Index Issues with New Real Book Volume 1

Hi,

I just purchased The New Real Book Volume 1 directly from the publisher (Sher Music). Looking at the PDF on my MAC I see that all of the pages are there. I loaded the PDF version on to my iPad. The index is totally out of whack. The PDF file is correctly named (nrealbk1.pdf) and the pages show up in the app, however the index points to the incorrect pages. Is there an index that works properly with a legal version of The New Real Book Volume 1? If not how can I get iGigBook to correctly index my version?

Your help is greatly appreciated!

Steve

You didn't purchase "The New Real Book Volume 1", you purchased "The New Real Book (Digital Edition)" a different book. You have linked your PDF to the wrong index.

Thanks Phil, You are da' man! I got it working. One more related question. I started down this path because my version of The New Real Book is missing several pages, which threw the index off and made it difficult to get to the correct tune if I was in Song Search mode. Any hints on where can I find a version of The New Real Book that is intact?

All the best,

Steve

:D Many people have probably downloaded the PDf you have, it's missing 2 or 3 songs. You now have the "Digital Edition" which you can pull the missing songs from and add to your version making it intact, the same thing people would do who own the physical book, they scan the missing pages and add them. You already have a PDF source for the missing pages however the PDF from the publisher is superior.

I love iGigBook. I have to admit the documentation leaves a bit to be desired, but the functionality is great. The support team has also been very prompt and helpful. Thanks Phil!
