Page of Spell knowledge creating very long item names

Description

The "page of spell knowledge" has to be customized. And if done, it generates very long item names, which seem to be caused by some typo in the lst file about tab separation.

Sample from .pcg file:

EQUIPNAMEage of Spell Knowledge (Arcane/Page of Spell Knowledge (1st) (SPELLNAME&lbracket;Alarm&rbracket; CASTER&lbracket;Sorcerer&rbracket; SPELLTYPE&lbracket;Arcane&rbracket; SPELLLEVEL&lbracket;1&rbracket; CASTERLEVEL&lbracket;1&rbracket; ))|OUTPUTORDER:0|COST:1000.0|WT:0.0|QUANTITY:1.0|NOTE:|CUSTOMIZATION:[BASEITEMage of Spell Knowledge|DATA:NAME=Page of Spell Knowledge (Arcane/Page of Spell Knowledge (1st) (SPELLNAME&lbracket;Alarm&rbracket; CASTER&lbracket;Sorcerer&rbracket; SPELLTYPE&lbracket;Arcane&rbracket; SPELLLEVEL&lbracket;1&rbracket; CASTERLEVEL&lbracket;1&rbracket; ))$KEY=Page of Spell Knowledge (Arcane/Page of Spell Knowledge (1st) (SPELLNAME_Alarm_ CASTER_Sorcerer_ SPELLTYPE_Arcane_ SPELLLEVEL_1_ CASTERLEVEL_1_ ))$EQMOD=ADDTYPE&pipe;Arcane.Page of Spell Knowledge ~ 1st Level&pipe;SPELLNAME&lbracket;Alarm&rbracket; CASTER&lbracket;Sorcerer&rbracket; SPELLTYPE&lbracket;Arcane&rbracket; SPELLLEVEL&lbracket;1&rbracket; CASTERLEVEL&lbracket;1&rbracket;]

I’m not seeing any fundamental issue that the data team can solve. This is a code construct, and the format saved to the pcg file is likewise a code construct. The name is part of the code construct to give all information. Nothing for the data team to address here, and I doubt the code team will alter their end as well.

Just to add - the default display for that item is a bit of a pain but there’s an easy workaround if you edit the name property in the custom interface (eg Page of Spells [Alarm]). I found it more inconvenient that the chosen spell didn’t appear on the characters known spells list, so had to remember it existed when choosing what to cast during play.
