Song and pdf not linking

Post by WaltMayhew » Wed Aug 30, 2017 5:24 pm

I loaded a pdf and the song to link to it is in the music library, but it doesn't link. When I press the button it says no matching track found. Both have the same name. Is there a way to manually link them or tell me what to look at to have them link.

What's probably happening here is that you haven't enabled access to the music library by iGigBook and therefore it cannot find any results.

Thanks for your reply.

But, that's not it. It found songs before and after. I'm not sure when the association between the .pdf file and a song takes place and if necessary what action(s) initiate it or if there is a required sequence such as putting the song in first or vice-a-versa.

I reloaded the .pdf file the next day and it linked up. Documentation that is available isn't as intuitive as I'd like, but the more I play with it, the more I can figure it out. Love the software when it works seamlessly. Very nice product offers features not available by the competition.

The association is based on the name of the song in your music library and the title of the song in your set list. When you select the playback icon or you have "Auto Play Found Track" enabled, iGigBook searches your music library for a matching song title.
