Hey, thanks for working on this. It looks great!

I got one question though. I can't quite seem to get the "Push cards up to fill empty space." button to work. The first I pressed it, it asked me if I wanted to give permission for it to run script. But after I've done that, when I press that button, I get the messages "running script", then "finished script", but nothing happens. Not sure what I'm doing wrong.

Here's the deck handler in case anyone wants to take a look.

I made a copy of that Deck Handler you linked and it worked for me. Keep in mind it only works on your Hand, recovery, discard, recharge/etc areas, no other sheet or part of the sheet. You need to have cards placed so that they're not in the topmost cells they could be, and they can be compressed down (useful after you've been clearing cards out from discards/recharges/heals), or have a non-sorted hand. Could you give a screenshot of what your deck handler looks like before you press the button to try to compress cards?

Make sure you also followed the correct prompts to give the scripts permission to run. It should be something like "A script in this document needs your permission to run -> warning page -> Advanced -> Go to <document> -> choose Google account (make sure you're signed into one)". Once that's done, you don't need to do it again as long as you're logged into google.

It's annoying, but that's one of the reasons I made sure nothing important relied on scripts.

(I may make another thread for bug reports/bugfixing, but I don't anticipate there should be too many.)

Ah never mind! I realised I misunderstood what that button does after after reading your reply and skimming through the script. (I had read it earlier as that if I pushed the button, the sheet would automatically populate my hand with cards up to its max.) So it works perfectly. Sorry about that. :P

Not a problem! Since you mention the possibility, though...

I could implement a 'multi-card-draw' function like that (in fact, it was one of the features I wanted to add), but it would have to be as a script or as a large UI element (as many rows tall as the number of cards you're copying). I extensively looked to see if it was possible to put multiple card names into a single cell that, when copy-pasted, would automatically fill multiple other cells (so you could enter a number so that it would pull, say, 5 random cards from deck, rather than 1 at a time, then you could copy-paste it to fill a whole hand area). It turned out such a thing wasn't possible, alas, nor did my backup ideas turn out too well.

I hesitate to add too many scripts for a few reasons. For one, I predict that only a minority of users will be running them (due to the headache of logging in and giving permission for them to run, and the small delay when they're used in the first place). They also fill up large parts of the UI as I've currently implemented them (though I'm sure I could come up with better solutions for presenting them to players) and they're much more time-consuming for me to write. (I also need to fix up the scripts so that they're more readable and apply some better coding standards to them so they're not as much of a headache to update.)

So soon again, I've developed another version of my Deck Handler base (now 4.5).

This time, the update is almost purely visual. I've made size, color and font adjustments to "LOOK!" page of the Deck Handler, I've increased the hand field size and shrunk the Recovery field size. I've also changed the test set of data/names, to throw in some Core cards.

And most importantly, I added in a set of Conditional Formatting rules that tries to recolor your hand cells to match the card type of each card in your hand - specifically, it recolors the cells to match the card type's given template color from the Core Set. The cell color auto-changing, as well as the changes I've made to the card font (and I recommend entering your card names in CAPITAL LETTERS) may help you get a better idea of what you have available at a glance and how you can work within the one-card-per-type limitation.

If you don't like the card type color changes, you can disable it with the checkbox in cell F39. If you don't like the font or color choices I've thrown in, you can reformat it back to something palatable to you.

That said, I'd really like feedback on this - if you make any visual changes that you think are better, I'd also love to see them!


I'm totally new to PACG (now PACS), so this is just my humble opinion. I personally prefer the aesthetics of 4.4 because I like plain text. :) I find different color cells and text more difficult to read, and detracts me from reading the information immediately.

Otherwise, I think your Deck Handler is fantastic! Love pressing the button to collapse empty cells. :) I'm making some amendments though, as I prefer all the card information, i.e. traits, powers, in my sheets rather than linked out to webpages. (Think I copied that from redeux.) Also to adapt for Mavaro who has that irritating ability to get skills from To Acquire of the card at the top.


Play PACG Play-by-Post? Feel free to use my custom Deck Handler.

That was my concern - you can disable the coloured cells in a checkbox further down for that reason. The question is, do the font and size changes I've made to the "LOOK!" part of the Deck Handler make it uglier or harder to read when you disable the color-cards-by-type option?

