Technical support / Re: moving library to new computer
« on: September 25, 2018, 08:45:47 AM »
Hi,
Let me rephrase my question: when I create a new series for a coin, which is not in the common database currently, and adding Price information for it  - where this Price information is being saved, which file and location? It is *NOT* in ECD file for collection, it is somewhere else.

I'm talking about OS X version 4.0.1.38.

Thank you,
Sergey

Hi,
I'm moving my coin library to new computer (OS X): I copied "Document/Exact Change" folder to new computer, and app opened it fine, however all "Pricing" data for series/coins I entered myself are gone.

Did I missed anything?

Thanks,
Sergey

My collection is intact, seemingly, but where would I get version of Exact Change other than trial? I suspect that was a reason I couldn't use it with my current collection. I totally forgot how I got it first time I bought it, I requested digital download, and there is no paper trail of any kind.

Technical support / Problem upgrading Mac version
« on: February 14, 2018, 03:08:19 PM »
Hi,
I tried to upgrade version I had with the new Mac OS version, and apparently it didn't go well: I downloaded new version from the web site, unpackaged and tried to run it goes to the main screen to select the coin file, and when I try to select it crashes. It doesn't let create a new coin file as well.

Is it fixable, or I blowed away my entire collection?

Thank you,
Sergey

U.S. coin collecting / Re: Commemorative quarters

Well, there are series like Confederation or Values (or many others) in Canadian 25 cents issues, which could be alternatively described in a similar way. Or Cities of Military Glory Russian 10 rubles.

However, it's not a problem, was just a bit surprised.

I found it, thanks.
Why it's so different from similar commemorative series for other countries ?

U.S. coin collecting / Commemorative quarters
« on: November 05, 2017, 06:14:30 PM »
I can't find any commemorative quarters of US series, except Isabella quarter (in US Commemorative).
I have a load of 50 States and America the Beautiful commemorative quarters, do I have to enter all of them manually?
I have Mac OS 3.0.0.33 version.

Thanks,
Sergey

Hi,
You don't need that screen recording, do you ? The one I talked in the previous post ?

Hi,
Thank you for informative reply ! It certainly brought some clarity.
Regarding checkbox issue - I recorded a screen session which demonstrates this issue, I can send it to e-mail you provided, but file size is 166M - is it all right to send it as attachment ?

Regarding default values for custom field.
Say, I'd like to add a new field to existing collection - text box and picked list - called "Edge", which would have values "plain", "ridged", or "patterned". Normally, once added it would be blank for all existing entries, so I'd have to go to each entry and set it. I'd like to have an opportunity to make it by default "plain" for all entries, that I only have to change it for selected once, and not to go through all of them.

You clarify most of my concerns about updated series, however, how would it work in this case: for some of the coins I noted that material is not correct, so I changed it (I think it was from Nickel/Brass to Nickel/Steel, but it doesn't matter). When/if this series get updated, considering it would still be Nickel/Brass in update - would my change be lost ?

Thank you,
Sergey

Technical support / notes/questions about Mac version of Exact Change
« on: October 16, 2017, 02:11:44 PM »
Hi,
After using Exact Change (Mac OS 3.0.0.33) for about a month, I can say that I am satisfied with my purchase, but I have  a few notes :

Bugs :
 - Application hangs about 10% of the time in Series -> Coins tab, after one tries to enter an entry, then undo. Canít say exactly what conditions are, itís pretty random, happen to me under mild load, high load. Need to kill it as a result, after that it starts normally. It hang while I was writing this post :)
 - Custom-defined checkboxes from Exact Change -> User defined data fields, does not work : one can define it just fine, but after check-marking it, it doesnít get saved. Very easy to reproduce, happens all the time when I triy it.

Inconveniences :
 - After entering a new coin in series, saving it, then removing it, item number does not get re-used. Not a problem per say, but after doing a few mistakes total number of entries in my collection is not at all matches with last item number.
 - Each collection file has its own item numbering. Iíd very much like to separate collection files for myself and my son, but still maintain overall numbering;
 - Related to the above: Iíd like to create two folders in collection files, and populate each with different set of countries. Thus separating two relatively independent, but commonly tracked collection. Just to be clear, my son is collecting coins with Elizabeth II portrait from different countries, Iím collecting coins from former Soviet Union, set of countries for each I completely distinct. I didnít find a way to organize for this scenario.
 - It would be nice to be able to edit/remove not just custom fields in Series -> Coins screen, but pre-defined as well. And/or be able to re-arrange them on the screen in desired order.
 - When new custom field is defined for already existing collection, it would be nice to define a default of some kind, that all the series got it, and then modify it in selected places. Right now, to have it everywhere Iíd need to go over all coins, and set it there. Itís a bit tedious even for 100 entries I already have there.

Questions :
 - I updated a few pre-existing series, changing names, and correcting some mistakes. I wonder, what would happen when/if series I modified gets update with software update? In particular, if I change its name ?
 - I added a few new coin series which were not there before. What happen when theyíd be added with software update ?

Thank you,
Sergey

Hi,
I'm not complaining about message, and the fact that you're banning based on some rules, I accept it. Besides I already have account as you can see :)

All I'm asking, is be able to get to forum just following link in regular way, and not using incognito mode from under VPN.

Is it possible, or I need to keep doing it like I'm doing now ? After all, I'm legitimate user of your software, and I have questions.

Thank you
Sergey
