  1. Okay, just noticed that hovering the mouse over a cover in the screen saver displays the Title and Issue. Not used to thinking about using the mouse during a screen saver... Have a suggestion that might be difficult to implement... Extra-wide wraparound and gatefold cover scans, when they occur in the screen saver grid, would be better appreciated if they spanned two positions in grid.
  2. Now that I have set a number of titles to "Subscribed", and I can search for upcoming books on subscribed titles, is there a way to get a list of titles with the check box set, and not a giant list of issues?
  3. 1) I go to the menu item "Setup | Custom Fields..." and supply the name "Subscribed" to Title "Custom Check 1" and "Ordered" to Issue "Custom Check 1". If I Modify issue information, my custom name "Ordered" is displayed in the "Custom" tab, but if I go to "Edit Title Information...", my custom name is not showed, instead it still reads "Custom Check 1". 2) I have conducted a Find with issues from many different titles, and so the leftmost column after the image thumbnail in the grid has the comic Title. (My grid includes several custom fields). If I go to the menu item "Setup |
  4. Thanks. I had tried T.[], and ComicTitles. hadn't tried ComicTitles.[] Out of curiosity, why the difference between ComicTitles.AlphabetizedTitle and ComicTitles.[CustomCheck1]?
  5. Want to find recent holes in series I'm interested in. This is the process I envisioned... Search for owned issues over the last year (Street Date), sort by ComicBase order. Walk through the list, deciding which titles have runs of issues I'm interested in verifying. Set a custom Title Checkbox for the titles I'm interested in checking. Search for all issues over the last year (Street Date) of Titles with the Custom Checkbox set, sort in ComicBase order. Walk through the list, setting Issue Wanted checkboxes of issues that I want. 1) It appears tha
  6. I believe so, which is why I posted a recipe that used it.
  7. I added a bunch of issues with the app, adding the current date, "1/7/21" in the Notes field. After imported into ComicBase, searched for the issues in ComicBase order: Comics with "1/7/21" in the Notes field, sorted in ComicBase order Items Where... I.[Notes] LIKE "%1/7/21%" Order By ComicTitles.AlphabetizedTitle, I.[ItemType], I.[IssueNum], I.[Variation], I.[Printing]
  8. Trying out the app for new issue entry. I have a stack. 1) Scan a barcode, wait for the buzz, issue information comes up. 2) Scroll up 3) Tap Add 4) Pop-up giving positive feedback. (I assume there is a version where it tells you if it fails?) 5) Tap Scan More 6) Black screen. Tap to turn on camera. Can we speed this up? Either add some configuration options, or add a more streamlined batch-add mode? a) For step 2, put a duplicate "Add" button at the top? Focus on the bottom of the page? Or, least liked, shrink the cover image
  9. Is the AlphabetizedTitle field still accessible to Advanced Find, as that will put the titles in the same order as in ComicBase?
  10. I agree. We have a setting for Mature Only, but not for Owned Only? While we're making suggestions, how about the option to have it display based on an Advanced Find search. Think of the flexible use... A store could display current issues, or sale issues, or... How about the option to choose between full screen single cover, collage, or both? How about the option for Full Screen Single Cover to include a caption, identifying the book, and maybe the notes?
  11. Thank you for the prompt reply, but I think you missed the subtlety of my question. The canned "Released this week" search is not simply looking for I.[CoverDate] >= "2021-01-01" and I.[CoverDate] <= "2021-01-08". The canned "Released previous week" search is not simply looking for I.[CoverDate] >= "2020-12-25" and I.[CoverDate] <= "2020-12-31". They both return issues with Cover Dates that span more than a week. They both return some issues with blank Cover Date fields. So, what are the canned searches searching on? And can it be exte
  12. Apologies if this is already in CB2021, upgrading tomorrow... When I conduct an Advanced Find, I can set the maximum returns. But, how do I know if I've hit the max or not? How do I know how many results I've found. If there is a pop-up with that information as it loads, it goes by so fast. Can a results count be shown somewhere more persistent? Also, could the "Items Where..." field be displayed to remind what has been searched?
  13. Anyone want to supply an "Order By" syntax that sorts in ComicBook Order?
