v18.4.2: More images now available in Find Cover screen

September 18th, 2018

We received reports that the Find Cover screen was giving quite a few “image could not be loaded” errors lately, and we’ve found an issue in the program that caused this. We’ve fixed this and you should be able to load almost any image you find now.

We also changed some background code in the Add, Edit and Main screens to make the program more stable.

Improved:

  • Find Cover screen: now allows more images to be shown and downloaded

Fixed:

  • Stability: We fixed a couple of Access Violation errors that could pop up
  • Add screen: Fixed a false “Barcode already in queue” error
  • Add screen: “Change Cover” could break the preview panel
  • Edit Screen: Year dropdown for dates would scroll all the way to the top, now uses current year
  • Edit Screen: Date Pickers would sometimes not be able to pick today’s date if next/previous was used
  • Edit Screen: User Defined Fields: Date Picker button was in the wrong place
  • Sync with CLZ Cloud: Fixed syncing issues if the currency of Windows was set to something with a period (such as “kr.”)

v18.3.1: Updated “Add Books from CLZ Core” screen

September 18th, 2018

The Add Books Automatically screen is now called “Add Books from CLZ Core” and includes improvements to make it both easier-to-use and easier-on-the-eye:

  • Single Search Box: Just one box for search (e.g. like Google or Amazon). No more separate Author and Title boxes. Just enter (part of) the author’s name and (part of) the title and you will get the best matching results. (see the screen shot above with “crichton jurassic” results”).
  • Big blue buttons for the main actions, Searching and Adding, can’t miss ’em 🙂
  • Automatic Preview, just select a result (no more need for double clicking)
  • Use the popup in the “Add” button to change it to add to “Collection” or “Wish List”
  • Search by Publisher and Year: Getting a lot of results? Filter down to the book edition you’re looking for by adding the publisher and/or publication year to your search! (see screen shot below)

    v18.3.1: New: Automatically add multi-movie box-sets

    August 9th, 2018

    New: Automatically add multi-movie box sets:

    During 2017, our content managers worked for months to enhance our Core online movie database with movie list information for thousands of multi-movie box sets.

    As of today, Movie Collector for macOS can use this new Core data: Just use the enhanced Add Movies screen to find a box set, either by title or by barcode, and our Core “knows” which movies are in the box.

    See it in action:

    Find and add box sets by barcode

    Scan a box-set barcode and Core will show you which movies it contains. Click “Add movie” at the bottom right and all contained movies will be added to your database, automatically linked by a box set entry.

    Find and add box sets by title

    Alternatively, use the Title tab and enable the new Box Set search to find box sets by their title.

    Note: the new Movies, TV Series and Box Sets switches now let you search each of these three Core section separately OR combined.
    AND: The switches also operate on the Search-As-You-Type suggestions, for even quicker searching and adding!

    New box set panel on movie details page, with movie list!

    A nice new box set panel at the top of the movie details for each of the contained movies. Now showing the list of the contained movies, in the correct order, AND with clickable links to go straight to the other movies in the set!

    Change the order of movies in a box set

    At the bottom of the list of movies you will find a link to “change order of movies…” to modify the order in which the movies are displayed in the details page.

    New in the Add Movies from CLZ Core screen:

    The Add Movies Automatically screen is now called “Add Movies from CLZ Core” and it includes quite a few improvements to make it both easier-to-use and easier-on-the-eye:

    • Big blue buttons for the main actions, Searching and Adding, can’t miss ’em 🙂
    • Checkboxes to turn on Movies, TV Series and/or Box Set searching
    • Automatic Preview, just select a result (no more need for double clicking)
    • Use the popup in the “Add” button to change it to add to “Collection” or “Wish List”

    New: Movies vs TV Series

    You can find a new “Is TV Series” checkbox in your Edit Movie screen. If you folder on this field you will get a “Yes” and “No” folder, so you can quickly split your collection into TV Series and Movies!

    Click the folder dropdown to select or create your “Is TV Series” setting:

    Add Comics is now a pop-up screen

    April 13th, 2018

    A small user interface tweak today:
    The Add Comics screen is now a pop-up screen that lays over your comic list.
    (previously it was a separate full screen page)

    Looks cooler, feels more “snappy” and while adding comics, you can actually see the new additions appear in your comic list in the background!
