Character Builder - can I "filter" what I want to use?

when I create a character, can I select that I only want to use one/two books?

like "only give me the options for PHB1 & 2"

I seem to remember that in the old CB this was possible

I joke that D&D Next is what happens when, A Christmas Carol-like, 3rd & 4th edition's ghosts travel back in time to an evening near the end of AD&D 2E's life, and say "this is what is coming" and so AD&D 2E heads off in a different direction. So, it's like alt-reality AD&D 3rd, maybe?Cam Banks


I know you can edit by source for things like Feats, Themes, and even Items.  I've never really tried to do it for Races and Classes.

@mikemearls The office is basically empty this week, which opens up all sorts of possibilities for low shenanigans

@mikemearls In essence, all those arguments I lost are being unlost. Won, if you will. We're doing it MY way, baby.

@biotech66 aren't you the boss anyway? isn't "DO IT OR I FIRE YOU!" still an option?

@mikemearls I think Perkins would throat punch me if I ever tried that. And I'd give him a glowing quarterly review for it.

I had this very same question some time ago and sadly, no. There is no such option.
It was one my group really wanted to.

Unfourtunately, the only thing you can do is set the filter to "Source" and it will group things by book.
That should be doable in just about every instance from races and classes to feats and powers.

Unfortounately, all the other options will continue to be visible, and expended by default, obstructing view and increase the time necessary to get to the options you're looking for.
