    Suggested Features

    Some suggested new features for your consideration: 1. Regarding pricing: Have a UNIT PRICE then multiply that amount by QUANTITY to get SUBTOTAL. 2. Regarding pricing: Store TAX1 and TAX2. Then multiply SUBTOTAL by each to get TOTAL COST. Allow override, which is sometimes needed. 3. Regarding insurance: Store policy number information in drop down table. Allow me to select one. 4. Regarding monitor/screen/displays: I have spoken to support regarding HD screens. The software needs to handle HD screens. I cannot read the buttons at the top and many screens the data displayed is very tiny, making it hard for me to read. 5. Allow for larger size files for upload here in the forum. Currently limited to <500k. Thanks! BTW: This is a very good product! As I become more familiar with it, I find more excellent features.

    Hi Everyone, Every time I open the add coin dialog I find that I have to click on the column headings in teh selection box to open ukp the year column. By deafault, I can only see the first two digits of the years. For example "19". After I double lick the header, then I can see the full column. I've attached s ample screen shot. Is there a way to get the year column to stay open so I don't have to double click it to expand the width everytime I want to add a coin?

    Font Size in My Collection Grid

    I was looking to try to increase the font size in the grid that lists the coins in my collection. I found the preference->font size setting for lists. I have changed the font size to 26, and then back to 10. I would expect font 26 to look bigger but it is no different than font size 10. Does anyone have a suggestion for what else I can try? I am working on Windows 10, and have a 4k laptop, hooked up to an external screen. I've tried resetting my resolution but that isn't helping much either. Thanks in advance for any tips.

    Locations / Fields

    I have two different LOCATIONS and would like to have different fields in each. Setting up the first location was a snap. All the fields within that location were where I wanted them. And the rooms fields within were where I wanted them. The second LOCATION without rooms I have added different fields. My first location took on the same fields as the second location but the rooms in the first locations are ok and the items entered in the second location are ok The only thing I'm trying to do is have the 2 locations have different fields. Like LOCATION (1) home with pictures of the home and have rooms within that location. Location (2) home with pictues of a different home and have rooms within but have different fields. Thanks

    The above is the quoted text from my last message I posted yesterday as a reply to a former message. It is shown as "Read Content." So I figured it was time to change the topic so it would get noticed as a new topic in the forum. Now that's that! Let's get to business!! I tried to download and install SM2018 yesterday after I read your previous reply. I know I'm late, but thank you very much!! After about two hours, I started wondering what was taking it so long to install. But I had to go somewhere and I was hoping when I returned it would be finished. Upon my return, it had continued to install but not by much and I didn't understand that. I had been gone for more than four hours!! That's when I shot off the above message to you.I waited for the program to continue installing, but it was moving veerrry slow and so was my whole computer!!! I opened another tab to try to watch YouTube. It wouldn't load. In fact, nothing would load, not even the home page of my browser!! That's when I knew there was definitely a problem somewhere else and I started investigating. I started with the firewall (I disabled it), then the antivirus (I disabled it), and the VPNs (I disabled them). It took forever to accomplish these tasks, but it didn't make any difference. I didn't restart because I didn't want to interrupt the installation. BUT it was still moving slow!!! By now it was about 10pm (ET) and I was really upset. But I let it run until 12am. this morning. I got frustrated and cancelled the installation because after more than 12 hours it had only installed about 1/5th of the program!!! I restarted my computer and continued my investigation. I checked everything and disabled all that I could that I thought would affect the speed of the internet and/or the installation of SM2018. Later after some sleep, I checked the internet connection and network. They were fine and no problems were found. Nothing changed!!! So I went to the heavy duty stuff like AVG Internet Security and Dell Support Assist. After each program finished its business, I restarted my computer. Again, no change!!! So I don't get it!! What is the problem? What am I doing wrong or what is wrong with my computer?? Any legit suggestions are encouraged and welcomed!! Any help that may relieve me of the levels of stress and frustration will be greatly appreciated!! And in advance I thank you so very much!! God bless you all!!!

    12 hours is way too long unless you have a slow internet connection. We have had some problems with AVG in the past. Is it possible AVG is slowing down the download somehow?

    Time frames?

    So-no new updates before the 2019 release? Have already been receiving First Day Covers from May which are not included in the last update. Just need to know for planning. I can add manually if things are going to be longer than a month, but would not want to go that route if things would move faster than that or an update was coming in a few days. Thanks for the earlier answer. I was just clarifying why I wanted to know.

    After update to HomeMange 2018 version my original data cannot be edit anymore because of the alert shown below. I use Win 10. The currency shown in the edit pane is € and the seperator is .. (two dots) . When I try to edit the field, the curreny sign is not shown and the .. (two dots) become a . (one dot), but it is not editable unless you delete the amount. How can I restore the data or prevent the alert?

    Canada $1 Loon Scott 1687

    SM shows this as the 46c Canada flag and not the Loon. The Loon is Scott 1687 and the Flag IS 1682. Can this be corrected?

    Can I delete unused Status ?

    I found that I can create my own Status by simply typing in the field for this and that's nice, but how can I remove those I'm not going to use?

    I have added my two vehicles to HM using the Add Vehicle feature. I am able to complete the various fields as needed. However, regarding the Comments field, the "Enter" key does not function. I am able to type text directly into the field. I can also copy and paste text, but the "Enter" key does not work. The arrow keys work and I can add/delete text but not use the "Enter" key. Bug?

    My initial question is under the topic Values. (please read). I saw this post and I think it relating to the problems I am having with Values because of how I entered my stamps. I did make new Categories in the Stamp Manager. The reasoning was all specific type of items would be all together. Better reporting details I believed. But It will not list my format with the values. When I start a new sub directory examples First Day Covers - I do not use my First day cover picture as it seem to replace the picture in Regular Issue. Help would be appreciated.

    Feature Request

    I would like to be able to set "default" entries for ALL of the fields in the "Condition of Stamp" section of the Add Stamp(s) window. This feature change would significantly decrease the time spent adding stamps to my collection. You would, of course, keep the ability to click the drop-down to override the default. Could this be added to the Tools / Preferences... dialog?

    Data Transfer

    can you try FILE > UPDATE STAMPMANAGE FILE from the main menu. Does that fill in the missing items? Do a local backup before trying this.

    Data Transfer

    NOW you tell me!!? Thanks. I will try but my concern is my files are messed up since adding the 2017 upgrade. For instance, my US database starts with Scott #1 and then goes to #143!! I can't figure it out!! I am so frustrated that I am about to say forget it and go to another software. I really don't want to do that because I really like SM, but I can't get any answers to my problems.

    Database errors

    You can fix that by adding your own correct image. I have done that numerous times to correct or display better quality images that I scanned from my actual stamp!

    Any way to add more than 4 images to my coins? 4 image limit is severely limiting me and it IS my computer space.
