Presenting the 2nd Edition of the Organizer Handbook!

https://www.mediafire.com/?nunbg40gwu78jjn


Format: PDF

No of pages: 26

Size: 3.94 MB


This handbook will help you organize your comic books inside an alphabetical Windows Explorer folder structure, where we have a folder for each alphabet, and inside each alphabet folder, we have folders for individual series, with the publisher name in brackets.

What seems to be a fairly over-simplified way of organizing comics, turns out to be a very complex (but well-organized) system of assigning comics to folders & sub-folders.

The Resources folder (from the zip archive of this PDF) is a compilation of work from various gifted people, and it contains:
  • Smart Lists
  • Data Manager rules
  • Library organizer profiles
  • Scripts
  • Icons
  • Folder Highlighting Software

Please download the handbook and give it a read. Please point out any errors and I'll try my best to rectify them in the next update. If you dislike anything in the manual (or the whole of it), please feel free to give constructive criticism. In case you like it, do give me some good karma :)

Do you not also sort TPBs? I don't see any instructions on that.

I haven't looked through it yet, but your original Organizer helped me to clean my stuff up.

Uplinkpro, I think more information will be necessary to assist you. Exactly what are you doing when it happens, what happens (sounds like it hangs on Data Manager and doesn't return focus back to comicrack...?), are there any error messages, any log files, etc. Upload some screenshots or even a video if possible.

Dude, this guide is great. I'm not sure if I'm ready to take the plunge and reorganize in this fashion but it's really well written. I'm seriously considering applying it.

I'm having the same issue as Uplinkpro.

My trouble is with the Datamanager.processed custom field. It doesn't appear to exist, and since the smartlist is searching for information in that field, it's obviously not finding it.

I'm using Windows 10, and best as I can tell there's some kind of access issue going on where it can't add that custom field. I tried adding it manually, and it just disappears. If I find a solution, I'll post it here.
