How to add pdfs for your index

I'm sure this info is available, but I can't find it.
I want to include The World's Greatest Fake Book. I own it legally and have loaded its index onto my iPad Air. I can scan the book's pages, but have no idea what to do next -- how to name them and get them to connect to the index, etc.

Indexes stubborn about deleting

I found that I had to repeatedly use this process to delete unused indexes that were cclogging my Book List and preventing display of desired indexes at the bottom. Please advise if I did something that prevented many from deleting the first and successive times through these steps. Begin with iGigB...

Re: Stopped in "How to Use CD ROMS with iGigBook"

Success at last! The step I forgot was that in order to download the index, I had to click the sync icon on the Book List page. The "Step by step for Real Book 6th Edition CD ROM" doesn't mention this critical step. Thank goodness for the screen shots provided in your help pages, though unfortunatel...

Re: Stopped in "How to Use CD ROMS with iGigBook"

No, "Real Book 6th Edition" is not on my Book List. My iGigBook includes the "realbk1h.pdf" file, renamed from "Set_Real_Book_6th_Ed_CD.pdf". The Set Viewer includes "Real_Book_6th_Ed_CD". I reloaded all the pdfs onto my iPad, so each opens when I click its title in the Set Viewer. My iGigBook also ...

Re: Stopped in "How to Use CD ROMS with iGigBook"

Still no luck. As soon as I take step 6: "Locate the file Set_Real_Book_6th_Ed_CD.pdf and rename it to realbk1h.pdf" this retitled file disappears from the contents of my iPad displayed in the iTunes window on my iMac. After I take step 7: "You can also delete the files copied during step 1 now" the...

Stopped in "How to Use CD ROMS with iGigBook"

I'm not seeing or recognizing the options described. I got this far: bought the Real Book 6 Vol1 CD, copied its pdfs from the CD in my iMac onto my iPad, have iGIGBook's Set List Manager window open. Never saw anything about email or deleting drafts. In the Set List Manager there's a side with My Se...

Re: indexes unavailable in Book List

Yes, OK now. I had to take steps additional to those explained in "How To Add Indexes To Your Book List View":

• In the row of the target book, click Edit under the Action column.
• In the resulting window, check the Active box and click Save.

Thanks again.

indexes unavailable in Book List

I've successfully uploaded onto my iPad Air two pdfs of correctly named books: thebook.pdf (The Book) and jfakebk.pdf (Jazz Fakebook(Ultimate). They appear in My Scores, but not in the Book List. Since they don't appear in the Book List, I can't go through the steps in your tutorial for getting the ...

Re: index for New Real Book 1 erratic

Thanks very much. I uploaded a different pdf of "The New Real Book Vol 1," discovered that it seemed to need an offset of 15, and it's working fine now.
