Comic Collector (macOS)

v17.0.3: Added search-as-you-type to pick list fields

March 22nd, 2017

We’ve expanded the quick search box to now also allow “search-as-you-type” with suggestions for pick list fields.

How does it work?

In the quick search box top right of your screen you should see a “dropdown” button. Use this to select which field you wish to perform a search on. If “search-as-you-type” is available for that field, it will instantly work once you start typing in the box.

Example

You can now select the field “Publisher” in the quick search box, start typing a publisher name, and instantly see suggestions (based on what you typed) of publishers you have in your database. Click on a publisher to see all comics of that publisher.

Try it with the “Character” field too! Instantly filter down to all comics have that specific character in them.

V17.0.1: Major updates to the Quick Search and Image Viewer popup!

March 7th, 2017

Quick Search: Search-As-You-Type suggestions

Instantly find and select a particular series in your local database:

  • In the Quick Search box, just start typing the first few letters of the series you are looking for.
  • While typing, a drop-down list will appear, showing the first five matching series.
    (for most series, it only takes 2 or 3 letters before it shows up.)
  • Once you see the one you were looking for, use the up/down keys to select it, then hit Enter.
  • The series will now be selected in your folder panel, with the issues showing in the list panel.

NOTE: this Search-As-You-Type feature replaces the old “filter-as-you-type” behaviour of the Quick Search box. If you want to go back to the old behaviour, you can do so in the Preferences screen, on the Behaviour page using the setting called “When typing in Quick Search box”.

v16.1.1: New: “Search-As-You-Type” in Add Automatically screen

September 22nd, 2016


New: “Search-As-You-Type” suggestions when adding comics by title

If you are adding most of your comics “By Title”, then this will be a huge time-saver.

Here’s how the new “Search-As-You-Type” feature works:

  1. In the Add Comics Automatically screen, just start typing the first letters of the series title you want to add issues for.
  2. While typing, a drop-down list will appear, instantly showing the five most popular series that match,
    including the date range, the number of issues contained and a small thumbnail image.
  3. For popular series, it usually takes only 2 or 3 letters before it shows up.
    For older or less popular series, type a few more letters.
  4. Once you see your series appear, use the arrow keys to select it, then hit Enter.
  5. Then under Search Results, that exact series will be listed, with its’ issue list.
