Composer

Very frustrated … I loaded a book into iGigbook—it shows up in"Book list" okay, but when I select the book, the individual songs show the composer as "N/A". How do I enter the composer name for each tune, so that I can then use "Find Composers"?
I like using this app, but intuitive is not the first word that springs to mind! "iGigbook Help" appears to be an oxymoron … :twisted:

Which "Book" did you load into iGigBook in other words what index are you using? How is "iGigBook Help" an oxymoron, when I'm assisting you right now?

Yeah, sorry about that, just venting my frustration. I thought my question was a simple one, but can't seem to find the answer—I made up a book of free tunes from an artist's website, gave it an index # and loaded it into iGigbook through iTunes as instructed. I'm sure I put the composer's name in there, but it doesn't show up.
All I want to do is get back into the book and add his name, but can't find instructions on how to do that. Should be easy, surely? :D

You didn't include composer data for your index. When you add an entry you can add a composer or select a composer from a list that you have created. It looks like you have created one composer "Roberto Menescal" which you can assign to any song entry. If you want to add a composer, in the Content Manager, select Composers followed by Add New. You can also edit any of the song titles you have created and type in the composer name which will add to your list of composers.

Ah hah!
Is there a way to select all the tunes and attribute them to one composer, like you can in iTunes? I guess it worked, just have to wait for my wife to finish with the iPad!! :lol:

Thanks
