  1. Similar to the Overall Title field you can use under Title information, would it be possible to have something under storylines that would let you pull up all issues from a crossover? For instance, Marvel ran Contest of Chaos across many of its 2023 Annuals, so in theory you would be able to click on the Overall Storyline to pull up all issues from the crossover. I'm not sure if there would be a way to differentiate between tie-in issues and and issues that are directly part of the crossover, but that would be great too. Thanks!
  2. @Mark J. Castaneda I ran a Collection overview for books, magazines, and comics, and none of them display cover images, however, the auto-generated collection overviews for all three categories display cover images. I also ran item checklists of series I own with "items in my collection " checked for all three categories and they also do not have any cover images when looking at the reports under My Comics. However the cover images do appear if you do preview of the report.
  3. I just ran a collection report for comics and I am also getting covers. It's only Books and Magazines that won't display covers when running a report and using the Save to Web function.
  4. I just noticed that ID labels are printing titles much bigger now when space allows for it. That's a great little update. Thanks! And just out of curiosity, how hard would it be to add a few new fields to the ID label? One I'd really like to see is the cover date.
  5. I don’t think this is the same situation I have. The auto-generated report for magazines lists everything I own and there is a cover image for every item. However, if I run the exact same report myself and use the save to web function, not one single picture is displayed.
  6. Here's what a report for Magazines looks like:
  7. Thanks. My reports are showing up now. But I do have another question. Is there a reason cover images won't display on the reports that I generate myself? Cover images are present on the auto generated reports but not my own, and I do have the standard image size selected when I create the report. Thanks!
  8. I was just coming here to comment on this as well. The last auto-generated report I have is from March 26th. I also ran a few custom reports and saved to web last week and they have yet to show up.
  9. As of my post yesterday it was still the smaller image, but I just checked this morning and it looks like a larger image became available on your end. When I checked the picture folder I found a new image larger than the one I had been trying to add. So problem solved I guess. At least until it happens again.
  10. I just updated to 4K Archive Edition v24.0.0.1165 and tried again, but I am still getting the same result.
  11. I'm trying to replace an existing cover with a slightly larger and cleaner version, but every time I add it it automatically re-downloads the old version. Any idea why this might be happening? I am currently running the current build of the 4K Archive Edition.
  12. In the last livestream Pete mentioned that an update to the Mobile App is in the works. Do you have an ETA on that?
  13. I definitely only have one database and I haven't created any new ones. I checked both spots you pointed out and only one database appears. I'll let you know if it happens again, but I can't see any reason why empty databases are getting created. For what it's worth, each time an empty database turns up the unique identifier has been composed entirely of zeroes.
  14. This has happened to me a few times now. I was given the same advice in this thread and it cleared the issue up, but then last weekend another empty database showed up under My Comics. Do you know of any reason why this could keep happening?
  15. I've run into an odd situation. When I open up the mobile app to run a search it says there are no saved reports. I checked the database and there are two identically named databases. When I switch over to the other one of the same name all my content is there. Thinking I had two databases setup I checked my settings in sidekick, but I only have one database listed in there. I then logged into the ComicBase website to check My Comics, and sure enough there are two identically named databases in there as well. I thought I'd be able to remove the empty database from there but there is no option to do so. Any ideas? I am using the 4K Archive Edition, v24.0.0.941
  16. I know there's a thread for this over in the ComicBase Mobile forum, but it doesn't seem to be getting much attention so I thought I'd mention it here too. With so many items being moved from the Comic category over to the Magazine category, it would be really handy to have the ability to search all categories in the Item Lookup of the Mobile App. Right now the only way (that I know of) to search for items under the magazine or book categories is to view a report. The only other method I can think of would be to create a separate database for each category and then switch databases to do the search, but I for one would prefer to have everything I own sitting in the same database. Thanks for considering!
  17. I have changed the schedule to when I'm not gaming, but I really don't like leaving my computer running all the time. If I miss the backup window because my computer is off it resets too 11:00 PM. Is there any way to avoid this scenario? Also, I did update the software right after my initial post. Thanks.
  18. I've recently run into a problem with automatic backups. I have been playing a new game on my PC and when "Save to Cloud" starts running my game just becomes unplayable. I changed the schedule so that backups happen in the morning so it doesn't interfere with my gameplay at night, but if my PC isn't turned on at the time the backup is scheduled it reverts back to the original schedule of 11:00 pm. This also happens to the other items on the schedule that I have activated (updates and compacting). Is there a way that I can stop it for reverting back to 11:00 PM? I am currently running v23.2.2.2814. My PC specs: Processor Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-8700K CPU @ 3.70GHz 3.70 GHz Installed RAM 32.0 GB System type 64-bit operating system, x64-based processor GPU: NVIDIA GeForce RTX2080 Edition Windows 11 Home Version 22H2 Installed on ‎2022-‎10-‎01 OS build 22621.1702 Experience Windows Feature Experience Pack 1000.22641.1000.0
  19. Sooooooo....... Might there be any progress on this front? Thanks!
  20. Yep, and this is the key thing that Fred was talking about. You can only see the new cover after you finish entering your comics and display them after saving. It would be very useful if you could see the newly downloaded cover from the Add by Barcode window. You are correct. That was my experience this evening, although I may not have explained it clearly enough in my post.
  21. I just wanted to follow-up on something that was covered during the last Livestream. Fred mentioned that he'd like to see auto downloading of new covers when entering by barcode and Pete told us that as long as "Automatically download larger pictures when viewing items" was checked under preferences that it should work. Well, I made sure to update my preferences and I just finished entering a batch of new comics and I can tell you that it still does not seem to work. I scanned in Batman #133 and despite interacting with the entry several different ways from the "Add by Barcode" window, the cover image wouldn't display. I just got the (outdated) DC logo as the cover image thumbnail. However, as soon as I closed the Add by Barcode window and all the items I had just scanned were displayed, the cover image for Batman 133 showed up.
  22. No problem. I just deleted all issues of #2 and forced an update and it's all good. I also had to delete the cover images and re-download them so they were the correct images though.
  23. I was wondering about that. I wasn't sure how the update process worked or whether it could simply change the variation instead of deleting it.
