Book Collector (macOS)

v20.3: More fields now sync to CLZ Cloud / Book Connect

March 24th, 2021

A small update to the Book Collector for Mac software today, just to help you make the switch to the Book Connect web-based software.

We have received feedback from Book Collector users that they were missing some field in Book Connect / Cloud, so a few days ago we updated Connect to add many of those requested fields.

Check out some screenshot here!

The new fields that were added:

  • Editor
  • Translator
  • Photographer
  • Printed by
  • Printing
  • First Edition (yes/no)
  • Paper type
  • AND: web-site links on the new Links tab!

Of course, the new fields now being available in Book Connect is of little help to you if you cannot sync your existing data from your Book Collector for Mac software.

So… even though we announced “no more Mac updates”, we decided to do one FINAL v20.3 update of the Book Collector for Mac software, to add support for the syncing of the new fields.

I hope this update will help you make the big switch to Book Connect!
