I've made a working version of spell-like abilities where I do not have to make a special for each version of them. The problem I'm having is that I cannot get a spell-like ability to appear under the Spells tab without it also appearing under the Specials tab. I don't want that to happen, but unfortunately, once I remove the Helper.ShowSpec tag, they disappear from the Spells tab as well.

Here is what I have done, and it works, excepting this troubling Specials<->Spells tab relationship.

I created a special sSpellLike with a generic description of "You have the ability to cast this spell without the need of components." with an Ability Classification of Spell-Like Ability and with Show in Tracked Resources List checked. I can them bootstrap this to any of my Spell-Like Ability descriptions (for example, the gnome would have 1/day - dancing lights, ghost sound, etc.) and then assign the SpInfo for the spell as well as the Usage tags. Then I can set the hTotal for number of times over the usage period (or not at all for At Will abilities) and live name the spell I intend it to represent. Works great, except for them now appearing under the Specials tab as well when they aren't needed there (since I've already got a special that lists all their spells, spell level, what the saves are based on, etc.).

Is there a way to get the Spell-Like specials to appear in the Spells tab without also appearing under the Specials tab?

Thanks!

I created a bunch of spell-like abilities in the "Custom - Spell like Abilities" user file that do not show up in the Specials tab. I did this by adding the tag "Helper.SpecUp".

@Sendric I'll give that a shot. Thanks!

UPDATE: Worked to perfection!
