Smart Lists ComicRack™ gives you the ability to organize your comic books with Smart lists: these work much like rules in email programs (mail filters). Any comic book that matches the conditions you set out will automatically appear in the smart list. Smart lists thus consist of rules the user can define in order to create dynamic, self-updating lists of comics. ComicRack™ itself comes with seven built-in smart lists: ‘Files to update’, ‘My Favorites’, ‘Never Read’, ‘Read’, ‘Reading’, ‘Recently Added’ and ‘Recently Read’. You could, for example, create a Smart list of all comic books you rated more than four stars. Anytime you rate a comic book four or five star, ComicRack™ would automatically add it to your smart list; this cannot be achieved with a regular ComicRack™ custom list, unless you manually added or deleted some of them. Smart Lists can have multiple conditions, which limit their potential only to your creativity.

To create a smart list, either click the new smart list icon on the sidebar toolbar, or choose New Smart List from the Sidebar context menu (appears on right-clicking anywhere inside the sidebar). 2.

3. You may click the button at the end of the name row. This opens up additional options, including notes to be displayed as tooltips, showing the list in the quick open box, and setting limits. This is an optional step, and can be performed at any later time, or left incomplete.
