Another query related to a currently ignored section in The ComicRack Manual

I understand that to set a bookmark, you right-click any open page and set a bookmark. This would be needed when you have to quit reading an eComic in between, so you bookmark it and next time you can easily access it.



Now, there are a few facts that I yet have to understand. Maybe users who often use the bookmarks feature can help me out..
Why would one need lots of bookmarks in a file ? And why would one need to go to next or previous bookmarks ?

Why would one like to 'name' a bookmark ?

Is it so essential to have options to remove selected bookmarks ?

A feature request (or do we already have this..?):

We need to open an eComic to access its bookmarks. Doesn't this defeat the purpose of bookmarks ? Wouldn't it be better if we had a menu (like the one found in the Comix software) from which we could see all currently bookmarked eComics ?


I know we can make a smartlists for bookmarks, but still, technically, its a workaround, isn't it ?

you can make a smartlist to view all bookmarked comics.

you can edit bookmarks from within the Comic Book Dialog (no need to open the comic).

I use bookmarks as chapter jump points. If you combine multiple comics to one with export, the beginning of each comics is marked with a bookmark.

I use it to mark backup features (or second-third-fourth-etc stories in Annuals or King-Size or what have you)

I use it as a chapter marks, especially when I have volume consisting of oneshot stories. BTW: quick search can also search for Bookmarks names so it's helpful to find exact bookmark. And on the Pages tab (both - inside Info dialog, and in the Browser) you can group by Bookmarks so it looks clear.

Sometimes I bookmark a page worth remembering, for example with great artwork.

Oh, a little bug:
open a file with few bookmarks. then compare: Tool button -> Bookmarks and Main Menu -> Edit -> Bookmarks. Bookmarks names aren't displayed on the second one.


And I have one request:
to be able to go to the specific Bookmark from file's right click menu in the browser list. If this could handle Stacks it would be a nice bonus. You could view a lot of bookmarks from many files at once. But even for singe file it's still going to be useful - to quickly check bookmarks in the file.

"BTW: quick search can also search for Bookmarks names so it's helpful to find exact bookmark."

Hm, I tried this and it doesn't work now.
Okay, this was 3 years ago, so it's an old feature, but can we get it back? :)

I keep my collection of homebrewing magazines and a few tech magazines on Comicrack and use book marks to mark certain articles or recipes. I would also like to be able to search for them. Is there maybe a Python script that I could copy to a smartlist as a template and just swap out the name of the bookmark in it?
