after update: two libraries, collections deleted

Postby olivers » Thu Jan 29, 2015 1:17 pm

dear madam or sir,

mac air latest, os yosemite.
after updating to the latest version of book+dvd pedia, both pieces of software show 2 libraries each and my collections are deleted. in each software one library is empty (colored icon) the other seems to be my original library (grey icon).
i tried to sync with bookpedia 2 on the iphone 5 to bring back order.
as a result it left everything the same on the mac and destroyed the library on the iphone.
thats rather unpleasant!
a hint on how one could get back to work with the pedias would be most welcome.
thank you in advance!

Sounds like you need to select the second Library (the one with the grey icon) and use the menu command "File -> Include Collection in Library".

But just to be safe do make sure you have a backup of your data folder first. You will find the database in your data folder located in your home folder at ~/Library/Application Support/Bookpedia/Database.bookpd. Under Yosemite you must use the Finder menu "Go -> Go To..." command and enter "~/Library/Application Support/Bookpedia" to open the folder. Once there select the Database.bookpd and use the "Compress" command under the main "File" menu. This will create a .zip version as backup. Also should you have any trouble with the above attach this zip version to an email message and we can take a look.

Repeat for DVDpedia.
