I added more PDFs in my my windows 10 PC to the iGigbook folder in my Android tablet. After rebooting several times these new PDFs still don;t appear in My Scores and I cannot view them in iGigbook on my tablet. I dragged and dropped just like I had with all the other PDFs in my iGigbook. Did I forget a step?

The My Scores view has a refresh button, when you add files you have to refresh to the see the newly added files. We don't automatically re-scan the folder because it would take a while so we leave it at the discretion of the user.

I want to add more fake books from My Lists and I'm following the tutorial and I added the "sample" book but after that I go t o My Scores but no others can be added; example: safakebk.pdf does not appear under under unindexed scores. in fact No unindexed scores appear. What step am I leaving out?

safakebk.pdf is the book code for the "Straight Ahead Jazz Fakebook", if you added that PDf and have the "Straight Ahead Jazz Fakebook" index in the Book List view, you will not see that PDF in the My Scores view, since it's an indexed PDF and My Scores lists PDF that have no corresponding index.

What I am trying to do is index that pdf so it will appear in the Book List. The tutorial video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=69OPKSm0xTU
says I will find that among unindexed scores by going to My Scores. There are no scores found when I do this although I did list the "sample" pdf. I typed sample in search but that appeared but it doesn't work for any other of the pdfs listed That's the only one that worked. what step is missing in the video that makes those appear? Or is there a better resource for learning to do this?

Is the "Straight Ahead Jazz Fakebook" in your Book List View?

No, it is not in the Book List view, I am trying to put it there using the directions in the video I referred to. In the video and it another tutorial from iGigbooks it says I will find the pdf (in this case safakebk.pdf) in My Scores. Please look at the video maybe and tell me how I can get those :unindexed scores to appear in my My Scores so I can click on one and "Link to Index", or direct me to a better resource. thanks .

Take at look at How To Add Indexes To Your Book List View

Post a screen capture of your My Scores View and your Book List view, screen capture = hold the power button and press the Home Key.

I don't know where a home key is on my LG android tablet. I will study the manual for how to make a screenshot. A photo from my phone is too large a manual. I'll get back to you
