New Real Book pages cut off at bottom

Post by jwintermyre » Thu Jan 12, 2017 11:42 pm

Hi, new iGigBook user here, great app! I have a question about zooming. I loaded up some of my classic Real Book and New Real Book PDF's and linked to the indices, and they work great. The only problem I'm having is that the pages for the New Real Book are slightly cut off at the bottom. I'm on an iPadPro 9.7", and IIRC the New Real Book pages use a different, larger physical form factor than the classic Real Book, and possibly different aspect ratio for the full page? Anyway, I'm viewing with the menu hidden, so the PDF view is taking up the whole screen. I can pinch to zoom out, and while I'm holding the pinch I can see the full bottom line, but as soon as I let go it zooms back in. I thought I could zoom out and then lock the zoom level there, but it seems like zoom only allows you to actually zoom in. If you zoom out past 100%, it draws the zoomed out view correctly while you are pinching, but as soon as you let go it goes back to 100%. Zooming IN on the other hand works as expected.

Am I missing something obvious?

Provide the name of tune in that book and describe what's missing at the bottom.

Zoom out isn't a feature provided though you can see the image zoom out it will never stay that way.

Sorry for the delayed response. I was out of town for a bit, and had some gigs so used the iPad for the first time instead of physical real books. For the charts in the New Real Book, I used a different PDF reader called PDF Expert. Pretty much all pages from this book are cut off a bit at the bottom in iGigBook, it just depends on the chart as to whether there's any relevant information at the bottom of the chart that is lost. Here's a random one that is cut off at the bottom in iGigBook, when zoomed out all the way:

Here's how the same chart looks in PDF Expert:

Like I said, if I pinch to zoom out further in iGigBook, I can see the cut off parts, but when I let go of the pinch gesture it zooms back in and gets cut off. But I think I accidentally stumbled on a workaround (and maybe this helps narrow down the issue). If I pinch to zoom out, and *while pinched* I then slide my fingers up to drag the image so that the top is at or above the very top of the screen, and *then* let go of the pinch, then when it zooms back in, the top of the image is at the very top of the screen, and I can see the part that was previously cut off at the bottom. In this case, the top of the image is now overlapping the status bar at the top of the screen (the part with the service bars, time, battery percentage etc). I see that in PDF Expert, when in full screen mode that status bar is hidden, so maybe that's the issue. Here's what that first image looks like if I do the workaround I just mentioned:

Thanks for the screen captures, this will be fixed in the next version.
