Dealing with large multi-song PDF files

unrealBook deals with large multi-song PDF files in the following ways:

1:Bookmarks. When you create a bookmark, a small file is created that points to the page you are bookmarking. You can then search and load this bookmark like any other file but all it does is load the large PDF and turn to the page you have bookmarked. If you define the number of pages in a bookmark, and you share a set list with the flatten option (in the + button on the set list toolbar), unrealBook will try and only include those pages - not the entire PDF file.

2: Export pages window. You can export a page or a number of pages as a separate file. This will basically create a new pdf from the original file which you can access like any other file in the documents folder.

3: Indexes: you need to create these (see the help), but this a file that has a listing of all of the songs in the real book. You can search and load these indexes and choose from any of the songs listed and the PDF file will be loaded and turned to the page. Note that the number of pages is used in set list mode. Without it, unrealBook will not know when to turn to the next file or when to stop flattening the song.
