I have recieved some feedback offline regarding the addition of new character states to existing traits or the addition of entirely new morphoscopic traits. Is this something that, if not possible now, will be possible in the future?

Hello Joe,

Since you are the primary creator of the Morphoscopics module for Osteoware, I would defer to your judgement on whether the requests for other character states and/or new traits, would be worthwhile additions.

Of course it is always possible to add new features to the module once validated, but they would be lower on the list of things "to do", such as a catkey import tool to get exisiting catalog/burial numbers into the database via an Excel spreadsheet.

Hope this answers your question.
