About the update Rob....

Duplicate Categories and Snippet Types

I need duplicates... (see attached pic)

I created a FULL Character Sheet in RW, and I need duplicates of the following items:

Armor
Weapons
Possessions

Magical
Non-Magical

So I know whether the items are magical or not at a glance.

What can be done?

Thanks
Lee

Maybe a Workaround - add a blank space(s) for each duplicate or change the description?

Is this a category for player character?

Would it be ok to have one section named "Equipment" or "Gear" with snippets like "Magical Armor", "Mundane Armor", "Magical Weapons", "Mundane Weapons", etc.?

It seems I am running into the same problem.

F. ex. in one category I have defined several snippets called "BTL" (Bring To Life), the idea I write one thing into each snippet that makes the character (NPC) special. Such as

"BTL: Stammers when excited."
"BTL: Twirls his mustache with left hand when contemplating something"

I assume I could just hve one such snippet and then add the additional ones when making each NPC - but that seems more work than have 3-4 of these snippets by default and then simply delete empty snippets when I am done.

I have no doubt that there are probably very good reasons programming wise for this change - I guess I just want it all :-)

Just in case someone winds up here.

Vargr, why not just enter a new line and put all of the BTL's in one snippet? Why must they be in separate snippets?

AEIOU February 18th, 2017 08:32 AM

Hard (and often impossible) to read if you put multiple items in a single snippet.

Bidmaron February 18th, 2017 09:11 AM

I sure don't see why that would be true. That is like saying every sentence should be in its own paragraph.
This is a perfect case of where you would put multiple character descriptors in a single snippet. You probably would never reveal these to players and if you did it would not hurt to reveal them all.

Vargr February 18th, 2017 02:50 PM

Well, I could have all info in one snippet, but it could become crowded and I wouldn't be able to reveal just a few.

For BTL this might be acceptable but for Dates it would not be a viable solution.

Farling suggested a simple solution in another thread that I will test when I get back on a pc (using a tablet now).
