Hey, did you ever figure out a way to do this?
I'm also looking for a solution. Right now, I use a slightly complicated
method. Instead of doing a mass-update, I do a mass-upload of the items with
new remarks. But first, I change the quantity of all those items to 1. When mass-uploading,
I make sure that I select it to use the new remarks rather than the old remarks
when consolidating lots. I then go back to brickstock, change all the quantities
to -1, then do a mass-upload again to delete the ones I just added. But now the
remarks have been updated to the new remarks.
If you haven't found a better way, hope this helps.
If you have found a better way, please let me know.

Thanks,
David

  Not sure where to post this so I choose Off Topic.

Dose anyone have any suggestions on how to change the remarks field in bulk?
What I mean is this, when using BrickStock, after you download your store inventory,
you can change the remarks of multiple items at a time to the same remark. The
problem is that BrickStock will not include items where all you have done is
changed the remarks field when using the Export Mass Update unless you change
the quantity also.

The reason I want to do this is because, like many others, I use the remarks
field to identify where our inventory is located and now I need to change pretty
much all of them. I know I can delete my inventory in stages and add the remarks
through BrickStock but I dont want to have to delete my inventory each time I
want to change the remark's field in bulk.

Any ideas? I would even be willing to pay for a solution especially if someone
has changed the code in BrickStock to allow this or if you have have a solution
you use with another program like Excel.

  Do lot ID #'s get recycled in the BrickLink system?

AFAIK: No, except when you explicitly tell the system to retain lots with quantity
0. These lots can get new quantity filled in with the original price and lot
number retained.

On a technical level: most likely this field is an 'auto-increment field'
in the database system that Bricklink uses, and the software not even touches
these numbers.

Studio is built on a gaming platform, so the video card is critical.


That makes sense!

I started a YouTube show called 'Bricks & Libations' where I do a cocktail
recipe and then enjoy my drink while building some LEGO. A completely improvised

  I love Stud.io - I think its the best LEGO CAD software out there.

But since the last release, it seems to randomly Freeze and never come back.
I'm running up-to-date Windows 10, and it could be my video card, but Stud.io
is the only program that does this.

There's no rhyme or reason when it does this. It can happen after running
for several hours and it can be as soon as 30 seconds from starting. I have
to kill the process - it never comes back. While it is unresponsive, it is using
a lot of CPU (as if it is stuck in a loop.) I can open it, not touch anything,
leave my computer and come back an hour later and its frozen. Or I can have
several large models open, be moving the viewpoint all around and have no problems.
There isn't anything I can narrow down that makes this reproduce-able.

Again, this MIGHT be just my computer itself and am curious if I am the only
one seeing this.


OK - I know this is month's old and NOT in the correct location - but I started
this thread here so I'll Update it here.

I only saw where one other person was having this problem so I suspected it was
my 8 year old video card (an AMD card).
I purchased a cheap, new (albeit 2017 version) Radeon card and installed it a
month ago. And all my random Stud.io freezing problems went away. I know Radeon
is supported by Stud.io and AMD is not (yet), but I Don't think that is the
problem.
Stud.io was the only program that had issues, but I'll chalk this up to gremlins
in an old video card.
Very happy to have Stud.io up, running, and consistent again!

Hi! Just saw your post. Unfortunately, from what we can tell, there is not a
large image API call. We've also noticed that large images do not exit for
all variations/colors and as such, is probably why an API call does not exist.

Hope this helps!

  Hello,

While playing with the Bricklink API I came across a call to retrieve the picture
URL of an item:

https://api.bricklink.com/api/affiliate/v1/item_image_list

By specifying a JSON body like this:

[
{
"item": {
"no": "ac016",
"type": "Minifig"
},
"color_id": 0
},
{
"item": {
"no": "col18-10",
"type": "Set"
},
"color_id": 0
},
{
"item": {
"no": "3005",
"type": "Part"
},
"color_id": 55
}
]

I get a list of URL's of the images of these items in a certain color, although
always the tiny versions.

{"meta":{"description":"OK","message":"OK","code":200},"data":[{"item":{"no":"3005","type":"PART"},"color_id":55,"image_url":"//img.bricklink.com/P/55/3005.jpg"},{"item":{"no":"ac016","type":"MINIFIG"},"color_id":0,"image_url":"//img.bricklink.com/M/ac016.jpg"},{"item":{"no":"col18-10","type":"SET"},"color_id":0,"image_url":"//img.bricklink.com/S/col18-10.jpg"}]}

But in Bricklink there are also links to larger images:

http://img.bricklink.com/PL/30322.jpg

There does not seem to be a logical way to deduce these larger formats from the
tiny ones. For example sometimes they are gif's, sometimes jpg's.

Does anyone have an idea on how to retrieve these URL's?

Thanks,

Geert

We had to change our name when we registered as an LLC in the US. We changed
the name in BL as well. Google lost us and it took nearly 2 years for them to
reconnect to our store in the search engine, so I wouldn't recommend changing
if you can help it.


Also, when I first say your name my initial thought was, "Cool, they sell the
bricks they aren't using from their hobby." I didn't think anything
negative about the name.

Just my 2 cents.

1. Open your model in Stud.io
2. Select "Model" - "Model Info"
3. Select "Add To Wanted List" - this will open up BrickLink. Make sure you are
logged in. Stud.io may ask you for log-in details; enter them.
4. Select "Proceed to verify items"
5. Select "Add to Wanted List" at the bottom of the page (may need to scroll
down).

Voila.

Thank you for your post. The replies to my post have helped a lot. As for the
guards, I am not sure why they were there. One when I was wheeled out of my room
or from imagining that would followed me and the guy in the hazmat suit pushing
me. By the elevator was any armed guard, and down the hall was another. This
is all happening in a military hospital. It also took a key for the elevator.
The guns were probably part of their regular accouterments. My doctor said
it is military over reaction,

So, you got armed sponge baths? Lucky man!

Maybe it was multi-purpose.  Or you can still believe that it was and the doctor
was just jealous
