      Add the ability to print to word processor, or allow manual PDF page breaks. Current system cuts the items in half which makes reading it on paper difficult.

                    Many rules grant the ability to reroll dice rolls of a particular result, like rerolling 1s. This is different to just getting a flat out reroll of failed results. Could this be added to the dice tool/calculator alongside multipliers, modifiers and rerolls?

                      Add features that could expedite game setup. Also possibly add a mass (many) dice roller as an options for those who may prefer a digital option to rolling dice (for w/e reason). All of the features Im suggesting are listed below.

                      points keeper/victory points calculator
                      dice roller (capable of rolling many dice at once and displaying a summary of the results)

                        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.)

                        • Add ability to disable (not delete) a detachment

                          Is it possible to make it so you can disable a detachment, removing it's points and other conditions from the total cost and list legality check? It would make it much easier to experiment with multiple formation lists and keep variations without having to delete and re-create them or have multiple save files (sort of like a side board).

                              When creating a roster it is almost impossible to load two detachment s of the same large catalogue without the app either crashing outright or triggering low data mode.
                              I have plenty of data and can't understand what is causing this issue.

                                Windows display scaling does not seem to work properly for battlescribe - text is too small, too large, or badly kerned - sometimes all at the same time. An issue can be seen at https://imgur.com/srTyViB along with my display settings.

                                  This appears to be an issue with Java that I don’t have control over. This may change with a future Java update (I’ll keep an eye out).

                                  Otherwise I’ll have to explore other user interface options, although changing to a different UI system is a massive job!

                                  I’ll be reviewing options.

                                • Favorites need to have global option

                                  Can we please get an option to mark favorite units/formations that are saved to favorites as global use? Currently when you favorite something its only available to that particular category you are working under. Optionally, the ability to just copy/paste favorites from once favorites category to another would work as well.

                                    This might not be possible. The favourites still need to match up appropriately with the data structure.

                                    I may be able to do something by making use of shared items, but no guarantees.

                                    • Remove deprecated catalogues from a repository

                                      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.

                                      • Translate the app

                                        Event though English is one of the most spokeb languages around the world, I'd like to see the app having the option to change the language eg. French, spanish, German, and some more maybe.
                                        As I know that's a lot of work, I'd suggest implementing this in the paid version.
                                        Cheers.

                                          Translation is on the to-do list.

                                          Please bear in mind that most text is in the data files. To get the best out of this, you would need to also form a community to create data in various languages.

                                          The appspot data site is open source of anyone wants to host versions for different languages.

                                          At this point Battlescribe is our favourite tool to build up an army and share it with our friends ( or foe , if you dosn't trust them).

                                          I would like to have ( maybe in premium edition ) some tools to keep track of the mission.
                                          here same example:
                                          - record wounds/hull point
                                          - record vehicle damage
                                          - record unit marker ( Go into ground, stunned, etc..)
                                          - victory point

                                          We could have an mission entry to define and build up a mission ( with points, objective, special rules,etc).
                                          Create a Battle linking two or more roster and tracking…
