I enjoy igigbook and have downloaded and linked many books. However, I can't link the New Bob Book Trans book. Do I need to purchase the transpose feature before I can link the book to the index? Thank you. Keep updating, great product.

Are there any other transposable books for the "i Gig Book" besides the "New Bob Book"?

I previously posted how the transpose function would shift the melody notes to an inappropriate octave for most instruments , citing several examples. You promptly fixed it and it worked great.

This seems to have reappeared in recent updates.

An example I mentioned before that was fixed, ‘Round Midnight. When transposed for an Eb instrument, it appears well below the range of the saxophone. This was the case when transposing first came out, was fixed, and now is back. I see this with numerous other songs - Well You Needn’t as another example.

I believe this happened 2 updates ago

A fantastic product, love it, use it often.

The lowest note I'm seeing for "'Round Midnight" is a Bb3. You may be using an earlier version of the PDF especially if you restored from a backup. Try unlinking the current PDF from the index and download the file again.

By pdf, do you mean the New Bob Book - Transpose?
I don’t see how to do what you suggest, that is to unlink and download again
