Hey together,
I am new to ComicRack (normally I am in the Mac-Scene, but there is nothing really compatible to this fine and nice program), found the scripts to use relatively useful, and have some questions:

1.) It would be quiet interested to know, if there is a possibility, to extend the options of renaming a comic file in the given script?
For my purpose I would like to rename a comic file for example like:
Series - Volume - Number - Title
Or is there a help, how to extend this script?

2.) Is there also a possibility, that a XML file who are already in a comic file (from an other comic library manager, in my case from Comickaze) can be read in ComicRack and be used to fill out the written details of a comic?

For your help and advises I would be very glad and happy to hear

Thanks in advance

Lars :-)

For option 2 I'm sure a script could be written to extract the existing xml data and put it into ComicRack. I'm not aware of any existing functionality or scripts to do it.

Option 1 that can be handled pretty easily with Library Manager. You can also setup a custom export option with the File Renaming set to 'Caption' and then put the fields in you'd like to use. I think the following will suit your needs: [{series} ]-[ {volume} ]-[ #{number}] - [ {title}]

There's a pretty good tutorial here on the forums for new users. It goes over using library manager and other scripts. It really helps you to organize your collection the 'ComicRack way' early on.

Hey boshuda,

with the tip for the "Library Organizer", it was "gold-worth"! It save(s/d) me a bunch of time, and after figuring out, how it is working, a lovely charm!
Now I only need to find someone, who has a script, to read out the other XML-File, that I even can save more time, in case of handle almost every file again ;)

I am willing to bet you could use regex search and replace macro to convert the format of the xml from one to the other, making for a semi-automatic process rather than a manual one.

Hey jkthemac,

well, it is worth a try-and-error! ;)

Update: Me and my "big" mouth! :P
I never worked with redex, and if I try to get some informations about it, I figured out, that it will go more in the area of programming!?!?!

Nice greetings ;)
