Re: New iOS 12 glitch on large iPad Pro

I have the same problem on a regular sized iPad Air. I scanned the Standards Real book, combined the page files into one PDF, uploaded and set the offset. Most of the songs in the book run to two pages, but I only see a repeat of the first page of the song. It does, actually, make iGigBook (temporar...

Re: Sher "The Digital Standards Songbook!" Index?

Can anybody tell me the page-offset number for this? I got it loaded just fine and have the index turned on in my account, but I can't figure out what number to enter for the offset.

Re: I need scanning guidance

The index that iGigBook uses to fetch the correct chart is based on the index in the actual physical book that you have. If you put the book together wrong, meaning leave out pages, rearrange them, the index will not work with the PDF. Page 10 to page 462 is the order it needs to be in or in the or...

I need scanning guidance

After a frustrating first day, I think I am very slowly figuring out some of the ins and outs of iGigBook. I have a specific set of questions regarding scanning. I decided to scan each page of my hard-copy Hal Leonard Real Book vol. 1 (6th edition). I scanned at black and white, at 300 dpi. (I reali...

Re: Can't get started--can't find my Real Book

I did both of those things without any visible results. It finally worked for me when I completely restarted my iPad. All of a sudden the new book (New Real Book Digital Edition) appeared, with songs populated, in my Book List. I was then able to access songs. This happened despite the fact that I c...

Re: Can't get started--can't find my Real Book

All right, I decided to start again. I purchased what I know is a PDF file of The New Real Book Vol 1 from Sher Music. I downloaded it to my laptop. I followed your instructions for going into iTunes with my iPad connected, scrolling down to the File Sharing section, adding the file to iGigBook. Onc...

Re: Can't get started--can't find my Real Book

You didn't purchase a PDF file that rarely happens when you buy a title via the App Store or from the Kindle app, this isn't made clear to you by Apple or by Hal Leonard. It's not fair for us to take the hit for that. The money you wasted may very well be for the book you purchased via iBooks that ...

Re: Can't get started--can't find my Real Book

But none of this matters, since you're telling me the only way I can get this into your app is to find some scanned (pirated?) PDF of it out on the internet, not by legitimately purchasing it from the Apple app store. I truly feel as though I just wasted $15. I know, I know, it's my own responsibili...

Re: Can't get started--can't find my Real Book

Let me follow up on my last reply. I looked again at your tutorial, and you refer to "iTunes," presumably on my Macintosh laptop computer. Is the real takeaway that I have to hook up my iPad to a laptop, sync it, and ONLY THEN bring the PDF into iGigBook? Is there no way to do this operation on my i...

Re: Can't get started--can't find my Real Book

Oh my. No no. I know what the Hal Leonard volume 1 is called in your lists. I used the correct name when I looked for it. I have found it in the lists here on the forum and in the help files in the app. It does not show up, however, in the list in the Book List section of the app. That list only con...
