:(
So I've installed the programme but how do I set about getting ANY comics to read?
Easy question to answer?
I've clicked on 'File' and have selected several alternative options but not a single comic has appeared.
I feel remarkably inept.

Do you have any files to read? If so you need to import them.

In the Folders tab find the files on your hard-drive, select them and then <right click> Add To Library.

You may want to have a look through the manual:

Thanks. I had expected ComicRack to simply load up a whole bundle of comics once I had booted it up. What surprised me was that all that I had before me was the Manual. I shall get my nose into it forthwith......as long as it tells me just how to load some comics.
I looked into my main C Drive then Program Files and ComicRack.
In there all I found, apart from a collection of 'dll' files were sections titled Help, Language, Resources and Scripts.

ComicRack supplies zero comics. It's a tool to organize and read your existing comics. How you acquire those comics is up to you and requires research on sources other than this forum. I believe Fred Perry offered/offers his first 200 or so issues of Gold Digger for free from his personal website. Do a web search (#boycottgoogle, they now filter your results not just to be personalized but also to hide things they find 'objectionable') for those to help you work through the getting started guide.

I think there's a newbie guide called 'The organizer' or something that's stickied. Look around for it.
found it: http://comicrack.cyolito.com/forum/38-tutorials/39160-the-organizer-2015-2nd-edition

Spend some time poking through these forums. Buried in here are a lot of great tips.

Many thanks for this most useful piece of advice. I shall begin snuffling but pronto.
It'll be very enjoyable to get underway again.

Just and advice, take it easy, ComicRack is one of those piece of software that are not to use everything from day 0, it has A LOT of options, and scripts, and things... I have used it DEEPLY for many years now, and I still find out things I didn't know quite often.

Just thing of comicrack as a Word or Excel, where everyday you learn something new, but you can simply use it since the beginning
