if "someone else" modifies this Book from the Collection it has changed.

The only way to preserve a Book design (as you want it) might be to make a 'duplicate' of the Book Collection and tell "someone else" not to open your version of the book.

I wonder whether books are saved on the LrC catalog, so retoring a previous backup would also restore the book at that time. Anyone can confirm? Thanks

Yes. Correct.

And a process to restore a specific Book Collection only-

1) Open the Backup Catalog (one that does have the Book Collection!)

2) Highlight/Select the 'Saved Book Collection'

3) [Right-Click] and [Export this Collection as a Catalog]

4) Either 'Open' this temporary exported catalog, or merge it into an open Master Catalog with the command [Import from another Catalog].

RESTORE PARTIAL from backup catalog?
