Smart list to identify comics with duplicate CVDB 1 year 4 weeks ago #46323

Hi Everyone, Is there a way to create a smart list that only shows comics that have the same CVDB number in the Tags field? I'm going through my collection to replace older scans with the newer ones coming out but have identified an issue where the duplicates option in the Views is not identifying duplicate comics where the only difference is one has Limited Series in Format field, while the other one does not. If I update the format so that they both show Limited Series then the default duplicate option sees and display's them.

personally I would use the SameXDifferentY script (becausae its pretty useful for other things) and not use a Y:



But it does rely on your library having been scraped since the scraper has been using the custom value (quite a while now of course).

Awesome! Now I see more results show up using that script.

On a side note, where is this comicvine_issue value stored? I didn't see it in the xml file inside the comic nor do I see that value in the Info dialog box. Is there a location that we can view all available values that can be used for smart lists?

Make sure you have 'Preferences / Behaviour / Show Custom Book Fields' ticked.
You can then use them just like any field. You can also add what you want.

Thanks for the clarification on that. I thought I had that option turned on,on my laptop but apparently did not.
