Hi,
That's difficult. Remember MANY "Original PDF" do not Match "Current" PDFs in name.
How DO I DELETE all <My Scores> pdf and then Start FRESH adding to the list again. Either in blocks of 5 or singlely.
PROCEDURE:
What I did was DELETE ALL <My Scores> PDF's from I:\XP 2 Studio\Nexus 10\Internal storage\igigbook. I left only the PDF that
are functional in <Book List> : (those that had an associated .PNG and there were several RealBooks without the PNG.
Now when I Power Down PC and Untether the Nexus....should it not be the case that there should be NO LISTING in <MyScores>
OR is it the case that this "Original list" remains in Cache somehow.

I think that somehow the "original" PDF list has some "registry like or log created" features that are hanging up the system.
I am going to send this prior to untethering ( USB) the Nexus from the PC because I know it will freeze. I'll need a "hard reboot".

I had previously (3-4 times ago and then repeated) attempted to "syn" the list of <MyScore> PDFs of the "original" which show as
a list....UNSUCCESSFULLY.

Will get back after I see what happens to the <MyScores> list after DELETING them from "igigbook.

Hi,
Finally Some SUCCESS. I Deleted the PDF as mentioned. I did not need to reboot. With the USB connected to PC I returned to <MyScores> saw the "original" list. RESCAN and it was then gone. Added PDF's as we discussed. Things look good in general.
With the "link" I now understand why the "swipe" does what it does. However, it seems that with most of the PDF's when
I open the first few pages are fine. Back and forth is fine. When I get to page "4" the lower third does not get me to page "5"
it merely shifts the position page "up or down" slightly on the screen. Its is not with all the files but with quite a few of them.
I have only added and rescaned about 7-8 PDF's. I'll add the remainder in small groups for testing.
Any thoughts here about the "hangup" on page "4' ?? . At least there is a much more significant resolution of the problems here.

Thanks

Jason

I would review the link about navigation. It sounds to me like you're toggling in and out of full screen mode.

Well things look real good now. I will return to the "page turn link" and review it. Was easily able to copy 30-40 PDFs to
<My Scores>...ALL OPEN and ALL fully FXAL. Did find an "offending" PDF which I attempted to copy several times with same results failure. That is a minor inconvenience...it feels wonderful to have so much access to so much music. And I can now appreciate and understand how a single PDF might create such a "offensive" problem.

I really appreciate your sticking with me on this one. Since I had and still have a bit of trouble turning pages I decided to boot into Win 7 and install to "igigbook" from that O/S to see if there might be any difference. All went well except for that "1" PDF.

Thanks so much for the assistance and if you wrote the code for this one ....Thanks so much for the app. The cost is "miniscule" for the job it sets out to do.

Now I have to see how to index and see if others on the site have some things to "trade" around. This will just be a casual
project. You've accomplished something wonderful for me.

Thank you very much

Jason
