Movie Collector (Windows)

v20.6 Easier access to the Manage Pick Lists screen

August 25th, 2020

The Manage Pick Lists screen is one of the most important screens of your Movie Collector software. This is the screen you need for:

  • Merging duplicate actor entries
  • Correct a Director sort name
  • Fixing typos in Genres, Tags, Locations, etc…
  • Removing unused pick list entries
  • etc… etc…

But… judging from daily questions in our support channels, many users don’t even know of its existence. (Hint: it can be opened from the Edit menu). So with today’s update we are aiming to increase the awareness the Manage Pick Lists screen and to make it easier to access from anywhere.

From the main screen folder panel

In the main screen, you can now easily access the Manage Pick Lists screen for the selected folder field. Just click the new button right above the folder panel:

From the Edit Movie screen

The Edit Movie screen now has a big Manage [..] List button at the bottom, that automatically changes to match the field you are currently at:

From the Add/Edit item screen

Fixed:

  • User Defined Yes/No fields are now available as options for the folder panel.
  • Edit Multiple: Updating date fields wasn’t always working correctly if you only filled in a year.
  • Edit in List: Editing the Collection Status field did not work.
  • Folder panel: “Collection Status” folder option has been moved to “Personal” heading.
  • Movie files: Episodes wouldn’t play if % was in the file path.
