I never number box-set-contens and also not child profiles.
As long as the new ones are part of the ordered- or wish-list, they don't have numbers, but moving them to the owned-list, every single profile gets a number.

So my request is the idea to create kind of a checkbox in the settings like:
"[X] Don't number child profiles /box set contents"

Maybe two seperate checkboxes for child profiles and the contents.

The reason why I would like to have this option is that I get boxsets quite often. And after moving them to "owned" I have to check the numbers-box for several profiles. Not only that this quite often feels like wasted time, but still keeping the wrong key on the keyboard, suddenly all profiles above are flagged (and the number of my profiles costs time once again).

I hope that I am not the only one with this issue and maybe there is allready any feature in the options I only didn't recognize so far?

All you collectors: Tell me your opinion about this idea and finally to all the creator's-staff: Let me know if this realization might be possible!

Thankx in advance

possible work-around:
Use the Bulk Edit Plugin
Flag the profiles in question, open them in BE, assign collection number -1, done.

"assign collection number -1, done"

For me this sounds this way: The automatic number e. g. is 6132 so -1 it is 6131 but still a number.
Or does "-1" simply say "delete"?

Du sollst eintippen, nicht subtrahieren!

Not only delete, but it checks the 'None' field you see besides the Collection-Number field in DVD Profiler.
