Re: [pcgen] Re: Does PCGen cache ablitycategories?
- Hi Folks,
The issue of missing abilitycategories -
If you have any source referencing a non-existant category, i.e.
ABILITY:Does Not Exist in Loaded Sources|AUTOMATIC|Ability in that pool
or if you had previously saved a Character with those sources and then load said character without those sources.
I've put in a verbal request that the pcg file only save ability pools that have a change, points, abilities taken, etc. But that's also in the group of requests for "Only Mark character as dirty with an actual change' not, I exported, I opened it, etc. Hm, I suppose I should actually tracker that.
The Preference 'Show Portrait' must be checked which is why you're issue is occuring. Odd, that pcgen would be checking ability categories/pools for a simple picture load.
Okay, TM Note:
Bug - Prior to loading character file getting an Abilitycategory Error - corner case, but needs to be addressed
Freq - PCG to only saves in-use abilitycategory pools (Mine are getting quite large with empty non-used pools)

Ok, I found the problem
Appearently, PCGen loads the character file as soon as it is selected in the file browser, when using 'Save As' etc. Probably to display the character portrait etc.
However, since the appropriate sources are not loaded, I get errors.
Looks like a bug to me.
