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

March 16th, 2017

Search-As-You-Type for pick list fields

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 “Edition” in the quick search box, start typing some edition information like “special”, and instantly see suggestions (based on what you typed) of editions you have in your database. Click on an edition entry to see all games you have in that edition.

Fixes in this version

We also fixed some issues with the program in this version:

  • Images Popup:
    • “size window to picture” showed image slightly smaller
    • .tiff images were not showing
