Noticed a very little problem : after using OverviewCheck, DvdProfiler cannot be reduced to the taskbar. If you close it and reopen, then reducing to taskbar is possible.

Yeah, that seems to be a bug in Windows when you use the SetForegroundWindow API (or if it is because of  the ShowWindow API, I forget which).

I think I have mentioned this somewhere before, in regards to ProfilerQuery. Anyway, in my experience you don't have to close Profiler, just click on the Profiler icon in the taskbar, and the window becomes resizeable again. Annoying, but I don't think there is anything I can do about it.

Thanks for reminding me, though. That's another thing that I should mention in the help file.

Just to put some perspective on the issue of misspelled overviews:

After having reviewed the first 400 profiles in my collection, I have found (and tagged) 66 profiles with incorrect overviews.
That's 1 out of 6. And I have over 6000 profiles in in my collection ...

Same here: out of the first 100 checked, I found 14 overviews with errors. A lot of them look like OCR mistakes...

Also, if you can, for the next release, I would appreciate to be able to choose the image directory, as I have several different databases.

Thanks! Another great tool

Noted. Shouldn't be a problem.

Found a bug. Didn't realize that Disc ID could be 9 characters. Probably only in older contributions?
Will be fixed in next release.

OverviewCheck 2.3.0

I added a small, but hopefully useful, feature.

If you check "Show only coll.nr", the program updates the from-number with the number of the last shown profile, and remembers this for the next time. This makes it easy to take up where you left off the previous time you used the program.

It's one of those things that upon reflection seems so obvious that I have to ask myself: "Myself, why didn't you think of this from the beginning?" And enbarrasingly enough I have no excuse. I just have to console myself with the fact that no one suggested it before I realized my mistake myself.

I guess that either the summer heat makes me think slower, or I'm just getting old. 
Please say it's the former.

Thanks for the tool and all of the enhancements you've provided. Some of the errors it points out are so difficult to spot, I've had to repeatedly switch screens to find them to correct.

Once again, a great tool. Thank you.

Sorry to be against everybody, but I have a problem with this new feature. I had already this function checking the "verified" box. And I left some profiles unverified because I wanted to modify them since I was not pleased with the text. But now, I can't find those unverified profiles since the program "thinks" I have seen them sufficiently 
Is it possible to go back to previous version (it's no more on your site)?

Isn't it sufficient that you can set back the starting number in Settings? Or just uncheck "Show only coll.nr"? Or am I missing something?

I have been playing with the idea of rewriting OverviewCheck to use Hunspell for spell checking instead of using the one built-in to the WPF textbox. Since Hunspell uses the same dictionaries as OpenOffice and LibreOffice it is much easier to add dictionaries. And I really hate how the current program cannot tell British English from US English, for example.

There are several stumbling blocks, though. I would have to use a RichTextBox since there is no way to programmatically set any kind of underlining in a normal textbox. And using a RichTextBox adds quite some complexity to the whole thing, not least how to add an appropriate underlining. Normal underlining is a solid line the same color as the text. Not good enough. I tried to find a way to do a nice red squiggly underlining, but I couldn't find a way to do it that looked good. But after much googling and some trial and error I came up with a dashed underline that seemed to work.



It looks like it is going to be quite a lot of work to put all this together. It's hard to resist a challenge, but at the same time there is a limit to how much time I'm willing to spend when the current program still works fairly well. So no promises.
