  1. Are you trying to drop it in the large cover display area in the top left corner? If you are, that is no longer the correct location,. Instead, drop anywhere in the Grid area (it doesn't have to be on the specific Item #, just anywhere in the grid.
  2. I have CB 2021 4K Archive v21.0.0.1218 (I believe the previous version was 1200 and it also had the problem). PS I just booted up my other test computer that has CB 2021 v1013 and it also has the problem with Jump not working with anything but integers.
  3. Herb, you shouldn't have to run the System Restore. Just Uninstall CB. (Not saying System Restore is a bad idea but, it is kind of a sledgehammer option (but sometimes you DO need a sledgehammer...)). However, with CB 2020 installed, you should be able to Check for Updates and get CB 2021 installed (can't recall if you need to download/install or if the install starts up automatically).
  4. Hmm. My 'What's New' had all the updates I mentioned. You can try to rerun the download. Just hold down the SHIFT key when you select Check for Updates. Possibly, you got the update before it was completely posted.
  5. Not sure what Prices is referring to. However, the report for Gainers and Losers had information, so I think some sort of Price got updated for the comparison.

  7. I just downloaded the update and seem to have gotten everything (New, Updated, and Deleted Titles along with Covers).
  8. Mark, I think Craig is referring to the Install time (not the download time).
  9. Mark, I have the same problem as Brad. F3 Jump with CB 2021 doesn't seem to work. I am using Spider-Man issue 80/A as a test. If I just type 80 it works to Item #80. But if I type 80/A, it just beeps and doesn't do anything.
  10. It takes a little bit to complete (I didn't time it) but I had no problems. Downloaded the5 (or 6) files to the same folder, in CB, selected Install Pictures and Movies, pointed to the Pictures.zip.001 file and it completed the task.
  11. I can't help you but can you provide a little more information? Which ComicBase are you using? CB 2020, or CB 2021 (or something different)
  12. I downloaded them from that site and installed with out any apparent problems. MediaFire appears to be a legitimate File Share and Storage site.
  13. John, I don't use this feature so I am not sure if this will help or not. If you want to 'not process' what you have on the phone, one thing you might do is create another 'dummy' database (change the Theme so it is obvious it is not your actual database). Then, with the dummy database open, import/process the items on the phone into this dummy database. This should (theoretically) process/clear the items. Then close that database and open your real one.
  14. Download and install the newest build v1172 and that should fix the problem.
  15. Also, the 'play button' icon doesn't show up next to the Item #. I had the same problem as Robert. I reset the Pictures and Media folders to the default then changed them to my location. At that point, even though the 'play button' doesn't appear, clicking on the box, executed the play option.
  16. As a temporary work-around you can manually create the folders. C:\Users\<your-logon-id>\Documents\Human Computing\ComicBase 2021 Archive Edition\Log Files Not sure why this folder path wasn't create in the install as it appeared to work in beta.
  17. Using CB 2021, when running the Wanted List report, there is a check box to Exclude Owned Items. If you Uncheck this box, the Owned Items should show up (they did for me).
  18. First, you can't connect to the ComicBase Database. It is locked. Depending on the edition of ComicBase you have, you can export some of the data (Publisher isn't part of the Export process) to a CSV file that can be imported to another database. You can get Publisher (and Title) with a Find using Title Field Publisher Is Greater Than <space> (just press the space bar once). Once you have that, you can Select ALL (CTRL+A), copy from CB then paste into another program (Notpad, Excel, etc.) to get a Tab-separated list that can be imported into your database, then joined to the Exported Issue information to get a more complete record. If you have the Archive Edition, there is an Advanced Search that lest you do some SQL queries. It is not a full-blown SQL interface but you can do some things.
  19. Delete or Move 1.jpg & 1-A.jpg From: Pictures\D\DC\D\Dark Nights- Death Metal- Infinite Hour Exxxtreme! To: Pictures\D\DC\D\Dark Nights- Death Metal Infinite Hour Exxxtreme! Delete 28.jpg From: Pictures\D\DC\T\Terrifics, The NOTE: If you ran the update before the 4:35:29 PM version, you might want to run it again as the first update (around 11:00) renamed a bunch of Books Item #'s that it shouldn't have. The Second update corrected this.
  20. It looks like the series had issue #3 published also, as Amazon has one for sale, at this time (only 1 left...) https://www.amazon.com/Industriacide-Broken-Tree-comic-book/dp/B076614V5J The Series was published in 2002 all with cover price of 2.95. The TPB collection, was published in 2004 with a street date of 2/18/2004 and a cover price of 11.99.
  21. I caught that one the other day and corrected it to Mar already. By the way, it isn't hard to submit corrections, if you want to. Just make the correction, and, with the Item # selected (highlighted), Right-Click to bring up the pop-up menu. At the bottom is a Submit New or Corrected Data option. Choose that and it will be sent in. PS, you can select/send multiple items #'s at the same time (as long as you can select them all at one time).
  22. 1 & 2) These are more examples where the last of the two months in the indicia should have been in CB (as that is what matches the cover). I submitted corrections 3 & 4) When a comic went to a Direct Market seller (local comic book store), the barcode was removed/replaced by text or a picture). The comics that went to Newsstands kept the barcode. The difference had to do with returns. Newsstands got less of a discount on the comics but they could return unsold ones. Direct Market sellers got a much larger discount BUT they could NOT return them. At this time CB does not track Newsstand / Direct Market editions separately. They are considered the same issue.
  23. For my Archive edition, the default location is Documents->Human Computing->ComicBase 2020 Archive Edition. or C:\Users\<your-logon-name>\Documents\Human Computing\ComicBase 2020 Archive Edition\Log Files
  24. It looks like the current #1 listed in "High Caliber" should be in a different (new) Title called "High Caliber Anthology of Original Visions" (or possibly "High Caliber: An Anthology of Original Visions") published by Caliber in 1994. You can see the book (especially back cover with price of 9.95) at eBay at: https://www.ebay.com/itm/High-Caliber-Anthology-of-Original-Visions-Caliber-Comics-1994-/223855257086 PS the Years published for "High Caliber" should also be changed from 1994-1997 to just 1997 as the Book (which doesn't belong here) was the reason for the 1994 date.
