PCGen 6.0.0 RC1-dev
Pathfinder Core only
Make sure that tools - preferences - equipment "load from lst files only" is selected.
Create new character, human fighter, 10 stats, go to equipment page, buy/sell = cashless, create a heavy shield +2 and "buy it". Save the character.
Exit PCGen, load up Pathfinder Core, load the character just saved. shield + 2 is in the character, but is not purchasable.
Create a second character, human fighter, go to equipment page. You can not find the shield +2 to purchase, however if you try to create another one to purchase, the popup says that it already exists.
Items in the .pcg file exist and are added to the character, but do not show up as "purchasable".
Hmm, this sounds like the bug I reported. I'd obviously forgotten that I'd closed down PCGen between making the custom item and subsequently not being able to give it to a second character. We closed that as we weren't able to reproduce the problem.
The preference "Save Custom Equipment to customEquipment.lst" needs to be unchecked to reproduce this issue.
The dataset's list of equipment is now refreshed after character load so that it picks up the custom equipment just loaded.
