Something to be added at some point I guess. I couldn't find a mirrored list/table of resistances/abilities in the manual.

Thanks. I was not aware of that screen which is essentially what I was looking for but transposed from the equipable comparison screen - although I find the equipable comparison screen more friendly/tighter if it were not for the two letter abbreviations.

I looked at that subwindow config screen - definitely more friendly if you can fit it in - but that screen uses more than two letters for the column headings, which I realize you may not have the real estate to include. An alternative is simply to add more rows to the header, keep the text reading downward, and add more letters to match the rows you add

For example:

@                        ....
| e Dagger (1d4) (+0,+0) ....
Five rows would be the same length as the second character sheet screen. Might need to do some user testing to get the best approach (this vs. staggered). If there is room (not sure), whitespace would help also.

                         A E F C
                         c l i o
                         i e r l
                         d c e d
@                        . . . .
| e Dagger (1d4) (+0,+0) . . . .
Or alternating colors/shades (which saves the real estate), like:

@                        ....
| e Dagger (1d4) (+0,+0) ....

Oh...and BTW...I think I found a bug in the equipable comparison screen. Press 'r' twice (i.e. reverse twice) and there is an immediate exit from the program (v. 4.2.1).
