Not sure if this is a bug or if it was designed this way. I have 2 books in my collection that are exactly the same except one has a format listed as Weekly the other does not. even tho these books are the same they do not show in the duplicates view. if i remove the "Weekly" format then they show up in the duplicates view.

Pretty sure that is by design.

It can be frustrating, to be sure. I removed (most) of those types of duplicates by stripping the format off of the books, checking for duplicates, then running Data Manager on my entire collection. Now I run Data Manager as part of every scrape (per The Organizer tutorial thread on here) and I rarely have that problem. It usually crops up when a book has a year guessed from the file name, but the original doesn't. This happens so infrequently that I now manually compare those and it forces me to manually check/clean up series in a semi-random fashion.

I have a notion of creating a script to create a duplicates list based on CVDB entries, but I fear the running time would be astronomical. Maybe if it first sorted by CVDB series, then only compared the entries in each series to one another, that could help. :unsure: It might also keep a sorted list of all cvdb entries, then compare all new scrapes to it for future speediness. I lack the time to properly implement one. If someone else has created one and is keeping it secret please release it into the wild.
