The fileless improvements are no doubt the ones that will work best for me, as well as the new touch features on my new netvertible.
I'm baaaaaaaaaaaaaaack!!

:) cYo answers our requests, and gives us these awesome features. Bless him !


Here are 3 of my fileless comics looking good with the thumbnails on :


I downloaded the images (for thumbnails ) from google, saved them into the fileless entries, and deleted them from the system. Still, the thumbnails are there in ComicRack. This is good. B)

:angry: Why ? I was so used to double-clicking to go into fullscreen, now it zooms in/out.
Any way of reverting back double-click for fullscreen ?

What I didn't understand

No clue what these 2 mean ? :unsure:

The new book series (a great feature) also has something to explain. Auflage ? :huh:




Overall, 0.9.129 turns out to be an essential release..!!
All praise cYo and give him a big karma boost !

When optimizing to tablet pc I came to the conclusion that I often used the quick zoom but seldom switched between fullscreen and windows mode. So I changed the default.
Just go into preferences/reader/keyboard and map the fullscreen to double click again.

Next version will include the option to save/load keyboard layouts.
In the next days I'll also post a short review of my new tablet pc and some videos.

Open the navigation overlay (the one at the bottom) and make a mouse drag in the thumbnails area.
2nd is just a technicality when displaying rating menus for fractional ratings.

Some german slipped in. You can fix it in NewBook.py. Also Auflage is in this context Volume.

cYo, I want to thank you for your last few updates! Especially the optimizing you've done with SmartLists. Lists that used to take forever to load now take no longer than any others to load. I'm nuts with the lists so I appreciate your efforts :cheer: .

I also really love the web related work, like the info panel and the link tag. Nice to be able to open right to the ComicVine page. Any chance you'll have the wiki open there in the future, and maybe add the ability to add more than one page?

Hey, let's bug you for more tags ;) ! There are two left that you haven't added from ComicVine yet: "Concepts" & "Objects". Would you consider adding these?

Thanks again for all your great work!

@ Perezmu - Could you check your PMs? I sent you one a while ago I was keen for you to read.
... The failure to appreciate... is perfectly understandable, because the readership never evaluates old material in the context of the cultural climate in which it was created, or the state of the art at the time it was created.

cYo, is this scriptable? I was wondering this regarding the ComicVine script.

@Alan: Sorry, I always forget about the PMs, I'll check now!!!!

Cheers! :woohoo:

Awesome work, especially the custom thumbnails.
I have my full library on a network disc and loading the thumbnails takes a while sometimes. I assume I can now put the first page of every comic on the local disk and use those as thumbnails.

Hmm, sounds like I really need to refresh my python knowledge (read a book about it once, but never actually developed anything in python yet).

Studytime :cheer:

Edit:

Hmm, I can't even seem to work out where that thumbnail button is or from where to where to drag and drop. Maybe I'm completely missing the point, but what ARE file-less comics??? missing?

Edited again:

Hmm, finally figured it out. I should have read other forums before posting. Looks like what I want is still not possible :( Maybe one day
Just madly collecting (dutch) comics
