  1. I have other programs that patch and update without this issue though. Microsoft manages it with it's products, yes?
  2. Is there any way to allow the program to update without invalidating pre-existing shortcuts? I had long ago given up pinning a shortcut to my Taskbar, because every program update required me to remake the link.
  3. Thank you. I did finally get the time to do the housekeeping on my side to upgrade to '24.
  4. As we transition to the new year, ongoing titles should be listed as running through "Present", while finished series should be listed as running through "2023" or "2024", yes? I have a support spreadsheet that recognizes series with Present to assumptively differentiate between a concluding series hole vs. an ongoing series not-yet-released future issues.
  5. Sorry, I wasn't clear. Scorched Earth was apparently corrected from initially bein dashed to properly coloned, which prompted my question about the seemingly similarly punctuated Battle Lines. Thank you.
  6. So, I updated the content, looked at the unrecognized issues and found 1 reported: Batman/Catwoman: The Gotham War—Scorched Earth I do a search in ComicBase for Batman/Catwoman, and see the following titles: Batman/Catwoman: The Gotham War: Prelude—Batman Day Special Edition Batman/Catwoman: The Gotham War: Red Hood Batman/Catwoman: The Gotham War: Scorched Earth Batman/Catwoman: The Gotham War—Battle Lines Batman/Catwoman: The Gotham War—Scorched Earth My question - Colon vs. Dash. If Scorched Earth's sub-subtitle is being prefaced by a colon, should Battle Lines as well? What about the sub-sub-subtitle for the Batman Day Special Edition?
  7. When I upgrade a version of CB, I take the time for a yearly archive and cleaning. It might not take time to install, but I do. However, having been on vacation, I have a 3-week backlog of issues to enter, and a 3-week out-of-date database to update before entering, and would really like to continue using CB2023 at the moment. I would really like to just apply the content update at the moment without doing the upgrade, which I seem to not be able to do. Holding down the Shift or Ctrl key while Checking for update does not bypass the Program update prompt.
  8. I'm not quite ready with my time to switch over to CB2024. I've been away for a few weeks, and just want to apply the content update to my current CB2023 database. Internet | Check for Updates, and I'm presented with the "Program Update Available" window, presenting 2 choices, "Update" or "Not Now". I don't wish to update, so I choose "Not Now", and... nothing. Shouldn't it proceed to the content update?
  9. Thanks, it always looks odd when the database has internal gaps.
  10. Two Livestream suggestions... 1) Re-re-re-request a tour of what it looks like from the editor's point of view when they process additions/corrections/new cover scans. 2) Demonstrations of cover attributes... Standard, wide, wraparound, gatefold, Ptych, Binding types, special covers...
  11. Dealing with names is something that is being worked on. With the recent addition of a full unicode(?) alphabet, so ability to use many foreign alphabets, diacriticals, etc, they've been working on standardizing spelling, accenting and various other multiple naming. I'm not sure if the final form is to have a in-program list of aliases backing up a single, definitive form of a name, or if that is something to be cleaned up in the mothership's editorial. Feedback is a good thing. Ideas is a good thing.
  12. Either. Keep in mind, I believe if the software is set, and attempts to download new pictures, it can notice that the directory no longer exists and will remake the directory. In other words, deleting the folder(s) doesn't prevent future pictures from being downloaded; you need to change settings to prevent any from returning.
  13. Ummm, delete them, then change settings to prevent the ongoing downloading of new images. The program is perfectly capable of operating without pictures.
