    It's been asked for in the past yet the BOD book filter remains unchanged since it's introduction. The one thing missing is the ability to filter by armor type.

    Devs, please look into adding the ability to filter BODs by ringmail, chainmail, platemail, studded and bone.

    make filters stay with the book ... if I filter LBOD stuff for Iron 20s, I want that book to stay that way until I change it. I do not want to grab my plate book and have to redo the filter on it - which now would be large, iron, 20 from the LBODs.

    for armor type filtering why not try what I did? I have smalls in several books: fencing/swords, bashing/axes, polearms/other, shields, helmets, ring, chain, plate. All size smalls, all materials in the one book. LBODs are in another book or 2.

    Initially it takes a while to sort scrambled books but I can now grab exactly what I want easily.

    Yeah, I actually do keep BODs in books separated by type. The need to filter them by type though relates to the collecting and storing of the BODs initially before I've moved them to a Vendor or particular book.

    I gather BODs for a couple weeks usually, putting the BODs into a single book on each character. Then I switch their books and begin the long and boring process of sorting them. Having the option to filter the BODs by ring, chain, plate, etc. would go a long ways to speeding up the process.
