[BUG?] Filtering Out Feat Types (Metamagic, etc.)
- Hi everyone,
First of all, thanks for all the hard work; I've found PCGen a very
useful tool over the years.
I have a question about using the filters and filter customizations.
Is there a way (without going through the raw data files, which is
what I do now) to filter out feat types? I can't create a custom
filter that would do this, like [Type : Metamagic] for example; I get
a "filter X not found" error.
I've searched through the archives here and haven't found anything
relevant on the topic. The documentation doesn't go into much detail,
and the third example in the edit window, which includes a Type:
filter, doesn't work in 5.6.1.
I'm guessing that since there is an example that does just what I was
trying to do, somewhere along the way something got changed or left
out, which is why I'm calling this a bug rather than a feature
request. However, please correct me if I'm wrong here :-)

like to be able to filter out metamagic feats, but without removing
them from the database, so other characters can still use them. (The
Misc : Qualify filter leaves feats with no prerequisites like Quicken
Spell.) I'd also like to filter out psionic feats, which show up in
the listing even when I specifically haven't loaded the psionics
handbook in the SRD.
Currently, the available filters include source, genre, setting,
normal / virtual / automatic, and Misc : Qualify.
