GCA Reference - Templates Window
Help Contents | Reference Contents | Child Windows

This window allows you to manage templates for your character. You can add new templates by selecting them in the Available Templates list on the left side, and then clicking the Add button in the middle of the window. You can also double-click on an available template to add it to the character.

If you select a template in the Character Templates list on the right, you can remove it by clicking the Remove button in the middle of the window.

There are other icons you may find next to templates in the Character Templates list, as follows:

  The trait has missing prerequisites.
  The trait is taboo or has taboo qualities for this character. (You can see the details in the Edit window.)

You may even see two icons displayed at the same time. However, the taboo icon supersedes any other icons.

Near the bottom of the window, on the right side, there is a small group of buttons: the Edit button, a small button with a hammer & screwdriver icon, and an up/down button.

The Edit button will allow you to edit the currently selected item in the Template list. You can also call up the edit window by double clicking an item in the Template list..

The button with the hammer & screwdriver icon is the Modifiers button. It will call up the Modifiers window for the currently selected item directly.

The up/down button allows you to adjust the level of the currently selected item.

At the top of the window is a drop-down list. This allows you to change the category of traits viewed in the window. The default is ”All Categories.” If you change it to a specific category, you’ll only see items belonging to that category in both columns.

At the bottom of the window is a long, thin button with an up-caret icon. This will open and close the description area at the bottom of the window. If an item in the Available list has a description included, it will be displayed here when you click on it.
