Card set ID's

Postby Arcady » Fri Aug 09, 2019 4:31 pm

Does this program still use non-standard (proprietary) set ID's for card collections, or does it use the standard 3 digit set ID's?

I purchased this program years ago but never used it since importing my current collection in took far too much manual effort to change all the set ID's. Considering trying again, but wanted to know first.

MTG Studio is still using the "unofficial" 2-3 letter abbreviations. The reason behind that is that many users for years had created decks using those before WotC started streamlining.

MTG Studio used abbreviations are documented at ... d_Editions

Do you have a reliable source for "official" abbreviations of:
* Summer Magic
* Renaissance
* Anthologies
* Astral
* Multiverse
* Digital Cards
* Box Topper
* Introductory
* Foreign Language
* Collector's Edition
* Collector's Edition - International
* Commander's Arsenal
* Amonkhet
* Face the Hydra
* Rivals of Ixalan
* Dominaria
* Ugin's Fate
* Welcome Deck 2016
* Archenemy: Nicol Bolas
* Kaladesh Inventions
* Welcome Deck 2017
* Amonkhet Invocations
* Explorers of Ixalan
* Battlebond
* Global Series: Jiang Yanggu and Mu Yanling
* Signature Spellbook: Jace
* Guilds of Ravnica Mythic Edition
* Game Night
* Guilds of Ravnica Guild Kits
* Signature Spellbook: Gideon
