  Search and filter options missing
Posted by: Bee - 03-22-2019, 02:27 PM - Forum: MobileSheetsPro (Android) - Replies (2)


I have a horrible feeling this is a dumb question. The search / filter options bar has gone missing on my library screen on my Samsung Galaxy TabS2 and I can't work out how to get it to reappear. It is still there on my W10 version on Surface Pro. 

I've tried looking through the Manual and done a search on the forum, but I can't find anything. 

Can you please tell me how to get the search bar back again?

Many thanks

  Restoring Database
Posted by: Geoff Bacon - 03-21-2019, 08:01 AM - Forum: MobileSheetsPro (Android) - Replies (7)

I copied all songs in a collection into a set list and then removed several songs.

Unfortunately, I meant to remove them from the set list and not the collection!

As it happens, I did make a backup with the Companion this morning so I wouldn't lose much restoring the database.
I tried selecting all the songs in the copied set list and created a collection. However, this loses all the song modification dates; probably not the end of the world but I do sometimes sort by modified date. It looks like the file creation data is preserved. 
So should the modified date be changed when one adds a file to a list ? (the file hasn't changed but the list has)

To retain the modified dates, I'm guessing I could just extract the .db file from the backup and replace the one on the tablet - would that work and is that sufficient?

If I choose to restore the full backup, do I need to do anything first (like delete existing files and restart MSP to create an empty database). If I do restore, will the modified dates be maintained or will they be set to the date of the restoration (if the restoration date is used then there isn't much point doing a restore).


  Song versions?
Posted by: sciurius - 03-19-2019, 05:33 PM - Forum: MobileSheetsPro (Android) - Replies (2)

I occasionally run into the following situation.

With a couple of friends we (sometimes spontaneously) decide to play a couple of songs. So I take my tablet, create a new setlist, and transfer some of my existing songs to it. Meanwhile some other songs are send to me by the other participants so I add these as well.

During rehearsal, or during the gig, we decide to make changes to some of the songs. Play faster or slower, change the key, add some annotations. For the sake of simplicity, let's concentrate on a single song, 'Caledonia', that I play a.o. with the Irish group HowsaGoin. During the aforementioned gig we change its key from Bflat to D.

This change affects the actual song, so the next time I play this song with HowsaGoin I suddenly have it in the wrong key.

To overcome this, I must either remember to undo all changes (impossible), or the changes must be kept local to the setlist (alternatively, collection) and not affect other lists.

Mike, is this dealt with the 'song versions' you are working on?

  MobileSheetsPro for E-Ink Devices now available
Posted by: Zuberman - 03-16-2019, 04:05 AM - Forum: News - Replies (12)

A specialized version of MobileSheetsPro optimized for e-ink devices such as the Boox Max 2 Pro is now available on the FastSpring store here: https://zubersoft.onfastspring.com/

This version is different from the standard version of MobileSheetsPro in the following ways:

- The entire application uses a light theme.  Almost all icons and text are black on white providing the greatest contrast and easy readibility. All screens in the application have been updated to work well on e-ink devices.
- Almost all animations in the app have been eliminated. This results in faster page turns, better transitions between tabs on the library screen, and fewer graphical artifacts.
- Freeform annotations with the stylus utilize special rendering on Boox devices allowing the drawings to show up in real time. This makes it much easier to write and draw. The stylus eraser can also be used when in freeform mode to draw a box around content to erase.
- Optimizations have been put in place for pinch zooming and scrolling to make them more fluid
- A new application icon was created that matches the design of the other standard application icons. 

If you are the owner of an e-ink device such as the Boox Max 2 Pro, this is the version you will want to use. For users that have already purchased MobileSheetsPro through the FastSpring store, you can download www.zubersoft.com/mobilesheets/android/mobilesheets_eink.apk to replace your current version with the e-ink version. For users that purchased through Google Play, you will need to contact me at mike@zubersoft.com so I can provide a license key after verifying your previous purchase information.

I may put together a short video clip of the Boox Max 2 Pro running this version if any users are interested. I am extremely impressed with the Boox Max 2 Pro now and I think it's a great choice for anyone wanting a 13" device with great battery life.

Has there been any reports of MSP being successfully run on Linux, specifically Ubuntu?

  Losing Persistant Filter (resolved)
Posted by: jagny42 - 03-13-2019, 06:57 AM - Forum: MobileSheetsPro (Android) - Replies (1)

I have 1,468 songs on MS.  I have a persistent filter to eliminate all Xmas songs which gives me 1,390 songs.  if I set this filter it eliminates the Xmas songs but then if I do a search on something and then X out the search MS is losing the filter and showing me all 1,468 songs.

  Pop up dialog boxes hidden
Posted by: Poparad - 03-11-2019, 02:36 AM - Forum: MobileSheetsPro (Android) - Replies (4)

I'm using the latest MobileSheetsPro an Android 4.2.1. I just imported a new song via Dropbox and when I went to select the album/collection/etc for it, nothing popped up. At first I thought the tablet locked up because the screen wasn't responsive, but hitting the 'back' button returned me to the import song window just like normal when the album/collection/etc dialog box is popped up. I skipped selecting an album for the file and when I hit "OK," and it would normally progress to auto copping the pages, the same thing happened. It looked like I was just on the main directory screen, but it was unresponsive because the cropping dialog box was running, just not visible. After a few seconds (the expected time to complete cropping), I regained control of the screen.

I'm guessing the dialog boxes are popping under or off screen?

  Can I hide a PDF file in a setlist?
Posted by: huetay - 03-10-2019, 07:46 AM - Forum: MobileSheetsPro (Android) - Replies (3)

I am in love with MobileSheets.. It has reduced my 15 lb binder down to simple tablet..  I am now pondering how to handle my set lists.. The largest benefit to me with MS is that I can link multiple PDFs to a single song and it can show up in many collections.. So when we are in practice I have easy access to all the details/versions of the song.. A lot of them I have lyric sheets and Transcription pages (ie music staff etc) which originated as separate PDFs.  I know that I can hide individual pages within the PDF using the page order feature.. But is there any way I can hide an entire PDF from showing when in a setlist or performance?

Any guidance would be appreciated.  Thanks, Tammy.

  Screen goes off
Posted by: Furay - 03-10-2019, 06:04 AM - Forum: MobileSheetsPro (Android) - Replies (2)


I'm in a band and we all use tablets, synchronized with midi
Since v2.5.1, the bassist screen goes off sometimes
I think it's because of this new feature:
-The screen will now automatically turn off after 1 hour of inactivity regardless of the screen lock

The thing is that he doesn't touch the screen to change songs, the midi does it
If I'm right, is it possible to choose if we want the automatic turn off screen after 1 hour?

Thank you for the good work with this app!

Is There a way to send a midi command on a page with a pedal?

I use many patches during song, now i need another pedal connected to my synth.
