  1. Styling or JSON export

    It would be great if an exported army could have classes in the html tables. That way it would be fairly easy to add additional styling to the standard export of battlescribe such as custom cards or handouts.

    Another option would be to allow export to JSON, which can then be used in other programs to create custom handouts

  5. Constant preparing data when navigating the app

    The app is always going into preparing data when switching back to the rosters page. Also when pressing th home button and going back into the app even for a second will bring up the loading screen and send me back to the rosters page no matter where I was. Anytime I have to get to the rosters page I’m getting preparing data. It’s super slow and annoying. Most of the times I will even see the roster flash on screen then the app locks me out and goes into preparing data for 15-30 seconds.

    Version 2.01.10

  7. Error loading data

    Hi there,

    I'm running Battlescribe version 2.01.04 which appears to be the latest version on the App Store.

    ServerProtocolViolation

    I get the above error once when trying to get data through 'manage data' but it lists the error twice when I try to log into my account on my iPhone.

    I don't have any other steps to des rove other than going to the menu, pressing 'manage data', it says I don't…

  9. The "Shared?" checkbox on conditions

    |Shared Selection Entries
    |
    |-Bike
    |
    |-Captain
    |--Link to: Bike
    |
    |-Biker
    |--Link to: Bike
    |
    |Selection Entries
    |
    |-Link to: Captain
    |
    |-Link to: Biker
    |--Modifier
    |---Condition

    In one of our files we have the above configuration.

    The Condition under Link to Biker checks for At Least 1 Selection in Force of Link to: Bike (under Captain).

    With the Condition's "Shared?" set to true it counts any instance of Bike, including those not under Captain (ie. from selections of Biker).
    With "Shared?" set to false it counts no instances of Bike, including those under Captain, so the Condition always…

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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…

  14. create a "group by" sorting option

    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

  15. Shorthand Rules

    I'd like to see an additional text field for rules. The standard one keeps the rules as is, and can be written out as is. Then there is a shorthand text field for the same rule, to condense it as much as possible.

    Initial implementation would allow you to globally choose "Full" vs "Shorthand" rules for viewing/printing roster. A possible future improvement would be to allow a user to choose per rule - IE shorthand the ones you're more familiar with, and use the full description for rules you don't remember as well.

  16. Show in the output if a list is valid or invalid

    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.)

  18. Rules/profiles not rendering when viewing

    Bug Report - Print Roster / Include profiles? / Summary does not work any more.

    BattleScribe v2.02.01.122
    Running on Windows 10, all updates applied.

    When selecting the Include profiles? / Inline shows the profile and rules with each unit. However, selecting Include profiles? / Summary does not show the profiles at the bottom of the document. Mouseover on each unit works, so the data is present, but not being rendered in the print screen.

    Datafile deleted and downloaded again - Warhammer 40,000 v1.3.0

  20. Version v2.01.17.117 - info line reports 'unsaved' no matter what, unless you just loaded a file

    Version v2.01.17.117

    The roster info line (top right, roster name, data files, points, CP, validity, saved status) always shows as RED and UNSAVED even when having JUST saved (and verified) the successful write.

    The only time this goes to black (ie 'valid | saved') is right after you have loaded a previously written file.
