A couple of requests for Bookpedia

Postby bfeinstein » Sat Sep 07, 2019 6:39 pm

1. Could you create a way to mark a book as an anthology volume with additional fields to list the books contained within? Same could be useful for DVD sets.

2. Would you consider creating fields for photographer and designer in addition to illustrator for bookpedia?

3. Also perhaps a way to list chapter names--this is useful for how-to books and instructional books. DVDpedia would also benefit from this.

4. Create a way to launch an image file from DVDpedia.

Thank you for the feedback on improving the programs.

Do take a look at "Bookpedia -> Preferences -> Fields (tab)", you will find a few custom fields there that can be renamed and let you customize Bookpedia a bit to fit your needs. Including moving the order of the fields and what tab they appear.

Bookpedia will handle a number of different file formats. The ones it knows how to display it will do so inline and others pass them on to your favorite viewer. If you want all to open in external viewer/editor you will find that option in the preferences. So do drag and drop a few image files over a book details and it will link them directly so that you can launch and image right away from Bookpedia and view it.
