Classic Real Book 5th Edition Eb not indexing on Android Tablet Correctly

Post by corgijazz »

I have successfully uploaded the Real Book 6th Edition Eb to my android tablet.

I have the pdf for the Classic Real Book 5th Edition Eb. When I link it to the igigbook index and then click "A Night in Tunisia", I get "Afternoon in Paris". Those are offset by 3 songs. If I was searching for a song, it would get the wrong chart too.

I tried modifying the pdf with adobe to get rid of the second page of 2 page songs thinking that may have been the issue but that didn't work.
Then, I thought if what I did for the 6th edition worked, why didn't it work for the Classic Real Book? Could it be related to my android Samsung S7 2021 tablet?

Any help?

How To Adjust An Index To Fit Your PDF

i wouldn't start manipulating the PDF until I was sure about where it was missing pages or had pages out of order. Getting rid of the second page of a 2 page song only makes your problems worse. Review the PDF that you have, meaning check that it has all of the pages if after applying the correct offset using the method outlined in the linked how to fails to work for you.
