adding Bb book to classic real book

Post by Stevetrmpt » Sat Dec 29, 2018 6:30 pm

I have the real books Vol 1,2,and 3 in C and in Bb. When I loaded them into igigbook only the C book shows. There is no index for th Bb book (which I understand is a new "feature"), but I don't even see a Bb option when I push the transpose button on a tune, only the C option shows. What should I do to get the Bb part to come up?

When I added crealbk1_bb.pdf to my ipad, it did not show up in igigbook What am I doing wrong? It does show up in the general book list for the ipad. I then loaded it through the Ipad app and it showed in unindexed in my scores view...I cannot get it to show in the classicreal book view.....in other words, I still get the C version of the tune (eg: All the things you are), but there is no Bb option with the transpose button, just the C version.......

When you select the key icon it should display a list of keys you can transpose to. Your Bb version should trigger the system to show the Bb option as enabled if you named the fie correctly.

I have successfully added it (as well as Vol 2 and 3), but he pages don't match. Is there an easy way to adjust the offset on the Bb book to match the C book instead of doing it manually each time? Thanks for all your help!

From the link above
You can use this feature if:
  1. The index of the books are the same; the songs have the same page number in each book.
  2. The offset of the books are the same; the number of pages before the first song are the same in each book.
The books should be identical but just in a different key from the first song to the last. The books should have the same number of pages prior to the first song. When you have satisfied those two requirements, the feature will work correctly.
