Hi

Can I request a feature to have the option of filtering movies by multi-genre.
for example, if I am looking for movies like "eternal sunshine of the spotless mind", I can filter on Romans&Sci-Fi

currently, I am not able to do that as I have to either select on genre at at time.

=========
one more request
can you add the ability to search the movie description, for example, what if i want to search for a movie in its description that have "time travel"
that would be a great feature to have

=========
one last request, can we add a filter for year range, for example, what if I am interested in movies from 1990 to 2005. can we have a filter for "year range".

thanks a lot for this wonderful masterpiece.

I have good news Hassiba :D

Dual genres and year ranges are already available. Just press 'Add/Remove Filters' then add 'genre2' and 'year2' 8)

As for searching the description, that isn't possible at the moment and might not be feasible but there is something similar that you might be interested in. Tagging should become available at some point which would make it possible to look for movies tagged 'time-travel'.

- P.S. I'm just a fellow Coollector user hoping I can be of assistance. I expect Hector will probably reply at some later point.

You can already make a multi-genre search. Simply click the button "Add/Remove Filters" to display the filters "genre" and "genre2".

It's already possible using the filters "year" and "year2".

Sorry, I don't plan to add such a filter, because it'd be very slow to search all the descriptions, and also because the description isn't a reliable way to find the "time travel" movies.

It's not really an alternative, but do you know that you can tag a movie with the tag "time travel" then use the tag filter to list all the movies with the tag "time travel"? To tag a movie, click the green "No Tag" which is displayed after the movie genres and countries.

Too bad we answered exactly at the same time. Your answer is just as good as mine! You're ready to replace me :V:

What do you mean "should become available at some point"? This feature is already available.

lol, vague response because I wasn't completely sure. I haven't used coollector much since the last time I've updated. I was gonna look through the Versions History again after a short ride but you beat me to it :(

P.S. I know it's midnight. 8) Bad habit...

The program has a lot of features, and it'll probably take you several days to discover them all. It's highly recommended to read the online help:

http://www.coollector.com/help.html

And it's far from finished. I have a very long list of great features to add 8)
