... for your local database.

Of course, but we are here in the general discussion forum, not the contribution forum, so every solution may be shared...

The drawback is that the scan isn't searchable. But if you feel that whatever info you enter there is more important, then go for it.

The overview field is searchable, so you can enter a text with all the keywords that you want. Much more useful than to recopy what is on back cover...

In the layout I use, I have a scan of the back cover which gives a very good copy of the "DVD" overview, with all details, fonts, colors and spelling mistakes... So the overview field can be used to have something useful concerning the movie, without advertising nor spoilers...

It would need a complete data base redesign.

This has been discussed for more than 10 years and we never saw it. I'm sure it will never happen. And we have more important things to solve than "accuracy" of credits : linking of "same actor/different names", and non linking of "same name/different actors".
Credits do not always represent reality (= who really played or worked in the movie), so recopying them exactly is of little interest. And even when they are correct, we transform them with Invelos rules (change letters), and introduce errors that they have not, making them incorrect...
IMDb gives correct linking and generally correct names. Even with its errors, it is far more correct than our mess (cannot call it a database).

pour alain60
Je ne sais pas comment faire pour faire un rapport permettant d'éditer toute la collection classée par genre. En plus, souvent un film appartient à plusieurs genres.  Par contre on peut créer un filtre par genre (faire un tri sur la collection, et enregistrer ce tri) , et imprimer un rapport en utilisant ce filtre. Répéter l'opération pour chaque genre souhaité.

Pour diane.r
D'abord faire une sauvegarde de la base de données du PC.
Puis il faut créer une deuxième base de données (menu Fichier/ouvrir une base de donnée/nouvelle base) et télécharger dans cette nouvelle base ce qu'il y a online. Faire une sauvegarde, avec un autre nom que la précédente pour éviter les confusions.
Réouvrir la base de donnée initiale du PC, et y restaurer la deuxième sauvegarde avec les options restaurer des profils spécifiques/sélectionner tout (très important, sinon on écrase tout). Les profils seront alors ajoutés aux existants.

If you have a backup, you also can open a new empty database, and restore there your backup.

What a disgrace to this fine movie

It seems that you appreciated this movie  .
As for me, I think I have never been more disappointed by a movie in all my life  . As a Star Wars fan I waited for this movie to answer at least a part of the questions we had after Episode 7, but none got any answer. The Force now can be used by anybody to do anything (even fly in space vacuum as Superman after having been frozen) without any learning. Humour is clumsy and kills the atmosphere  . The way the main villain disappears is totally not credible, and Luke's behaviour is just the opposite of how he behaved before...

Rian Johnson just killed the saga...   

Can we hope that Episode 9 will repair some of this disaster ? I really doubt since many doors were closed by Johnson  . At least I know I'll never spend any penny for this sad guy's future trilogy...

Thanks for this tool.

I normalize all my cover images (width, height, frame for blu-rays), and I used your tool to check if everything was correct. Found a dozen of images to modify 

A little improvement. Can't the program memorize image and xml file folders ?

I voted no. For those actors, their job while filming was clearly not a "voice only" job. They did not dubbed drawings, they really played in front of cameras.

we're better off without him.

Well, I don't know. I was one of those who disagreed most with Skip's ideas, and he often insulted me. But I think he just believed he was right and he fought for his ideas, but was not a bad guy. I remember that after a hot discussion, he proposed me to sign as a friend to discuss "normally". In fact, we have here really bad guys who hate other people without giving any reason, and those are much worse than Skip...

It might be more confusing than helpful.

Well, something very important for a user is the facility to use those tools. ProfilerQuery is powerful AND rather easy to use, and I think it presents a good compromise. Making it more complex may make it less usable, even if it can do more things. I speak as a user that loves play with data, but has very few skills at programming.
