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).
Stay In Files Not In Set List – When on, this will treat any files opened from the Songs Menu as a single file even when you are in a set list. This will lock you on to the current song so that even if you turn past the last page, you will still stay in the current document.To go back to the set list, use the previous or next buttons on the set list toolbar or choose a song from the set list popup. This will prevent you from making a mistake and turning out of a song you have loaded on the spur of the moment.
Add songs to Set List Temporarily– experimental – any files chosen will add to the current set list temporarily so you can go back to them easily in the middle of performance. This is similar to Stay In Files Not In Set List but not as “clean” as any songs you open will be inserted in the set list temporarily and will appear in the set list song popup.
Disable Set List Options – Turn this on to disable the swipe left options in the set list song popup (such as colors etc..)
Undefined Setlist Bookmarks As one Page –If a bookmark number of pages is not defined, treat it as a one page bookmark in set lists.
Don’t Load First Song in Set List – Primarily used for the master iPad. You can browse set lists and load them, but no commands are sent to the slaves until you choose a song from the set list.
Long press highlight name in set list popup – If this is on, then a long press on a name in the set list popup will make the title red. Useful for marking certain titles.
Numbers in set list editor – will prepend numbers in front of the entries in the set list editor.
