    • Add the ability to include icons/photos for army and units

      This could include Army logos/banners for the roster output heading as well as photos of particular units or models.

        I really like this idea. I’ll need to investigate how best to implement it.

        I’ve modified the suggestion to include allowing images for individual army selections as well (ie photo of the character/unit).

      • Allow position of entries to be defined

        At the moment, entries are sorted alphanumerically. I think it would be useful to allow the data file author to define exactly the order in which entries are listed. If no order is defined, then it can default back to the alphanumeric order.

          Initially I thought this would be a problem to implement – should a data file author dictate to a user what order the entries appear?

          Thinking more about it however, I think the solution here is to let the user decide. Instead of the data file author rearranging the entries in the data files, I think it would be better to allow the user to rearrange the selections in their list.

        • Allow profile / rules to be printed on separate pages

          I Just would like the ability to have a clean print out, where parts of the Profile or Rules Summaries are not cut off in the middle.

            I’m not confident that this can be done with any degree of reliability. It’s an unfortunate downside of using HTML for output – not all browsers work the same way, and some don’t pay attention to the printing/page break CSS.

            I will implement the page break stuff in the HTML output and I guess we’ll see how it works out. Your mileage may vary etc…

          • undo button

            add an undo and redo button so we can go back from major errors, see total point values change with a addition or subtraction of a unit, or what ever else undo buttons are used for.

                  Yep, this needs doing.

                  I am working on improving the output right now. After that I will start to introduce better printing on mobile.

                  It will likely be available only on compatible devices (e.g. Android 4.0 and up) depending on availability of printing support in different OSes.

                • Add an option to the Print dialog box to export as a PDF

                  This is standard on a Mac at least - not sure about other systems.

                    The workaround for this is to install a PDF printer such as Bullzip (bullzip.com). You can choose to print to this instead of your real printer, resulting in a PDF file.

                    I can add this in a future release as a standard output though.

                      I think I will include this in a future version of BattleScribe Pro.

                      Note this is a big job! It will likely be some time before I can get around to implementing it.

                    • Dice Tools: Allow user to save dice steps

                      The idea behind dice tools is nice, but its really slow to use. If you would be able to save different steps to use later it would be amazing and fast to use. Say for example i have some saved steps like "Hit 4+" "Wound 3+" and "Save 3+" I could just select the amount of rolls and imeditaley have the rolls for example my firewarriors shooting at space marines. Instead of having to create the steps slowly one by one, I would have a list of "to wound 2-6+","To hit 2-6+" etc. and then simply a quicklist to import…

                      • Add Wargear Profile Option

                        Add a display section at the end of the Roster Printout to display Wargear Rules/descriptions specifically. Helps to separate it from Special Rules and organize the final display better I'd think.

                          I can separate rule/profile summaries based on if the entry is a unit/model/upgrade. This will depend on whether the entry has this information on it (most currently do not).

                        • Allow option for inverted / dark / night theme

                          A white background is not only a bit hard on the eyes, bit also on the life of a battery. Making an inverse colors option would increase my ability to use BattleScribe as a full army biolding and monitoring tool, rather than just a calculator.

                              When I select Captain for Space Marines rooster I allways have to adjust wargear (because Captain has too few selections from Weapons). It would be nice if we could mark default options in the Catalogue.

                                Default weapons do work if the entry group is min 0/max 0. The problem at the moment is that if you want more than one default, there is no way to enter it. It would be good to allow a number of defaults up to the minimum selections of the entry group.

                                I will look into this in the future, but for now it does not have a high impact, so it’ll have to wait.

                              • make roster files compatible with Battle Chronicler Import

                                Battle Chronicler allows you to make Step by Step battle reports using lists of models and supports import from Army Builder. Battlescribe is much nicer software and it would be great to be able to import into Battle Chronicler, avoiding a duplication step.

                                I'm not sure if Battle Chronicler is still being maintained or if it would require support from their side, but perhaps BattleScribe could output in a way similar to an Army Builder file that would be able to be imported into BattleChronicler using the existing Army Builder import settings?

                                  • Multiple of the same selection should condense into one when viewing

                                    Currently when creating rosters only models that have EVERY upgrade with the "collective" option box checked do they condense. Certain units that can choose from multiple options, but do not should condense in much the same way (i.e. 2x BLARGFLARGHL) if the same options were chosen. Really just to make the view roster option better looking (as noise marines from 40K can EACH have different guns and can have up to 30!).

                                      It would be great to be able to drag and drop the shared "items" in the catalogue editor, instead of having to create a link.

                                        • How about a Chrome version?

                                          I'd buy you at least 2 more pints if you made it.
