Recollector User’s Guide
(This version of the User’s Guide documents Version 2.3.6 of Recollector.)
Recollector is a flexible and powerful program that lets you organize and manage information about your collections. Collections of any type can be cataloged with Recollector, since you are able to choose exactly the kinds of information that you want to maintain about each of your collections. The program lets you describe and enter data about the items in your collection, using text and images (as well as audio or video clips if you so desire). The collection database that you create can then be viewed, sorted, searched, printed, etc. You are not restricted to creating a single collection database - you can create as many collection databases as you want with Recollector.
Note: Recollector was previously named the “M.R.P. Collection Manager”. Though its name has changed, the underlying program is the same, so if you were using an earlier version of the program, with the M.R.P. Collection Manager name, you can upgrade to the latest version and you will get not only the latest features, but also the new “Recollector” name.
Upgrading from Demo Mode to a fully registered version
If you have downloaded and installed the Demo Mode version of Recollector, the program will be fully functional, except that in demo mode a collection database is restricted to a maximum of 25 records. To upgrade from this evaluation version to a fully registered, unrestricted version, purchase a license at www.MapRecord.com/Recollector.html. You will receive a registration key via e‑mail. Enter this key in the registration dialog, which can be accessed from either:
· The Recollector Control Window, via the Register (remove demo mode restrictions) button.
· The collection window, via the About Recollector / Product Registration choice on the Help menu.
