I have added support for importing cards from the deck into the collection.
Simply use the already available Cards|Add to Collection menu when cards from the deck are selected. The selected cards will be copied to the collection with quantity equal to the sum of the copies in deck and sideboard.

Today I have just started coding on the new 1.6.2. It would take some while. Since adding all this information would require redesign in almost every module - Card Pool, Deck file format, Collection format, Rules.

Could you please specify whether this feature has been already introduced in 1.6.1 version or will be introduced in the 1.6.2?

As of now, "use ... Cards|Add to Collection menu when cards from the deck are selected" does not work. I am using a trial version for a couple of days. Maybe that is the reason?

And thanks for the good program. It really helps. Although a possibility to build decks from collection would be of great use.

Please, advise. I am building my collection using the card pool and I have 4 same cards and one of them is foil. How I can add foil and non-foil cards to the collection separately? Now they fall into one line in the collection.

You should add the card twice on two different rows. Row 1 will have Qty = 3, Foil = unchecked. Row 2 will have Qty = 1 and Foil = checked.

That is pretty clear :) . But how to do this in practice? The cards are added into one and the same row. If I check the box "foil" for the first transferred copy of the card, then all other copies are added as foils.

Whenever you add a card to the collection which already has been added a similar to the one below prompt message will appear:

Do you see such? If not I guess you have checked "Never ask again" option. If you wish to start appearing again delete your mtgstudio.conf file from the configuration folder.
