    Adding a "not carried" weapon, can never be carried or equipped

    Hi,

    I feel like I must be missing something obvious here. On the "Actions" tab of the character sheet for PFRPG 1E, if I add a weapon by clicking on the "Add weapon" button on the bottom of the sheet, or right-click and choose "Add weapon" and then I toggle the carried, equipped, not carried indicator (bag, shirt, empty-circle icon) to the "not carried" state and reload the campaign, the indicator for "carried, equipped, not carried" is no longer visible for this weapon. Essentially, I can never make it part of my character inventory. It is only an action.

    Is this behavior by design?

    Here is a screenshot showing what I mean. The weapon "1TestWeapon" was added prior to a campaign save/reload. It can no longer be equipped or carried. The "2TestWeapon" I just added and it has the toggle for changing the carried/equipped state.

    Thank you for any clarification.

    EDIT: It appears that no toggling of the "carried/equipped/not carried" state is necessary. It happens with any saved weapon on the Action tab.

    Cheers,
    Brian

    To follow up, after fiddling with this some more and looking at the XML code generated, it appears this is probably by design, although a bit confusing. Since weapons on the Action tab are potentially tied to items in the Inventory tab, it makes more sense to toggle their carried/equipped state on the Inventory tab. If a weapon in the Action tab doesn't correspond to anything in the inventory, still presenting the toggle button to make it carried or equipped might not make much sense, I suppose.

    In the future, I'll make sure I add any manually created weapons to the inventory if they represent items that would need to be toggled between "carried/equipped/not carried".

    Cheers,
    Brian
