Post by jazaddict » Thu Feb 12, 2015 9:58 pm

or do I have to use the interface?
can't I make a delimited text file for import?

If you have less than 50 items, you need to use the interface. If you have more than 50 items you can use the Bulk Upload feature described here:

http://www.igigbook.com/advancedtips.aspx

To make best use of the Bulk Upload feature, carefully proof read your data, upload your items and then make any corrections i.e. pages numbers, number of pages, title adjustments using my.igigbook.com.

Also check out the How To topic on How To Adjust An Index To Fit Your PDF.

Often times users will download a PDF from the internet and not check the integrity of the PDF which could have pages added, removed or changed around.

Is there an index made for RB2_1st and RB3_1st?

EDIT: I made the RB2_1st and RB3_1st bulk upload files WITHOUT composers (I put tilde's in quotes for composer "~") cuz I REALLY just need the titles. You're welcome to those files too if ya want.

This data already exists we have over 70 indexes which includes what you uploaded. You could have used the stock indexes that we provided. Were those indexes not working for you?

The Realbook1 that YOU have is 6th. I have 5th.
The Realbook vol2 that YOU have is 2nd edition, I have 1st.....so no, the names were all messed up & not aligned.
The Realbook vol3 that YOU have is 2nd edition, I have 1st.....so see last line ;)

...Unless I missed the earlier editions....

That said, the Colorado, Jazz Limited, Jazz Fake, and one or 2 others worked famously.

Considering that at 3:30 in the morning I got lazy on RB2 and RB3 & just put "~" for the composer (so it works to search titles only which is fine for me), I'd be happy to pull FULL indexes WITH the composers if you have em....

I have a gig tonight & wanted to get better access to the tablet pdfs.....so now I have that.
