      It would be nice to be able to make folders to organise rosters.

      • 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).

            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.

          • Allow Android/iOS users to edit catalog files from their tablet/phone, instead of having to use a computer.

            It would be nice to be able to edit catalog and game system files on android.

              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.

              • 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.

                  • Add a custom unit entry option.

                    To help users keep up with the speed of new unit releases (weekly now, in some cases), and to help alleviate the burden on community catalogue creators, allow manual and custom entries to be added to a roster.

                    As an example, a user could open up a unit type / role option(HQ, Elite, etc) and there would be a "Custom Entry" selection. When selected, one could just manually enter stats, a total point value, and some miscellaneous text to define a new unit that has yet to be created in a catalogue. This would also help users who create custom…

                    • Bug Report : unresponsive help page

                      OS: iOS
                      Installation: fresh install, no data files added yet.
                      Issue: search for some data and online help buttons unresponsive

                      Reproduction:
                      Upon fresh install, message stating no data files received.
                      Pressed help button, see cropped help page with unresponsive "search for some data" and "online help" buttons.

                      Resolution / workaround:
                      If I tap any other tab at the top f the screen, then tap on the help screen again, it fully loads and I can click on the buttons and have them work perfectly

                      Great software and I hope you keep up the great work!

                      • Keep unit lists collapsed after selecting a new unit

                        I think this might have been an unintended change at some point, but when collapsing the unit entry menus on the left (such as troops and elites for 40k) selecting a unit to add to your list immediately re-expands all menus and sub-menus that you have hidden.

                        It is handy to be able to keep the menus hidden, as I like to rule out what I don't need to add anymore of as I build my list. Thanks.

                          • Enhance the role of Book field

                            There was a suggestion already ( http://battlescribe.uservoice.com/forums/55066-general/suggestions/5361244-allow-creation-of-reference-books-object-into-a-ga ).

                            But I think you might have got it wrong. Or me.

                            Anyway: It's common a catalogue contains entries originating from two-three books. Even one sometimes.

                            What if a Catalogues (and Game System) could define Book resources (like Shared Entries) and they could be directly referenced in Entry as a Book instead of writing it by hand for every entry.

                            So what I'm saying is make Book not a string entity but rather a defined object. That would enhance Catalogue writing by a ton.

                            Also it would allow end users to for example…

                              You’re right, some interesting stuff could be done with this. Thanks!

                              I’ll be doing bug fixes in the next release only, before moving on to new features, so this won’t be done right away.

                                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…

                                    On my friends iPhone 7 his app works correctly, on mine it does not.
                                    On the roster view options "Roster Statistics" is checked on, but when viewing the roster there is no roster statistics at the bottom of the page.

                                      The roster statistics are only available for Supporters, they won’t show up in the free version. That said, they aren’t 100% reliable right now and need some work. It’s on the to-do list.

                                      The default location for the data is C:\Users\XXXX\BattleScribe.
                                      I want to change it and I can (Manage Data - Change Data Location). In my case, I put it right in the Battlescribe folder (C:\program files(x86)\BattleScribe\Files)

                                      However, everytime the program restart, the data location always resets to the default location (C:\Users\XXXX\BattleScribe)

                                        You will be better off storing your data elsewhere (not in Program Files). If you have data in Program Files, it would be better to move it rather than changing BattleScribe’s data directory.

                                        Windows’ folder permissions in the Program Files directory are quite strict and may cause problems if you store data there.

                                        I’ll check that the “change folder” mechanism is working correctly though.

                                        When creating a new roster with battlescribe on android if the screen rotates it appears to undo your progress, take you back to the catalogue select screen and display duplicate catalogues.

                                        • 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!).
