  1. Add the option to create an index of all units in the list

    To facilitate the use of the generated HTML list during play, it would be nice to have the option to prepend the list with an index or table of content of all units in the list linking to anchors for all the units.
    Adding to that, all said unit anchors having a link back to the beginning of the list would make jumping betweens units so much easier.

    • 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.

        • Simple listing of which files you have loaded / were updated

          Screen to show when files were last updated and what revision they're on

          Just to know what may have changed. Or in case of developer, that when using multiple repos, you didn't just download a catalogue you maintain but which was updated by someone else (happened to me once).

          As an extension in future, simple additional text field for each revision incrementation could be used to inform of what changes were made in between. Useful for everyone and hopefully not too complicated. Also then that list could have links/buttons to view changes, if listed.

            • Bug report - Army Preview jacked up

                • add an option to lock the screen orientation

                  When placing down my phone while viewing the roster, the orientation changes and scrolls back to the top, losing the unit I was looking at. An option to lock which orientation you want to view it on would fix this.

                    It seems that the entire standard Mac Edit menu is missing. Please implement the standard system call to allow the menu and I think you'll get all the functions for free.

                    • Crash- adding Fortification or Lord of war

                      Android 7.0 on a Samsung S7
                      App version 2.01.02
                      Using Warhammer 40,000 8th edition info v1.08 (updated today) taken directly from inside the app, which pulled from https://github.com/BSData/wh40k

                      When trying to add a Fortification or Lord of War under the Fortification Network or Super Heavy Auxiliary detachment respectively, the app will crash when they are from the Tau empire. I am able to add others without issue so far (from other armies) so not entirely sure if it is a data issue or app issue.

                      • Allow us to mix different factions with the same faction keyword (example: Aeldari)

                        So in 8th Edition, Craftworld Eldar, Dark Eldar and Harlequin units all have the Aeldari keyword.

                        This means that in, say, an Outrider Detachment, you're able to take any Aeldari HQ, along with Reavers, Windriders and Skyweavers. The way BattleScribe is currently set up allows you of course to take Detachments from different armies in one force, but it doesn't allow you to take units from different factions that share a Faction Keyword in one Detachment.

                        I imagine Space Marines have a similar rule, I haven't looked into their index.

                        I hope this gets implemented soon :) My solution would…

                        • Dedicated window for viewing unit/model statline

                          Right now you have to mouse over for a units statline to be displayed. It would be great if you could see the statline as you were building the army.

                          • I am Having a problem with Version 2.00.17

                            Version 2.00.17
                            Windows 10 Desktop App

                            The error i am receiving is two fold

                            1. I attempt to open an existing roster. Battlescribe will attempt to open the roster and open a blank screen that loads when you open just the application. No error Messages were given.

                            2. When I click on the open roster button, press Ctrl O or go to file and open roster. Battlescribe will close to desktop without an error message. This means I have no way of viewing or editing existing Rosters.

                                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

                                • Allow upgrades to be collective across several model types in a parent unit or group.

                                  At the moment, collective upgrades work really badly in the following situation: (Imaginary example)

                                  A unit has 2 or more different types of model (say, swordsmen and shieldbearers). There's a single collective upgrade (wearing helmets) which should be collective across both - either all models in the unit have it, or none do.

                                  At the moment there's no way to handle this which isn't annoying for the end user. The best that can be done is to repeat the upgrade for each model type, with consistency modifiers that set a minimum on each model type if it's taken on any…

                                    • Fix the problem with character limits

                                      In the Dread elves file the system tells us that we are going beyond the points limit provided for characters also if we are well under the cost of 1800 points provided by our rules. The alert for errors in the list is uncorrect.
