v17.1.2: Now compatible with macOS 10.13 “High Sierra”

September 21st, 2017

Next week, Apple will release the new macOS 10.13 “High Sierra”.
If you are planning to update your Mac to this new OS, then we strongly recommend to update your Book Collector software to today’s version 17.0.5!

Book Collector problems on High Sierra:
We have been testing our software on beta versions of High Sierra for quite a while, to make sure we were ready for it’s release. We found that most of the software seems to be working as normal.

Unfortunately, we found a big problem in the Preferences screen, it does not open at all anymore, making it impossible to make any changes to program settings.

Luckily, our Mac developer Ronald was able to fix the Preferences screen to make it work on the new macOS. A fix was released today, in version 17.1.2.

Fixed

  • Preferences screen didn’t load properly on macOS 10.13 “High Sierra”.
  • Upload Cover to CLZ Core: Images were not always uploaded properly even if they were within the 500KB file size limit.
  • Main Screen: Quick Search: Occasional crashes in the quick search when using the “Search-as-you-type” suggestions.
  • Sync with CLZ Cloud: Sometimes crashed during the upload of covers.

Movie Connect

Improved search results, plus Search-As-You-Type suggestions

September 7th, 2017

A nice upgrade for the search feature today, in both Movie Connect and the free CLZ Cloud viewer for movie collections!

We have completely replaced the search engine, making the searches much faster and giving you better, more focussed, less “fuzzy” search results.

On top of that, we have now added our popular “Search-As-You-Type” mechanism to the search box for quick finding and selecting a particular movie in your database:

  • In the Quick Search box, just start typing the first few letters of the title you are looking for.
  • While typing, a drop-down list will appear, showing the first five matching movies, with small cover images.
    (for most movies, it only takes 2 or 3 letters before it shows up.)
  • Once you see the one you were looking for, use the up/down keys to select it, then hit Enter.
  • This will instantly take you the movie details page for that movie.

See the Search-As-You-Type system in action:

v.4.5.8: Added loan fields to the CLZ Cloud sync

August 29th, 2017

This update converts your database

In order for this update to work, your database has to be converted once. This happens automatically after starting the app for the first time after updating and can take a couple of minutes depending on the size of your database (amount of books) and the speed of your iPhone or iPad. This could take a couple of minutes on slower devices or with very large databases (5000 or more books).

New:

  • CLZ Cloud syncing: Added loan fields to the sync.
  • Edit Book: Autocorrect now works on the plot and notes fields.
  • New folder option: You can now group your books by reading year. To do this, tap the menu button top right, then “Folders”, then tap “Reading Year”.

Coming up:

  • A loan manager to loan and return books.
