Default Adding "parent item" to DFRPG skill list

Hello

I like to sort the skill list in clearly defined blocks using parent items.
In many cases, I found it make the skill list more readable.

Is it possible to get "parent item" in the skill list when using the DFRPG library ?

I only see a parent item for gear.

Possible workaround I found if it is not possible :
-copy a skill, and designate it as a parent item. Then make it zero-cost(free) and rename it.
-switch to the generic library, add as many parent items skills as needed, then switch back to DFRPG - is there any risks doing that ?

Thanks

Okay, the updated file should be available now through Check for Updates.

Those should work, yes. Although I find changing libraries much more annoying than just creating a new character, so for your second work-around, I'd actually create a new character (using the default library, presumably with Basic Set in there), add a new parent item of the correct type, CTRL+C copy it, then paste it into the character that needs it.

Updated, it work perfectly.

Thanks a lot.

And I hadn't realized how flexible copy/pasting between characters is ... awesome ! This will save a *lot* of time :)

I hope it serves you well!

As a note: When you copy a trait or modifiers in GCA, a chunk of XML text gets placed onto the clipboard. You can paste that into a document or email, where it can be copied onto the clipboard at a later time or on another machine, and then pasted into GCA. Theoretically, this makes it easier to share bits with friends (or yourself later), at the expense of a big block of text that you need to take a bit of care in copying out later.
