      That should be adjusting automatically. Feel free to try it out with a Wizard.

      Having the Tab open used to be a feature, but during the UI overhaul, it didn't make it in yet.

      And please - open a JIRA (jira.pcgen.org) and make a bug report.

      Cheers,

So for example having its hp always be half its owner's hp without the user having to manually adjust it.

I notice that its static ability scores and other racial stats are entered correctly, but its intelligence score has not been advanced according to my psion level; and its hp, skill points and saves (except Ref) are still zero. (It's hp should be half the psion's, its skill ranks should be the same as the psion's but with a min of 4 in stealth & perception, and its saves should come from the psion's base saves and ability mods, not the psicrystal's abilities.)