I know of at least one other person (besides me) who likes the card type colouring, so I'm trying to think of a good way to suit as many people as possible moving forward.


Wow, this is really great! As someone with no computer skills at all - and therefore very nervous about making any changes to the deck handler template that I've been using - this is tremendously helpful to me. I'm going to use it for building my next PC (Radovan).

Here are some other things that I would love to see in a Deck Handler - again, I have no idea if these would be simple or difficult to implement.

1. Would there be any way to see the powers of the cards in your hand without having to jump over to another tab? Perhaps like a floating tool-tip that hovers over the card when you select it? Or simply including that information on the first tab, though I realize there probably isn't room for it. I find myself flipping back and forth between the first and second tabs of the deck handler constantly because I don't have all the card powers memorized.

2. Like kuey said, I probably prefer a layout on the "Don't Look" tab that shows the card powers and traits, rather than just the url to open them.

3. Would it be possible to add a tab to track the PC's play history? Not just what scenarios have been played, but tier progression, rewards earned, upgrades taken, etc.

4. Similarly, I would find it helpful to have a "future" tab that could be used to track and plan for planned upgrades.

5. I wonder if it would make sense to have a way of tracking a) Loot cards, b) cards Acquired in a scenario, c) cards gotten from/given to a Trader, and d) cards given from another PC, separately from the list of the PC's main deck. Right now I do things like append "aq" to acquired cards, or add notes to myself in a card's power text to indicate that it was set aside for a Loot card or traded away at a Trader, but if feels very kludgy.

6. Personally, I would find it great if there were an easy way to note which cards are in my hand that other players may want to use or make note of. Since I don't know what most of the cards do, when it's my turn I find myself spending a lot of time looking through the other players' hands, trying to figure out if any of them have anything that will be useful in a particular situation. Of course people can use the Notes field for this (and that's what I currently do), but I'm imagining something like the color coding that you are already implementing, or maybe a checkbox that a player could check to note that a card was potentially useful to others, where I could quickly see which cards deserved my time to look at.

7. When playing Pathfinder RPG by PbP, one thing that can really make play easier is if you have some of your PC's common dice expressions already written out, so then you can just copy and paste them when you need them. I wonder if it would make sense to include space for the same in the Deck Handler? For example, if you know that every time you are playing a particular spell your (starting) dice expression is going to be "[dice=Arcane X}1d12+1+1d6[/dice} [Dice=Recharge? Arcane 6}1d12+1[/dice}" (with of course the caveat that this may all be modified by various things like Blessings played, etc), then you could just copy and paste the dice expression from the deck handler.

Like I said, I have no idea if any of these things are doable, or interesting to you, but they are things that I often find myself wishing for as I use the deck handler I have, so I thought I would share them with you. Thanks so much for all the effort you've put into this template and I look forward to using it!


Salim Deckhandler | Party Sheet

I too like having my card powers and traits listed in the sheet. I actually set up my deckhandler so I input them into a column on the input(don't look) tab and then have a vlookup on the output (look) tab. Paste card name into a specific cell and it goes and fetches the info so I can look up a card when needed.

I'll post with Salim since I think I have my deckhandler linked if people want to see it.

Definitely not as fancy as Yewstance's version, but it works for me. I also have a spoiler for each card in my hand which I stole from someone because I liked the idea.

A big thanks to kuey, Abraham Z. and Rhynn Davrie for more feedback and ideas! I'll try to respond to all of the ones that have been brought up with my own thoughts.

Note that no big changes will likely be made to my Deck Handler for a couple of weeks (so after the start of the upcoming convention) unfortunately, due to my own time constraints.

(Also if anyone feels that this is dragging the Flaxseed Discussion thread too off-topic, I'll happily make a new thread for Deck Handler business.)

I find myself flipping back and forth between the first and second tabs of the deck handler constantly because I don't have all the card powers memorized.

I'd love to do this - unfortunately, intelligent tooltips or something is entirely impossible within Google Sheets. There are ways that I could clone card texts over to the "Look!" page if someone were to add it to another tab, but it will make a very significant impact on the user interface (and will require users to physically enter their card texts' somewhere).

