Hi there,

All apps have been updated! Check all the new stuff:

YACReader for desktops 9.14.2


  • Add setting to disable scroll animations and scroll smoothing, recommended if you are using a touch pad or if you find the mouse wheel behaviour laggy.
  • Fix missing translation when opening YACReader from YACReaderLibrary.


  • Fix "Set type" context menu the grid view for folders.
  • Add a different versioning strategy for databases. DBs version will change only when the structure changes and not when YACReader version changes.
  • Add support for updating libraries automatically with various settings to chose from. During automatic library updates most actions are disabled, you can stop an update by clicking on the busy indicator next to the Libraries title.
  • Improve content reloading. Navigation and selection state is no longer reseted after content changes (e.g. library updates, tags edits, etc.).
  • The app will try to move comics and folders to the trash bin when deletions are requested, if the file system used doesn't support trash bin the files will be removed permanetly.
  • Add menu to choose what columns are displayed in the table comics view (do a right click on the header to show it). The view has new 3 new headers to choose from (Series, Volume and Story arc).
  • Migrate `number` and `arcNumber` data types to `TEXT`. This only affects databases created before 9.13 and fixes problems with some formats of numbers (e.g. 1.10).
  • Propage update date to all the parent folders.
  • Fix crash when resorting comics in reading lists in table view view and the comic flow is hidden.
  • Fix cover loading in QML views due to malformed URLs.
  • Improve style of the webui status page.
  • Fix type not being propagated to new files in a folder.
  • Mark the current type in the context menu so the user can know the current type.

New features

YACReaderLibrary 9.13


  • Add shortcuts for moving by one the double page mode to the left/right, by default CTRL + SHIFT + LEFT, and, CTRL + SHIFT + RIGHT. Remember that you can change any shortcut in the shortcuts dialog. You can also achieve this functionality using the "Go to page flow" and chossing the page you want to be on the left/right (depending on the reading mode comic/manga).


  • Avoid showing stale information in the server config dialog by updating the connection information when the dialog is opened.
  • Add new metadata support, it improves compatibility with ComicInfo.xml
  • Add support for showing a "recently added/updated" indicator. The number of days to consider something recent can be configured in the settings.
  • Improved comic metadata dialog.
  • Add textual tags support that can be queried through the search engine.
  • Make = in the search engine work as : does.
  • Add new operators to the search engine: exact match ==, <, >, <=, >=.
  • Support filtering by since/before dates in the search engine. e.g. added > 7 means recent content added since 7 days ago, and added < 30 means content added before the last 30 days.
  • Show the full library path in the dialog shown to warn about missing libraries.
  • Fix scroll bar in the info comics view in Qt6 builds.
  • New Recent smart list, it will show recent comics added.
  • Try to detect changed files with the same name on libraries updates, there is also a new setting to decide if the modified date of a file should be used as an indicator to know if the file has been changed since it was added (disabled by default).
