For example you can put the Hot Spot on a page with a CODA so when you double tap on the footswitch, you wil jump to the page that the Hot Spot is on. The Hot Spot is acting as a marker that you jump to.

Assigning a Hot Spot to a BlueBoard Foot Switch (iOS 7 and above) set to controller 13 or Controller 14

 

You can assign 2 footswitches on the BlueBoard to act as jump to switches. The most obvious example is a DS and CODA. Set a footswitch on the BlueBoard to controller 13 and another to controller 14. Now place a Hot Spot on the DS page and then set Use with BlueBoard to ON and set the Jump to here with BlueBoard Footswitch to controller 13. Then place another Hot Spot on the page with a CODA and then set Use with BlueBoard to ON and set the Jump to here with BlueBoard Footswitch to controller 14. Now when you press the footswitch set to controller 13, you jump to the page with a DS. Press the footswitch assigned to controller 14 and then you will jump to the page with a CODA.

Bookmark this Page


Bookmark this Page

 

There will be times when you have a large document but you want to refer to songs in that document as individual songs. Bookmarks allow you to do this. Go to the page in the document that you want to treat as a file and press the Do button and choose Bookmark This Page and enter the number of pages of the song. Name your new Bookmark and it will appear in the All Files list like any other file. Choose the bookmark and your document will be loaded with the page showing.
You can use Bookmarks in set lists like any other file. Bookmarks are simply pointers to a PDF, they tell unrealBook to load the actual PDF that the Bookmark refers to. # of pages is a setting that will affect how the bookmarks turn through set lists. Set this if you have bookmarks to songs in a PDF that have multiple pages.

The default number of pages is zero. This means to ignore this field – which was the way previous versions of unrealBook worked prior to 1.7. If you want to turn through bookmarks in a set list without having to use the next and previous arrows, then set this field to the number of pages that your song is. For example if a bookmark points to page 10, and page 10 has a song that is 3 pages long, then set the # of Pages field to 3.

Save and add to set list will create the bookmark and add it to the current set list.
(Note: Export Pages can substitute for the bookmark feature as well and may work better since it creates a new document).
