Browser Views The Views button helps choose how and what comic books are displayed. Basically, you get to choose from 3 different views: thumbnails, tiles & details. We shall discuss these in the coming sections. The Views button also provides options for showing all / not read / reading / read comic books as well as finding duplicate comic books (see below) in your collection. You can also choose to show only comic books or show only fileless entries. To know more about fileless entries, read the section on Fileless comic entries in the Managing chapter.

Choose from among thumbnails/tiles/details for viewing your books in the browser

Use this option to collapse/expand all grouped books in the browser window.

Quick toggle between read/unread/reading books.

ComicRack™ has its in-built duplicate file finder. Click here to show duplicates in your library. Details are discussed below. Advanced users can use the “Duplicates Manager” script (discussed later).

If you wish to show only fileless book entries, or only ‘real’ books, this is option is the quickest way to this.

Click the Views button to toggle between the thumbnails, tiles & details views. Clicking the small downward-pointing arrow beside the views button opens up the views menu.

Removing Duplicates The Views button provides an option to find & remove duplicate issues that you may have accumulated over time. There are a number of metadata values needed for comics to be matched; most importantly, Series Name, Issue Number and Volume. Note that “Superman #1” and “Superman V1 #1” would not match, nor would “Superman V1 #1” and “Superman V2 #1”. To use this feature, select Views in the Browser window and select Show Duplicates. After a slight delay (dependent on the total number of issues in the library, folder or list that this feature is run against), all applicable duplicates will display, allowing the user to make any changes or deletions desired.