This seems to be a sufficiently popular idea that I can have a think about how to implement it - preferably as an optional feature hidden behind a checkbox somehow. I really want/need it to be optional, because making large interface changes is something I'm trying to avoid, because I want the Deck Handler to be 100% familiar to people who've only used the pre-existing standard. Plus, this is a feature that would demand user involvement to add the card texts somewhere in the first place, so it wouldn't exactly be hassle-free.

Of course, Rhynn already shared such a solution...

I like this setup, and I could integrate those features with your permission! On smaller monitors, you currently have to scroll the sheet to view the card info section, and I wonder if I could somehow integrate that with the interface in a different way. I can also use the card-spoilers solution, though they do still require a bit of user involvement to work right and I worry that I'm bloating the deck handler with redundant features. Even if I make them optional (which I try to do at all times), that's another checkbox I have to add to a list for users to read through.

Whilst "2" would be solved by Rhynn's suggested feature, as mentioned above, all of these are actually features that I often use on my own actual Deck Handlers (in some way), which I have not put in this Base Deck Handler to avoid bloating it with extra sheets. It's my experience in work that adding visible features, such as extra sheets, quickly turns off a large portion of viewers - who see 6 sheets to look through rather than the 2 they may be used to.

I also worry that these are very personal things. Do people want to track all the way to Tier 6? Do people want to track scenario names, party members, deck upgrades, loot, or only some of these things? I've seen a lot of people (myself included) on these forums add such sheets, and they're all wildly different in design, and cover varying degrees of information.

What I might do is I might make some of these sheets and Hide the sheets. It's pretty easy to un-hide sheets if you want to use them later, after all.

That feature kind of already exists in the "Temporarily Removed from Starting Deck" part of the DON'T LOOK tab, which I personally use to track cards I've traded away or switched for Loot, or cards I sometimes take as Loot. In a lot of cases, I don't see a need to list the differences - I don't see the need to label something as having been given to me vs acquired, since they're treated the same way (the BR does their own record-keeping of acquired cards).

Nevertheless, I could add sections in 'DON'T LOOK' to distinguish cards that are not in your deck for various reasons, or would only sometimes be in your deck. Distinguishing cards that are currently in your deck is much more tricky besides asking players to append text to them (like you mentioned with "aq"), because I can't really add an interface element when deck sizes are so variable, and the number of acquired cards is so variable.

I could probably think of permanent solutions, but they'd lead to overhauls of the DON'T LOOK tab, which I explicitly don't want to do. I might be able to work an alternative solution out, though.

Maybe I'll try a more 'major' overhaul and package it as a different deck handler base?

Well, the new Notes field is broken down into 3 areas, with the first one trying to encourage players to list this kind of information (under a section labelled "Support"). A solution was previously shared to me by Zalarian where you could also list which cards you were offering in order of priority, but it would again lead to more interface changes.

Color coding isn't really possible in the forums... I could make something that would interface with shared Party Sheets. But Party Sheets only really work when someone goes through the effort of linking them all together (and the more changes I make to the Deck Handler, the harder it will be to integrate into one), and the more I tinker with a Party Sheet the less easily it will work with people using different Deck Handlers.

A 'dumb' solution (which would still require me making an extra column in the LOOK sheet, which I'm reluctant to do) would be to have a suite of checkboxes next to your hand slots, and ONLY add hyperlinks to the cards in your hand summary that you've checked. This can be a simple representation of "You can potentially use these cards, so here's a link to find out what they do".

I do that on all of my own normal Deck Handlers! I even had a tab for it in the older versions of my Base Deck Handler, but I've since Hidden it.

However, that feels like it's entirely on the player to make those kinds of short copy-able expressions. Just click to add a new sheet and put text in there, formatted however you like. Which expressions would be helpful (or used at all) is going to be wildly different from character to character, and even how people like to format their turns varies widely. However, my Recovery and Heal scripts do generate bits of text (including dice rolls for the former) to make people's jobs easier.

I could un-hide the Copy&Paste Table sheet, and put in some dummy data, if wanted.

