Strange thumbnail preview with The Book

Post by spinality » Tue Jan 23, 2018 3:12 am

When referring to The Book via the book list index or Song Search, all my links work correctly. However, when adding songs via the Set Manager, the song My Tani (p 483) and all subsequent pages have their thumbnail preview off by one page. At first I thought a page must be missing, but no. When I follow the link in the Set Viewer I go to the correct page. So it’s just the thumbnail that is confused. Do you already know about such an issue?

It’s obviously not a big problem since the set list works, but it was confusing to see the wrong preview.

The PDF you have is probably missing pages 205-206. The PDF I have is missing those pages and I get the same result in My Scores as you do.

"The Book" has some of the worst looking charts imaginable.

Agreed, it's not very good. But we use it for some oddball tunes. Mine is not missing 205-206, or rather it has blank pages there. Again, all the index links take me to the correct page, and Song Search works correctly throughout the book. It's just thumbnail previews off by one page starting on p. 483. But the Set List entries created using those thumbnails to go the correct page.

This seemed so odd that I thought I'd better mention it, in case you could a) recreate it and b) spot some underlying problem that needed to be fixed. Of course there are lots of PDF artifacts that cause strange display results so I'm guessing it's something like that. And there's no problem using the book, it's just weird to have some thumbnails off.
