Vince said: Joe, that's not an unreasonable request and I will take it under consideration. I'm curious, how are you currently using the Ability and Item chat menu buttons? Personally, I hardly ever use the Items menu, but I do use the Abilities menu often and find myself including nearly all them on the Abilities chat menu. As much as possible, I try to include everything on a sheet, so that I don't need to rely on paper backups. That includes feats and mundane items.On a PC or significant NPC, I'll even include racial traits and minor class abilities. The significant majority of common feats are not ones that you actively use independently of other actions of the character. For example, why would I want Power Attack to show up when I include the appropriate macros in the attack roll? Or Improved Initiative when I include the bonus in the initiative section? Do I really need to see the "Greed" trait on a Dwarf, when I've added an appropriate note to the Appraise roll? I try to keep the Abilities menu limited to things that don't come up elsewhere, so I don't have to pick through a bunch of unnecessary buttons to find what I'm going to do. Or, if it's a character I haven't looked at much in a while, I don't want to have to wade through a bunch of buttons just to remind myself what that character's options are. I don't use the items menu all that often either, but when I do, it's because I'm trying to use something that generally requires a roll, usually in combat -- most commonly wands, potions, and alchemical weapons. I don't really want to have to scroll past the armor, weapons, a bedroll, rope, etc. just to find the item I'm trying to roll for. I'll admit that there are certain categories of abilities and items where it would be useful for the Show checkbox to automatically be checked (spell-like abilities and charged magical items immediately come to mind), but I suspect implementing that kind of logic would be more trouble than it's worth. Even if the coding isn't overly difficult, I could see lots of arguments over which things should automatically be checked, and which shouldn't. Frankly, I'd be perfectly happy with the status quo, excluding most abilities and items, and manually checking those I want to see on the menus. Also, for clarification, when you say that the change will only affect new sheets, do you just mean that the Show checkbox won't be automatically changed on existing sheets? When adding a new ability/item to a sheet that predated this change, will the new ability/item's Show box default to checked?