================================

In short, there's a lot of great ideas, and a lot of things I can implement and may implement, but I'm greatly constrained by trying to keep the Deck Handler visibly mirror the 'normal' one. I could try to make a separate 'Advanced' Deck Handler where I happily throw more and more features at players, I suppose.

Of all of the suggested functions I could add, does anyone have any opinions for what would be the most helpful, preferably whilst impacting the visual design the least?

Feel free to take anything from my sheet that's helpful. As I said, I have stolen several ideas and formulas from people as I run across things I like. If you like the vlookup solution, use it. I've been pretty happy with it, but it does involve a bit of upkeep to make it work, but it's work I'm happy to do to have the text available where I want it.


I ran into a couple of bugs in the 4.5 sheet last night.

* The recovery button generated text used my character name instead of the recovery skill in the dice rolls
* both the recovery text and the "copy/paste from here" box ended up surrounding the copied text with quotation marks.

Easy to work around but would be nice to have fixed.

That first part is absolutely my fault - it's something I failed to update properly when I added an extra hidden column to manage displayed card URLs.

Since it's a very simple fix, I'll fix that in the next 10 minutes - I'm not changing the link or version number, so Deck Handler 4.5 should have fixed that by the time most of you see this post. (Edit: Now fixed in v4.5)

The second issue, however, is entirely unavoidable. Copying from any cell (or cells) in Google Sheets that includes one or more 'newlines' (AKA: Line breaks, "Enter" presses, etc) will automatically inject wrapping quotation marks. If you have used newlines in your notes in the past (CTRL-Enter), this will be a familiar issue for people, and not something that I think it's possible to change. I've just kind of learned to live with it, unfortunately, since having no line breaks in blocks of text generated by scripts or otherwise is just impossible to work with.

Thanks for the bug reports!

First of all, big thanks for this deck handler. It's intuitive, user-friendly and has a lot of features that really streamline my turn posts. I'm looking forward to using it for CAG2 with the new Core/Curse sets and have already started using it for a couple of games with older base sets.

Could you post which cells you changed for the recovery button fix? As I mentioned, I have several copies of the deck handler saved and filled in with character decks and details. It would be nice to know which cells changed so I can copy them over from your updated sheet.
Again, thanks for your hard work on this. It's much appreciated.

This is how I updated mine. I wasn't sure where in the function was different so I just copied the whole function:

Tools\Script Editor
I tried the drop down to jump to Recover but that didn't work so I did a find for function Recover

First you do these steps in the corrected one and copy the whole function; then you replace the function in all of your sheets by saving the script editor before exiting.

Easiest way is, indeed, to just follow Zalarian's instructions above to open the "Scripts" page. Copy the entire thing (Ctrl-A, Ctrl-C) then paste that into the Scripts page of your own Deck Handler.

If you're a bit more technical, you'll find towards the bottom I make references to a "nameSet" variable when I should be making references to the "recoverySkill" variable, but I don't anticipate most people will be digging around my ugly code.

By the way, Zalarian's been doing some great work and new features that he's been sharing with me - I'll be implementing another version of my own Deck Handler with some of them in a week or so, including auto-generated card URLs (otherwise you can prod him to get his versions). If anyone strongly wants me to rethink my UI overhaul I made in 4.5, this is the best place to mention it. (Remember you can turn the cell-coloring-based-on-card-type off with a checkbox option, but the font and underlying cell colours will be the new standard moving forward for my Deck Handlers unless I know that people don't like it.)

Hi all! I've now developed Version 4.6 of my Deck Handler base. This one is directly aiming to respond to feedback given in this thread, as well as incorporate additional functions from Zalarian's and Rhynn Davrie's own modified Deck Handlers with their permission.

So first and foremost, a huge thank you to Zalarian and Rhynn Davrie! I really cannot make clear enough that most of this Deck Handler (besides the scripts) is just me packaging together ideas, code and suggestions from various people - after all, it's all built on cartmanbeck's base Deck Handler.

I'm also now linking the most recent Deck Handler base on my own profile to make it a bit more visible, as I'm quite happy with where it is now. (Even that was straight-up inspired by Zalarian!)

Before I go into the specific changes, I will make one thing clear. I no longer advise players to type card names purely in upper-case letters from this version onwards. Whilst it will still work normally, it will interfere with one of the new convenience functions, as described in the spoiler below.

