Not sure I follow entirely.

So I have a Background, Alchemists Apprentice. In addition to the Bonds, Flaws, Ideals, and Personality traits, there is a pick list of 10 items associated with it about what your specialty is for apprenticing.

I have Alchemists Apprentice setup on the Background Tab, and it sounds like I add the 10 item list under Background Custom ability, but where am I tying them together so I have a choice on the character?

On the Alchemists Apprentice Background, scroll to "Custom Ability Count" and enter "1".

On each Background Custom Ability, click on "Available to Background" and check the box next to "Alchemists Apprentice", and choose the Roll that gives you that result.

Not that there's more than one of these background lists in the official backgrounds, but can "Custom Ability Count" be higher than one? If so, would choosing the same roll for different abilities properly split the lists? Or some other flag in the Custom Ability?

You could put the number of slots higher than 1, but I wouldn't try to fit two different lists into the same table.
