Fixed Issues

The following issues have been fixed in Lightroom 4.2 release candidate:

  • Folder stacks with virtual copies get unstacked when moving to another folder.

  • Users may have occurred problems when trying to enter the Web Module from Library.
  • Unable to edit JPEG photos in Photoshop Elements.
  • Unable to upload files to Flickr if there is a carriage return in either the Title or Caption fields (Win only).
  • Background graphics that are applied to a Book globally may not appear as expected in a Saved PDF.
  • Certain book covers had spine text positioned in a Horizontal manner, not Vertical.
  • Double byte characters are not being exported to PDF in Books.
  • Photos were exported with original GPS coordinates recorded by the camera, not with the GPS coordinates updated in Lightroom.
  • Keyboard shortcuts in the Develop module sometimes do not work when editing an image in Process Version PV2010.
  • Parents and synonyms of “do not export” keywords also do not export.
  • Audio does not play in video files after creating a slideshow containing music (win7 only).
  • Tether support not working for Nikon D4, D800 , and D800E (win only).
