Hello, is there anyway you could put the Bb and Eb real books 1,2 and 3 indices in the content manager? I love that all the Bb and Eb new real book indices are in there. I'm sure you hear this often but the transpose feature doesn't work with books with different numbers of pages and it would be so quick to just have an index for each transposed book. I haven't tried yet but it seems that adding/deleting pages from the original pdf files would be very tedious. Thank you in advance for your help and thank you so very much for creating this app which is such an amazing resource for professional musicians, instructors, and the whole jazz community! I'm sure you don't hear it enough!!!

The reason we no longer offer those indexes anymore is because the books are the same, meaning, the have the same songs on the same page in the book. We created the transpose feature to take advantage of that whereas the New Real Books are different and require a different index. Your issue should only be that you need to make sure that each of the books has the same number of pages prior to the first song. The Preview app on the MAC from Apple allows you to add pages to a PDF and there are many free PDF editors that also allow you to add pages to a PDF.
