Copying / Pasting Layouts Making a list layout is easy. ComicRack™ has features supporting a number of layout customizations, so that you get the perfect layout, exactly as you desire. However, if you have a large number of lists, and you wish to assign them your favorite layout, you don’t have to repeat the same steps again and again. ComicRack™ provides for easy copying & pasting of list layouts, so that you may simply apply your preferred layouts to other lists with just the click of a button. You can access layout copy / paste options from any of two places described below: • The layout menu, which appears as a small menu on clicking on any empty space in the browser. • Right-clicking any column in the details view brings about the details context menu. Among other options, it also contains the layout menu, which contains the layout copy/paste options. Here is how to copy / paste the list layout: 1. Once you are satisfied with a list layout, use the layout menu to copy the layout of this desired list. 2. From the sidebar, select the other list to which you wish to paste the layout of the desired list. From the layout menu, select paste. 3. The layout of the selected list will immediately change to match that of your desired list. 4. Repeat Step 2 for any number of lists to which you wish to assign the layout chosen in Step 1.

1

Our desired list here has details view, arranged by position, columns manually re-sized and no grouping or stacking

2

This is the list to which we wish to apply the layout displayed in step 1. Here we have thumbnails view, grouped by genre & arranged by volume.

3

Once the layout paste action is performed, the layout in step 2 immediately changes to that of our desired list in step 1. See how it exactly mirrors the original !

How do I backup my list layouts ?

While ComicRack™ provides a database backup feature, it does not include your list layout presets. However, you can always manually backup your list layouts. Just follow these steps: 1. Open an explorer window and just go to: %APPDATA%\cYo\ComicRack\ 2. Copy the Config.xml file to a safe location. 3. While restoring database, paste this file back in the location specified in step 1. On restarting ComicRack™, all your list layouts will be preserved.
