Anyone have index to Real Book Vol V?

Anyone have index to Real Book Vol V?

Seems like this would be an obvious index available for igigbook but I can't find it anywhere.

Please help me find it or share it if you can.

So I tried to make a custom index for this book and got the following error:Error: Book Code realbk5h, already exists. Copy realbk5h.pdf to your device to access it.

Please help me to understand this error. It seems to me like this has already been indexed and I just need to copy the pdf to my ipad then go to Manage My Book Settings and make that title active. Am I right? If not then please help me to figure out how to get igigbook to read this pdf.

The book code exists even though the index does not which is why you can't create a custom index with that book code. Solution; try another book code.

Thanks Phil,

Looks like I get to make an index. Never made one this big before (400 songs) . Can you provide a link to a tutorial on an efficient way to make a large index like this? The pdf has a table of contents that is linked to each song. Any shortcuts to create an index to an indexed pdf like this?

Thanks

If the PDF has a table of contents, why bother with an index?

The whole reason I love and use I gig book is that it gives me one place where I can search all of my song titles then create a setlist to help me be organized on a gig. While I have the Real Book volume 5 now as a pdf with a table of contents it doesn't allow all of those titles to seamlessly work with the other titles I use in my I gig book collection.

So I'm wondering if my only choice is to manually create an index of this pdf or if there is some type of efficient shortcut.

The assumption you're making is incorrect. When you have bookmarks they show up in song title search results along with titles from indexed books.

Well that's awesome then. I'll import it and see how it works.

Thanks for a great app. I still can't believe that many of the people that I play with try to use other apps besides igigbook to gig with.

So if I am to understand correctly, once added iGigBook will recognize the existing bookmarks and show that this book has 400 titles? Something is not right as I imported the book but it only shows that there is one title. When try to open it from the Book List it only shows "Song 1 Real Book Vol V"

Anything I may have done wrong or something that I should do to try to fix this?

When I open this pdf in Acrobat reader all of the bookmarks are present and work correctly

Thanks

Try this...

Go to the song title search and search for "Zoot Suit Riot" which is a song in that book, you should see that book as one of the search results.

When you import the bookmarks, there is no need to create any entry using the Content Manager at my.igigbook.com.
