I am trying to create a smartlist that will function as an automatic pull list for my comics that I read monthly. Here is what I came up with to start.

The problem is that I have so many comics that it hangs Comicrack for several minutes while it is searching. Is there a more elegant solution to this?[img]

Create a folder and put for every series a smartlist in it.
Create a smartlist based on this folder and add the read percentage criteria.
Adding/removing lists from this folder will also effect the pull list without editing anything.

That seems to have done the trick. Good solution. Thanks, cYo.

On a side note: There's a huge performance issue in the current ComicRack Build (.125) concerning complex smart lists.

As I've never used big smart lists (I use a different method - see above), I did not catch it earlier. Running complex smart lists (like the one from the first post) lead to a n^2 performance degradation, meaning with a rather large database each additional smart list criteria will add lots of computation time. I rewrote the stuff now and I'm back at almost n (meaning you can throw huge smart lists at the database without any noticeable slow down).

Fix is in the next release.
