Comic Zeal: Finder: Include comics not in series

Currently the Finder only includes comics found inside a series "box". Some comics are a single issue and it doesn't make sense to have them in a series "box". These cases are not included in the Finder results as it currently works. They should be included under a generic heading like "Other Results" for example.

    Unless you have limited the finder to only find comics in the current series (which is the default setting) it should find them from everywhere.

    It should also find comics from everywhere if the finder is at the top level. The generic heading name is 'From the top level'.

    I've made some further tests after your comment. The issue seems more complicated. Here are the results, I hope they help.

    • CZ - 1 Init Setup.png: Init setup
    • CZ - 2 Finder settings.png: Finder setup
    • CZ - 3 Results.png: Results of CZ - 2 case: Standalone comic is ignored
    • CZ - 4 Setup New Series 2 comics.png: An extra series with the standalone comic plus one more
    • CZ - 5 Results New Series 2 comics.png: Results of CZ - 5 case: Results from all 3 series (correct), not clear to me why black hole - 04 is included instead of Understanding Comics. Order of two comics inside the Test series makes no difference, black hole - 04 is always returned.
    • CZ - 6 Results New Series 1 comic.png: Results of having a series with a single comic in the Test series box: Comic is ignored completely.

    It looks like Understanding Comics is ignored in any kind of filtering? Pulling other comics out from their series gets them included in the Finder results, look at CZ - 7 Results Other Standalone comic.png

    Antonis, for image 3. Standalone comic is not included because it has been started.
