Unable to add a Familiar to a fighter who crossed class into sorcerer


Using SRD 3.5 for Players in PCGen 6.06.01. I have a level 4 character that is Fighter 3 and decided to cross class into sorcerer for level 4. When I attempt to create a new familiar, the program creates a new tabbed character (The companion) and asks me to roll HP for it. (so far so good). But after rolling HP the "Select a Race" Dialog remains open. And there is no companion to select. If I create a new sorcerer and attempt to add a familiar, everything works correctly. (IE: the box to the right fills with the familiar's info and the familiar can be switched to, to complete creation.)

Issue remains with fresh download of 6.07.01 AND when creating new character from scratch. I've uploaded the new character (File named same as old but with 'TEST' at the end) and a new screenshot (Capture8) showing the same issue. The "select a Race" dialog remains open after putting in the HP on the familiar pop up. You can see the new Familiar has been opened as a new tab on the bottom called "Unnamed 1". This tab DOES contain the Familiar chosen (A tiny Viper if that makes any difference) But it does not Link with the master and does not show in the pane to the right. The master character retains the link to "Select a Familiar" in the "to do" list of the main page.

That should be good enough for me to debug. It will likely take a few days (if not more) and I already have several PRs pending. That said, this does look pretty easy to debug/fix.

No rush. It's more of an annoyance than anything. Let me know if you need anything else with this. I've got time and a good deal of patience.

Any update on this at all?

Heya any chance you can take a look at this. Doesn’t exactly impact 2e PF, but would be nice to kick these bugs to the curb for anyone looking to pick up the project at a later date. Thanks!
