Hi, I'm a noob at ComicRack. I just started using it about a week ago after using Comical for the past year and a half. Anyway, I love all the features of Comicrack and I'm still learning what all it can do.

Anyway, I wanted to know what file comicrack stores it's database date in. When I say "Database", I mean the lists that Comicrack generates when inputing a field like "Writer" or "Inker" or whatever. I put in some misspellings that I'd like to remove from the lists if possible.

Thanks!

CR uses .XML files to store information. Both in case of its main DB and regarding the files added in the archives (if the option is checked).

If you want to edit them, Notepad is sufficient. But, if you want to open the main DB file, it could take a while to open it :)

Easy way:

Make a smart list with the mis-spelt word. Select all books in that list. Correct the spellings via the Info dialog! B)

Yup, the smart list way could work too... if you remember all the typos you made :P

If he doesnt remember his typos, he would have an even harder time browsing the database searching for them! :lol:

Well, my database is still small, so it was still easy to find the misspelled words and do a smartlist for them. That took care of it! Thanks!

People are strange. They ask for special editing features, but they're not interested in the integration of office suites that could provide such.
