Mylar only checks for story arc issues in 2 places: your watchlist, and the specific story arc directory for a given story arc. Dropping them into your watch folder isn't going to do anything unless you have those series on your watchlist, in which case Mylar would post-process them, mark them accordingly and then upon a refresh of the story arc it would reload the Status'. The 'best' way is to have the series on your watchlist, have Mylar post-process the issues that you have - and then the arc's will handle themselves. You can also put the issues in the relevant story arc directory, and it 'should' pick up the issues and mark them accordingly, but I haven't fully tested that portion out as of yet so it's probably hit / miss.Tucker28 wrote:I have a question about reading lists. I have Blackest Night in the reading list manager, and a couple of issues are already there. All the rest of them are listed as wanted or snatched, most as wanted. However, I had downloaded the entire set some time ago. I have tagged them all with the ComicTagger GUI, both CR and CBL, and then dropped them into my watch folder, but they aren't being pulled into the library. Any idea how best to handle this?
Just don't check off the option to copy all the issues into the story arc directory. If mylar finds an issue that corresponds to a story arc (you have to be on the story arc screen to initiate a search for a given arc anyways) it will do one of two things depending on if that option is enabled/disabled. Enabled, it will put the issues in your normal watchlist series directory if the series exists on your watchlist, and then it will also copy the issue into the story arc directory. If the issues for a series aren't in your watchlist, it would just put in into your story arc directory.Disabled, it will put the issues only in your normal watchlist series directory if the series exists on your watchlist, otherwise it will just dump them into the story arc directory.Also, I see the option of putting all the issues in the story arc directory and that is perfect for the tie-ins for series that I don't normally want, but I don't want issues from my Green Lantern/Green Lantern Corps directories duplicated in the story arc directory. How best to handle this? If crossovers weren't that common, I would just use symbolic links in the story arcs directory and have the best of both worlds as the issue would be under the main titles, but I could access them through the story arc folder as well. But crossovers are frequent in the comic world and I would drive myself bonkers trying to keep up with those links.
(That's the desired behaviour - if you discover differently, please let me know so I can fix things so they work accordingly)
And symlinks would work on nix-based OS', and could in theory be managed by Mylar - but symlinks on Windows are a nightmare, and managing them even worse, so that's primarily the reason I haven't pursued that any further thus far.
