I added all the blank pages etc...


I think there is an error for the song "A Felicidade": it does link correctly to pages 137 and 138

however: if you take the previous song "Fascinating Rhythm" at page 135-136, and you swipe the screen to go to "A Felicidade", you go to the next song "A Foggy Day" at page 139. How come ?

Even though you've added blank pages, you can still have pages out of order.

"Facscinating Rhythm" has page 135 marked at the top left of the chart and is 2 pages(135-136). "A Felicidade" has page 137 marked at the top left and is 2 pages(137-138). This index has been double and triple checked for accuracy, there may be a problem with the PDF that you have.

If you look at the song listing that's the order the songs will appear in if you swipe. "Foggy Day, A" falls under "F" while "A Felicidade" falls under "A".

Exactly ...

but why is it like that: swiping should be no different than turning a page. now it's just alphabetically.

There's two discreet navigation functions:

1. Advancing to the next page in a book, which may not be the next song in an index.

2. Advancing to the next song in an index.

That's why there's a difference between taping and swiping.

The index in Igigbooks is wrong for the Standards real book. Dead Wrong. End of story.
.
An easy fix is unthinkably complicated.
.
It should have been fixed in the software by now. It's 2014.

"A Felicidade" should be "Falicidade A" for one thing. Just like ""Foggy Day A"
.
Right there you got off on the wrong foot. It's a bust.
.
If you go to buy this book from the Sher music company and look at the index, "After you" and NOT,
"A Falicidade", is the first tune.
.
You should send us a fix for that bug.

The listing of songs you see in the Book List detail view will not always be in the same order as it is in the actual book. What's critical is the link between the song that you select and the music that is displayed. The reason you, I and others use this app is so that we can begin typing in the name of a song and we can select the result that we want.
