When you enter data into Readerware products, you will notice that several fields are lists. You select the appropriate item from the list. Fields that work this way include:

  • Format
  • Category
  • Condition
  • Location
  • etc.

So how do you maintain these lists? It is actually very easy.

You can add, replace and delete items using the list editor. Right click in the field and select Edit from the popup menu.

Mac OS X users, hold down the Control key while clicking to display the popup menu.

In the list editor you can:

  • Add new entries
  • Update existing entries
  • Delete unused entries
  • Clean up unused entries
  • Merge entries

Full instructions are in the online help.
