Indexes Disappearing

Hello guys,

I've created my own pdf gig book combining most of the available pdf books in one. Book has almost 3105 pages.
My first question is: Is there any page limits for iGig app to read all the pages? I'm trying to refresh, but it keeps showing 1374 pages in my book and showing till letter 'M', even though i bulk uploaded the song titles till letter "S".
I'm bulk uploading the song index for this book. All was running fine, till letter 'E', when my books song index suddenly disappeared. i can see that I bulk uploaded songs (when I open Song titles page, it tells me that I uploaded 70 pages of Song names), but it doesn't show any song name or info! - see attached pic.
Any help with that?
thanks in advance

The reason you're only seeing 1374 entries is because you've exhausted your number of syncs for a 24 hour period and you should be seeing a message to that effect.

I'm not so sure that combining a bunch of PDF files into one large PDF file is a good idea performance wise and I'm not sure what the goal of it is. Perhaps you can explain your reasoning?

Hi Phil,
thanks for reply

sure i know that it needs 24 hours, but this time it doesn't update the number of pages for few days already. that's why i wrote here, coz i thought there is a limit of pages in books.
I donno, the reason was to have one book, or max two of playable standards, instead of dozen pdf books with all these volumes. On top of that the indexes are not always correct, coz some of books have empty pages, some additional pages, some missed and you always have a wrong page opening at the end (even though i fixed most of these). There are so many tunes that no one did or will play. Some original tunes that only composers dig how to play, like tunes of Michael Gibbs, who i like very much, but i won't play those tunes. That's why i thought of doing a book of tunes that i do, or will play, you know. When all tunes will be next to each other alphabetically and I don't have to do song search and then open it in certain book. I'll search for example "Monk's Mood" and open it in my book and all other "Monk's Mood" versions will be next page.
This way i will have all under control and working. i might be wrong, but that's not the case :)

So, yes, i waited 24 hours and even restarted the iPad few times. Still 1374 pages on ipad instead of 1700 and "no data' message in the server, but saying i got 70 pages of song titles. weird...

You should be able to page through the entries of this index now using

I show this index as having 1600 entries currently.

Sorry for bothering Phil, but this error or no data thing repeated again, after me browsing through some pages.
What could be the problem?

This should be working fine now.
