When saving a spellbook that was loaded from disk, subsequent saves are text only (.txt extension).

This should be in the Bug Report thread :-)

Nothing I can do about this. The Mac makes assumptions about files based on the MIME type of the file and then adds file extensions for you. Its an annoying sort of thing to do but there is nothing I can do to stop it from happening.

Samething happens with my Chromebook. It totally drop the name, saving the file under the name "sbb.txt".

Two thoughts

First it would be nice to have an ongoing total of the cost of spells added the spellbook at the bottom of the selected spells list.

Second I see it previously mentioned by Moonglow but didn't see a response to the fact that card images persist if another card is selected and need to be actively deselected to be closed.  Being able to close the image by clicking on it somewhere or simply having it disappear when another card is selected would be nice. 

useful tool.

There is. A bug is currently stopping it from working

If you click the name of the card again the preview will disappear. I will be rewriting the preview system for the next version

Can you remove the spell types that aren't available from the list?  Like at the moment it says 0 available, but they were never selected (i.e. Akiros battlecry because I didn't select the set its in)... If there are zero available, is there an advantage to showing it at all? Or is it just too hard/much hassle to remove?

Might be simpler to use CSS to grey out the cards you don't have. Would that be workable?

My post in the general forums reminded me I should provide feedback here:

Please have a 'set' you can choose that would set all card quantities to six.  (Or some other option so you're not limited by card quantities when building a spellbook.)

I'll look into adding a menu option for that. Shouldn't be too difficult

What about a menu option to ignore spell card counts?

Adding spell level to what you can see on the list would be nice.

It won't be in the SBB but it will be in the Card Database based on the SBB. There isn't enough room currently on the SBB to add another column

first of all, i would like to say, i love working with the SBB to set up my spellbooks

just two thoughts however :

1) in near future, could it be possible to have the promo cards as well in the dbase ? I would like to add hurl rock and clear mind to my wizard build...

2) also i think it would be very handy to have a "type" filter in the spell book window as well, just like there is one in the spell list window...to be able to analyze the chosen spells in a more detailed way

..but thanks anyway for this great tool !

Hey Pixelgeek, I am attempting to generate files for the spellbook builder and ran into an issue. It appears that the SBB is case-sensitive when it comes to the card IDs. For example, I have the card ID "MW1E02" in a file which is the ID for Block, but the SBB does not recognize it unless I change it to "mw1e02".

If you are able to make the SBB case-insensitive when processing card IDs I would appreciate it. Thanks.
