  1. Not sure if this is your problem or not but when you use the View drop down box, Items to Show, what do you have a check mark next to? All Items, Owned Items, or Owned Items + Regular Issues? (see attached). It should be All Items (or possibly Owned Items + Regular Issues) to be able to see issues you do not own.
  2. Mark, that is what he did and it worked. But he is saying that when he shuts down the program and restarts it , the Find is 'focused' back on Death and not Title.
  3. It couldn't hurt to run File->File Tools and Optimize Database. Not sure it will help but it can't hurt.
  4. Not the way it is supposed to work. Probably have to contact support about this.
  5. One more thing. If you are downloading the Quick Start file, you will want to go into Setup->Preferences and check the box next to Automatically download larger pictures when viewing items. If you are doing the full size covers, you don't need to check this box.
  6. One thing to check is right-click on the large cover image in the top left corner and select 'Show Picture File'. This will take you to the folder containing the covers for that title. What is in there? Just the one cover or all of them? Also, did you install the pictures? They are in a separate download from the program. (or are on the install disks but you have to install them separate from the program). To download, go to your My Account on ComicBase website, Registrations and click the green arrow next to your current subscription. On the next page, you will have an option to install the Quick Start version (thumbnails initially but will download show larger cover if you select it). Or click the Other radio button to get to all the Picture Disk files (you will need to download all of them). Then, in CB, File->Install Pictures and Movies to install them.
  7. Try this. Click on the Find drop-down box next to the data entry box. If Series Name or Barcode does not have a check mark next to it, select it. If it does have a check mark, select something else, then click on the Find drop-down box again, and select Series Name or Barcode. (Some time CB thinks it is a different selection. NOTE: To replicate your results (Daredevil takes you to Spider-Girl Presents the Buzz and Dark Devil' and Actio is not found), I had to select Death.
  8. Delete or Move ALL (1-A.jpg - 1-C.jpg) From: Pictures\#\2022\Conqueror Worm, The (CEX) To: Pictures\C\Comics Experience\Conqueror Worm, The (CEX) Delete or Move 1.jpg From: Pictures\S\Scout\Sgt.

  9. Both my database and Atomic Avenue (AA) have 'Savage Avengers (2nd Series)' #4 and 5 along with 'A.X.E.: Judgment Day' (if that is the title you are referring to as I can't find a 'A.X.E. Judgement Days') #3, 4, and 5 (along with several variants). Have you run the most recent update?
  10. Unfortunately, it is not that straight forward. As an example, Company A publishes a Title with Printings 1 through 5. Then the company is bought/merged with another company, and the publisher of the book changes BUT the next book a 6th printing. If you split it into two titles, the second would 'start' with 6th Printing. However, if after the merger, the next book IS a 1st printing, then, yes, I would make two titles.
  11. I have found this to be a pretty good site for books: https://isfdb.org/cgi-bin/index.cgi I also do some searches on Amazon and Ebay to see If I can see any inside information. PS Very good series, by the way. I would have got to it eventually but i have several hundred books to get through (and I started a Z and am working backwards to A as I rearrange my bookshelves...
  12. Here is what I can find:Raymond E. Feist Prince of the Blood Type Cover Pub Printing Pages Cover Artist Price Date Publisher: Doubleday HC 18.95 8/1/1989 1st 393 Kevin Eugene Johnson HC/A 8.98 2/1/1990 SFBC 308 Kevin Eugene Johnson Science Fiction Book Club Edition; Cover Catalog Number: 15750 HC 22.00 11/1/1992 2nd 293 Don Maitez Publisher: Bantam HC 25.00 7/1/2004 1st * 356 Liz Kenyon MMPB 7.99 7/1/2005 1st 432 Liz Kenyon MMPB 4.95 6/1/1990 1st 396 Kevin Eugene Johnson MMPB 5.99 1/1/1994 5th 351 Don Maitz *I don't have information about 1st printing but I assume it is. you have the book and could tell better Personally, I would create 3 separate titles: Title: Prince of the Blood (Doubleday) Publisher: Doubleday HC 1st HC/A SFBC Title: Prince of the Blood (Bantam) Publisher: Bantam MMPB 1st MMPB 5th (there are 2nd - 4th printings but I don't have information on them) Title: Prince of the Blood 15th Anniversary Edition (Bantam) Publisher: Bantam HC 1st MMPB 1st When you start having different publishers and different printings, it can get messy and you may box yourself into a corner later. It is easier (and less prone to problems) to have the separate titles.
  13. Sorry, I meant to end sentences. they are valid in Name.
  14. Okay. I will look into this and get back with you. However, for the 2nd printing, the Published by Bantam should be in the Notes. (Also, I doubt it is an actual 2nd printing but we will see). And I would suggest not to use periods (they can give the system problems at times).
  15. Can you supply the titles? They may need to be in two different titles. I can do a little searching with the Titles and Publisher (and any other information like Printings and dates.
