Indexed scores remain in My Scores as unindexed

Post by jchatlain » Sun Feb 26, 2017 10:20 pm

I'm new to iGigBooks and am lovin' it! All charts in one place! Uber cool!

I've pretty much got the download/rename/link thing working well. Most scores link fine but every once in a while a one will remain in My Scores after it has been linked to an index in the Book List. The index works fine but...
If I delete the entry in My Scores the index unlinks in the Book List. I hope I'm not asking "the same old thing" but I've been searching the forum for quite awhile now and am not finding anything. So, why does the file still appear in My Scores?
Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

If you change the name of a file to match that of the book code of the index you link the file to the index, if you delete that file, you no longer have a file linked to an index. Now that you know that, don't delete the file, refresh the My Scores view and it will no longer appear there as long as the index is present in the Book List view. You can also use the press and hold method outlined here:

Hi Paul,
Thanks for the quick response. I appreciate it very much.

I very well could be missing something here...

For the most part the process works as laid out in "Index Linking 101". After linking the file no longer appears in the My Scores view.

Every now and then a file "sticks" after the linking. From My Scores view, I rename the file (Current PDF Book Index List) and press/hold to "Link To Index". When I flip over to the My Books view the index works fine. I've tried refreshing the My Scores view (Yin/Yang arrows in upper left corner) but the file doesn't go away. Is there another way to refresh the view?

You said "...will no longer appear there as long as the index is present in the Book List view". I'm assuming the verification of an index's presents in the Book List view is that the contents are enabled and selecting a tune actually opens the chart. Is my assumption correct? Or is there another way to verify an index's presents in the Book List?

Thanks for your time in helping.
