show-stopping pedal problem
#5
Yes, I got the spinning circle trying to render pages (both pages in 2 page mode appearing dark grey or black, depending on your gamma settings I suppose), so it very well may be related to the other thread you mentioned.

I was running with speed mode enabled, not quality mode.
The .pdf is one long song - more than 200 pages
I've used this exact .pdf before, without a single instance of spinning circle, etc.
As I said, the only way to get out of the grey-circle turning-loop is to press the pedal, which stops the loop but renders a seemingly random page from elsewhere in the long score.

I have no time to open any preferences or do anything during the performance: I am the only musician playing, and once I start, I must continue playing the entire score - non-stop - for the following hour and a half. I pretty much never stop playing, which is why I use the firefly pedal to turn pages. Quite frankly, when I had the problem during the soundcheck, I thought at one point that the spinning circle, grey pages, etc. actually started by itself...before I'd even touched the pedal. Now I'm not sure I was imagining this.

As I said, this has happened during a rehearsal, but until last night never during a performance. When it's happened, it's occured in different places, not when it reaches one particular page.

I'm now more distraught than ever, having read that this is an existing problem for other users as well.

What to do, Mike?

I'm so sorry that happened in the middle of your performance!  You said you saw a spinning circle when the page wouldn't load, which would indicate it's a different problem than the one described in this thread http://zubersoft.com/mobilesheets/forum/...263&page=4

I've been trying to work on that issue, and today I've been going through thousands of songs to see if I can recreate any errors with pages not loading. So far, I've had no luck. I'm almost tempted to add support for some kind of gesture or touch action that forces a refresh of the current page, even though that shouldn't be necessary when things are working the way they are supposed to.  

I'll switch to testing with the two page mode with a pedal to see if I can reproduce the problem you saw. If you happen to find any additional information that helps with reproducing the issue, please let me know. You were testing with the "Quality" render preference enabled, correct?

Mike
