  1. Currently, you can't. Last I heard, there was a technical reason (something about size of data being transmitted). I hope this is being looked into as it was useful before but really needed now that items are moving between Comic Books, Books, and Magazines.
  2. Using v3418 I seem to have the same problem. Collection Report Click Selected Title. Click Choose... Click All Titles. Highlight all Titles and click OK (59, 498 chosen) Click List Only Wanted Items. Click Preview Nothing is found. If I use Find->Issue Item Wanted, All the items with Wanted Checked are found.
  3. There is a little bit of a trick when the Title you are entering is so close it brings up an existing Title. This should work: Start to add a New Magazine. Type Title as Monsterscene then press the space bar once followed by the backspace (this de-selects the Aurora Monster Scenes title that was high-lighted). Click OK You should now have a Title entry window for Monsterscene. Continue to fill in the information for the Title (at least Publisher) and continue to the Issue entry window.
  4. Something to keep in mind, is that you renewal ADDs to your subscription end date. For example: Your subscription ends on 1 Dec 2020. If a Sale comes up on, say 1 July 2020, you can renew at that time ( 6 months before it expires) and your subscription will then end on 1 Dec 2021 (1 year from the end of your subscription and NOT 1 year from purchase date. i.e. it doesn't overlap). So if a sale comes around but you still have a month or two (or six...) go ahead and take advantage of the sale as you aren't losing any of your subscription time.
  5. All three are listed under Books in my database, also.

  7. Not sure if this helps or not but I just downloaded the most recent version (v3418 for the Archive Edition) and when I display Grading Sets (on my 4k monitor), the check boxes show up.
  8. Here is a list of most (if not all) of the remaining prose books published by Moonstone that are currently in CB as Comic Books: Domino Lady: Sex as a Weapon The Kolchak Papers Kolchak: The Lost World Kolchak the Night Stalker Casebook Kolchak: The Night Stalker Chronicles Kolchak the Night Stalker: The Lovecraftian Horror Vampires: Dracula & Undead Legions (actual name is Vampires: Dracula & the Undead Legions) Werewolves: Dead Moon Rising More Tales of Zorro
  9. Thanks for the clarification. I should have been more specific.
  10. There is a difference between what the people at HC can write (no limitation) and what we (the end user) can write or do. The reports are made of of 'canned' SQL with a limited amount of modification supplied by the check boxes. Getting Counts with full access to the database with SQL is possible (and pretty easy). However, because of limitations, we can't write the SQL that would allow the type of counts you want (inside CB).
  11. I believe all the signed issues in CB have a COA (Certificate of Authenticity). This normally comes when you buy the signed issue from a company that supplies it at the time of the sale. For the randomly signed issues (i.e. someone took issues to a convention and an artist just signed it without any COA), they are not supposed to be entered into CB. There may be some service you can send you issue to and have them verify (and issue a COA?) but I don't know of any.
  12. Since every issue in CB is assigned a unique identifying number, there is no way to do any kind of count function in CB. The only way I can imagine doing this is to export your data (if you have and Edition of CB that allows exporting) and put it into a database (Access, SQL, etc) or possibly a Spreadsheet and do the count functionality outside of CB.
  13. CB has Title "The Templar" (Checker, 1998). The actual Title appears to be "Templar" as shown at Amazon at https://www.amazon.com/Templar-No-1-Mark-Thompson/dp/B005YCZCR0 MyComicShop also has it as just Templar (but with a 2007 date for some reason) at: https://www.mycomicshop.com/search?TID=412311
  14. CB "Title Shining Beacon" (Idea + Design Works, 2019) appears to actually have the Title "A Shining Beacon" as shown at Amazon here https://www.amazon.com/Shining-Beacon-James-Albon/dp/1603094458 It has the same ISBN-10 number.

  16. Transformers Collector's Club is more of a magazine than comic book. While it does have a couple of short comic stories (about 7 pages each), it is mostly articles/interviews.
  17. I remember that, too, but that was a long time ago. It was removed once weekly updates became a thing (since it would always replace missing Titles).
  18. FYI The words Free Comic Book Day 2009 appears in the Notes of 38 of the issues for 2009. Not sure if that is all or not but it seems like it. HC tries to add this to all the Free Comic Book Day issues (but I won't guarantee it).
  19. A decision was made to drop things like Publication and Comics (to name a few), from the publisher name, so K.K. Publications is in CB as K.K. and Pacific Comics is just Pacific. I am not saying I agree or disagree with this decision but it has been this way for a very long time and I doubt it will be changing. PS I see several covers with Gold Key on the cover but with publisher of K.K. so you would probably enter it with K.K. as the publisher.
  20. Delete or Move All (1.jpg - 5.jpg) From: Pictures\M\Marvel\G\Gamerverse Spider-Man- Velocity To:Pictures\M\Marvel\M\Marvel's Spider-Man- Velocity Delete or Move 1.jpg From: Pictures\G\Gemstone\Mickey Mouse and Blotman To: Pictures\G\Gemstone\Walt Disney's Mickey Mouse and Blotman in Blotman Returns Rename 1.jpg to TPB 1.jpg From: Pictures\M\Moonstone\Tales of Zorro Rename 1.jpg to TPB.jpg From: Pictures\M\Marvel\W\World of Reading- This Is Thor Rename TPB 4.jpg to TPB.jpg From: Pictures\R\Random House\DC Super Friends- Wonder Woman to the Rescue!
  21. I think this would be an important change to CB and probably should have been added a long time ago. Since CB can be marked to any age group, having the Mature titles always visible is sure to have caused problems (and possible lost sales). However, I am not sure you can just use the current 'Marked as Mature' title check box to do the filtering. Some Titles are more 'mature' than others. Using movie ratings, There are X, R, NC-17, and PG-13 Mature levels. Some people don't want and X rated Titles but would be find with R and under. Others won't want anything over PG-13. I am not suggesting having so many levels, just pointing out there are different extremes. Maybe two levels (X type and Not X type) would give enough flexibility. Another possibility, is having the user control what is acceptable and what is not by checking a box at the Title level. But then you would probably need a password protected Parental Control feature to prevent 'kids' from changing the setting. One possible problem with this approach would be how you would uncheck a Title since, once checked, it would no longer be available. Also not sure if Cover Scans for the Hidden/Deleted mature titles would be deleted and unavailable (outside of CB).
  22. The cover scan for Syncopated #1 is incorrect. It is a duplicate of #2. Unfortunately, I don't have a scan to replace it.
  23. I don't have this but from the looks, it appears it should be in Magazines.
  24. Tales of Zorro (Moonstone 2008) is anthology of 17 text stories (with illustrations) and should be moved to Books. You can see a little about them (which is Soft cover and which are Hard cover here: http://moonstonebooks.com/shop/category.aspx?catid=41
  25. Make sure you click on the far left column to select the row( s ) before you right click.
