  1. Brian, your description sounds very much like mine; I also use an SSD, and the situation hasn't changed, despite optimizing my computer as Mark described. My gut tells me it's related to the 2020 version, but the delay didn't start immediately upon converting to the 2020 version.
  2. Craig, I find the same situation you describe, re: a corrected error still showing up in the search list, but yielding negative results if I search on it after I've made the correction(s). Rebuilding the list to update the index as Steven recommended fixes that, at least, it always has for me - until the error recurs in the master database and gets downloaded into my database.
  3. Had a pleasant conversation with Pete, and he found the problem and wrote a solution. I rebuilt my pictures list and have tried a half dozen issues, all successful wrt letting me download the cover in the CB database. Thanks! Mike
  4. Hercules Unchained, that is! Besides showing up in its proper place, this issue is also in the database under the series title "Hercules Unchained" with only one issue to the run, issue #1121. The latter record should be removed. r/ Mike
  5. Yep, good question. I'm also wondering if the reset will return the columns to their default order from the rearranged order I use, along with having adjusted some column widths, renaming some custom fields, colors, etc. r/ Mike
  6. I updated my software to the new release this morning. Aside from a small cosmetic change in the color of the background, it seems to be operating properly. However, when I entered ctrl <T> to bring up the title list, the dialog box appeared left of center on the screen, far enough left of center that I dragged it back to where my eyes are used to going. Every time I open the title list, it opens far left of center; I can't find a way to get it to open where I want it (centered on the screen). Is this a locked accompanying feature of the new version, or is there some way I can reset a preference so that the dialog box will open where I want it? r/ Mike
  7. Re: above - I forgot to add that I execute step 2 above on an issue for which I have no cover in the appropriate picture folder.
  8. 1. I open a title, of which I have some of its issues and covers. 2. I click on the far left box of a row to highlight the row. 3. With the row highlighted, I right-click my cursor and select "Download Cover." The pop-up window appears "No new or larger covers for the selected items are currently available" This has been happening regardless of whether the quantity cell contains '1' or '0' (re: step #2). r/ Mike
  9. Here's another piece of information to add to the mystery - I encountered the same problem with Shadow Comics #34 (Vol. 3 #10) this morning, and upon checking AA, I see that there is a cover scan available on the site. What's ironic is that it's a cover scan I uploaded previously; I know it's mine because of the "Bidwell" scribbled in pencil on the cover. I have that copy in front of me. However, my original scanned image is no longer in my picture folder and when I try to download it, I get the "no cover available" message.
  10. I'm using the Archive Edition (v3297). This issue started on Tuesday, 7/14/20, never an occurrence prior to that. I've been using the Archive Edition since it was first released.
  11. Continuing from the previous post - I submitted for review a cover scan of my copy, no prompt to ask if I wanted to send the cover. Then, I replaced it with a big-ass version of the same scan. This version did prompt the dialog box telling me that I have a cover scan bigger than what CB has, and would I like to upload it now - which I did. It appears that I'm getting the "no cover available" when there is, in fact, a cover available, and presumably I'm not being asked if I want to upload a cover I created because the covers I create are smaller than what CB already has. I understand the software not wanting a cover that is smaller than what CB already has, but none of this explains why I get the "no cover available" message when I attempt to download a cover. I'll add here that I'm only trying to download a cover that I don't already have in my picture folder. r/ Mike
  12. The situation continues, so today I went to the AA listings to check for cover status. I don't have a cover scan of Popular Comics #103 (Sep 1944) in my picture folder, so I attempted to download it from the CB database. The dialog box opened with the "no cover available" message. However, when I went to this issue on AA, the listing includes a cover scan. I thought CB and AA shared a common repository for covers, i.e., if a cover is available to show in AA, then that cover is available to download for a user's personal database. Is this not the case? r/ Mike
  13. These issues have started shipping and are in stores (Diamond is shipping them incrementally, several titles per week). Are any of them in the database yet? I've searched a variety of ways but come up empty every time. r/ Mike
  14. I've been adding Golden Age issues to my collection through the day, all 1940s and 1950s issues. Several of them showed no cover in my database, and when I tried to download one, I received the "we don't have one" popup window. So, I scanned my own copy, added it, and then submitted it for review. Every time, I received the "thanks for your submittal" popup window, but never once got the dialog box asking if I want to upload my cover - which is unusual, since from your end I was told you didn't have that cover. Any thoughts on why this is happening? And, should I submit the covers some other way? r/ Mike
