Sorting your library

You can sort your library by purchase date, title, publisher, or rule system in either descending (Z - A) or ascending (A - Z) order . Just click on the sorting option drop down located between select all and the search (there will be an icon with an arrow pointing down next to a list of lines), and then select the option you want to use to sort.

Keyword Search

It is possible to search for titles by keyword(s). The app will only display titles that have a match in their title, publisher or rule system to the keyword(s) that was entered in the search bar.

At this time the search function is limited and behaves similar to the search of My Library. It will search for matches that are exactly in the same order as what the keywords were typed in. 

Example if you searched for  White Wolf, then the library will be filtered to show titles that White Wolf  is the publisher of. But if you searched for Whitewolf then, titles with White Wolf as the publisher will not appear in the results.

Collections

Collections are groups of titles in your library. There are four default collections (All, Downloaded, Not Downloaded, and Has Updates), plus the ability to make as many custom collections as you would like to sort your library to fit your needs.

Collections will only sort and organize your library view in the app. It will not sort or order your actual files on your device.

A title can be placed in multiple collections.
A collection can have any number of titles in it. 

Collections are stored as part of your online library information. If you create or update a collection on one device, you can use Sync library data to update your custom collections on your other devices.

 

The Collection menu can be accessed by clicking on the button with the folder icon.

On the main library view it will have the name of the selected collection. The number in the parentheses on the right side of the collection name is the total number of titles in that collection.

  • The main library menu is limited to creating, deleting and renaming collections
  • When a collection is selected from the drop down in the main library view the app will only show the titles that are contained in that collection. 

 

In selection mode the button will have the texted manage collections and is located between the download selected and select/unselect all buttons. Here you can create new collections and add or remove single or multiple titles from a single collection or multiple collections at once

In the title information page it's in the top right area, at the very top above the information. Here you can create new collections and add or remove that title from a single or multiple collections.

Default collections can not be edited or have titles manually added or removed. These are the previous filtering tabs that had existed as individual buttons.

All - Will display your entire library.

Downloaded - Will display titles that have files downloaded

Not Downloaded - Will display only titles that do not have files downloaded

      • Titles can only be added or removed at a time. It is not possible to add a title while removing a title.  

If you happen to select a title that already exists in a collection, but the other titles are not in the collection then when you click on the collection it will just add the new titles. The title that is already in the collection will not be removed. 

In this case a gray icon with a white cross will appear next to the collection name where the title is in  to let you know that only the titles that are not in the collection yet will be added to the collection and nothing else will happen.

In order to remove the title you will need to click on the collection while its name is green with a green check mark.
