I recently noticed when updating a character that the order the attacks are printing seems to have changed. I'm not sure what criteria the system uses to order the attacks, but it's seemed so far that the equipped weapon was always printing on the front page and first, and others were showing up later. Now Shield Bash is at the top, and the actual check box-equipped weapon is on the back of the page. I can't find any way to re-order this, but I'd rather attacks I never use not to show up on the front page and first in the list. Any ideas on why this has happened or how to fix it?

Thanks.

Weapons print in alphabetical order. I always use Custom weapons and use custom name to make them print in specific order such as "1. Longsword", "2. Short sword", etc.

Any idea why Shield Bash is first, then, no matter what other weapons are in?

It goes first for some reason. Use custom Shield as well and in the weapons tab give it a custom name as well. "2. Shield, Heavy steel"

The reason is that " Heavy Shield Bash" has a *Space* in front of the letter H. Spaces and special characters Sort before letters. I often just use a Space instead of numbers on my characters to sort.

Just an FYI.

I didn't see the space in front of it. Thanks for the info.

Thanks for the heads up. Is this something that happened with a newer release? The shield has been there for a while, and after the latest update is the first time I've seen it do this. Also, I could swear the weapon with the filled check box (aka equipped) always showed first, despite the alphabetical order. I recall other character sheets putting that one up top. Think I still might have some of them, even.

Is this something that is being looked at for the next update?

Would think that the weapons you used (i.e. ticked) should appear 1st.
