When will we have European (or custom) paper sizes in the BOOK Module?  I am fully aware that Blurb only supports US paper sizes but there are many non-US printing services which will print a book from jpg or pdf files.  You should be able to support sizes other than those used by Blurb. The recent improvements in LR 7.5 were great but I think will only be usable by American users.  Come on Adobe you have MANY users who do not use US paper sizes!!!!!

Agree. Please, please, please make an option for custom page sizes in the book module. It makes so much sense, especially with the new custom layout options in the recent release. I'd like to print my own book pages, and would love to use the book layout options from with Lightroom.

If you really want to step it up - support putting multiple book pages on bigger sheets, so I can print book pages on big double sided sheets, and when cut out, the pages will be in right order and orientation. A common prepress need, but relevant for own book page printing as well.

I'm glad to hear it will be brought up for discussion. Custom book module page sizes has been a wish for years, and would be great if implemented. And as mentioned, you could even support imposition printing when printing multiple smaller page sizes on big sheets for later cutting - so the right images match each other on front and back side, including orientation.

It’s really good to hear that you’re discussing this subject and I hope that you will agree that there is an international need for this capability. I look forward to seeing a positive outcome and an implementation in due course. Regards.

It's been 6 months since I posted this and we are still waiting to hear if and when you might give us the ability to use non-US paper sizes in the book module.  With the recent changes you have made the book module it is becoming a very useful tool but when the only option is to use US paper sizes it remains unusable for us Europeans.

I think we should not dream as long as only Blurb will be their interlocutor, it offers no standardized format A, even on their European sites, it has in the baba ...
But why no major European producer does not contact Adobe to participate in the universalization of this module Book, beware, it takes a publisher working in all European countries .... Because of delivery charges and VAT that are true wounds of international deliveries!

I also can't understand why Adobe doesn't bring such easy improvements that so much users would use. I'm wondering what we pay for in the subscription since there are always just small minor changes. Really sad...

It's been 2 years since Reetesh Mukul replied to us that Adobe were discussing this but still nothing has happened and we still cannot use international paper sizes in LR's Book module.  WHY WHY WHY!!!!!

please add in the LightRoom LRC book module a way to freely custom the size of your books. Now you are forced to only use blurb sizes?

Please make custom page sizes an option in the book module. It is so frustrating that one is locked into the Blurb solution where I want to use other printing services but they cannot handle the standard pdf output sizes. Please, please please. This has been requested for such a long time...

For all Adobe customers outside the USA that can't use Blurb but still want to create a book, having standard paper sizes or even custom ones is a must. Please create this possibility in a future update to Lightroom Classic.
