After adding some books to your database, it’s time to start editing your entries to add personal information (like purchase details, your own ratings and notes, etc…) or to edit the automatically downloaded data to your own preferences.

This is done in the app’s Edit Book screen.

Opening the Edit Book screen

Here’s how to get to the Edit Book screen:

  1. Tap the book you wish to edit
  2. Tap the Edit Book button:

Making changes in the Edit Book screen

In the Edit Book screen you can:

  • edit the information that was automatically downloaded from our Core online database, e.g.
    • Title
    • Release year
    • Format
    • Genres
    • etc…
  • add personal information, like
    • Purchase date, store and price
    • your personal rating
    • personal notes
    • owner info
    • etc…
    • change the cover image

Most fields can be directly typed in (like Title, Notes), other fields open a pick list screen for easy picking of a new value without typing (like Genre, Format, etc..).

When you’re done making changes, tap the Done button at the top right to save the changes to the database and return to the main screen.

Multi/Single pick list fields

Multi/Single pick list fields are the fields that open a pick list screen for easy picking. They have a couple of buttons associated with them and it is important to know what they all do:

  • Removes the format from that book entry.
  • Edits that value for all books that have this value. Be careful: This affects all { that use this format.
  • Adds a value for that book entry. It opens up a pick list screen for easy picking of a new value without typing. Pick one from the list, or tap the + button to add a new format to your format list. You can manage this pick list using the Manage Pick List screen.
