Press and hold the MODE button. The red LED will flash once per second from 1 to 6 flashes. The number of flashes corresponds to the same MODE number. Be sure to count the flashes.
Release the MODE button following the number of flashes that reflects the desired MODE. The blue and red LEDs will flash together the number of times indicating which MODE has been set.
Example: To set MODE 2 hold the MODE button for 2 flashes of the red LED, release and both LEDS will flash 2 times to confirm the MODE 2 setting.
Note: Once the MODE has been set, it will remain the same until it is changed following the above steps.
Pairing must be reset whenever switching from one device to another or when switching between MODES 1 and 2.
With the PED powered on, press and hold the power button for six seconds. After two seconds, the PED will appear to power down. Continue to hold the power button. At six seconds both LEDs will blink three times. After the third blink release the power button. The device has been reset. Remove any old pairing from your host computer and then turn on the PED to pair again with the desired host computer.
PAIRING IN PED-APP-DIRECT MODE 1

PAIRING IN MODE 2-6
Open your computer’s Bluetooth Setup dialog:

If you swipe up in the middle of the screen in portrait mode, a file color window will appear. You can choose a color that will allow you to visually tag files. This feature is only available in portrait mode.
There are only 2 ways that a file would not show up in unrealBook after refreshing the list manually, either the file is not there or there is no .pdf or .PDF on the end of the filename. unrealBook does a query on all the files and then only shows .pdf or .PDF extension files along with misc. other files it needs.
Accept multiple files without renaming: If you are airdropping a bunch of files, you can send multiple files to unrealBook. It will accept all the files overwriting any duplicates. Use this with caution.
Insert songs at top of setlist: When inserting songs into a set list, add them at the beginning instead of the end.
The “smart” keyboard for the iPad Pro seems to type in a different apostrophe character than the iPad itself. This can result in weird sorting problems. To fix this, use the on screen keyboard or set the Smart Keyboard “U.S. International – PC”. Set this in the settings app of the iPad under Hardware Keyboard.
Having worked on unrealBook for over 10 years now, I have been fortunate to use different bluetooth pedals with unrealBook. Unfortunate as it may be, with barely any use my CODA Stomp now refuses to connect to any device, my iRig Blueturn refuses to connect in a similar fashion with the error “pairing took too long” and now my iRig Blueboard is dropping connections sometimes within seconds and other times after a few minutes.
I am at a loss to explain how a bluetooth pedal can decide to no longer connect. They broadcast to the iPad because I can see them, but when I try to connect they donʻt connect. In fact, the CODA Stomp will lock up with the LED turning off and the power button stuck on.
I have to point out that my Airturn pedals all continue to work and pair.
Here is a common problem. The index points to a PDF but the PDF name is not the same. One way to fix this is to look inside the index (.csv file) and rename the PDF file to match what is in the index.
Another way is to use the Link to new PDF command. Be aware that this will remap ALL entries in the index to the chosen PDF. So you cannot use this for indexes that point to multiple PDF files. This will basically remap all entires in the index to point to a single PDF.
Here’s how to do this:
1: Open an index and press Edit Index
2: Press the downward v (in this picture to the right of Colorado)
3: Choose Link to new PDF and choose a PDF file to remap all entries in the index to.
Once you choose a new PDF, all of the index entries will point to the new PDF.
Allows you to email a backup of the unrealBook preferences file.
Backup All Support Files
Will allow you to backup a zip of the support files that unrealBook creates (minus the PDF files). These are all the support files unrealBook creates minus the PDF files. You can upload to dropbox, email or use Open in… (airdrop).
2-16-22 – 1 finger pan bug. When unrealBook is made active, 2 finger pan is enabled in landscape mode. This is a bug. Will be fixed in the next beta due out shortly. This will be the last iOS 12 version.
1-27-22 FIXED – Airturn does not turn pages after entering and exiting drawing mode. This is as far as I know a new problem with the Airturn library and iOS15. This only happens with the keyboard airturn devices. For this reason, I highly recommend that people purchase the newer Airturn Direct line of pedals – BT-200. They will have less problems moving forward and will be less subject to breaking every time Apple releases a new operating system. WORKAROUND – Go to Songs->All Files and load a song or simply open and close the all files popup.
