  1. I was curious if anyone else has a lot of comics from independent sources with very low print runs? I would love to hear any tips or hints at easy ways to handle them. I tend to just put in the most basic info with a publisher created from the creator's name and KickStarter in the notes field. I've probably got 20 or 30 titles so far. Thanks, Pat
  2. It would run like it was meant to. That is what would happen if I booted with all my extensions off. Yay!!! It's my computer! I have been working on networks too long. I didn't even think of doing a safeboot. I will post the culprit once I have identified it. Thank you, Peter!
  3. Using the main title browse field has allowed me to start using ComicBase again, so thank you very much for that tip! I have just over 3,000 comics entered into my CB. When I was using 2017, there was a little delay when I used the Title Browse to skim through all the titles, but CB never crashed when I used it. When I first went to 2020, the Title Browse rendered CB pointless. It crashes to desktop, it locks up for an hour, most of the time it just took 10 45 seconds to respond to any input, and very rarely it would work smoothly. Since I found your above tip, CB has become enjoyable again. As long as I don't use the Title Browse window. I have also found that the back and forward arrows bracketing the Title Browse button work fine, another great plus. My disk I/O is never more than 5%, RAM stays at 4.5/24Gb, and CPU ranges from 30% to 75%. Please don't get me wrong, I love this program and I have no intention of not using it for the foreseeable future. I'm happy to get you any info I can to help CB work better. Thanks, Pat
  4. I have the Archive edition. I found the export option where you said and have exported it successfully. Now for the big part. after I've wiped out the existing install and reinstalled a completely fresh version, I will test it before I import any of my data. I'll let you know how it goes. Thanks, Pat
  5. Sadly it does not appear to be db specific. I created two test databases; one with all of my added fields, publishers, titles, etc. and one with nothing of mine in it. Both databases showed slowness and the crashed to desktop on me with in 10 minutes of working with them. My next option is uninstall the software as completely as I can and try again. Is there a way to dump the data out of the database and then import it into a new fresh database? Possibly a excel spread sheet or a couple csv files? I'm very open to other ideas. If you want to take a look at the database, I can set up a remote control session. Thanks, Pat
  6. Rebuilding the lists helped for a bit. It's back to being very slow. It was a slow 4 count for the titles window to popup and then an 11 count for the first character I typed to appear in the box. The database is 648MB. I've got 3,782 comics currently entered and another 13,000+ that I was slow and steadily entering. Any help will be gratefully accepted. Thanks, Pat

  8. Thank you, Steven!! I'll remember to use those tools in the future. Everything appears to be working great!
  9. Howdy, Ever since I upgraded to 2020 Archive edition, I've had major problems with the software. I had 2017 Archive edition previously. 1. It has been lagging to the point of appearing locked. 2. If I leave it alone to catch up with itself, it frequently is closed when I check in on it a few minutes later. It is barely usable. It takes me a couple day to input my new comics each week. (Anywhere from 8 to 15 issues) Anyone have any ideas? Thanks, Pat
