‘Open With’ Script

This script allows you to extend ComicRack™ by adding your own “Open With” proPOPULAR gram shortcut to the right click Automation menu. Add as many items as you need by running it multiple times. When you are choosing file types, be SURE that the program you select will handle those file types, otherwise the program will probably give you a nasty error message about not recognizing that file type. 2

From the main menu select File → Automation → Build ‘Open With’ Menu Item... . The script will prompt you for a label and the comic book file types you want to allow be used

After correctly completing all the previous steps, click Ok and restart ComicRack™. Right click on a comic book, select Automation, and you’ll see “Open With Something You Typed”.

Other Scripts Create Combined Script Technology breeds technology. So, if you get tired of running script after script, this create combined script here creates a new script that simply executes several scripts one after the other on the selected comics. Find it in the File → Automation menu. It has a selection form that allows you to select what scripts you want and put them in the order you desire.

Extract All Pages This script extracts all the pages of a comic book to a user specified folder. Rather then opening windows explorer & navigating to the folder containing the comic book to be unzipped, then opening the cbz/cbr file with a zip file manager (WinZip/WinRar) and extracting the pages, it is far quicker to extract pages of selected comic books by a single click of the script button on the browser toolbar.

Extract First Page This script is a child of the previous script, and is quite similar in operation. This will extract only the first page of all selected comic books. The file name is generated based on the comic book series name, volume number, and issue number.

List Comic Files in Directory Runs outside of ComicRack. This script lists all the CRB and CBZ files located in a user selected directory and all its sub-directories. There are two version of this script: one exports the list to a txt file, the other exports to an xls/xlsx file but requires Microsoft Excel.

Write Missing Issues to Text File Writes a list of missing issue in a series to a user specified text file. It can be run on the whole library or on specific series and volume.
