getting classic real book to show both ways

Post by brynbad » Sat Aug 22, 2015 8:49 pm

Ok so i am running 1- ipad 2 and 3 - ipad 1's for my band, on one of the ipad 1's when searching for a tune, i cannot see search results indicate that the classic real book and the Bb real book both have the same tune i am looking for, on the other three ipads i can see that the c real book has it and the Bb real book has it. I have two versions of each real book loaded onto the ipads, one labeled: "crealbk1_bb.pdf " and the other labeled crealbk1bb i believe, on all the the ipads except one this is the case, on the one ipad i can use the transpose menu from the c real book to see the tune in the Bb book i am looking for but i cannot see it in the song search results as a separate result, what am i doing wrong ? i have tried everything i can think of including reloading everything and copying eactly what is on the other three ipads.....

When you're using the single index system, you will only see the search results from the "C" book even though once you display that song you can transpose it to Bb, Eb or Bass clef if you have those other PDF files named accordingly.

What version of iGigBook do you have on the iPad 1?

My C and Bb real book versions have different page numbers. Just renaming the Bb book doesn't work ... Is there a way to overcome this? I'm a new user with a Samsung tablet.
Thanks,
Charlie

You have to check the PDF, guaranteed that pages in one of the books are in the wrong order or missing.

There is an extra title page in the Bb book ... books 2 and 3 have a similar mismatch between c and Bb versions. So the pages are ordered the same but the actual page numbers are different. Is there any way to get past this? The page numbers in both tables of contents are the same but the pdf page numbers are different.

Here's a link to the How To topic about the Single Index System:

If you have extra pages added, missing, moved around, you have to do something to correct that by either removing, adding or rearranging the pages.

I do not want to use the single index system, i would prefer to have the Bb search results show up separately like it does on my ipad 2 which i have been running on igigbook for at least 4 years now.. how can i do this ?

i have tried two versions of each real book loaded onto the ipads, one labeled: "crealbk1_bb.pdf " and the other labeled crealbk1bb but the search results do indicate the chart is available in Bb like my one ipad 2 that does....

Oh and i am like the others my books have different page numbers between the c version and the Bb version

I also cannot adjust the page offset for the Bb books separately from the C books as it only shows under the book list as classic real book, however on my ipad 2 which i have had igigbook running for years now, i get a separate listing for the classic Real book Bb, with the ability to adjust the page offset separately.... this is most annoying...

that i cant adjust the page offset separately when i load the books onto my mutiple other other ipads for the rest of the band... sorry for the multiple posts...

You have a separate listing due to an error on our part, that index isn't available for other users because of the single index system. The only way you would be able to get this index to show on the other iPad's is by logging in with the same user name. Your situation is easily fixed by adding or removing pages from the beginning of the PDF so that it has the same offset as the C version.

I'm stuck here too...

I have separate indices for my C and Bb books. I want to add an Eb book and NOT go to the single index system. What should I do to make this work?


These are the indices for my current setup.

crealbk1bb

Thanks!

Your only option is the Single Index System. Separate indexes for Bb, Eb, and bass books are deprecated.
