custom made indexes.

Post by jloduca » Sun Mar 10, 2013 9:27 pm

Hello Igigbook people..
Hey I am new to this app but very quickly fell in love with it.. Got many PDF's of jazz realbook stuff. I particularly love the indexing where I can select a song title and go immediately to it at that page of whatever book its at.. That is exactly what I am trying to set up with a custom PDF file of some original tunes. I created 1 relatively long pdf file that starts out with simple text that is my index and the page number..
example:

title page
song #1 3
song #2 4
song #3 5
etc. etc.

and starting on page 3 is the music of that song and all the remain manuscript follows that.. What I don't understand is how (or is it possible) to index these exactly how your real book stuff does? I cant imagine this app can simply read my index, that would be a miracle and a half to say the least.. Is there some sort of import function too on indexing? I am looking for easy ways to modify page numbers if I place a song in alphabetical order somewhere in the middle of the PDF file where page numbers update. Is all this possible and can you clue me into how to do it all?

Thanks so much!

One other thing I forgot to mention, the PDF's are on my ipad successfully and show up in the "my scores" section of this app.

There's a topic in the How To called "How To Create Your Own Book Index For Your Custom Book" here:
