  2. Thank you for this work-around. I tested it and it works, but I don't know what else I broke with this change. I hope you will fix this issue in the next update to HomeManage. I still see it as an issue (and your suggestion as a work-around) for this reason. If there are other applications on my machine that are like HomeManage, this change may break them. If the application is built around a specific date format rather than using the system date format, this issue will always be there. Currently I know of no applications that this will break, but since the change is at the operating system level, it is system wide and can affect all applications, so I'll need to be on the lookout for problems in other applications. Thanks, David

  4. Stamp Manage Update

    There is a new update available for Stamp Manage so I downloaded it. 1, The issue where the stamp image does nor change has not been fixed. It seems to occur after using Add Stamps but not 100% 2, I still cannot find a way to create my own values database. I had issues creating one (ended up with several if you look at an internal SM file) but cannot find a way to save values. I actually would prefer having a specific value for say Mint VF NH and Mint VF NH rather than forced to use the NH percentage. I will probably just override all the values. If you create a new value database and want to copy records from the built-in db, you get this error. I have created all these in my testing but only 2 show up as options (2018 is SM, Al is mine but blank) Anyone been able to create their own values database. If select my values db and then try to add values via Stamp Database Manager they are not saved. Plus it takes a few minutes after to make changes to database.

    So I see. Guess I’ll look elsewhere. I’m sure someone is willing to take my money AND provide some acceptable level of customer support/satisfaction. That’s unfortunate.
  7. Various

    You don't.

    Add your own coins as you go along to the data base. Update all the values yourself. This guy does nothing for free.
  9. Stamp Manage Database usage

    Guidelines would be useful
  10. I have entered and submitted updates to Liberty Software and noticed some differences in how people add information. Fields (based upon column names) 1. Variety - Majority of people use this for the Scott design number. A few use it for variety details. 2. Variety Type - mixed usage. Some use it as definitive/commemorative, others use as Scott design number, also see used to describe why stamp was issues This is added in the "Type" box.. For entries created by Liberty Street, I see variation in usage. Two examples. 3. Variety Notes - mixed usage. The text entry is called variety comments I would expect this is where you put the actual specifics about variety (like surcharge, etc) 4. Series If the stamp is part of a set like definitive, I like to use this for grouping that do not have a name as they would be grouped in an album. 5. Other Text This text come from the Text on stamp box but also see other information in this field. 6. Definitive/Commemorative SM uses as indicator for definitive/Commemorative (check box) and shows up as a true/false field. Therefore using another field is redundant unless you want to see definitive/commemorative instead of true. I wonder about others thoughts and maybe having a guideline on how to use some fields.
  11. Hi we did a remote control to another user that had this problem. What is happening is your Windows Control Panel short date setting is: M/D/YYYY change it to: MM/DD/YYYY and this should work.
  12. I noticed the format in your snippet above is yyyy-MM-dd. See my snippet for comparison (it is M/d/yyyy). I see no place to change this formatting. I attempted to enter the same dates in your example above, April 12, 2011 and November 21, 2017, but using the M/d/yyyy formatting expected in my application. See the pics below for the final result. What happens is the month placeholder will only accept 1 digit, even though the cursor can be moved 1 place in the field, demonstrating that there are 2 places in the field. So for April 12, 2011, I tried entering digits in this order with no spaces: 4122011. The day field only accepts the first digit, then the cursor jumps to the year field, where it places the 2 in 12 followed by the first 3 digits of 2011. I got an error beep on the last digit of 2011. Afterwards, I entered the Received Date typing the following digits with no spaces: 11212017. I got the error beep on the last two digits, 17. Below are the results:
  13. Hi, we are trying to reproduce this problem and cannot. Attached is a screenshot of what we see when adding an asset with 2 user defined dates. Can you show a screenshot of what you see when adding an asset in this same section? Thanks. we were able to fix the problem with duplicate USER DATE FIELD 1 entries.
  14. Earlier
  15. After closing and restarting the application, I noticed that all 4 images of the House location now appear in the images tab just as they should. I also noticed that the application allowed me to add the same 3 images to the Shed location that I attempted to add above, this time without improperly rotating any of the images.
  16. When I clicked the properties of the House location, a dialog with tabs General, Attachments, Item Picture(s) and Notebook appeared. My goal was to add some lawn maintenance that I had done recently to the Notebook. That task worked well, but I decided to add images of the house -- didn't realize that I could. Adding the images to House worked as expected. I then went to add images of the shed behind the house to a location I created called Shed. I added 3 images in the order they appear in the app, 1, 2, 3. The first two images worked as expected and the images appeared in the dialog as expected -- no surprises. However, the third image appeared rotated 90 degree CC, even though I took the image on an iPhone in portrait mode (all the images of the shed were taken in portrait mode). I then clicked the Edit button thinking the app may allow me to rotate the image, but nothing happened. So while viewing the 1 rotated image, I pressed the Clear button to clear it so I could try re-adding the image. Re-adding the image worked (I used drag and drop to add all images) but the image appeared with the same rotation problem. I cleared the image. When the image addition failed, by habit I clicked on image 2 and image 1 just to check them. They both appeared to be missing (blank all white panel) -- a surprise since I only intended to clear the one image. So the issues so far are: 1) the app rotated an image improperly 2) the app appears to have cleared all images for the location when I only intended to clear the one mis-rotated image 3) the Edit button did nothing I then went back to the House location properties to check the images there. They all appeared to be correct with no rotation problems, even though of the four images of the house I took, 2 were in portrait mode and 2 were in landscape mode. I selected one of the images, then clicked the Edit button just as a test to see if it would fail again. The Edit button opened MS Paint! Without editing anything, I closed Paint and went back to the Shed to attempt adding all the images again. There were still no images showing on the shed, so I used drag-n-drop to put the same images in the same placeholders. Although there were no errors triggered, and the drag-n-drop operation appeared to work as normal, no images showed up in the locations. The Edit button was grayed out. I went back to the House location to view the images there, and the last image (image 4) was missing, and the other three appeared all black -- completely black with no shades of any color. I clicked on Edit and the actual image appeared in Paint. Without editing the image I closed Paint and the House properties dialog box. As I'm trying to figure out what's happening here, I went back to the Shed and House locations a few times just to check what was visible. Ultimately, all the house images seem to have disappeared even though I never edited any of them, and I never clicked the Clear button (no need to -- all 4 images were perfect). Since I know where the application stores the images, I went to that location in Explorer. All 4 images of the house were present with names like Location184(1).jpg, Location184(2).jpg, etc. None of the pictures of the Shed location were present. Note that all the image manipulation buttons are active in the House properties dialog box, which makes sense since the images all exist; you just can't see them in the pplication image boxes. However, all of the same buttons are grayed out for the Shed location, which also makes sense since the images no longer exist. What doesn't make sense is not being able to re-add the images to the Shed location. 4) So even though the shed images were not present, the application would not let me add images of the shed 5) Even though the images of the house are still present, the application doesn't show them in the properties dialog box for the House location There appears to be plenty wrong with the way the application manages images. I can't figure it out. All images added in this exercise were in JPG format from an 8MP iPhone camera. - David
  17. Thanks. Looking forward to the fix. I've noticed several issues with how the application handles images. I'll be posting an additional one or two today that I just came across.
  18. Hi, thanks for the report. we have fixed some problems with deleting images. You will see the fixes in the next release of the product in a week or 2. We will also look at the other requests you posted.

    Ok, I'm going to say this one more time! There is no period in the album name. That period in my reply is simply a period to end a sentence. I'm surprised that you could not deduce that! The period also is not in bold text like the album name. You're suggesting a solution to a problem that doesn't exist. Regards, Walter

    This side of the pond in England its a Full Stop. Periods are things that ladies have. We suffer with color, colour; Gray, Grey; Gas, Petrol; etc I remember my teenage daughter babysitting for our American friends and I quote" the diapers are in this bag and the cookies are in the tin". What is a diaper and cookie she asked. I agree you use a different dictionary to us. But back to the problem. I use "( ) - , ; "etc in my title ( e.g. File Names). The only character I don't use is the period (Full Stop). Thought this might be the solution? to the problem. The Stamp Manage Program uses 'Microsoft Access' as its base program. With my 665,000 plus records showing Stamp Denomination and 90% showing Year coupled with 303,000 images (showing the correct image,) I have left using Stamp Manage many years ago. With too many errors/corrections/etc. Regards Colin@ColinPattrick.com

    That's the first time I've ever heard a period described that way!

    Jawo, no offense taken. You did an adequate job explaining your question. I just misunderstood your intent. The screenshot got me back on the right track. I'm glad you got it worked out.

    Wchettel, Sorry I've expressed myself in a bad way. I am Norwegian and English is not my native language, and then there may be some problems for me to explain things, but you led me on to the right track , and you gave me a solution to what I thought was a problem and now it is solved . Thank you so much for your help and patience with someone who does not quite know what he wants.

    What do you mean by your term "Full Stop"?
  27. View By Errors

    Hi, yes its probably the () or the period or even the dash. We will fix this for the upcoming free update. It will be out later this week.

    Hi Is that a FULL STOP at the end of your Album Name? White Ace-1 (1893-1956). Your Album name is used as a File Name. Just delete the Full Stop.
  29. Feature Request

    YES, DEFINITELY! I thought that's what I was asking, I just used different words.
