Hello.
I moved some files to an external USB to save space in my main disk.
But I wanted them to remain cataloged in ComicRack, so I unchecked the relevant option, "Automatically remove missing files from Library during scan".
After doing that, the missing files do in fact remain cataloged, but there are 2 different behaviors: Some entries still appear with its thumbnail, but with the added "X" icon. Some others appear with the "giant X" deleted thumbnail. It seems clearly cache-related (if I manually refresh the entry, the thumbnail disappears).
I would like and option to preserve the thumbnails for missing items. Maybe converting it to fileless entries, which store their thumbnails as separate files if I understood correctly. Maybe it would be better/simpler to have the option to store ALL the thumbnails on disk (and obviously optionally don't delete them when detecting missing files, only with manually deleted ones). Just ideas, cYo will know better.
Greetings.
