    Default weapons do work if the entry group is min 0/max 0. The problem at the moment is that if you want more than one default, there is no way to enter it. It would be good to allow a number of defaults up to the minimum selections of the entry group.

    I will look into this in the future, but for now it does not have a high impact, so it’ll have to wait.

    This would be a big help for users of the Android version, as drilling down into levels of options can get tedious. A feature like this could practically HALF the amount of time it takes a user to fully create a Roster.

    All this would require would be a an XML attribute for a Catalog entry called "default" (or something similar). When a Roster Editor user selects an item that has that attribute, the Roster Editor would automatically select that item. Battlescribe already allows users to select any number of checkbox items, so there wouldn't need to be any error-checking logic beyond that which already exists.

    Initially I thought this would be a problem to implement – should a data file author dictate to a user what order the entries appear?

    Thinking more about it however, I think the solution here is to let the user decide. Instead of the data file author rearranging the entries in the data files, I think it would be better to allow the user to rearrange the selections in their list.

    That's a nice idea for the List tree and for the output of of the List, but for the selection widgets of the Roster Editor, it would be nice if the catalog file author had control over how and where items appeared.

    The more I edit catalog files, the more I wish this were possible. Both the Roster Editor and its output files would look much nicer and more polished if this were implemented.
