Tens of thousands of users are using Book Collector and they all use it differently, with their own screen layout, sort settings and display styles.
Here’s a quick overview of the customization settings the program offers:
Templates and Styles
Choose your own preferred look for the Details Panel. Right click the book details panel in the bottom right of your screen, and select from multiple layouts, each in several colors and styles.
Switch between multiple layouts and resize all panels.
Use View / Layout from the menu to choose your preferred layout, then drag the panel dividers to resize all sub-panels.
Column list, Cover Thumbnails or Cover Flow
Decide how you want to browse your books, as a list with many data columns, as a wall of cover thumbnails or in the cool 3D Cover Flow. To switch, use the tabs (Windows) / buttons (Mac) above the panel.
Columns and Sort Order
For the List View, it is fully up to you which fields are visible as columns, and in which sort order (by title, by year, etc..) your books will be listed. Both can be changed using the Columns and Sort Orders button above the list.
Font Style and Size
Click menu View > Change Fonts to change the screen font to a size and style that you are comfortable with.
Customize your toolbar
When you install Book Collector, the toolbar contains buttons for the features most users use on a regular basis. But your usage of Book Collector may differ, so you may want to add other buttons there, or remove some. You can do all that by right clicking the toolbar and choosing Customize.
