    What can i do. I have many PDF chapter solutions that i see via ibooks but its such a hassle searching and selecting the correct one. For example, i search for materials, and 4 options show that have that word in it. Only because they are PDF and not have a cover page i can't read the titles, so its just trial and error. Yes if i do my own cover page i can see and find them fast, but that gives me a second job. Any recommendations? Other readers that may display the files info large enough o find. I have over 45 PDFS at the moment and this will pretty much be the case always.

    Thanks in advance.

    Next to the search box there are two buttons. Press the one with the lines and you'll see the titles instead of the covers. You can also change the titles if they need to be more meaningful.

    I email them to myself, and I also use Dropbox or icloud. You can then choose which application to use to open it.

    Good to hear that it worked. It's only easy if you know it's there.

    There have been recent changes in the way iBooks handles PDFs, so learning is a continual process.

    Hey thanks a bunch Kevin and Redjupiter!! My frustration level went to ZERO! No problems finding what i need now. I have combined my PDFs in different collections but i still have about 15 files per category. Looking at the titles just fixed everything.

    Thanks.
