v16.4.1: New: “Search-As-You-Type” suggestions when adding comics by title

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.

Important: this is an *extra* tool, that makes it easier and faster to add popular series.
Just hit Enter or choose “Show all results for “..” to see the full search results.

Faster and better results when searching series By Title

Next to the new Search-As-You-Type system, we have also improved the “normal” By Title search engine:

  • Super-fast results for your searches (almost instant).
  • Cleaner, more focused results, less fuzzy. For example, where previously a search for “batman rebirth” would show all series that would contain “batman” OR “rebirth” in their name, the results now just show series that contain BOTH words.
  • The order of the results is weighted by popularity. A search for “amazing spider-man” will give you the main volumes at the top, with less popular series further down below.

Fixed:

  • Add Comics Automatically / Queue Mode: results would disappear right after searching a barcode.
