How to find and download series data
This tutorial gives you an introduction on how to find the comic series you are looking for and how to download it.
Three easy steps to download your favourite comic series
Open the maintenance view
In order to find an download series data you have to open the maintenance view. From there you can access the search view by tapping "Download series data" at the top of the screen.
Enter the series name
Once you opened the view to download series data you'll see a text field to enter the series name. You can either enter the full name of the series or just parts of it. It doesn't matter in which order you specify the search terms.
Assume you would like to download The Dreaming (DC, United States, 1996). Enter "dreaming" (without the quotes) in the text field and tab search on the virtuel keyboard.
Download the series data
Browse through the list of search results. Each entry contains the name of the series in the first line and the name of the publisher, the country of publication and the year when the first issue was published in the second line. Now tap the list entry that displays "Dreaming, The" and "DC (United States, 1996)". A download button will slide in from the right. Tap that button to start the download.
During the download a couple of progress messages will be displayed. You can cancel the download by tapping the cancel button at any time.
After the download finished a check mark will be displayed at the left-hand side of the list entry. This check mark will appear each time this particular series is part of the search results telling you, that you already downloaded the series (at least partially in case you canceled the download).
Some things you should keep in mind
There are always a number of ways to specify search terms. Here are some hints that should help you to produce the right search results.
Keep your search terms simple.
Comic series are only listed in the search results, if all search terms match the series' titel. Thus, longer search terms produce fewer or even no search results. In these cases try to reduce the number of words in your search term.
Alternatively you could let the search assistent tell which combinations of search are more successful than other. Take a look at the search assistent tutorial for details.
Restrict your search terms to the series' title.
The search term is only applied to the series' title when searching the database. So don't include any other information in your search. As an example, you can not search for "amazing spider-man volume 2", because the volume information isn't part of the series' title.
Be sure to use the correct spelling.
A lot of times searches don't produce any result at all, because users misspell the series' title. A good example is searching for "xmen" instead of "x-men" or "spiderman" instead of "spider-man". So if you result list is empty, check the spelling.
