The bookmarks I am making are not searchable

Post by Gary Rosen »

The material for iGigBook says, "Bookmarks are a great way to reference sections/songs of a larger score or book and allows you to provide meaningful names for those sections/songs that will show up in the Song Title search along with indexed song titles."

I have a PDF of The Real Book Volume VI, but there is no corresponding already-indexed Book on your Book List. So, I started making bookmarks to index the PDF and allow the tunes to be found during a song search. However, after doing a few tunes, I tried it out, and the bookmarks did not come up in song searches. Any idea what I am doing wrong?

Can you post a screen capture of your Song Search Tab with a search term that would match one of the bookmarks you created? Make sure any dimension is 1024 pixels or less.

Here are pics of the bookmarks I have done so far (I've only done a few) and a search for "All About Ronnie" which does NOT return the bookmark that I have made

We changed the way the Song Title Search works in version 9.9: More Information Here

We will update the information on the site to indicate this, thanks for bringing it to our attention.

The search enhancements are part of the "Additional Features Pack" which also includes, Score Drawing, PDF Editing and Cut & Paste: How To Purchase The Additional Features Pack - iPad Only

Hey, Phil,

I paid for the upgrade, but my bookmarks still do not show up in the search results.
