Spellbook Builder tournament export format
« on: September 08, 2013, 12:54:03 PM »
My next task is to do the export functions for the SBB.

What format and information do people think will be useful for a tournament checklist/spellbook list?

I would vote for a CSV, XLS, TXT, and RTF format these are prob the most common used 8)

I would concur with Shadow, with CSV and TXT being the first focus then XLS/RTF.

.xls is a real pain, isn't it? .csv should be fine for importing into spreadsheets.

What's the advantage with .rtf? Do we need bold and underlines in our tournament booklists?

I can take the fun out of anything. It's true; here, look at this spreadsheet.

bold and underlines make lists look neater and cooler when posting to forums...

No plans for XLS or RTF. RTF is an enormous PITA.

CSV and txt for certain but when I meant format I meant how should the data be arranged and what type of data is going to be necessary?
