  1. Add an "Open Recent..." item to the File menu

    "Open Recent" would remember some number of the last files you were working on, and give a shortcut to reopen those without needing to use the file browser.

    • Crash

      I have the newest version of BattleScribe. I use an iPad Mini 2. Every time I try to add a force to a roster or add roster, the app crashes.

        Please tell me:
        1) What version of the app you are using
        2) What device you are using
        3) What version of iOS/Android/Windows/macOS you are using
        4) What game/army you are having a problem with
        5) What exact steps I need to go through to make the problem happen.
        6) If you see an error message, what exactly does it say?

      • Maximize Roster Preview for Windows

        Currently there's no Minimize / Maximize choice for the Windows Form used for Roster Preview. Could you enable this? Not sure if you're using Visual Studio or not, could be as simple as enabling it.

        • Add ability for an entry to count to two categories

          Would this be possible? At the moment for the ninth age we make a new category called say "Core + Jungle Guerrilla", and decrease the points allowance for those other categories based on points spent in this combined category. If you could choose a secondary category for an entry this could be solved in a much simpler way, and decrease the overall number of categories needed. So the entry would count to both category limits, but only once to the points total of the roster.

          • create a minimise/maximise button for factions/armies

            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.

              • Make the rosters printable from the Mobile app

                If the rosters were printable (even just to PDF) from the Mobile app in the "View Roster" mode, people with Android tablets wouldn't have to worry about losing power during a game.

                • Pro 2.0

                  I am a long time pro user I get that this is a new version and I'm fine with that. What I would like is a way to pay 10$ or whatever is fair to get a perpetual 2.0 pro account. Understanding that when 3 comes along I will need to get a 3.0 pro licence. I am happy to support good software I just don't like subscriptions

                      • It worked fine for me this afternoon (around 1pm, 22 JUN 16) but now won't start. PC.

                        Battlescribe won't initialize. I've rebooted several times, uninstalled and reinstalled Battlescribe at least three times, deleted old data manually, deleted the BS folders manually, tried the zip file twice. Earlier today it worked fine, I came home from work and it won't even initialize. I'm running Windows 10 on a Toshiba satellite c75d-a

                        • Data Error, System.TimeZoneNotFoundException

                          Using an IPhone 4s, iOS 9.3.5, Battlescribe 2.00.14.

                          Can't seem to import data, I've deleted and reinstalled numerous times.

                          I open battlescribe, go to "find data", scroll to Warhammer 40,000. Try to add the index. Error message pops up of "System.TimeZoneNotFoundException" everytime, I have attempted to type the link in manually a few times also, but nothing seems to work.

                          Please help. Thanks.

                          • Add combined print just models

                            If you're putting together large rosters with multiple formations across multiple detachments with the same model then the print view separates them by unit/formation/detachment.

                            I'd like to see a print view that showed me just which models I need to grab out of my collection grouped by wargear.

                            • Official iOS App Through App Store

                              I'm happy to pay you for the Desktop app. I do prefer to use the App Store as opposed to downloading the app manually through your store.

                              The App Store is more secure, can use Apple gift cards, and best of all for the user you can easily download all of your apps once you connect your Apple account. Great for me since I switch computers often. Ultimately it comes down to convenience. It's easy to use and spend money on the app store VS trusting a new vendor.

                              I'm well aware the App Store takes their cut. I'd be…

                                It’s something I’ve looked into. Although they take a cut (which is annoying), the main thing is that there are other restrictions on how the app should work.

                                I don’t remember the details but I remember not having wanting to iveat the effort at the time. Not sure what the current status is on that but will give it another look :)

                              • Prevent the user of the roster editor from checking more options than allowed

                                Due to the way some wargear rules are formulated, I can't simply create three weapon slots with one maximum option each. I would therefore request, that if a model can get a maximum of three weapons, checking a fourth option should be impossible (instead of producing an error message).

                                • 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.

                                      There is no menu function on my tablet (Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition). On my phone the menu button works, and in the app the virtual menu button works as well. But on tablet the physical menu button does not open the menu and the is no virtual menu been button in the app.

                                      • 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. ;)

                                        • Ensure changing data location on Desktop works correctly

                                          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.
