found the following one:
Richer access to secondary shared storage devices

In KitKat we introduced APIs that let apps read/write file in app-specific directories on secondary storage devices, such as SD cards.

We heard loud and clear that developers wanted richer access beyond these directories, so in Lollipop we added the new ACTION_OPEN_DOCUMENT_TREE intent. Apps can launch this intent to pick and return a directory from any supported DocumentProvider, including any of the shared storage supported by the device. Apps can then create, update, and delete files and directories anywhere under the picked tree without any additional user interaction. Just like the other document intents, apps can persist this access across reboots.

This gives apps broad, powerful access to manage files while still involving the user in the initial selection process. Users may choose to give your app access to a narrow directory like “My Vacation Photos,” or they could pick the top-level of an entire SD card; the choice is theirs.

So is it possible to change to code for this so that we are able to use ComicRack also with Android 5.x?

I have no issue using it with 5.xx. I have my external SD card set as my main folder and everything syncs to the external card.

Edit: Using stock 5.0.2, non-rooted AT&T Note 3.

That could just mean Samsung added it themseleves. Using a vanilla or aosp device won't allow SD writing without root and a work around.

Yeah, Samsung isn't a very good example to use. They always add a LOT of stuff to their firmwares & the ability to write to SD cards against Google's wishes is often one of the tweaks they make.

I think this topic is a non-issue. The OP wanted ComicRack for Android to be updated so it would be able to access the SD card & everyone in the thread has replied that it already does work correctly under Android 5.x.

Just use the "Home" button in the Folder selection preferences. Select the folder on your SD Card.
Should work fine.
