Snippet from multi-PDF song
#1
Hi Mike,

There is some page numbering weirdness when snipping things out of a song consisting of more than one PDF.

i have a songbook consisting of 7 PDFs, each containing a chapter of the book. All 7 PDFs are imported into a single song in MSP (1184 pages). When i navigate to e.g. page 596 to create a snippet out of pages 596-597, the "create snippet" dialog fills the page field with "596". When i try to change the number to "596-597", the "Enter the page order" dialog lists "total pages in file 302" - that is the number of pages in the PDF containing the right chapter... And i cannot enter the absolute page number. But at this point i do not know the correct page number relative to the beginning of the chapter... 
In my case this needs to be adjusted to something like 596-(number of pages in PDFs before the current one).

If i just press OK (without trying to change the page numbers), the created snippet never renders (spins until manual abort) and has the "too large for this PDF" page number translated into a Page order: "0".

Files: (the correct file in the middle...)
Page order is "0", pages in file:1

The obvious workaround is to catenate the PDFs outside of MSP and have only one file per song.  Tongue

Best regards,
