    1. If I start a new roster with multiple forces, or add a force to a working roster
    2. after adding a new unit, the new unit will not necessarily go to the force I'm adding it to. i.e. Click a unit to force 1 HQ, select unit. Unit shows up in force 2 HQ instead. Vice-versa the same issue.

  2. I really like your new support system, but credit card is not popular everywhere. Thus I ask you to add other payment options like paypal. If this is already possible somehow I apologize, I cannot seem to find how.

    I won’t make any promises, but I may look into this in the future. It makes it more complicated to add more payment options to the website.

    That said, you can purchase passes for the desktop version on mobile platforms through Google Play etc. Perhaps this will work for you?

  3. Allow multiple entries to be selected for copying and pasting in the catalogue editor rather than just one at a time

  4. There are times when a repository removes certain old catalogues such as when a newer edition of the book comes out. If Battlescribe can remember which catalogue is provided by which repository, it can remove old catalogues that are no longer supplied by the repository.

  5. For example:

    I have modifiers to set the maxselections of jump packs to 0 if the model selects a bike. Adding a field to name the modifier

    'Model cannot select a jump pack and a bike'

    Would improve legibility over the standard message of

    'Model has too many bikes
    set maxselections to 0(repeating)'

    When a user tries to select the two options in the roster editor.

  6. I think you should be able to group your lists by things like race, points, or (custom) events. Also a filter option so I can filter all lists for race points and (custom) event.
    I just find I have 100's of lists and it's hard sometimes to find the one I want

  7. I am new to Battle Scribe. For testing and learning I created a copy of a Game System and catalog. The catalog was still assigned to the old Game System. I was able to change it by manually editing the .cat file and changing the GUID the catalog was pointing to.

  8. When the program shows that a list is valid or invalid, it should show this in the output somewhere. Maybe under the roster name and point value print Valid, or Invalid because (and list the errors in the list.)

  10. I can build a 1 or 2 detachment roster. But if I try to add a 3rd detachment it crashes. If I try to build a new roster with 3 space marine detachments it fails to load and eventually the app stops responding. I've only noticed this problem with space marines, other factions I play work fine.

  11. Every time I add a spearhead to my list the program crashes. I’ve tried making a new list from scratch and adding to existing lists. Every time I use a spearhead in addition with other detachments it crashes. All units are taking a LONG time to load.

  12. When selecting to make a 40k Space marine list it is very very slow . Creating a list takes a very long time usually take g 10 to 30 seconds to make selections or loading the list.

  16. I recently "Supported" Battlescribe to enable me to sync rosters between my iPhone and my desktop PC. I have setup the Dropbox sync between my desktop and iPhone successfully. New rosters created and changes made to existing rosters are synced from iPhone to desktop, however changes made to the rosters on the desktop are not accessible on the iPhone. I deleted all my rosters from both desktop and iPhone and created a new roster on the desktop. It is copied across via dropbox and I can see it in dropbox on the iPhone but Battlescribe does not pick it up.

  17. When printing the html list, units sheets will be split in the middle when reaching the end of the page.

    This can be avoided by simply adding an option "try to not split units", which, when ticked, add the following to the generated html file (line 5):
    .rootSelection,.category,.summary { page-break-inside: avoid; }

  18. Everything takes so long. It wasn't this bad months ago, now it runs like a dog. Roster list is slow. Roster changes are slow, roster rendering is slow.

    I know this is connected to the internet cause if I lose connectivity I'm stuck for minutes until a reconnect. I often have to go to airplane mode to get it responsive. This updating need to be non blocking, and background.

  19. Loading time has increased to ridiculously long times. I have tried everything I can think of, cache deletions, reinstalling, monitoring processes. Etc.