What's new in Version 4.6?:
  • Card URLs are now automatically generated and point to the PACG Wiki for all of your cards by default. If you have your card name typed correctly, with a single space between each word (and append ' (Core)' if it's a Core version of an older card) then an auto-generated URL will point to the given PACG Wiki page, if it exists.
  • This won't always work, however. some cards might not be on the PACG Wiki (such as some Season AP Promo cards), or you may want to or have to add in a different card name (such as for duplicate cards), and the links are case-sensitive (inhibiting my previous "All-Caps" recommendation); if you still want to link them somewhere there's still the option for you to manually enter a URL to override whatever (faulty) URL is automatically generated.
  • This feature was originally developed by Zalarian.

  • Summary posts will now also include a spoiler listing your remaining deck, discard and buried cards, including breaking the cards in your deck into "Reloaded", "Unknown Order" and "Recharged" sections.
  • This feature is a modification of code originally developed by Zalarian, once again.

  • An optional Card Text Lookup feature has been implemented on request. Below your normal card area is a dropdown box; select an option from it, or paste/type the name of a card that's in your deck into it, and it'll list that card's Traits and Powers.
  • This doesn't work magically, however - this feature only works on your Deck Handlers if you enter the Traits and Powers of your cards into your "DON'T LOOK!" sheet yourself. It's more effort-intensive than the URLs (either manually or automatically added), but if you want to be able to read your own card texts from your own Deck Handler on the fly, this is your best bet.
  • The Card Text Lookup section takes up quite a bit of space, but it can be hidden easily - just press the 'minus' button around Row 26 and the entire section will elegantly collapse, and you an easily bring it out again later. The Card Traits/Powers columns on the "DON'T LOOK" sheet can similarly be revealed and hidden/collapsed with a similar button. This way, this feature can avoid taking up unnecessary space while you're not using it (or if you don't want to use it at all).
  • The Card Text Lookup also includes the automatic cell-colouring logic to reflect the card type selected. This will be turned off with the same checkbox that turns off normal cell recolouring.
  • Note that the Card Traits/Powers columns are hidden/collapsed by default, whilst the Card Text Lookup section is visible by default.
  • This feature is adapted from code originally developed by Rhynn Davrie.

  • "DON'T LOOK!" will now recolour all rows that do not correspond with your starting deck size. In other words, you can use the colour of the cell to tell at a glance whether a card started in your deck or was acquired mid-scenario (which means it would be entered in a different colour of cell). As you select more Card Feats in the Deck Handler, it'll recognise your larger deck size and recolour rows accordingly.
  • Right now it's purely visual, and only as some colour changes on the DON'T LOOK sheet. I'm happy to accept suggestions as to how to improve this if desired. I hope it serves as a simple, non-intrusive bit of added value.

  • An optional Chronicle Sheet tab has been added, and has been designed with post-Core gameplay in mind. Use it to track which scenarios you've completed, when you Tiered up, how you spent your Hero Points on feats and which Deck Upgrades you took!
  • This sheet was almost entirely taken by Rhynn Davrie, I just made some changes to bring it more in line with post-Core Chronicle Sheets, and made some new validation/dropdown box logic to handle Hero Point expenditure.

  • I also added some more dummy/example data to a Copy&Paste tab, for those who find it helpful to have a list of 'templates' to copy and paste from when building your turn. It's pretty bare-bones (other individuals have made far more refined variations on the idea), and it's largely up to individual players to personalise to suit their needs and interests.
  • In order to avoid bloating the number of tabs, and due to it's limited/conditional value, I've hidden it by default. Once you make an editable copy of my Deck Handler Base, press the 'all sheets' button on the bottom-left (right next to the "+" icon for making new sheets) to select and un-hide it.

  • Looks great, I'll definitely give this a whirl. Really like the implementation of the card text lookup. It's a lot fancier looking than mine. =)

    Not sure where I picked up the chronicle sheet but don't think the one I use I built. Might be Maelwys, but not positive on that. Think the only thing I did was color the Adventure completion lines to break it up. But thanks for including it as I do keep pretty complete records as I go.


    This is awesome Yewstance, thank you to you and everyone else who contributed on this project!
