Built In Scripts ComicRack™ comes pre-loaded with a number of scripts. This section briefly discusses these built in scripts, while the forthcoming pages discusses scripts downloadable from the ComicRack™ forum. Most of the built in scripts (and also those that you install later) can be accessed from their respective icons on the browser toolbar. Some of the scripts require going to Browser context menu → Automation.

Autonumber Wizard This is a script to renumber the selected comic books. To use the script, either click its icon on the browser toolbar, or right-click the selected comic book(s), and via the Browser context menu go to Automation → Autonumber wizard. • Number Series: changes the number field of the series accordingly • Number Alternate Series: helpful in making chronologies (see example below) • Begin at number: the starting issue number of the series being renumbered • Save total number: this will be the total count of the series

Arrange the comic books in the chronological order you want them in. Sort descending by the position field.

While keeping all the comic books selected, open the Autonumber wizard. Choose number alternate series from the drop-down menu. Begin at number 1 & also input the total count.

The series now has all the alternate number fields in order. You can now arrange them by the alternate number field.

Commit Proposed Values Proposed values are metadata fields that ComicRack™ auto fills by processing the filename. The commit proposed values is a script to make the proposed values for the comic books permanent. To use the script, right-click the selected comic book(s), and via the Browser context menu go to Automation → commit proposed values. A dialog will appear, asking for your confirmation. Clicking Write will make the proposed values permanent.

Proposed values are generated from the filenames, and are displayed in grey.

The Commit proposed values script dialog

The proposed values now appear like any other metadata fields.
