As my hold gets larger, and the number of custom variables increases, it gets more and more annoying that they're always at the top of the list, making it harder to find variables like _HP and _GR that I need to use all the time. Why can't custom variables come after all the others? I'd also prefer player variables to be at the very top of the list, but that's less important.

I second this, with a slight modification: Separate them.

Lower the top of the list box to make room above it on the widget for tabs. It would make so much more sense to me if user variables and system variables were kept separate, especially since some of the system variables are in the scope of the character (while all user variables are in the scope of the hold).

As a second request for the Custom Variables, can we have an additional variable (or two?) that are part of the _MyFoo style? This way we can have at least a limited per-instance variable scope?

Thanks

Mmm... yes, it would be nice to be able to, say, prefix var names with a @ or such to make each NPC have a different view of them, similarly to how _My variables work, except without directly affecting the gamestate.

That should really be added to the help files.
... and in an easy to find place, too! :angry
Edit: It doesn't work for me.

Ahhhh, but it works in our dreams. <3
And we have a yellow arrow pointing to the topic.

And in the end, isn't that what matters?

That was an actual feature request, not sarcasm. :P
