Title: Songbook and Page Flip ?
Post by: Bob88 on August 08, 2020, 07:39:35 PM
  I have  a Cicada Page Flip (page turner)  I have used it with Songbook for sometime.  It has worked well until recently when suddenly the pages on Songbook do not respond to the page turner.    I replaced the batteries and still it will not function.   I am waiting to hear back from the Page Flip company.   Wondering if any other members use this setup and might recommend a solution.    Ironically  on the Page Flip website Songbook is not listed with a number of other apps as being compatible. It has functioned fine with Songbook for years.  Thanks.  Bob

Hi Bob,

could it be that you turned off Bluetooth on the iPad?

If you do not need a WiFi connection on the iPad, it is recommended to first turn on the Airplane mode and then turn on Bluetooth.


Best regards,
Chris

Have you upgraded to to the new version of Songbook, or are you still on the old one?

Cheers,
Fred

  Update on Page Flip problem on Ipad.   Well I just checked Page Flip with Forscore and it works perfectly.   So, something in Songbook is not recognizing it. .    I cannot find anything
in the Songbook settings to make a correction.   It was compatible before.  Bob

Rick:   Just discovered the Page Flip works great with a 2 page pdf but not 3,4,5 or more pages.   Right peddle causes previous page to open and left peddle activates the next page just the reverse of how it works with 2 pages.  Waiting on  Songbook+ for a solution.  Regards, Bob

Hi Bob,

Iím not familiar with the Cicada pedal, but to me that sounds more like a pedal problem more then a Songbook problem. Post the model of your pedal, so I can check out the manual on it.

  Hi Rick:   The Page Flip is now working properly with Songbook+.  After a number of responses from  Songbook+ tech support the issue was found to be  due to a foot pedal setting in Songbook itself.  Page up and down settings needed to be reversed from what I had selected. Thank you for your
interest in my problem.  Regards, Bob
