Hi,

I understand lists can be custom-order by dragging and dropping the comics... but, for instance, for a 100+ comics saga doing this by hand is a mess...

Could it be possible to have a new feature to create lists from simple text files?

thanks

How would you match the items in the file with an eComics entry in ComicRack? Would the source text file contain absolute file paths for eComics that are expected to have existing entries in the database?

Well, that's the hard part... tipically the reading order lists only contain the series and issue... converting them into a complete path info for my comics would be a harder work than creating the list in Comicrack! :laugh:

So there should be a search in the DB to see if each comic is available matching they entry in the list with the Comicrack Database... not easy!

The typical reading list looks like this -
STAMFORD
Civil War #1
Wolverine #42
She-Hulk #8
Civil War: Front Line #1
Amazing Spider-Man #532
New Avengers #21

REGISTRATION ACT BECOMES LAW
Civil War #2
Amazing Spider-Man #533
Civil War: Front Line #2
New Avengers #22
Thunderbolts #103
Wolverine #43

CIVIL WAR BEGINS
Wolverine #44
Civil War: Front Line #3
Civil War: Young Avengers & Runaways #1
Civil War: Young Avengers & Runaways #2
Civil War: Young Avengers & Runaways #3
Civil War: Young Avengers & Runaways #4
X-Factor #8
X-Factor #9
Civil War: Front Line #4
Thunderbolts #104
Thunderbolts #105
Black Panther #18
Fantastic Four #538
Wolverine #45
Captain America #22
Heroes For Hire #1
Cable & Deadpool #30
Civil War: Front Line #5
