I'm not sure if this is even the right place to put these, but if not,
be gentle with me.

Having used CV for a few months, I'm very happy with it overall. But
there are a couple of minor things I'd like to see, if ever you get
around to making such changes.

#1 annoyance: inventory entry. When entering inventory cards, I hate
taking my hands off the keyboard. I can press 'P' to jump to the first
card starting with 'P', but to go beyond that card I need to either
hit the down arrow (which for some reason is very slow, the screen
flickers with an update after each keystroke and there is a
significant lag) or use the mouse to point at a card further down the
screen. What I would really like is the ability to type 'P' [jump to
first card], then 'U' [jump further, to first card starting with
'PU'], etc. (Instead, 'U' jumps to the first card starting with 'U'.)
The incremental search feature should remember that the last
interaction was a keystroke, and build up the search as it goes. If I
type an arrow key, or mouse to the screen, then it should reset.

#2 wish: I wish card sets (in particular, Magic: the Gathering,
because of their reprint policy) had some way to identify when a card
was a reprint. For example, in the Betrayers of Kamigawa set, "Phantom
Wings" is a reprint from Weatherlight. I'd love to be able to identify
such reprints so I can pull them from my old card boxes to use in new
Standard-legal decks.
