v8.9: Easier access to Manage Pick Lists tool

October 25th, 2023

If you have been active in our CLZ Comics group on Facebook, you are probably aware that many questions in the group can be answered with:

“Just use Manage Pick Lists”

Renaming Storage Boxes, Merging duplicate Series, fixing series sort problems, fixing typos in creator names, etc… it is all done in the Manage Pick Lists screen. An important and powerful screen, but… not so easy to find if you don’t know where to look or don’t even know what to look for.

With this update, we are trying to fix all that. We have made the screen much more accessible / discoverable AND we have made several improvements to the MPL screen itself.

Direct access to MPL from the main screen folder list

In every folder list in main screen (Series, Storage Boxes, Creators, Grades, etc…) there is now a new MPL icon at the top right, in the counter bar. Tapping the icon will take you straight to the Manage Pick Lists screen, of course with the applicable list already selected. For example, if you are in a Series list in the main screen, the button will take you to the Manage Series List directly.

Built-in MPL functionality when selecting a pick list entry

When editing a pick list field in the Edit screen, a Select screen pops up. E.g. when tapping the Storage Box field, a screen pops up showing you all existing Storage Box entries to select from.
We added a new “Manage …” button there that takes you straight to the Manage Pick Lists functionality for that list. So that you can fix a typo, merge duplicate entries, etc…

Improved Manage Pick Lists screen

While we were at it, we decide to implement two improvements for the Manage Pick Lists screen itself:

Now allows removing entries

The MPL screen now allows the removal of entries, using the “X” icons on the right. You can use it to remove unused entries (with a “0” use count).
But… you can now also remove entries that are still in use. If you do, it will automatically remove the entry from the affected comics. Of course, the comics themselves will not be removed.

Better Merge Mode

The Merge tool is now easier to find (big “Merge Mode” button top right) AND has been improved to make it clearer and easier to use. Just checkbox the entries you want to merge, tap the Merge button on the bottom right, then select the entry you want to merge TO, that is, the one you want to keep.
