Stuck in Step 4 of Real Book 6th Edition

I'm in step 4 (Use the Set List Sharing feature to generate a single PDF. DO NOT SEND THE EMAIL) and in Set List Manager (screenshot attached). I am not certain what I am supposed to do at this point. I tried Copy Results and got a pop-up asking me if I really wanted to create what looked like a reasonable file name (I think that it was Set_Real_Book_6th_Ed_CD.pdf) but then when I went into iTunes I can find no such PDF.

I hope that the screenshot is legible, I had to shrink it by quite a bit before the size was accepted by the attach dialog.

Thanks, Bob

The thing about following these steps is that you also need to look at the prerequisites for completing the task which are outlined before the steps are listed. These prerequisites are things that you need to know and be familiar with prior to going through the steps. Step 4 requires familiarity with the Set List Sharing feature. This is the link that is included in the How To:


This link contains various screen shots so that you can match what you see on your device and describes in detail what the process does. If a step requires additional knowledge and step 9 will, a link to that topic is included for you to review.

Phil, I'm sorry but I just don't understand. Am I in the right dialog and don't know how to use it? Or did I take a wrong turn and I'm not in the right dialog at all. I am in something called "Set List Manager". Not "Set List Sharing" and not "Gig Set Viewer". The dialog I am in does not have any icons in the upper left corner but instead has a "My Scores" slide switch. Without the icons in the upper left corner I see no way to get that dialog called "Share Set List" which seems critical to getting the PDF generated.

The dialog I'm in has four buttons labeled Copy Set, Copy Results, Add Song, and Add Results. But those buttons do not appear in the screen shots in the documents your instructions reference. "Copy Results" does result in a dialog named "Create Set List From esults", which sounds promising, but the "Create" choice does not result in a new PDF file according to iTunes.

I appreciate that this is frustrating for you but it's frustrating for me too. Please ...

You are not in a dialog. You are in the the last tab of the app, the Set List Manager. Looking at the screen shot that you provided, the app has 6 tabs on the bottom and they are labeled as follows:

1. Book List
2. My Scores
3. Song Search
4. Find Composers
5. Gig Set Viewer - This is where you need to be.
6. Set List Manager - This is where you are.
