It looks fantastic!
Hi Arend,

I don't understanding what is happening there. Would you be able to email me via the contact page?

I'll need some screenshots / a copy of your databases to figure this out.

Hi Gary,
Sorry for the delay in replying. I upgraded to the full version and it still hasn't picked up my custom fields. Does that mean I must re-load all1,400 records that had custom fields on 1.4?
Kind Regards,
Hi Gary,

No problem - hope you had a good holiday  :).

I shall keep an eye open and share when it's ready.


Hi John,

Sorry for the slow response. We have just returned from holiday - I didn't have any login details for the forum with me.

The CSV import feature isn't quite ready. Maybe share the CSV after I have released that?

Hopefully will be out in the next few weeks (free update).

Hi Gary,

I have exported my Tamiya paint stock table to CSV, and have removed location and stock data. I'm happy to share it, but should I wait and do it again in case there are changes to the table as you mentioned above?



The following error occurs when saving a view and subsequently opening the tab for the table.

    Index and length must refer to a location within the string.
    Parameter name: length

Cause / Steps to Reproduce:

An invalid view is causing the program to break when the 'Subset' buttons are being created on the record list screen. These are the bottom left buttons on the records list (e.g. for Kits and Accessories they are 'Wanted', 'Owned' etc).

KitBase shouldn't have allowed this when you saved the view. A fix is planned in the next release.

The sequence of steps that cause the issue are as follows:

1) Adding or Customising a View

2) Setting the first part of 'Subset' to a field (bottom right of the View Designer screen)

3) Leaving the second part of 'Subset' (after =) empty

Normally both parts would be filled in, so that the 'Subset' buttons restrict the list (e.g. 'Status = Owned' on Kits and Accessories).

If you avoid using the 'Subset' options in the way described above (first box filled, second box empty) you shouldn't encounter the problem.


The invalid view needs to be renamed or removed.


1 - Start KitBase and open your database

2 - Go into 'File / Show Database in Explorer'

3 - Go into the 'Views' folder

   Views are prefixed with the Table Id. The standard table Id's in KitBase are:

   Kits and Accessories: d7ea2724-ecca-4acb-86f4-5e16f210a1d3
   References: 610306e1-3251-49dd-b4cf-20d80c87102f
   Paint Stock:f4d2905c-1ae4-4d80-8403-c85495060c63

5 - Switch to 'Details' view in Explorer and sort by 'Date Modified' Descending (indicator arrow down)

6 - Look for the most recently changed view, prefixed with the table Id from the list above

7 - Rename the view, e.g. place an _ (underscore) in front

8 - Try closing the table tab in KitBase and re-open via the link on 'Database Home'

9 - If the tab opens without error, you have found the problematic view. You can leave it renamed or delete it.
     If not, repeat the rename of each view until the tab opens successfully

10 - Any views that you renamed without fixing the problem can be changed back


Permanent fix underway. To be released in v2.0.7.0, hopefully during late August / early September (2017).

Hi Hutch,

The printing function is provided via the Report screen.

Click the 'Report' button, next to Export on the record list toolbar.

Glad you found out how to rename fields.

Hi Gary

Don't worry about the 'Started' tab, I've worked it out and sorted it.....  Happy days!!!!

Cheers Gary.

I'm learning my way around the software so I will get there in the end.

Couple more things;

I'm still unable to print a report or even see a print preview.  I know it's difficult to know what is wrong with my set up but is there something I might be missing?  I have to export as a csv file and print via Excel.

Also, I was wondering if it's possible to change the 'Built' tick-box to a 'Started' tick-box?  I use KitBase to monitor my stash and if it's built I remove it from the database.  At the moment I do tick it to indicate the kit has been started but it would be nicer if the option could have a different title on my screen.
