  1. You can also try to press and hold the CTRL key when starting CB. This will ask if you want to 'Recreate the database indexes?'. Click yes. This may (or may not) clean up the problem.
  2. Use the TAB delimited option instead of comma delimited. I also have issues with the Comma but the TAB delimited always works (for me).
  3. I am not saying it isn't a valid suggestion. I (and possibly the editors) may not have been sure what you had in mind. 1st appearances, deaths, etc. could be Major. I am not sure what would be considered minor, however.
  4. What would be major and minor key icons?
  5.

  6. Yes, Tales. That will teach me to try typing during a Livestream...
  7. AA and my database has title 'DC Silent Tales'. UPC is 76194137882400111. There is also a 'DC Speechless with the same UPC. 'DC Silent Tapes' has covers with 'DC Silent Tapes' My guess is that 'DC Speechless' was put when it was solicited and should probably be deleted as it appears the actual title changed to 'DC Silent Tapes'.
  8. Can you be a little clearer? What is 'Zappy Zap' (although I can make a guess)? What exactly is happening?
  9. Can you include a screen print of the report options for the Identification Labels?
  10. I don't have a label printer so I can't test this out but you might try: Start on a Title that has some issues you own. Use menu item Report->Identification Labels. In the Series to Print area, select 'Current Series' (You can select series/issues from inside the report but for testing it is easier to start from a title you have some issues in). Alternately, you can select/hi-light one or more issues you own, right-click and select Identification labels from the pop-up menu (or use F6). Below select any of the information you want on the label. In the Printer drop-down box in the top right corner, select your label writer. It should be in the list. If not that is your first problem. Next select a Label type. I am assuming the only difference between the Dymo Address and Dymo Shipping are the size (Address is about 1 inch wide while the Shipping is about 2 inches wide). Select one of them (I would start with Dymo Address). Click on the Preview button. Does this bring up a window with a representation of what the label looks like? If it does, try to print it from the preview. It is the second icon from the left in the top left corner. Did that work? If none of that worked, if you have a regular printer avaiable, can you print to a normal piece of paper (8/1/2 x 11) just to see if CB and Windows are 'talking' to each other.
  11. Sorry, forgot the cover scan info. Yes, the scan should be cropped. Any size is acceptable (greater than 300 dpi is overkill, however). It must be a *.jpg file. To name it, you the Issue number as it appears in CB EXCEPT replace any '/' with a '-' (since Windows doesn't allow the '/' in a file/directory name). Some examples: Issue # Cover_Scan file name 1 1.jpg 1/A 1-A.jpg Bk 1 Bk 1.jpg Bk 1/HC Bk 1-HC.jpg Bk 1/HC-2 Bk 1-HC-2.jpg Once you have the file name, drag/drop it in the grid area of CB (where the data is). This will place it in the correct picture folder (creating the folder for the title if it didn't exist). By default, the cover scans are stored in C drive \Users\Public\Documents\Human Computing\Pictures Inside the Pictures folder are folders named #, A through Z (27 total) which is the first letter of the Publisher (If a number it would be in the # folder). Each of these are folder with Publisher names. Each on these contain the Titles for those publishers. NOTE: the only exceptions are Dark Horse, DC, Image, and Marvel. At the time they had so many titles, that each of them has an additional set of # A through Z folder which contain Title folder names. Finally, you can change the location of the Pictures folder File-File Tools, Manage Pictures and Movies. If you do this, put in the name of the folder that CONTAINS the Pictures folder and NOT the actual Pictures folder itself.
  12. Not quite. Items->New Comic Book is used to add a new Title. What you want (unless you really have a new title not in CB) is do the following. To add a new issue you go the title, then click on the + / - button located in the Middle right-side of the window (just above the 'splitter' line separating the issue grid information for the top part of the window). See attachment 1. By default it will start with the next issue number. YOu can change any/all information. Alternately, you can select / hi-light the issue number you want to add a duplicate for, Right-Click and select Duplicate from the pop-up menu. This will bring up an issue edit window with all the information of the issue you are duplicating. Again, you can change any/all information as needed. See Attachment 2.
  13. Add new content does not work only on existing issues. You can add a new issue (with minimal information if you don't have time). This would include enough information to define or identify it (and cover scan helps). Once added, you can click on it and submit the new information. Variants are a tricky item, however. You might need to check with the editors to see if is there or how to name it (mostly this is with lettered variant (i.e. A, B. C). Yes, you can post here is you are trying to find if an issue exists but is just hard to find. If you do, include enough information to be able to identify it. Barcode, cover scan, title (cover and/or indicia), title, issue number, publisher, etc. are helpful.
  14.

  15. If your question is 'Is it in CB' the answer is no. If you have a copy, you can add it to CB and submit it for inclusion.
  16. I just received an email that the sale has been extended 1 day (midnight CT tonight).
  17. I would call support to see if they can help.
  18. Normally, it just takes a bit to sync up. However, this appears to be something missed on HC's end since it has been way past long enough to sync. Unfortunately, Pete is marked as on vacation so this may not be corrected until he gets back (Monday?).
  19. The Direct Market editions of 'Savage Avengers by Gerry Duggan Omnibus' and 'Secret Wars Omnibus' are listed as issues 1/A in both titles. Not sure what is going on with 'Absolute Swamp Thing by Len Wein & Bernie Wrightson'. There is a Title entry in CB but it has no issues under it.
  20.

  21. Try this. Go to the ComicBase website. Select My Accounts and then Profile. Scroll down to Know Databases. Remove all entries. Then go to My Account and My Comics. Remove any databases and/or Reports. Open CB. Select File->Collection Statistics. (or Press F12). After that, if you go back to the ComicBase website and My Accounts, it should just have the one database listed. If you save a report, it should be associated with that database. Finally, open the mobile app, It should only be able to find the one correct database and any reports saved for it.
  22. I am not sure why we are not communicating. The information about the price difference has been noted. This is NOT about that. What is being asked is the error you get whenever you try to use Request Price Check so it can be looked into. So, select any issues, Right-click and select Request Price Check from the pop-up menu. When you get the error, take a screen print of it and post it.
  23. What he is looking for is the error you get when you try to use 'Request Price Check'.
  24. I believe the screenshot is in regards to the error you get when trying to submit a Request for Price Check.
  25. There is a Lock Price column available for each issues. You may have to use Setup->Columns to View to display it. You can also access it by editing an issue, clicking on the 'Other' tab, and at the bottom left is a check box for 'Prevent Update from Changing Price'. Checking that 'should' do what you want. NOTE: I have never used this so I am just going by the description.
