Stacks Layout Stacking implies placing books one above the other in the ComicRack™ browser. To stack books in ComicRack™, just click the Stack button on the Browser toolbar, and choose the metadata field that you wish to use as the criterion for stacking your books. Stacking comic books in the thumbnail & tiles views brings forth few additional features. Double-clicking on a stack opens up its individual comic books in the browser, and additionally the Stacks toolbar appears on top of the browser window. Stacks display the average (community) rating of the stack. Bookmarks on stack display how many of the books in the stack have been read.

Search Browser

Clicking the docking grip present at the top of the browser opens the search browser. Combining the Search browser with the Stacks toolbar gives greater level of control over navigating the comic books

Can I choose which comic book will be shown as the cover for a particular stack ?

Yes. Open up the stack by double-clicking it. Now, right-click any comic book to get the browser context menu (see next page), with an additional option: Set as top of stack. You can use this option to select any comic book (from all the comic books constituting the stack) to appear as the stack cover.

You can even choose any custom picture file to be displayed at the top of a particular stack. Right-click any stack to get the browser context menu, with an additional option: Set custom stack thumbnail. This option will allow you to browse to the desired picture file (.JPG/.PNG/. GIF/.BMP/.ICO) of your choice to be used as the stack cover.
