Vote up! BattleScribe/Release#22 (add selected categories list for entry edit view)

@amis92 How would you propose defining what gets into that field? or who decides? "I'd propose to add a non-editable list of selected categories just above the selection list, as a simple text area. It could be as simple as comma-separated names list."
Is that a 'per catalog' list?

it's on the entry you have selected
so instead of having to scroll down the whole list to see what's selected, you just have a list of them displayed somewhere nearby

so ... a “readout” of the currently selected categories for a unit?
Ahh, I misread that entirely. I blame a lack of caffeine.

It definitely needs to be in the same order that the keywords/categories will show on the unit

@OftKilted, the order they display is the order in which they get added. :smile:

@Mad-Spy I was specifically referencing BattleScribe/Release#22 ... which was a request to give a display of the selected 'Categories' for a unit above the list of selections.

I realise that, but currently the order they will appear is always the order in which they were added to the unit.
with RSE level ones first and conditionals last.

Yep, and having it display on that comma separated list in that order would easily allow someone to 'fix a display order' issue in the data editor, and not need to validate in the roster editor.

it would actually be even better if we could manually order them.
Maybe I'll add that suggestion

That would indeed be better.
