  1. Put in a search function

    Include a search function that will enable someone to search for a specific unit to allow for easier list building. Maybe even just to be able to search through a selected catalog or Codex.

      • Allow moving unit from one force to another

        It would be awesome if, when I'm running multiple detachments, if I could easily move a unit from one detachment to another.

            • Synchronising to Dropbox on iPad - all rosters deleted

              I decided to enable the Dropbox synch function last night to share rosters between my phone and tablet.
              The app seemed to get stuck on the synchronising screen, grey with the spinning wheel. It said it might take a few minutes Utes, but it sat there for 15 before I ended up leaving it and going to bed.
              This morning opening battle scribe pro I have discovered that all my rosters are gone. Looking in the Dropbox app I can see that it has uploaded all the data, but there is no sign of rosters.
              I assume it failed to…

                • Allow favourites to be renamed after saving them

                  I specifically bought Battlescribe under the understanding that I'd be able to save a unit under favorites, label it as a specific name, and use it to quickly plug those specially named units into different lists. Unfortunately, if you name a Favorited squad, it doesn't even save that special name on favorites for that list!

                    I should add that there’s a workaround – custom names for favourites are saved if you name a unit before creating the favourite from it.

                    You can use this to change favourite names too, Add the favourite to your list, rename it there, then re-add it as a favourite (delete the old favourite if you like).


                    It certai2nly used to! This is a bug, I’ll get it fixed.

                    Thanks for letting me know.

                    Running the latest data and version of battlescribe 2.0 on iOS 10.2.1 (iPhone 5c) and I'm unable to create a roster using the chaos marine codex. I've tried several different formations, including a basic combined arms, and each time the app gets stuck on "Creating Roster..." as the wheel continues to spin.

                            When making an faction/army a min/max button would be useful so you can minimise each faction/army so you don't need to scroll trough the list to get to the next faction/army.

                                  Please make sure you install version 2.00.21 and let me know if it helps.

                                  If not, can you tell me what time zone you live in?

                                  Does the error message say anything else? The complete text exactly as shown.

                                    • Cannot change the Game System that a Catalog is assigned to.

                                      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.

                                      • BUG REPORT:

                                        Jon,

                                        I recently bought a Windows 10, 64 bit machine. I reinstalled Battlescribe and attempted to transfer my account (mgac21z@gmail.com). It should be good until September of this year. Do you know what may be causing this?

                                        I received the following error.

                                        Details:

                                          Apologies for the delay.

                                          This looks like a timeout while BattleScribe waits for your browser to respond after logging in.

                                          Do you have a firewall or something that might be restricting BattleScribe from receiving connections from the internet?

                                          Feel free to email me: jon dot taylor at battlescribe dot net

                                        • Ubuntu .DEB Package

                                          I develop stuff on apt based distributions a lot, and wouldn't mind putting together and maintaing a .deb installer package for Battlescribe. I understand that farming out installer creation to a third party brings trust issues up. Would putting the build scripts for each installer version up on github help? Anyone feeling paranoid could package it up themselves and check the MD5 listed on the main download page matches.

                                          Offers there, I've already got a pro licence so I'm not doing this to wangle a free one. ;)
