Re: Even newer version of CATraxx available!

Hi everybody. I've just upgraded to 9.46 but I experienced a big problem. It looks like the "tag reading override" doesn't work anymore. When I scan my hard drive, I tell Catraxx to read info form the directory structure (in my case: \%album_artist%\=%year%=%album_title%\), NOT from the mp3 tags. I...

Re: maximum size of a database file

In the past I had scans of cover inside database : the limits were reached easily. Actually no image stored inside database : no problem. I have the same database on Bookcat and Book Collector : nearly 30.000 books, 3.000 contents, 7.000 authors Bookcat : 42,92 Mo Book Collector : 21,44 Mo But I fir...

Re: Even newer version of CATraxx available!

Honestly, if Fredrik wants, he might consider putting up Donate button somewhere without any obligations on his part, of course. I feel like I owe him a bit for his continuing efforts to make us CATraxx users happy. Maybe opensource one day? I totally agree ! I'm very happy to see the new evolution...

Re: "New" BookCAT available

I make bibliographies of books from the period 1850-1950, also without ISBN.
I never use the "Download from Internet" : I don't know if there are differences inside this part.

What I am sure : The problem with scrolling on drop-down lists is still there on Windows 10.

I never use "Report" or "Loan".

Short story at the end of book

I need advices : I have old ( french ) dime-novels/pulps with a 18 pages story by an author ( name him A ) and a 2 pages story by another author ( name him B ) to fill the 20 pages dime-novel. The cover of the booklet wears the title and name of the main story ( A ). How would you record this bookle...

Re: duplicate Item

In the "Book View", go to the column "Title", and click on the word "Title" : il will sort the titles in the alphabetical order. You can see if 2 books have the same title and verify if it is the same book recorder twice. If you have 1000 books, it's not too difficult, I do it sometimes and I have 3...

Re: Experiences with Collectorz

Tried MuC too, I found it good at first, but the more I use it, the more i'm unhappy. MuC don't download from Discogs no more. You can only download from their own Database called Core. This "Core" database is a copy of Discogs, but not a complete copy. Here is a sample with "Sticky Fingers" by Roll...

Discogs App

I used Catraxx more to manage the music files I downloaded from Internet Archive ( many live archives from Grateful Dead to Calexico ). The advantage was I could listen to this music via the Catraxx player. After the demise of Fredrik, I wanted to manage my collection of CD ( actually nearly 200 ) a...
