  • This has been requested before and has now been added.

    Now whenever you index an issue that is collected by another book (i.e. HC, TPB, etc) all of the "collecting" books will update their information to include whatever you just added. The only thing it will not do is update the cover artist...that has to be manually set in the collecting book.

    Also, whenever you index a TPB or HC to indicate what it collects, the system will then pull in all of the information from the books you indicated.

  • I have been thoroughly enjoying this feature Applause ....now is it possible to do this for variants as well? I know there is that clone feature so this is not that big of a deal as the TPBs

  • This would be a tall order. Part of the problem is we just flag an issue as a variant...not what it is a variant of.

    Although I can definitely see the benefit it might take a while before I can figure out an elegant way to link 2 issues together.

  • Like I said though it is not that big of a deal if you cannot because cloning takes an instant...but I appreciate this new feature a lot!

  • Ok...I started working on this part of it. You should now be able to set what actual issue it is a variant of instead of just flagging it as a variant.

    This will eventually enable the following when you index an issue that has variants:

    The contributors (minus cover artist) and characters will auto index as well
    Reviews might actually be left with the primary book, but "apply" to the variants
    Allow users to "collapse" variants in the list

    As with anything, please let me know if you run into any issues.
