Hello all 
I designed a book yesterday and saved it. Now I can open it but I couldn't edit it easily. 


The book was created from photo collections and as you know the saved one is located there.
At the moment, and after I open the saved book, whenever I click on any other photo collection it automatically create new book project out of that selected collection! I just click the collection to chose more photos (like I did before) but I couldn't! 
Any advise ?

Yes, while you are still using the Book Module (Book module is 'active')- selecting another Collection or Folder does make LrC believe you are starting another book!

Instead, You must-

1) 'exit' out of the Book module to the Grid View, by pressing [G]

2) Select any Folder or Collection of photos to show in Grid View

3) Select individual photos you want to ADD to the Book and drag them to the 'Saved Book Collection'.

4) Re-open the Saved Book Collection. Your 'added' photos will be at the right-end of the Filmstrip.

Thank you, 
I think that does the job for now. Although I wish to be able pick/drag photos from other collections directly to certain places (pages) in the existed book. (Like what I did in the begining before I saved the book).
