      I found a bug in how PCGen enforces wizard spells. PCGen insists that my wizard with the Conjuration/Teleportation school has to prepare Acid Splash. This is not necessary according to the Pathfinder rules. The relevant quote from the CRB:

      "Each arcane school gives the wizard a number of school powers. In addition, specialist wizards receive an additional spell slot of each spell level he can cast, from 1st on up. Each day, a wizard can prepare a spell from his specialty school in that slot. This spell must be in the wizard's spellbook. A wizard can select a spell modified by a metamagic feat to prepare in his school slot, but it uses up a higher-level spell slot. Wizards with the universalist school do not receive a school slot."

      Note: You have to use the bonus slot for a spell of that school. You don't have to prepare a spell of your school for each level, just in that bonus slot. And you don't get a bonus slot at level 0, so I don't have a slot specifically reserved for Acid Splash. Yet somehow PCGen insists I prepare it in one of my regular spell slots.

        Hi,

        Sounds like a code issue.

        Raise a Code Jira and we'll see what we can do to get that resolved.

        Thanks,
