Is there a way to add child profiles to a title if you choose not to add them the first time you add a title to your collection?

Example: I added Wolverine (Unleashed Extended Edition) to my collection some time ago and at the time was only counting the titles in my collection.  Recently I re-evaluated how I want to manage my collection and decided I wanted a physical count of discs, including those in child profiles (like DVDs in a Blu-Ray/DVD combo).  And I know this title has three child profiles.  I would like to be able to add them after-the-fact.

Right now what I'm doing is removing the title from my collection and re-adding it via UPC and adding the child profiles at THAT time, but it's a bit more time consuming.  Just wondering if there was a quicker way.

Highlight the profile you want to add child profiles for.

On the Toolbar, click on Online, then Refresh DVD from Invelos, then Check for Child Profiles.
Or Control + F12 on your keyboard.

Thank you for the response.  Unfortunately this didn't work for me.  After refreshing the profile, I did not see any options anywhere to check for child profiles and Ctrl+F12 was unresponsive.

Is there possibly a setting I have in place that would prevent this from working correctly?

Try to "Flag" the profile, not just highlight it! Then go to Collection>Flagged>Check for Child Profiles.

If nothing gets downloaded, that means there are no child profiles associated wtih that profile in the online database.

You may also need to update the "parent" profile to download the "boxset contents".

There does appear to be a problem here. I located a profile in my collection that "should have" a child profile, but there was nothing in the "boxset contents" field. I tried to do a preview of updates to see if the online had the child profile disc ID in the "boxset contents" field. The preview indicated that no updates to my local were required, which told me the online profile ALSO did not have the "child profile" in the "boxset contents" field.

I then searched the online for the child profile and was surprised to see that it actually existed as a disc ID profile with the correct cover images. So I added it to my local and added it locally to the parent profile.

I then attempted to contribute the parent profile to add the "boxset content" information to the online database, and low and behold, it told me there were no changes to be contributed?

Something is not working correctly here!

Noticed that too some time ago. Must be a bug. Removing the parent profile and then adding it again including child profiles might work, if I remember correctly.

That's my workaround, not knowing there was a quicker way to do it (but finding out through others that the feature is no longer there).
