Classic Real Book Bb - Index missing?

Post by msellman » Thu Oct 27, 2016 1:56 pm

The Classic Real Book Bb indexes appear to have gone missing. They used to be crealbk1bb, crealbk2bb, and crealbk3bb. I saw the tutorial on how to use the same index for the same book in different keys, but I want to have them indexed separately, because the offset on my books are different. This used to work. Not sure when it went away, but during my last gig I could no longer find any of my Bb charts.

Seperate indexes are no longer available. You can use a free PDF editor or Preview on the Mac to add blank pages so that the PDF files have the same offset.

Thanks. Do you also plan to do this with "The New Real Book" volumes? Right now I have them indexed separately. It would be nice to either have consistency with all the books, or give the option to index either way. If I were to rename my Bb New Real Book from the indexed nrealbk1bb to nrealbk1_bb, would it work on one index like the classic Real Books?

Also, when you search for a song, the old way let you know all the books that song is in including C and Bb books. Now, it just shows the "C" book that it is in, and you have to remember that you also have the Bb, Eb or whatever book also loaded. It would be nice when you search a song, if it is in a book that you have C and Bb books for, It indicated the keys available.

No, The New Real Book in C is different from The New Real Book in Bb or Eb.
