Selecting Song Sometimes Results in Wrong Song Being Opened

Post by tonyventura » Thu Dec 05, 2019 6:33 am

Hello,

Can someone please advise how I can solve a problem when I'm trying to open a particular song such as ,"Blue Matter", in "All Jazz Real Book", and a song that I didn't select is opened (Blue Room). This wrong-file-being-open happens quite often but not 100% of the time.

Any assistance would be most appreciated.

Thank you,
Tony Ventura

The "All Jazz Real Book" does not contain the song "Blue Room". Select "Blue Matter" then select the last icon at the top right which is the page navigator. Press the "< 10" button until you reach page 1. Take a screen capture of this page by holding the power button and pressing the home key. Upload the image here or send it to us via email. If you don't know our email address you can find it by selecting the first item in the Book List View titled "Tap Here For Help".

Hi Phil,

Thank you for your reply. As directed, I've upload the cover page and I'm also uploading the song list page that appears immediately after clicking The Real Book icon.

Strange in that when I click on The Real Book thumbnail icon, the title of the song list page is, "All Jazz Real Book".

Thank you for any advice.

This is definitely not the "All Jazz Real Book". To me it looks like some version of the "Real Book 5th Edition" and I would use the "Classic Real Book" index. Take a look at Index Linking 101 which describes how to un-link a PDF from an index.

The indexes created are specific to a particular book you cannot just pick one and hope it works, you must know exactly what you have and pretty much every book has a unique title. It's all about the details.

I have unlinked file as you suggested. Now I'm left with a "PDF Not Present", "All Jazz Real Book", 203 Titles.

I don't mind starting completely over. Is there an easy way to remove every PDF, and start fresh?

When you un-link an index from a PDF there no longer is a PDF linked to the index and that's why the thumbnail changes to "PDF Not Present". You don't have a PDF for the "All Jazz Real Book" and because of that you can't link a PDF to that index and expect it to work because it will not.

As I explained to you earlier the PDF you have seems to be the "Classic Real Book". Did you try linking your PDF to that index? To do that you're going to need to carefully read the following How To: https://forum.igigbook.com/viewtopic.php?f=22&t=1529
