Bouncing out (flattening) large files using number of pages fields

When you flatten (i.e. bounce) out set lists containing large files, unrealBook needs to know the lengths of the songs otherwise it will bounce out the entire file starting from the first page of the set list entry which could be from an index or bookmark. 

If the bookmark or index entry doesn't have a number of pages indicated, this could create large files that are not needed or even crash the app.

For this reason, you should enter the number of pages of a song if you want the flatten/bounce to work properly.

For bookmarks:

Choose Bookmark This Page from the Do menu:

Then enter the number of pages the song is in the PDF

For indexes:

Create a new index or edit an existing one:

Choose your index or choose +/Verify and create or edit an index.

In the index editor, enter the number of pages in the corresponding field for each entry.

In the above case, all songs are 1 page long (circled in green). But if they were more than one page, you would see 2, 3, etc for the number of pages.
Once this has been done, all of the share commands should be much faster and reliable.
