>Inventory Report, wich lists what cards are missing in what quantities
Will definitely be done.
>Showing the avg Capacity of a crypt search
It's always possible set capacity min/max caps and see result only withing desired range, so unfortunately this doesn't seem useful enough for me to be add.

>Also: maybe something I am doing wrong, but it seems tricky adding a second unit of any card - if I add a first unit of a card or a second one, the visual feedback is the same, so I am not sure if that is something that can be changed to be more clear?

The idea behind adding/changing cards in the inventory is (in addition to full-deck-add):
1) You add new card by the name from the field in the top. If you don't already have this card it will be added with 1 quantity. If you already have it, quantity will not change.
In both cases (you have it or it newly added) card will additionally appear (to it's natural place in inventory list) on the top for the convenience (so you don't need to look for it in the long list to change quantity, see below).
2) You change card quantity clicking [-] and [+] (in main inventory list OR newly spawned card line after you just add it).

Please let me know if this approach is OK.
I'm already thinking how to handle big changes. Optios are: +/-5 buttons, manual quantity enter, etc, I will test how it will affect interface and introduce it later (I want to keep interface as clean as possible from barely useful items).

@smeeag - thank you for the reply!

My difficulty with adding a second card is that if I am adding a second card, the name will appear at the top with quantity 1, same as the first one. So the only way for me to accurately register it is to scroll down the list to check if I have one in my inventory already. Otherwise one could keep assuming this is the first one I got, and long as they are being added one at a time, could end up never increasing the quantity.

I think the way around that is to either bring up the card on the first search with 0 quantity with the option to increase it, or maybe take you down to where it already is in the inventory list?

Maybe I am over-thinking it, but the rest of the app is so awesome, seems like a blemish :-)

I really like what you have done here!

Would it be possible to add the possibility to directly modify the count of a card by typing in a number somewhere? After starting to add my collection I realised it's really tedious to click 20+ times on the plus button for cards I own many copies of.

You mean if you already have X copies of the card in the inventory and you 'add' it by the name it appear at the top with 1 (not X) quantity?
This should not happen like this (at least I cannot reproduce it in both my old or new account), could you try to refresh the page to refresh the cache (in case some intermediate edition stuck in the memory)?

If you mean that new cards are added with quantity 1 by default, then that it planned behaviour. However, if you ALREADY have the card with any quantity, it will just appear on the top with existing quantity.
So basically by adding card by the name, you cannot break your existing quantity (if you have at least 1) and if you have several, then card is already on the top to change quantity.
Adding new card with 0 quantity is undesirable, as it will require additional click to just increase it to 1.

P.S. 'Adding' card by the name you already have in the inventory (and are sure about it) can also be abused to quickly check quantity (without scrolling or making search in crypt/library) as it will popup on the top without any changes to quantity. Not the recommended way, but who we are to judge you :)

Not sure the solution will be exactly like this (typing), but I'll try different approaches (I struggle too with clicks :) and pick something good.

@smeeag - nono, no issue with the wrong quantity being displayed, it's working exactly as intended.

It's only an issue if I have a second copy of a card, think i don't have it, go to add it, it comes up on top, exactly as if I added a first copy of a card. Basically with the current Inventory system I need to remember which cards I have only one of in order to be able to take them to two, otherwise I risk staying at quantity of one because the visual queue (card appearing with the quantity of 1) is exactly the same as if I added a new card.

Since the 1x cards are likely to be the more rare ones, it makes me less accurate at tracking more rare cards, which to me seems undesirable.

I concur, this is working as intended, but it is an ergonomic issue. I'll try to explain it more clearly.

I am entering my real-life inventory in VDB. To do so, I browse my cards manually, starting with one big pile on the left, taking the cards one by one and including them in VDB inventory, then put the card on the "done" pile on the right.

In the middle of this process, I draw a Giant Blood. Maybe I have one Giant Blood in inventory but I don't remember if it is the case. My inventory is 1200 cards long. I want to add the Giant Blood I just draw. I search for it in VDB inventory, it comes up on top with quantity one. How do I know if I had one in inventory already and the one I want to enter is the second one, or if I had none in inventory and this is the first ?
