    Hi guys,

    I hope you can help me with my iBook app...

    Previously I have a switch button on iBook for Books and PDF. if I select Books then all my ePub will be displayed on the shelf and when I select PDF then all my PDF will be shown on the shelf.

    Today the switch button is gone, and my PDF files are also not displayed in iBooks. Have anybody experienced the same? How can I retrieve my PDF files in IBooks?

    I am on OS 3.2 and iBooks 1.1.2 as of now...

    Thank you

    The only difference is that my software version is 3.2.1, but my iBooks is the same version and I still have both buttons. Maybe try deleting iBooks and re-installing it and if that doesn't work, I would try the 3.2.1 upgrade.

    Are both buttons gone? If so, I'd say you have no PDF's checked in your library and therefore you don't have the option to choose between the two. Before deleting and re-installing anything (which to me is a last resort) check your settings and such when you synch. Make sure you have PDF's checked in your library, etc.

    You may want to check this thread too if your PDF's have mysteriously disappeared.

    How did you move your PDFs to iBooks in the first place?

    I've got about fifty in from Dropbox and emails, not a single one of them from iTunes.

    Open iTunes, drag the PDF into your library (the entire library section will turn blue for a moment and you'll see the familiar upload/download bar) and your PDF will be imported to the "Books" section of your library. Sync to your iPad.

    Oh! That's not what I meant. I was asking how he got his in. And suggesting what he could do instead. Sorry for not being clear...

    I use Dropbox because it's quicker for me. I've got stuff spread in three computers. Dropbox is easier to use and faster, no eternal syncs to wait on...
